“Trinity United Church Congregation; We wanted to thankyou so much for your generous donation to the Food Bank! This will be a wonderful help to those in our community who are in need at this time. Sincerely, Board of Bobcaygeon Helps Food Bank.”
Prayer Request and Pastoral Care
If you have a prayer request, please call the church office at (705)738-5135 and we will pass your request through to our active Prayer Circle and Pastoral Care Teams.
A BIG THANK-YOU…
to all who knitted mittens, hats, and scarves for the “Mitten Tree”.
They went out to various community partners e.g. Dunsford, Bobcaygeon, & Curve lake schools, Ross memorial nursery, A Place Called Home, Women’s Resources, Boys & Girls Club.
When we celebrated Jesus' baptism, we used stones as symbols of things we need to let go of, and as signs of our commitment to walk with God. Lose yours? Gave it away? There are more on the table in the narthex. Please enjoy and share!
With thanks, Rev. Dr. Bob Root
