Be sure to attend, as this second meeting will be a time for the Development Steering Team to hear your responses to their presentation in January.
Tuesdays @ 2211:
is again meeting in person on (you guessed it) Tuesdays at 6:00 pm
, in the Church library/narthex. The first meeting will be March 7
and will be a Bring Your Own Dinner event.
We will discuss the same book that our Prayer/Study Group is currently studying, "Building God's Beloved Community - Discipleship in the United Church of Canada". For more information contact: Irene MacIver. If you need a copy of the book, let Zoë in the office know (email@example.com) asap, cut off for orders is Tuesday, March 7.
Doers Meeting: Monday, March 13 @ 6:30 pm in the Church Hall. Green is the lucky colour! Discipleship is seeing how our lives are a sacred calling and, out of our faith, connecting our gifts with the world’s needs. Come together at Trinity to be a part of the “Doing” and hear what each other is doing and wants to do. We will hear reports from Worship + Music, Governance, United Church Women, leaving time for Property, Christian Education, and Outreach interest groups to meet as well. Hope to see you - Joy Galea, Syd Sawyer, and Irene MacIver.

Truth and Reconciliation News:
Upon hearing the preliminary research findings on deaths and unmarked graves at the Alberni residential institution, The Rt. Rev.

The United Church of Canada continues our commitment to live into our Apologies, to be accountable, and to further the work of truth and reconciliation in concrete acts of justice and reparation.” CLICK HERE
