Trinity this week – Robbie Burns Day – January 21, 2024

This Sunday January 21st at 10:30 am, we celebrate Robbie Burns Day in worship.  There will be a few special additions to our worship service, special readings, bagpipes and the choir’s mini musical “Jonah-man Jazz”. 

Next week following the service, we hope you will stay for a special lunch and learn about legacy giving, led by Rev. Melody Duncanson-Hales.  Lunch is provided by the UCW. You’ll receive a United Church “Will Workbook,” and have the opportunity to ask questions about wise and effective charitable avenues to fit your wealth and your values!
