Trinity Weekly Update – August 19, 2016

Hello Trinity friends!

Having just completed another successful week of Vacation Bible Camp, I imagine that things will be a little quieter around Trinity.  We are grateful for the many, many people who volunteered their time to ensure it was a success once again.  Thanks to Jean Mitchell and all the kitchen helpers, all 54 campers and the many youth volunteers and leaders were well fed!  Thanks especially to my VBC co-creators Marcel MacDonald and Melissa Peddie, to Carrie Graham, Caitie Blumson and Hannah McCallum for their leadership and support, to Ryan Rozicki cleaning up after us and lending a hand whenever we needed it and to Rev. Ted, for being such a good sport as always.We also wish to acknowledge the Heritage Railway and Carousel for accommodating our very large and enthusiastic group! Last but not least, heartfelt thanks to you, the Trinity family, for supporting this amazing outreach year after year! We are looking forward to doing this all again in about a year’s time.
A reminder that this Sunday August 21st at 10:30 am, we are holding a special service commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Apology.  Please plan to attend this very special occasion.
For those of you who wish to submit newsletter items – please be sure to send them in to Trinity’s office The newsletter will be assembled and distributed before Rally Back Sunday.
