Trinity this week – Pentecost Sunday – May 19, 2024

Hello Trinity Friends,

We will kick off this Sunday’s worship with the Mustard Seed Theatre kids sharing a song from Jonah’s Druthers. Be sure to come a little early so you don;t miss it! This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday

 – we encourage you to wear your Pentecost colours (red, orange or yellow).  

Thank you to Rev. Lillian Roberts who has been keeping our Sanctuary tastefully and thematically decorated!  

Lift up your voices in a big Hurrah!  Our Lift repairs have been completed and inspected and we are back in service!  

This week’s bulletin is jam packed with events and announcements, once again!  Here are a few highlights:

Dinner and a Show – Saturday May 25th

Come out and support the Friends of Camp Caritou and enjoy a pizza pasta casserole dinner and then stay for the Mustard Seed performance of Jonah’s Druthers (the story of Jonah told and sung with a spagetti western twist).

Dinner is served from 4:30 – 6:30 ($15 Adults, $5 Children)

Jonah’s Druthers starts at 7 (Tickets $10 Adults, $5 Children)

Lunch and a Matinee – Sunday May 26th

Following worship, plan to stay for a sandwich lunch hosted by the UCW! We all know that church sandwiches are the best!  Then stay for the matinee performance of Jonah’s Druthers at 1 pm.
