Trinity and Providence New Church Directory
We are creating a new church directory. Pictures will be taken on Monday, October 30th and Tuesday, October 31st. The previous church directory was completed in 2014. Following the church service this Sunday, we will be booking portrait appointments for our church directory. A table will be set-up in the Narthex. Please book an appointment as the directory for Trinity & Providence is very important in our church life. If you're not able to be at church you may contact Cathy Bennett @ (705)738-4080 to book a time to have your picture taken.
Did you know …
that both nursing homes (Case Manor & Pinecrest) are much more accessible these days! You no longer need to set-up appointments, but will need to wear a mask while inside. I’m sure the residence would enjoy a visit! Since it is flue season, please call first to make sure they are not on lockdown.
