Moment for Tuesday September 27 2022

The Tuesday moment video can be found here: https://youtu.be/91425s4tJfI (Presentation to Bert Johnson). 

A message from our Ministry and Personnel Commitee: Sunday, September 25 was Bert Johnson’s last service with us as Choir Director. On behalf of our congregation, Joy Bamford expressed our appreciation of Bert’s work and presented him with a gift of a beautifully crafted stained glass hanging. Joy acknowledged Bert’s long-time dedication as Choir Director, organist, and then as Music Director for more than two years of virtual worship in which he contributed greatly to the recorded wondrous music and song. We wish Bert well in all as he sets out to do with study, work, and family.

DID YOU KNOW??

The Trinity Youth Group met on Sunday at the church last Sunday for their annual ladder ball game and the parents won! They enjoyed pizza after!

On Friday, September 16, Trinity’s Garden Committee celebrated the fall harvest with our gardeners. With approximately 125 persons (about half were children) in the Lower Hall due to the rainy conditions outside, there was a buzz of excitement as all participated in a meal of hot dogs, chips, veggies, and drinks.  Tim Horton’s donation of hot chocolate and timbits was very much appreciated. The children enjoyed a craft table and games. Gratitude was expressed by many of the gardeners for the opportunity that they have to be a part of Trinity’s Community Garden. Besides growing their own vegetables, the garden provides them with a purpose and means of being part of the community.
