Moment for Trinity – Tuesday November 16, 2021

Here is the video for the Trinity moment for this week:   https://youtu.be/-TcQRJnEz88

We hold Helen Woloschuk and her family in our prayers on the death of her husband Steve last week.
We hold Bev and Bernie Wiens and their family in our prayers as they travel this difficult path. 

Thank you! to all who prayerfully filled out their pledge forms and returned them to Trinity. It’s not too late to get it in if you haven’t already; print off page 2 and fill it out, mail it or drop if off at the church. You may also call the office and we will record your wishes. We are grateful for every gift given to the mission and ministry of Trinity.

Beginning to think about Christmas gifts? Check out the Gifts with Vision catalogue at: www.giftswithvision.ca or call the office for a printed copy for great ideas that reflect our faith and caring for others. 

Scripture to ponder for the week: Isaiah 61:2a : “He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favour has come.
Scripture for Sunday November 21, 2021: 2 Samuel 23:1-7; Psalm 132:1-18; Revelation 1:4b-8; John 18:33-37

PrayerGod, what would you have of me today?Give me your worries. All of them. Pray them into my spirit… Sing them to me… Moan them out of you… Entrust them to me. Breathe them to me – release them with each exhale. Today, accept this divine exchange: my peace for your worries. Breathe in peace. Fill yourself with its lightness of being. Today will be a beautiful day; don’t worry.  (David Preston Sharpe, Power for Life)

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 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.
