A Note from the Minister’s Desk: From Monday, June 25 through Sunday, July 8, I’ll be away for 2 weeks of Study Leave – beginning with some concentrated reading and planning, and then retreating to Five Oaks for a continuing education opportunity, with Year 1 in the School of Celtic Consciousness. In the event of a pastoral emergency during this time, please contact The Rev. Anita Spiller of Vineland UC and Jordan Station UC, at 905.599.0477. May you never have need of the above, but know that you are held in good care, as needs arise. I’ll return on Monday, July 9, ready to begin our summer series and all the refreshment of these beautiful months. See you soon! Heather
Next Sunday, July 1, please plan to welcome Beth Dohn as our worship leader and preacher. Beth is one of Trinity’s newest members, but she carries decades of leadership in ministry, including her designation as a Licensed Lay Worship Leader. Along with Jim, Beth is a treasured part of this church family, and we are grateful already to have her leadership and care.

Spring Catering Help—there will be a sign up sheet for volunteers to help with all of the Spring Catering events. Please check the Bulletin Board and volunteer for any event you are available to help at.
Communion sets needed – As the list grows of congregants who wish to take Communion at the same time as it is served in church, we are in need of complete Communion Sets to be used for the Extended Table program. If you have one that you no longer use or would like to donate a new one in dedication of a loved one, please contact Jackie Jones 289-567-0814 or Rev. Heather.
You are invited to a World Refugee Day Celebration on Wednesday June 20th, 12 – 2 pm, located at the Hamilton Central Library, 55 York Blvd., on the 4th floor. You can drop by anytime between 12 – 2 pm.
Our Garage Sale in May was a wonderful success! The Finance Committee would like to thank you for your support. We raised $ 953.50 for Trinity.
Summer Office Hours– In July and August, the office will be closed Mondays. It will be open Tues-Fri from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Observer subscribers – just 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
Gerry and Nancy McCall sent a note of thanks—Thank you for your comments and expressions in regards to my ministry at Trinity over the past number of years. Thank you for the great cake and thanks as well to those who worked in the kitchen keeping the refreshments going and to those who cleaned up afterwards. Thank you for the many gifts, the prayer shawls and the prayer patch. I will soon use the gift to Curries, my favourite art supplies store. I am not sure what I’ll get yet – but then that’s part of the fun of a gift card. We appreciate the Anthurium plant.
