Trinity this week – Remembrance Sunday – November 6, 2022

Hello Trinity Friends,
Please join us this Sunday at 10:30 am for our Remembrance Sunday service.  The JOY Band will be helping to lead our music and will play a medley of Remembrance music before the service.  There will be a Remembrance ceremony during worship where we will honour and remember those men and women who died in service to this country.  If you are unable to join us in the Sanctuary please join us via livestream Trinity’s YouTube Channel or on Cogeco’s YourTV the following week.

This weekend Daylight Saving Time ends. Please remember to turn your clocks back an hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

The sympathy of the congregation is extended to Maurice and Eunice Laporte on the death of Maurice’s brother, Alec on Thursday, October 27th here in North Bay.

Below are a few announcements and some upcoming events for your calendar.  

AOTS Gift Cards We give gratitude for the dedicated work that AOTS member Ed Rose put into the AOTS Gift Card program.  Rob Brownlee will be submitting the next order for gift cards this Sunday November 6th.  You can give your orders to him at church on Sunday or drop them off in his mailbox – he and the Roses share a driveway.  Gift Cards make wonderful Christmas gifts!  If you haven’t participated in this wonderful program before please talk to Rob.  Gift Cards for groceries, gas, restaurants, hardware, coffee and more can be purchased.  Thank you for your continued support of the program!  

Advent Newsletter For any committees or groups – please note that the deadline to submit items to the newsletter is Sunday November 13th.  Please send your items to Ross.  Email address available by request.

The UCW Christmas Bazaar – Saturday November 19th from 1 – 3 pm
To make it a success, we need your help. Please sign up on the list posted downstairs in the Fellowship Hall for sandwiches, squares/cookies for the tea tables. We would also appreciate your donations for the bake table and craft tables. This year, it will be “scaled down” with everything downstairs in the Fellowship Hall, and the Nursery. There will be NO White Elephant Table or book/magazine table. We look forward to everyone’s attendance on Nov. 19th between 1 and 3. See you there! 

Cookie Walk Bakers and cookie tins needed. On Sat November 26th the 4 Trinity group will be having their annual Cookie Walk. We are in need of cookie tins and bakers.  Cookie tins can be dropped off at the church anytime during office hours. Cookies can be dropped off at the church on Friday November 25th.
