Worship for Sunday October 24, 2021

Here is the link for Worship for this Sunday:  https://youtu.be/pQE0q4frJBE
This Sunday is in person worship.

We hold Gail and Gordon Smith in our prayers.

The gardeners and the Garden/Outreach committee extend their thanks to the generous congregation of Trinity for their support by contributing to the huge cost of water this summer. Without water, we cannot have gardens! In this summer of drought , your support is greatly appreciated.

This is the second week of the annual Stewardship Campaign and you will have received an email with the brochure. If you have any questions, or haven’t received it, please be in touch with any member of the Stewardship Committee or call the church office (204 269 1632)

The Outreach Committee would like you to know about some changes that have been made at West Broadway.
Instead of a lunch program, they are now serving hot dinners Monday through Thursday and are closed Fridays. This decision was made because there are other lunch programs in the neighborhood. Examples of the hot meals are pancakes and bacon, stews and pasta.

They have also made changes to the Emergency Food Pantry and now call it the Wish List Boutique. Now instead of just handing clients a bag of emergency supplies, they allow fully vaccinated individuals the opportunity to come inside and choose items they most need. Suggested items include canned meat, fruit and vegetables, preferably in pull-top cans and individual serving oatmeal packets along with peanut butter, rice, pasta, beans, canned stew, cereal, etc are always needed.

Any of the mentioned items will be accepted at Trinity and delivered to West Broadway, once a week. 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.

Programs at Trinity please be in touch with Elizabeth or Irma:
Bible Study: Mondays 7-8pm on Zoom
The Big Question: 1st Sunday of the month; October 3rd 9:30-10:30am on Zoom
Holy Yoga: Saturdays 10-11am followed by coffee and conversation until noon on Zoom
Trinity Walkers:  October 19 & 21 we will walk the Transit Corridor towards Jubilee starting from my condo complex at 873 Waverley St. Please park in the visitor parking lot.

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.

New this week!! 
SSCFF is beginning their programs for in person and simultaneously on zoom! Mondays are Yoga with Wynn; Tuesdays are exercise with Suni; both are offered 1:30-2:30pm. If you are attending in person, we must follow the health orders for that program. Please talk to Irma for details or to join either program, either way. 

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. 

Bomber parking and crosswalks: the Bombers have made the playoffs! Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who have signed up for all regular and playoff games! 

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 on Thursdays and is available until the following Wednesday.  

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,Elizabeth

Following a meeting on September 8th, the Board prayerfully decided to begin in person, indoor service at Trinity every second Sunday; the next in person, indoor worship is September 26th.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, beginning October 4, 2021 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.
