Hello Trinity Friends,
This Sunday is the Fourth Sunday in Lent and the Sunday that we give a tip of the hat to St. Patrick’s Day! Join us for worship, online here Trinity’s YouTube Channel This week we have special music from the McCallum family as well as Jennifer Hedican.
A reminder that this Saturday night we spring forward an hour! Set your clocks ahead before you go to bed on Saturday night or you may be late for church! Fortunately for those who are “late” the worship service is available to watch anytime after 10:30 am on Sunday!
The sympathy and prayers of the congregation go out to Karen Ronald on the death of her husband Peter this past week. You can find his obituary here Obituary for Peter
Last Sunday, we held our Annual Congregational Meeting virtually through zoom. Thanks to all those who made it a smooth and well organized meeting. Thank you to Bob Cook, our (now) Past Chair, for leading us through a particular challenging year! Welcome and congratulations go out to our new Board Chair, Cindy Brownlee!
A reminder that we are looking for a few submissions from our church family for some upcoming worship services. We would welcome and encourage participation via submitted video clips for either or all of the items below. For more information email Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org
