Splash Canyon VBS

Get ready to be soaked at Splash Canyon VBS! Life is full of thrills and spills!

At Splash Canyon, children will learn the good news that God is with us and keeps His promises to us on life’s wild ride! We will look into the Bible and hear the stories of Moses in the Nile River, Naaman’s healing in the Jordan River, Paul’s daring voyage on the Sea and Jesus’ baptism, learning how God keeps promises, is faithful and how Jesus gives us life and hope everyday… always!

Splash Canyon VBS starts July 16 to 19th from 9:00 to 11:30 for ages 5 to 12! If you know of any child who would be interested, please have them contact the church at 519-448-1851.

Parish Finances

As you are aware, one of the goals we set for ourselves when we passed our 2018 Mission and Ministry Plan at Vestry in February, we committed to provide quarterly financial updates. As part of that commitment, here are the April – June 2018 figures:
Budget: 22,000.00
Actual: 23,095.07
Great job family!

As we come into a typically low giving season please remember your church as you plan your holidays.
Pre-authorized giving forms are always available to make it easier to share your givings with the church even while you’re away.See a warden to obtain one.

News from Holy Trinity

News from Holy Trinity

For the past 6 weeks, Holy Trinity has joined with the United Church to do an outreach project for the Wish Closet at Major Ballachey School in Brantford.  Each week, there has been an emphasis on a particular item that is really needed there. Some of the things that have been brought in are household items, small appliances, clothing, bedding, underwear, linens, books and toys. The Youth Group at Holy Trinity cut out fabric to make 19 fleece hats for children. They were then sewn together by members of the parish and also taken to the Wish Closet.  While delivering the items, we were told that everything would put to good use, especially for the flood victims in Brantford!

On Ash Wednesday, the United Church joined us for a combined service where Pastor Chris did the sermon and the following Sunday, we joined them at their church where Rev. Sharla did the sermon.  It is important for us to remember that we are all united as we try to follow Christ.

Holy Trinity has sponsored the second Paint Nite in St. George to help raise money for the youth to go to Thunder Bay this summer with the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY).  The Legion generously donated the use of their building. A fun time was had by all and some interesting, colourful paintings have emerged.

The church is also very grateful to the Legion for allowing them to use their building and barbecue to host the Community Barbecue and Silent Auction on Saturday, March 24th from 5:00 to 7:00. Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hotdogs, sausages and dessert will be served.  Bring your appetites and come and see the great baskets in the Silent auction!

Each week during Lent, a Bible study has taken place, as we compared and contrasted the passion narratives in the Bible.  Looking at the background of the Biblical times and who the author was  speaking to, gives us a clearer understanding of why one Gospel story emphasizes an event and another either leaves it out or gives only a brief mention.

A Book Study meets every Thursday morning and reads and discusses a different book. During the past weeks, discussion has been on “The Divine Dance” by Richard Rohr.

Easter is almost upon us as we celebrate this very important event for Christians. All are welcome to join us!

Easter Week Services:

Evening prayer: March 25-28: 7:00 pm.

Maundy Thursday worship:     7:00 pm.

Good Friday service:               10:00 am.

Easter Sunday service:            10:00 am.

Lenten Letter

“While our prayer lives are to be a regular and faithful time with our  Lord, it is during this season that we take extra time to focus our  prayer life, becoming more aware of God’s presence in our everyday,  searching and striving to aline ourselves with God’s mission in our  world.”
