Worship from Trinity June 13, 2021

There are some new, important items in the email for you to read and know about; please take a minute to scroll down to see them.


Here is the link to the Worship service for Sunday, June 13, 2021: https://youtu.be/7Fm2lhVQMsM

We welcome and thank Reverend Dr. Paul Campbell for leading us in worship in this week. Paul mentions donations to St. Andrew’s and you can donate here: https://stu.usask.ca/standrews/donors-alumni/donatenow.php
From Paul: “In my brief introduction to Theological Education in today’s worship, I failed to mention two very important centres:The Centre for Christian Studies is a training centre for Diaconal ministry here in Winnipeg; and the Saulteaux Spiritual Resource Centre is a training location for candidates training for ministry among/within our Aboriginal community, located just outside of Beausejour. Along with seminaries for ordained candidates, these two Canadian schools offer vitally important preparation programs for ministry candidates.”

Elizabeth is on study leave from June 7-13 and working from home.

Trinity Trek to Turkey (Winnipeg) – The Prairie to Pine Youth and Young Adults (YAYA) are raising funds to help sponsor a family from Turkey with Young United Church and Trinity has a team! You can join our team as an individual and add your steps between June 14th-19th to the total (they are aiming for 900 kms total which is 1/10th of the distance from Turkey to Winnipeg) or by donating to our team (they are aiming for $8,000 total). In this time when we are mourning, lamenting and wondering about our faith and our world, this is a positive “step” to follow Jesus’ example of compassion, unconditional love, and sharing with others. If you have any questions, please be in touch with Elizabeth or Angela (204 897 2253).

To add your steps, Register here!  After registration you will receive information about how to join the Pacer app.  

To donate: choose the Trinity Trek to Turkey (Winnipeg) team here: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/young-united-church/p2p/trecktoturkey/team/trinity-trek-to-turkey-wpg/ 
thank you!


We hold the family of Carol Rohringer in our hearts as she died last week in Saipan where she was with her family.
We hold Allison and Gordon Challis in our hearts as they celebrated the life of Allison’s brother Murray last week. 

A message from the Moderator, Richard Bott: Tonight, I join the many across Canada to condemn the act of religiously motivated hatred and violence that place in London, Ontario, on Sunday – the murder of a Muslim family and an act of terror against Islam. Let us be with all those who mourn. Let us use all that we have and all that we are, to stand in the face of evil that would allow and cause this crime of hatred. Even as one man has been arrested for his actions, let us uncover and work against the belies, the worldview, the racism and hatred that supported his choice. May the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful God dwell with those who have died, in paradise, and give patience and blessing to those who mourn this time of trial. 

We at Trinity extend our gratitude to Dallis Kelly whose resignation, effective June14, we have accepted with regret. We remember fondly Dallis’ presence as our office administrator and we wish her well moving forward. Here is a short video of her presentation: https://youtu.be/USSAqTAstNQ.

Knox United Church has been chosen as a pop-up vaccine clinic for this Thursday Jun 10th from 11-3pm! Their minister, Lesley Harrison, is wondering if Trinity folks would like to volunteer to help out? Volunteers would need to have had their first vaccine, have a good comfort level in a busy environment (always respecting social distancing), be willing to wear full PPE including masks and face shields (all PPE and hand sanitizer is provided), and be willing to work a 2 hour shift (either 11-1pm OR 1-3pm). Free parking is available. If you’re interested or have questions, please call Elizabeth at home (204 275 0014) as soon as possible and before Thursday morning. Thank you!

In response to the discovery of 215 children’s remains at the Kamloop, BC Residential School last week, the Board of Trinity United decided at its meeting on June 2nd, to donate $215 to the United Church Healing Fund. The Healing Fund, established in 1994, is a grant that supports healing initiatives in Indigenous communities to address the ongoing impacts of the residential school system. Many name a need for mending, restoring, and celebrating—a sense of loss, along with hope for rebuilding identity.If you’d like to know more about this fund and donate to this fund individually, please go to: https://united-church.ca/community-and-faith/being-community/indigenous-ministries/healing-fund and scroll down to the “donate online” or the address to send a cheque.

Have you wondered how worship services at Trinity are produced? Would you like to learn how to record services for Trinity? We are looking for volunteers who would like to learn how to record using the new video camera, sometimes edit the recording, and upload the recording to youtube. Although it sounds difficult, with a few lessons, you can master the fine art of this important part of our online worship experience! Please be in touch with Elizabeth if you’d like to explore this opportunity.

Irma sends a picture of the quilt her sister-in-law made: sending you a picture of the quilt that my sister-in-law gifted me with. It reminds me of Pentecost. It will remind me of my sermon and that the holy spirit is always with me.

Scripture: Romans 8:26-27. In certain ways we are weak, but the Spirit is here to help us. For example, when we don’t know what to pray for, the Spirit prays for us in ways that cannot be put in words. All our thoughts are known to God. 

Prayer: Holy, creating God, in this season of Pentecost we experience your spirit everywhere. In extraordinary and ordinary moments, we know you are active in our world. May we add our actions to yours so that your love may be known everywhere. Amen

Scripture: Scripture: I often think of the heavens your hands have made, and of the moon and stars you put in place. Then I ask, “Why do you care about us humans? Why are you concerned for us weaklings?” You made us a little lower than you yourself, and you have crowned us with glory and honour.
