Thank you!

Our Children’s Christmas Eve service was spectacular and it would not have been possible without the help of so many.  Thank you to all of our teachers and volunteers who helped to make the evening so special.  Thank you to all of our kids who shared their talents with so many and so beautifully shared the good news that “Jesus is Born!” with over 800 visitors! Thank you to all of the parents who stepped up to help with stage crew, greeting, communion, handing out goody bags, and more! Thank you to all of you who so patiently waited while we safely got your kids out of their costumes and ready to head out for your Christmas Eve celebrations.  We hope that you had a blessed holiday! Take a look through the pictures from the evening and feel free to download any for your own use.

Chili Cook-Off – Sunday, January 20

Don’t miss the chili cook-off! You won’t have to worry if it’s cold outside on Sunday, January 20, because you’ll be warm and cozy tasting all kinds of chili and drinking hot beverages at our 7th annual chili cook-off immediately following late services. Sign up at https://www.timetosignup.com/trinitycamphill (click on “Fellowship Dinners”) or in the Gathering Space. Make a pot of chili, or bring cornbread, or help set up/clean up, or just attend! Win prizes for Traditional and Non-Traditional chili, or compete just to get bragging rights for next year. Enjoy the Hot Cocoa Bar (bring your favorite mug) and have your picture taken with the Dancing Chili Peppers. Maybe we’ll even have a spontaneous kids’ dance party!

What’s on Your Christmas List?

You probably have lots of vivid memories that come to mind when you remember celebrating Christmas as a kid.

• Bundling up in the car to look at the neighbors’ lights.
• Decorating the tree while listening to Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole.
• Making Christmas sugar cookies with Grandma . . . and leaving enough icing so you can lick the bowl. (Read More)

An Imperfect Christmas

It’s no secret that Christmas can be one of the most stressful times of the year.

And the tension is that by this point, Christmas Eve, all the ‘how to avoid stress’ tips from the I’ve-got-everything-together-why-don’t-you people seem too little too late:

• Start your shopping early. (Some of you are reading this on your phone at the mall. There are three more shopping hours till Christmas, right?)
• Eat in moderation. (But you’ve already been to six Christmas parties, and Christmas has barely begun.)
• Spend less. (You tried. Really tried.) Read More)

Blending Families During the Holidays

It was our first Christmas Eve, the dishes were piled in the kitchen after a traditional New Mexican meal of Posole and fresh-made tamales. The tree was glistening and Christmas music filled the house.  Fresh baked cookies and homemade candies overflowed tins to the delight every sweet tooth in the house. Every detail was perfect… but every heart, was a little on edge.  See, it was our first Christmas together as a newly blended family. Even as I write these words, a lump forms in my throat thinking about all the emotions associated with those first few holidays as a new “blending” family.
