Trinity – Sunday February 2nd – February 8th

Hello Trinity Friends!

This Sunday we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion. At Trinity we have an “open table,” where all people, regardless of age or denomination, are invited to receive communion. Communion is served early in the service while young people are still present. 

Young people will then continue downstairs for their Sunday School time.  They will be starting a rotation on Matthew 5: 13 – 16 “Salt and Light”

Following the worship service all are invited to stay for a sandwich lunch.  Free will offering. The  Mustard Seed rehearsal will begin just shortly after 12 to allow for time to eat.
A reminder also that the weekly bulletins are posted on our website.  You will find it listed under the worship tab.  
Also, if you are on facebook, don’t forget to visit Trinity United Church North Bay and click “like” for regular updates (and a few surprised from time to time).
See you Sunday!

Coldest Night Team Trinity Walk-a-thon.

At Trinity United Church we encounter many people who are hungry, homeless or hurting.  Each of those people has a story to tell – sometimes a story of their struggles with addiction, or mental health issues, sometimes a string of bad luck, or a need to start over, or a story of just being alone. We are fortunate to have Food Banks in our city, including one at Trinity that helps to feed hungry people.  We are also very lucky to have the gathering place, North Bay’s community soup kitchen.  Each week day, caring teams of people work together to make a hot meal for anyone who needs it – but they also offer a place where people can gather as a community.  
I am proud to be walking as part of the Coldest Night of the Year winter walk-a-thon to raise money in support of the gathering place.  I would like to invite anyone interested in joining me and Team Trinity as we walk together in solidarity and commitment on February 22nd.  Some of us will be walking 2km, some 5 km and maybe a few of us will even walk 10km.  
If you are unable to join our team on February 22nd, a donation to our team would be gratefully accepted.  You can click on the link below it will connect you to my personal fundraising page.  On this page you can click “Donate Now” to donate money or you can click on “Join the Team” to walk with us.

Note: The Coldest Night of the Year is operated under the charitable oversight of Blue Sea Philanthropy, (BSP), a registered Canadian charity (public foundation, 819882655RR0001) in partnership with approved registered Canadian charities who serve the hungry, homeless and hurting in communities across Canada.

Emergency Warming Centre!

A new Warming Centre for cold weather emergencies has opened up in North Bay. Thanks to Dennis Chippa, member of the homelessness committee of the District of Nipissing Social Services Administration Board,  St. John’s Church on Main street will be available as an emergency warming station when there is a cold weather emergency in our city.  When the weather dips below -30 degrees the shelter will be available to anyone who needs a warm bed and a hot beverage.
