We will be following Covid protocols of social distancing and masks when singing. More information to follow.
A request from our UCW ladies!
UCW ladies would like to make chili sauce again on Sept. 1st and Sept. 7th, 2021 --- IF IT IS SAFE TO DO SO and hopefully by then, everybody will have had their 2nd vaccination. In anticipation of this, I am asking for donations of 500 ml Mason jars for this project. If you have any in your basement or garage that you can donate, please leave them outside the church and I will periodically pick them up.
Thanking you in advance, Olive Macoomb

VIBE IS A GO!!!
Save the dates:
We are thrilled to announce that we have hired two enthusiastic and very qualified leaders to offer a virtual camp program, based on the Colours of the Rainbow. We are offering 2 sessions of 8 days each but the beauty of the program is that with the exception of 4 short Zoom meetings, campers can enjoy the program at their own pace. There will be a private Facebook page and a Gmail link to access movies, craft demonstrations, songs and games.
We also have a camp in a bag kit for each registered camper. This will include our program; craft supplies and a few other helpful items. There is no cost to register for the camp. I am including the link for the registration, which can be done and submitted online.
Please share the link with everyone you know who has kids, especially those who have enjoyed the VIBE program in the past.
We are also looking for some volunteers to help in the Zoom rooms. Those youth (12 +) who qualified as junior leaders in the past would be eligible.
Once you submit your registration, more information will come up including the vibe email and contact numbers.
We really need your help to get the word out as we are working on a very short timeline. Thanks for all your help!
Sessions are Monday to Thursday for a 2-week session (see below).
- Session 1 Monday, July 19th to Thursday July 22nd and Monday July,
26th to Thursday, July 29th
- Session 2 Monday, August 9th to Thursday, August 12th and
Monday, August 16th to Thursday, August 19th.
An Update from the Reopening Committee
of Trinity United Church
Trinity’s Reopening Committee met on Wednesday, July 8th and will meet again on Wednesday, July 28th. Information from the Ontario Government and the United Church of Canada was reviewed with close attention paid to the Ontario “Roadmap to Reopen”.
· Trinity’s Reopening Committee remains committed to developing a comprehensive, detailed plan to ensure that members of our faith community are as safe as possible in our church facility.
· A reopening target date of Sunday, October 3, 2021 for church services has been chosen. We plan to hold our own, early “Thanksgiving Celebration”.
· It is important to move forward with regular Sunday services and maintain the recorded services to reach as many people of our congregation and community as possible.
· Regular church services will be held on Sunday mornings; will also be livestreamed; and will later be available on YouTube. Trinity is certainly moving forward into the future.
· As part of the reopening for Sunday services, much help is needed for the following Reopening Sub Committees: Sanctuary Set Up, Cleaning, Ushering, Covid Screening, Coordination of Attendees, and the Technology Team.We need the help of many Trinity volunteers to implement a safe reopening plan.
· At our next Reopening Committee meeting, we also plan to discuss the reopening of the Trinity Church facility for: Committee Meetings, Church Events and Community Groups.
· Members of Trinity’s Church Reopening Committee are Rev. Andrew Macpherson, Carol Wells-Gordon, Susan & Armand Hachey, Jim Telford, Dave and Audrey Mackay, Cathy Bennett, Dorothy McTaggart, John Knox, Marion Mackenzie and Connie Picken. Susan Zilke Ward and Kevin Shields also provide support and assistance.
Planning for our safe church reopening is a very serious undertaking and much help will be needed by Trinity’s family to ensure success. Please contact one of our committee members if you have suggestions and/or are willing to assist.
