HUGE THANK-YOU!

The recent Chili Luncheon was an Amazing Success👏🏻!  A Great Time of Fellowship & Yummy Food was enjoyed by 68 people.  The Smiles, Laughter & Positive Comments coming from Trinity Hall were very Heartwarming💖! A Huge Thank You to the many people who helped out with Set-up, Food Preparation & Clean-up.  The support and assistance, so willingly given from our congregation, is very much appreciated.  A Big Thank You for your Generous Donations which enables us to add over $500.00 to our Washroom Accessibility Fund.  Also, Chili & Desserts were delivered to folks who were unable to attend the luncheon.  They were very touched by our thoughtfulness and really appreciated the food. Stay Tuned for More Fun Events!

Praying for Others during Lent

The season of Lent is a journey of prayer with Jesus to Good Friday and beyond.  The Bible asks us to pray for one another.  On February 18, you were invited to join in praying for others in our church family throughout Lent.  Don’t let it scare you – the prayer can be as simple as, “God, I pray my church family will know your love.”  It is not too late and you can still participate!  Envelopes, containing names for prayer, have been placed on the table in the Narthex.  Please take one and you are welcome to join the journey!
