Stewardship Moment:

Sharing our Blessings as a Christian Community

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

Like the man scattering seed on the ground,
we trust that the gifts we share
will be used for the best purpose,
even if we don’t immediately see the results.

 

We are in the process of becoming Affirming!

We are OPEN to ALL! 

Trinity Treasures

Trinity United Church Council thanks Karen and Osa for the amazing job they do running the store.  We particularly appreciate the detailed reports Karen supplies to the council each month and want to note that she is careful to have the council approve any future plans for improvements.  Although Karen and Osa, along with Teresa, have become the public face of Trinity United, the council is always the ultimate decision maker, and any disagreements or unhappiness should be directed to one of the elected council members.

 

You all know how successful our Thrift Store is, but did you know they also do a lot for the community in other ways?

Note from Karen:  Betty and I are speechless. While I love getting the two silvers, I am most honoured by the bronze for Best Charity Org. I really feel the community sees how our church helps, and I have a lump in my throat. Next year we get gold!          ~ Karen.
