AFFIRMING EDUCATION TEAM
On May 1st, 2022 Trinity United Church Bobcaygeon voted 100% in favour of our new Affirming Mission Statement
TRINITY UNITED CHURCH – BOBCAYGEON
GROWING, CARING, SHARING
As followers of Jesus Christ, we seek to:
• spread God’s liberating love and respect God’s creation, functioning as a caring faith community
• encourage everyone to participate in all aspects of the life and work of the community of faith
• further our spiritual growth through worship, study of the scriptures and deepening relationships
As an affirming congregation, we celebrate God’s love:
• as expressed through diversity in ability, age, appearance, beliefs, capacity, ethnicity, family configuration, gender identity, personality, racial identity, sexual orientation, social status
We commit to God’s vision of wholeness for all creation.
Come, share this journey.
A celebration will follow shortly.
Contrary to the notice in the newsletter regarding the start of the healing ministry this month, with the 6th wave of Covid upon us, Beth and I have decided to wait until further on in the Spring when it will be safer to begin our Reiki practice. We are sorry to have to make this decision, but find it necessary at this time. Thank you for your understanding. Carol Wells-Gordon & Beth Halliday
