Trinity Weekly Update – Lent Three

Hello Trinity Friends,

This Sunday is the third Sunday in Lent.  We continue our theme of life’s journeys through scripture and music.  Our guest musicians are Helen Whitehead and Fran Hanover.   Following the worship service please join us in friendship for lunch and plan to stay for the Annual Congregational Meeting.  All are highly encouraged to stay! The Annual Congregational Meeting is the requirement of the United Church Manual. 
Lenten Envelopes will be distributed today and each Sunday up to Palm Sunday. The Lenten Offering will go towards the Food Shelf – which includes the Monday Morning Food Shelf, the Monday breakfast at the Gathering Place and the Wednesday afternoon Infant Food Shelf.  Thank-you for supporting these important and needed ministries!
IMNA Survey
Please take a moment to complete this online survey.  Your participation will help us to get a snapshot of our church and will help to shape the future of our church. The survey is confidential and secure.  Everyone 13 and up, who are part of the worship and life of our congregation is encouraged to participate – please ask youth to participate if they are able as well!
