TONY CAMPOLO AT TRINITY!
Next Sunday, Trinity Baptist will host Dr. Tony Campolo who will be coming under the banner of World Vision Canada. He will be bringing a message entitled Love Changes Everything: Living with Passion to Change the World. For decades Tony Campolo has traveled internationally and spoken up for social
justice issues, not least of which is the plight of vulnerable
children. Our congregation will be given the opportunity to sponsor children from Burundi as a response to Tony’s sermon. Burundi seems like a great fit because of our congregation’s
connection with The Long Miles Coffee Project & Good Coffee. Please spread the word about this upcoming event and prepare to consider sponsoring a child. For more information, contact
Pastor Jeff.

 

THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
To the many people that helped make our hosting of Watoto such a success! We could not have done this without you! Mark & Maria K, Randy & Stacey B, Jason & Shelley L, Lincoln & Vicki S, Ron & Bev M, and Derek & Alana G for being willing to host choir members in your homes, Ambra G, Dorothy H, and Lianne C for preparing dinner for them on Sunday and to the lovely Rick L for helping Jenn with set up and sound.
Awesomeness all around! Your efforts and time spent were most
definitely appreciated.

 

HELP US PLANT A CHURCH IN MEXICO
You can order gift cards for all your growing needs from Salisbury
Greenhouses and help us PLANT A CHURCH in San Quintin, Baja Mexico!
20% of your purchase will go toward construction costs and are available in denominations of  $25, $50, $100. Please see us in the foyer after the service. All Gift Cards will be ready for pick up on Sunday, May 15.
We are also offering aeration service and lawn clean up. We will have a team of people out ready to provide these services on April 30th.
To book your time, please contact Kev H or Mark P.
We will even clean up dog business from your yard for a significant
additional fee.

 

UPDATE FROM THE REFUGEE GROUP
Please be praying Amil, Rita, and Elias who are scheduled to arrive in Edmonton tomorrow. We would like you to consider being part of a
welcoming group at the airport.  This would be minimal contact; we don’t want to overwhelm them, but we would like them to know they are very welcome and loved – maybe with some signs, etc.  They have minimal English, and may not be comfortable shaking hands and so on, but they will love our smiles, I’m sure.
All those who pledged baby supplies (clothing, diapers, etc.), please get those to the church or to Iris P in the next couple weeks.  She can’t store everything else, so we ask that people hang on to the other items for now until we get the family settled in a home.  Baby clothes & diapers should be in the 3-6 months range and up.  Also, if people have any gently used boy clothes in size 6months and up, Barb Borkent has offered to take those and get them ready for Elias.
Still have questions? Please see Sarah Whyte or Gerald Clark.

 

Trinity YOUTH GROUP (Gr.7-12)
The Game of Life; Middle Class Edition

This time around, instead of doing a regular version or a third world edition, we will be doing a middle class edition! You read that right, ever wanted to live out the fantasy of being just financially stable?
