Moment for Trinity – Tuesday February 15, 2022

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

We hold in our prayers Marguerite and we’re grateful she has angels with her.

We celebrate with Ken Johnson as he received the Mentorship Award from the MVMA. The Mentorship Award was created in 2021 to celebrate and honour members that demonstrate excellence in supporting colleagues and those wishing to enter the professions. Here is the link to Ken’s acceptance:

Scripture to ponder for the week: Jeremiah 17:7-8: Blessed are those who trust in God, whose trust is God. They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.”

Scripture for February 20, 2022: Genesis 45:3-11,15; Psalm 37:1-11,39-40; I Corinthians 15:35-38,42-50; Luke 6:27-38

As we move through the season after the Epiphany we are reminded we are not alone, we are chosen, and called to listen for God’s voice, for God’s call in our lives. How can we make space to hear the voice of God in our lives this week? How do we live into this call from Jesus that might be difficult to make real?

Programs at Trinity: most programs (Trinity Walkers, SSCFF  yoga) will resume in January. 

Bible Study: resumes Monday January 10th 7-8pm – come join this group of diverse, unique folks as we explore the scriptures for the coming Sunday, lending your voice to the message for the week; contact Elizabeth for the invitation

SSCFF Yoga: resumes Monday January 17 1:30-2:30pm –  Incorporates adaptable postures, movement and meditation

Holy Yoga: resumes Saturday January 15 10-11am followed by coffee –  Prayer, meditation and movement are incorporated, with a time of fellowship following practice.    .

Both practices are “beginner friendly” and offer adaptations to suit all levels.   All are welcome. Due to the current Covid situation, all classes will be offered on the Zoom platform until further notice. If you are interested in exploring holy yoga, or SSCFF yoga, contact the Trinity office, or Irma Nadeau to receive the Zoom link. Questions?  Contact Wynn Ferguson at

PrayerMay we, your children, be a blessing to our neighbours and our communities as we give from all we have received. Amen


We need your help! This is the time of year when we search for folks who are willing to serve Trinity in the many volunteer opportunities available. We wonder if you will prayerfully consider where you might offer your gifts of time, talent and skills to enable ministry and mission to happen:

The Nominations committee is looking for folks to serve the board; a short description is provided which is not exhaustive but does give you an idea of what they do:

Deputy Chair of the Board – you would share this position and work with another person to learn to chair the board; meets 8 times a year on the 4th Wednesday evening with an Executive meeting the Wednesday before; is a member of the Executive which usually meets 8 times a year; participates in the discussion and decision making of the board;

Board Secretary: you would attend and take minutes at the board meeting following United Church guidelines and ensure they are properly saved and stored at Trinity; before the meeting, you would receive reports and send out an agenda and any reports.

Following a meeting on December 23, the Board prayerfully decided to cancel all in person worship and have staff work from home except for essential tasks.

Trinity United Church continues to offer weekly YouTube 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.
