Moment for Trinity – Tuesday April 5, 2022

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

We have in person worship every Sunday at 10:45am; please bring your QR code and wear a mask. Recorded worship and Sermon by phone will continue as normal and all services will be the same. Call up your friends and let them know! Full details of the new guidelines are at the end of this email.

We hold in our prayers the people of the Ukraine and other Eastern European countries as they face the invasion of their country by Russia. If you’d like to donate through

the United Church, please go to this page:  for information about what they are doing and how to donate.

Canada Foodgrains Bank is also accepting donations at:  Thank you.

Trinity has sent a letter of support to local Ukrainian churches reminding them we are with them and praying for the people of Ukraine.

We watched this video two years ago as COVID has us staying at home; it was sent to make us smile as we negotiate the newest changes as we gather in person.

FAQ about Sabbaticals: Who will be attending meetings while Elizabeth is away on sabbatical? The Sabbatical Advisory Group (SAG) and the Board are in the process of hiring a Minister to work 10 hours a week who will attend the Executive and Board meetings and any committee who needs them while Elizabeth is away. Zoom meetings can be set up by calling the office. 

Scripture to ponder for the week: 2 Corinthians 8:9-10: He gives generously to the needy: his kindness lasts forever.  And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and produce rich harvest from your generosity.”
