U.C.W. Meat Pie Sales update

Our meat pie sale last Sunday went fantastically well. We sold over 500 pies and all the chili sauce. I still have about 65 frozen beef pies in the freezer if anyone is interested. The chicken pies all sold. Sorry. Just call me at 705 738-9984 and we can make arrangements for pick-up and payment of the beef pies.

At this time, I would like to thank all the ladies who helped make this pie making event and sale such a huge success. Without all the help, I could not do this. A huge round of applause to everyone!!!!!

Just to let you know, the group plans on making pies again in January, February & March of 2022. Sorry to say though, due to the higher costs for everything, the price is going to be $6.00 per pie in the New Year. I hope you understand.

Sincerely, Olive Macoomb, UCW

NEW: News from Trinity's Reopening Committee

We sincerely thank the members of our congregation for following the protocols that have been put in place so that we can successfully have Sunday Church Services again. We also thank the many volunteers who have helped with screening, recording contact information, ushering and running the technology equipment. The sense of teamwork is so appreciated!

An update from the Reopening Committee from the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit:

1.) If the paper being handed out at a church service is a single use item and will be taken away at the end of the service, that is allowed. (We would not want “Order of Service” bulletins left in the sanctuary for someone else to have to pick up.)

2.) Only a service can be held in the sanctuary with over 25 people in attendance, with masks worn and social distancing maintained. If a meeting was to be held in the sanctuary, it cannot exceed 25 people.

News from the Knitting Group

The Knitting Group has returned to Trinity! New members are welcome as projects are created for shut-ins and various people in need. The Knitting Group will meet every second Tuesday and the dates will be posted under “Special Activities This Week at Trinity”. Covid Protocols must be followed (signing the contact sheet upon entry, hand sanitizing, wearing masks and maintaining proper social distance). For further information about the Knitting Group, contact Gail Lewis at 705-738-1279. Next meeting December 14th @ 2 p.m.

Dear Friends,

The healing Ministry is being organized to resume on Wednesday, November 3rd and will be open every Wednesday for 6 weeks. We just have two practitioners at the moment, Beth Halliday and myself, and we will need to take extra time between clients to disinfect our tables, etc. Therefore, we have spots for only 6 clients each week. We will book appointments for you to attend every other Wednesday. That way, we can accommodate more people in a 2-week period.

We are only able to accept registration for those who have been fully vaccinated and we will need to see proof of that at your first appointment. This is for our safety and for that of the clients.

Please call Carol Wells-Gordon at 705-731-0455 to book an appointment. Beth and I are very excited to be able to offer Reiki once again. We look forward to seeing you soon.


With the new year coming shortly, I’ll be preparing the 2022 envelope boxes which will be ready for pick up soon. I wanted to inquire whether you still would like to receive the offering boxes as usual.

Some have decided to continue with their offerings via e-transfer, some have decided to continue using their regular envelopes and some still are preparing monthly cheques. (PAR is always the preferred option.)

If you usually donate using offering envelopes and you would NOT like to receive a box of envelopes for 2022, please let me know, so that you may donate to the church using the method best suited to you.

Only those who would like to change their status, please contact me at:

Procedure For E-Transfer:

1. Senders must sign-in to their bank account.

2. Click on the e-transfer icon.

3. The recipient is Trinity United Church.

4. The email address is:

5. Enter the total amount of the donation.

6. In the memo field, enter the specific designations of the

donation. E.g., For a $100 donation, general $70, M&S

$10, property $10, world development $5.

7. For the security question, use “church name”.

(do not enter quotation marks)

8. Answer “Trinity”. (Do not enter quotation marks but use

capital T)

9. Send.
