SUNDAY IS DONATION SUNDAY! The second Sunday of each month is our opportunity to help stock the shelves at Community Care (West Niagara) Thank you for all you do to make Trinity’s Outreach Ministry reach as many people as possible.
In addition to our morning service, Trinity, Beamsville is honoured to participate in ‘Bells of Peace’, a national commemoration initiated by the Royal Canadian Legion. To mark the centennial of the First World War Armistice, bells will echo across Canada, beginning at sunset on November 11. For our remembrance, we will gather at the bell tower entry (single, north door, facing William Street) by 4:45pm this Sunday, with pealing to commence at sunset (just before 5pm). Weather permitting, we will remain outside for the 100 times it peals, to hear it fullest. For more information, please contact the church office, see the poster available at the church office, or go to legion.ca/bells of peace. “At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”
On Saturday evening , Nov. 24 at 7:00 p.m. we will transport you back in time with special lighting, fog, sound effects and screened images to Ebenezer Scrooge’s counting house on a cold, foggy Christmas eve. Charles Dickens was a social activist. The imprisonment of his father in the Marshalsea, a debtor’s prison in London forced Charles into child labour in a blacking factory and was the driving force behind his commitment to document injustice and poverty in Victorian England. You are in for a remarkable performance! Tickets are $20 each and are available at the Office. Proceeds are going to Bridge of Hope and Partera Peacebuilders International.
Pick-Up-The-Tab is back. Help make the currency flow through a cycle of blessing by choosing a tab from the board in Jory Hall. Put the tab along with its value in an envelope and place it in the collection plate.
Trinity Calendars will be available to purchase midNovember! Watch for them in Jory Hall after service on Sundays or see Tania in the office during the week. 100% Trinity for 2019!
Trinity is creating a Legacy Quilt to celebrate past and present members of our Church Family. Names can be included in this project for $20 each. Names can be clustered in a Family block. For more information, please contact Marilyn Snedden or Joann Baughman.
Joy is… entirely up to you! What makes you feel joyful? We would appreciate it if you would share it with us. We are compiling information and stories for this year’s Christmas Concert. Pick up and drop off your Joy! Slips on the table by the name tags just outside the sanctuary door. Any questions or concerns please contact Irene Romagnoli, Elizabeth Salari, Armand Romagnoli, Andrew Poaps.
Once again, Aidan Thombs is collecting Canadian Tire money. All donations help Aidan purchase Christmas presents for the children of West Niagara who may not otherwise have a gift under the tree. Aidan will be collecting all through the month of November, with a final tally at a lunch December 2 in Jory Hall. The Canadian Tire money box is n the desk in the Narthex
Exploring the Song of Faith: A Place in the Tent is a four week intentional reading of the Song of Faith, discussing with one another how our United Church faith statement reflects (or does not reflect) our own beliefs. It is a celebration that we all have in this church’s “tent,” and of the many ways that God is at work in our community. This Adult Study Group begins November 19. Speak with Scott for more information or to register, and note whether you would like a physical or electronic copy of the Song of Faith.
