We say good-bye to Steve Taplin as he works his last day in the office on July 15. We will miss him and wish him well as he begins work at Westworth United Church. 

A message from Steve

It is with bittersweet emotions that I am announcing my resignation as your administrator with Trinity United Church.

Last year when I was searching for a job, I asked the Lord to surround me with Christians, and He brought me here to TUC.

And though I give God all the glory, I also thank God for Irma, Nancy and Carolyn, who interviewed me and gave me this opportunity to serve the people of Trinity United Church;

But not only these, for all the people of Trinity United Church that I met, I thank God for:

Minister Elizabeth, who takes care of this church like a parent takes care of a child.  

Bert Johnson who tirelessly performs our hymns every week.

And for the multitude of volunteers who are called to minister in all the various events at TUC of whom I am in awe of, for their like-mindedness and enthusiasm to provide for the sanctuary, the place of worship and the fellowship they love.

I will continue to be surrounded by Christians as I start as the new administrator at Westworth United Church; 

And I will think of my blessings and that I had the privilege to serve all of you at Trinity United Church.

Keep the Lord in your hearts continually.

Steve Taplin
