Trinity this week – Pentecost Sunday – May 23, 2021

Hello Trinity Friends,
Our Covid Risk Team is continuing to look at the guidelines for the 3 stage re-opening that the province announced yesterday.  We will update you on any decisions that our team makes sometime next week.  In the meantime, our services continue to be available on Trinity’s YouTube Channel right here and Cogeco’s YourTV Channel 12 (700 HD).  The worship services run a week behind.  They are aired at 8 am and 3 pm.  
This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday!  Join us at 10:30 on YouTube.  Feel free to wear your best Pentecost colours when you tune in.   
Would you like to dedicate a service in celebration of a special event (such as a graduation, wedding anniversary, birthday) or in memory of a loved one?  For a donation of $25 (or more).  We will include your dedication in our worship services – you can submit a photo and any brief comment you want to include.  Please get in touch with Wanda at the church office to dedicate a service. 

A reminder that the deadline to sign up for Rev. Ted’s Secret Book club is May 23rd!  Please be in touch with Lisa to book your space and reserve a book. (Send an email or call the church office)  Donations (suggested $100) should be directed to the Church Office by cheque, cash or etransfer.  Learn to love your imperfect life with one of Rev. Ted’s favourite books. Which book? You’ll never know unless you join our secret book club, summer 2021! The book is short (just over 100 pages!)  New for 2021 – Rev. Ted is developing a book club guide, to enrich your reading experience. He also plans on hosting a more interactive book club party in July. (In person if the rules allow!)

The Toilet Paper North Bay drive is on.  This is the 8th annual campaign to collect toilet paper for the Food Bank programs in North Bay.  Our food shelf has been the recipient of cases of tp in the past.  This year, Ellen Faulkner (the organizer of the TP drive) has suggested that we could ask our Church family to donate directly to Trinity’s Food Bank.  If possible, when you are shopping, please put an extra package in your cart.  You can contact the church office to arrange a time to drop them off to Trinity or for someone to pick up.  Thanks for your support!
