TRINITY KICK OFF 2015!
Please join us on Sunday, September 13th as we kick off another year of exciting ministry here at Trinity!

Don’t miss out on the chance to invite your neighbours and friends (invite coming next Sunday to the worship folder) and join us in a great afternoon with your community!

 

DROP YOUR GONCH!!
The Bissell Centre is taking a collection
of new underwear and socks!
Underwear is essential for health and hygiene, as well as comfort and
dignity, which are crucial when transitioning out of homelessness. Unfortunately, underwear is one of the most requested items by our community, but one of the least donated. If you can, pick some up next time you are out shopping and bring them to the info desk. We will be collecting until the end of September!

 

KICK OFF EVENT!!
Friday, September 11th @7pm
I know one thing for certain:
We WILL play a giant game of
Hungry-Hungry-Hippo, AKA TRIPLE-H
Small Groups Beginning September 8th
What: A time set aside for the youth to get together to grow deeper
relationships with each other and with God primarily through Bible study and prayer. This is the staple of discipleship training that we do at Trinity Youth, and we hope to multiply disciples much like Jesus does, with intention and love.

Where and When: All groups will meet at Trinity Baptist at 7:00. We will start with big group teaching in the Fireside Room for half an hour before splitting up into smaller groups around the church.

Trinity Youth
Want to hang out? Kev does. There are two months of summer fun waiting to happen. Come to the church and play some Wii, 3DS, or go out to 7-11
and get a slurpee. Whatever you want to do, just call  Kev at the church and make it happen.
Honestly though, with no youth events, Kev will slowly but surely wither away into nothing. What he needs to stay alive is… fun and fellowship. And you are the only way to make that happen this summer. So do us all a favour, and hang out with him. Also, the other staff at Trinity are getting sick of him
being around ALL THE TIME, so for their sakes, hang out with Kev.  OK?

 

Trinity Kids

Today is a family service. All children are welcome to sit upstairs with their families. There are activity boxes for ages 4 to grade 6.
The nursery and toddler rooms are open for ages 0-3.

Next Week is a family service as well.

Trinity Youth
Hello, fledgling Trinitarians. I, the associate pastor in youth ministry, Kevin Haugan, am going to Mexico on behalf of our church body, along with many other ambassadors, including those who belong to the age demographic “youth”. I beseech thee if you yourself are a youth to join others in the ancient practice of prayer, asking our heavenly Father to grant us safe passage and to help us complete the tasks we are setting out to accomplish. If you can ally yourself to our cause in this way, we would be very grateful. Your prayers will give us strength and fortitude on our quest and journey.Thank you for your support. Sincerely, the Mexico Mission Team. (For maximum effect, must be read in a medieval tones and on your tippy toes)
