Two important notices for upcoming services at Trinity United Church

Christmas greetings from Trinity United Church,

Because of the newest health orders that come into effect on Monday December 20 at midnight, we have some important news for you.

The first important note is from Bernie Wiens and his family about the celebration of Bev Wiens life on December 21 at 10am:
To our friends and family,
Please be your own judge of whether to attend the celebration of Bev’s life. We wished that everyone could be there to celebrate, but due to the new health restrictions this will not be possible. The capacity at the church is now 150 people. We have a very large family and many close friends who we would all want to be present, but seats will be very limited. With that being said, we do not want to make the decision of who can or cannot attend to service. Please understand how difficult this time has been already and has now become more difficult with these new restrictions. The celebration will be recorded and will be available for those who are unable to attend or choose to view from home. Please contact any of the family members for a link to the celebration. Thank you and God bless,
Bernie and Family 

The second important note is from the Executive of the Board who met today and decided the following:

Our capacity at church will, on Tuesday, be 150 people. Therefore, there will be TWO services on Christmas Eve (December 24), one at 5pm and one at 7pm along with our regular recorded Christmas Eve service available on December 23. All services will be the same and about half an hour in length. All people who attend worship at Trinity must be fully vaccinated and have their QR code and ID at the door. All children must be with and stay with the adult that brings them. The building will be sanitized between services and there will be volunteers on hand to help.

If you’d like to attend one of the two Christmas services, you must register by calling the church office (204 269 1632), telling us:your name and phone number,how many people will attend (including children),and which service you’d like to attend.

Unless we call you back, you will be registered and able to attend the service you register for. If, after you register, your numbers change or you decide not to come, please notify us right away. Registration is ONLY for the Christmas eve services. 

We know that everyone is trying to figure out how to celebrate Christmas in a way that is safe and meaningful for all your families. We are praying for all of you and want you to know that we take these steps prayerfully and with great care. Thank you for your continued support and love as we make our way through these difficult times. If you need to talk about this or anything that is on your heart, please be in touch with Elizabeth.

blessings of the Christmas season,

The Executive of the Board
Barb Poustie, Terry DeLong, Leah Hes, Susan Delaney, Barb Tallman, Gerta de Jong
