Advance Directive

Preparing an advance directive:  An advance directive is a broad term designed to help us make plans for those we leave behind.   This kind of program, or its equivalent, has not been presented for Trinity’s worshipers in over 15 years. For this reason two time periods from 10:ooam to 10:45am on both Sunday, October 23 and Sunday, October 30 have been reserved for these presentations in Mehaffey Hall.  Some materials may be available to accompany each presentation.  Current plans are for the program to be presented only one time, so mark your calendars. Coffee and light refreshments may be available.

October 23 will include (A) health directives for hospital, hospice care, living will, power of attorney, estate planning, and last will and testament.  Dave Eldridge, a practicing attorney, will deal with this segment.  This period also includes (B) planning expressions of sympathy, flowers, and memorial gifts. Del Smith will cover these topics.

October 30 will address (A) the specifics of planning the memorial service.  Rev. Watson will make this presentation, and (B) body preparation, funeral home, burial, cremation, vault, and casket requests.  Rev. Scott will address these issues.   (Membership and Evangelism Committee)

For those of you who are interested, but are unable to attend Trinity’s two 45-minute programs, a day-long program is being offered to the public at the Old Yacht Club (across the street from Trinity) from 9:00am to 4:00 pm on Wednesday, October 5.  It is free to the public, and overflow parking is authorized to park in Trinity’s parking lots.  A cash bar may be available at the Old Yacht Club.

Trinity Christmas tree adjustments

From Shirley Wilson:

Since we have replaced our Christmas tree with a much smaller version this year, we will need to cycle out our large Chrismon ornaments. We will place those on a table in the narthex Sundays, September 18 and October 2.  If you were one of the original artisans who made them, please feel free to take them home. They are lovely and all the work that went in to making them is greatly appreciated. Chrismon Committee

Bridge players wanted

Trinity’s Twilight Bridge Group is looking for fresh blood.  While the group has been operating for decades, advancing years and slipping memory has transformed the group into a super social club.  We still play bridge from September through April, with gatherings arranged once a month at designated host home.  Each gathering includes four couples who rotate around two tables of six bridge-hands each.  The highlight of each bridge season is the Seven No-trump Buffet which features Presbyterian libations, a feast fit for kings, and awards too good to be true.  Interested individuals or couples should call Yerdis Trexler (386 446-3723,  Email: yerdistrexler@gmail.com) to be included on the pairings schedule in September.

An Organ Concert

A MOTHER’S DAY TREAT
AN ORGAN CONCERT
SUNDAY, MAY 8, 2016
4:00 PM
TRINITY PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH PRESENTS
HEASUK CHE
ORGANIST IN CONCERT

 . . . . Plan your Mother’s Day celebration with church, 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00.
At 4:00 pm, the congregation and the community of Palm Coast are invited to enjoy a special organ concert in the sanctuary by Trinity’s organist, Heasuk Che.
Her program will consist of selections from various organ music composers and styles. Pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, and some church hymns, are to be followed by a few modern classics that should be familiar to all.
. . . . Heasuk does her own arranging for some of the music she plays at a worship service. You can tell that when her name appears on the title line.
. . . . Heasuk learned to play the piano at an early age and majored in organ music at Chongshin University in Seoul, Korea graduating with a Master of Music degree – Church Music (Pipe Organ).
. . . . In addition to devoting the necessary time to her music responsibilities at Trinity she began preparing for this concert in early September, 2015.
Christmas music is her favorite but she also has favorite hymns such as Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing and Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
When asked what it was like to come to America, she replied that she had always dreamed of coming to America. She learned some English by watching American television drama shows, particularly General Hospital. She has seen The Sound of Music over twenty times.
. . . . Heasuk has always used her talent for playing the organ to the Glory of God. She will share that gift in this concert setting.
. . . . She wants to show her appreciation to the Trinity congregation by sharing her music with them.
