Moment for Tuesday January 24, 2023

Here is the link for the moment:

As you have read in the weekly bulletin, Gerta de Jong is stepping down from her role as bookkeeper for Trinity United Church after many years of dedicated service. Bookkeeping is a critical role in the ongoing operation of the church, and we need to ensure there is someone available to fill Gerta’s shoes.  The role does not require formal accounting training – it simply requires someone with a good head on their shoulders who has some basic numerical and computer skills (training will be provided!).  The time commitment is typically in the range of 5 hours per week, but is very flexible as to when these hours are spent.

As you are also aware, Trinity finds itself in a difficult financial position this year. If we are unable to find a volunteer to take on the bookkeeper role, it will be necessary to pay someone to perform this function. Our rough estimate is that this will cost the church around $5000 per year.  Again, as noted, we can not operate without these functions being performed.

Therefore, we are hopeful that someone from the Trinity membership will be able to kindly volunteer their time for this important role.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the responsibilities, skills required, and training / shadowing that will be provided.  Please contact the Trinity office at or 204 269 1632 if you are able to assist or need more information. 

Thank you for prayerfully considering this opportunity,

It’s almost time for the Annual Report! please have your reports in to the office by February 1st.

We hold in prayer community members and families as we mourn Rebecca Contois, Morgan Harris, Marcedes Myran, and Mashkode Bizhiki’ikwe and all Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

We hold in prayer those who have been devastated by Hurricane Fiona, including the people in the Maritimes. 

We hold in prayer Lorraine Antosh as she is in hospital.

We continue to hold the people of James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby village of Weldon, Saskatchewan in our prayers.

The Stewardship Committee reminds you that the office has been sending out the tax receipts; if you’d like a copy mailed to you, please contact the office.  

We are grateful to Isabel and Ed Tymofichuk and Ken and Elaine Johnson for cashiering this Sunday.  

Scriptures for Sunday; Micah 6:1-8; Psalm 15; I Corinthians 1:18-31; Matthew 5:1-12

Scripture to ponder: Psalm 42:1-2: As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God?

PrayerLoving God, open us to your vision for living, open us to your understanding of justice and strengthen us to do our part.  Amen
