Weekly Update

For the Month of April

Niagara On-Line Worship, a ministry of the Presbytery of Niagara of the United Church of Canada, will be filming and broadcasting our worship services. This will be just like a television broadcast, except it’s on-line. Worshippers’ faces will not appear on camera. The congregation will be filmed from behind. Children will not be focused on and will only be shown from a distance so they cannot be individually identified. Blackout seating areas will be made available which will not appear on camera at all.

Dates to Remember…

Fashion Show and Sale- Saturday 28th April We have a wonderful selection of “like new” clothes and accessories for every occasion, size and age group. The models have been fitted, the theme chosen and tea pots are at the ready. Last year was a huge success and we feel this year will be as just as much fun. Tickets will be available at coffee time today and through the office. 

Are you afraid of the dark? All youth (Grade 4 and up) are invited to explore the church after hours, where we will play our favourite games in the dark. Come out to Trinity on Saturday April 28th from 6:30-8PM. The larger the group, the better – so invite your friends! 

“Adopt-a-Road” cleanup 9am-11am Saturday, May 12th. Please meet at Kinsman and Mountain Rds. Must be 16 years of age. For further information, please call Marie at 563-8542. 

Spring Cleanup at Cave Springs Camp, Saturday, April 28, 9:00 till noon. All are invited and there is lots of work to go around. Windows, Cabin Cleanup, Dishes, Brush Clearing, Gravel for Paths.

Mark your calendar and prepare for joyful thanks: during our Sunday worship, May 6, we will celebrate the legacy and honour the recent disbanding of Trinity’s United Church Women. In the spirit of the day, hats are most welcome! The celebration will continue afterward in Jory Hall, with cake of course. 

Faith News…

Welcoming New Members by Transfer Have you been thinking about officially transferring your congregational membership to Trinity, Beamsville? We would love that and are planning a service for June 10, 2018. To learn more or confirm your plans, please contact Rev. Heather by May 27. You can also mark your calendar for a soon-to-be New Members meet and greet, Tuesday June 5 at 7pm in the Common Room. *N.B. If you are not already a member of another congregation, of any denomination, and would like to join by Profession of Faith or Adult Baptism, please speak to Heather about that, too. It’s a different kind of celebration, but very welcomed!

Trinity United Church is holding its first ever “Guess Who’s Coming to Lunch” event on April 22, 2018 at 12:30pm. As part of our “Currency of Relationship”, this event is designed for our membership to become better acquainted. Sign up sheets are available on the Sign Up Board. You may choose to be a Host or a Guest or either. The Hosts will be chosen and notified of the number attending their Lunch (not to exceed 6). The names and assignments of the guests will be kept confidential until the day before the Lunch. The coordinators will email or call the guests and let them know the address of Lunch. The Host will provide the main course and beverages; the guests will be assigned the dessert. The tighter the secret the more fun. Let the fun begin!

Communion is now being offered to congregants in their homes who are not able to attend church due to age or extended illness. The Extended Table has teams of two go out at the same time as it is served in the sanctuary. A short service will be shared with the congregant and the teams will return in time for fellowship after the service. We are in need of volunteers to grow our teams. We will provide support and information you need to be comfortable in serving communion. If you would like to know more, please contact Rev. Heather or Jackie Jones 289-567-0814

Wednesday at 1 Looking for some midweek community? Wednesday @ 1 is a group that gathers for 90 minutes or so, in the Common Room. The only set plan is to grow deeper in faith together, but there is always good company, faith-filled conversation, and the kettle and coffee maker as required. All are welcome. No advance reading required, but if you’d like to look ahead, the discussion on the April 18 gathering will be John 10: 11-18. Preferred Bible translation is the one you prefer.

Observer subscribersjust a thought…  when you renew your subscription-just $25 paid to Trinity United Church, clearly marked on the envelope “Observer Subscription”and give to Tania or put on the collection plate, how about buying a gift subscription for another Trinity family? I can tell you if your choice is already a subscriber. What a nice gesture. New subscribers always welcome. Ask Bob Anderson for more information

Reach Out…

Fashion Show Clothes Donations   We will be collecting women’s VERY GENTLY used clothing, jewelry and purses at the church from Tuesday 3rd through Friday 20th April, during office hours, and on Sunday 8th before the service. We are in urgent need of clothes racks, mirrors and pant hangers, which will be returned to you after the show. Please look in your closets for anything you are not wearing and in excellent condition for sale, along with asking your friends. Tickets will be for sale soon but are limited this year to 100.
