Moment for Trinity – Tuesday October 12, 2021

Here is the video for the Trinity moment for this week:

We hold Norma Daly and her family in our prayers on the death of John Daly.

We continue to hold Bev and Bernie Wiens in our prayers as Bev has chemo.

We hope that everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving weekend! We know it was likely different from previous years but we hope and pray that you were able to connect (in some way) with those you love and that everyone was well and safe.

We know that many people have suffered loss during the past 18 months as we have lived very different lives. Family members and friends have died both from COVID and other health issues; others have experienced losses that are emotional, physical, and spiritual; all these losses have and will continue to affect us and it’s good to acknowledge them. On Sunday October 31, we’ll celebrate “All Saints Day” when we will name those losses, light candles, reflect on our faith and hold each other in prayer. If you have had a loss and would like it to be included in this service, you may email or phone Elizabeth by October 24th.

Scripture to ponder for the week: 1 Timothy 2:1: First of all, I ask you to pray for everyone. Ask God to help and bless them all, and tell God how thankful you are for each of them.

A reminder that we continue to collect fruit, granola bars and juice boxes that are delivered to West Broadway Community Ministry for their supper program. The cart is outside for donations Sunday to Friday mornings from 9-1pm (except holidays). Call the church at 204-269-1632 to arrange alternate times to drop off donations.

Scriptures for Sunday October 17, 2021: Job 38:1-7; Psalm 104:1-9, 24, 35c; Hebrews 5:1-10; Mark 10:35-45. This week is recorded worship.

We are looking for someone to help out with the payroll duties for Trinity. Everything is now online and tasks are twice a month. Please be in touch with Gerta or the office if you would like to help out or know someone who has these skills or might want to learn. 

Programs at Trinity are now resuming:
Bible Study: Mondays 7-8pm on Zoom
Holy Yoga: Saturdays 10-11am followed by coffee and conversation until noon on Zoom
Trinity Walkers: October 12th & 14th let’s walk Fort Whyte. I will be parking near the McGillivray entrance near Front St and Sigma Ave. As always, if you have any questions or know of a place that you enjoy walking do not hesitate to phone or email and let me know.. All walks start at 9:30 and please call me prior to our walk so that we can walk together.

Bomber parking and crosswalks: the Bombers are cautiously optimistic that we may make the play offs this year and would like us to find folks for the two games:
Sunday November 28 with a 3:30pm game start time – our start time will be earlier
Sunday December 5 with a 3:30pm game start time – our start time will be earlier
If you’d like to volunteer for these games, please be in touch with Irma or Marilyn.

Sermon by Phone: Listen to the recording of Sunday worship each week by calling a local phone number (204 410 1384); please share this information with your friends who don’t have internet access; the recording is uploaded each week on Thursday and will be available until the following Wednesday. 

Prayer: Creator God, in the holy mystery that is you, we search for ways to describe our relationship with you, with Jesus and with others. We discover that it is beyond our words yet still we try! May the awesome beauty of your creation remind us of your amazing power in our world. Amen.

Know that we are praying for each one of you as you find your way through this time. If you have comments, suggestions, or any thoughts about worship or how you’re doing, please be in touch. Trinity is here for you and we will respond. May you know God’s presence and peace with you as we continue to move through this new reality,


Following a meeting on September 8th, the Board prayerfully decided to begin in person, indoor service at Trinity on September 12, 2021. This motion was passed:

In-person, indoor worship must ensure: Contact tracing information gathered; COVID screening questions asked; Mandatory masking; Hand sanitizer use; Social distancing between families and individuals; No singing during service; Main floor sanitized following service;

For the safety and health of all people attending in-person indoor worship at Trinity United Church, Trinity United Church strongly advises that everyone attending in-person indoor worship be fully vaccinated. We cannot guarantee you will not contract COVID while attending worship.

If you are unable to attend in-person indoor worship, Trinity United Church continues to offer weekly You tube services; Sunday School kits for at-home Sunday School; monthly Zoom gatherings for senior Sunday School/Youth Group, as well as weekly/monthly programs such as walking group, Yoga and Bible Study.

IMPORTANT PROVISO: The above Motion must be in full compliance with current and future provincial Public Health Orders.

According to the current Manitoba Public Health Orders we can have 100 people on the main floor. Volunteers will be available to help you at 10:15 am (asking COVID questions, contact tracing, hand sanitizing, ushering, etc.). Check out our great new carpeting in the Sanctuary.
