MISSION MOMENT: Health and Hope in Afghanistan
Razia always wanted to be a mother. But the young woman had struggled for years to conceive and feared something was wrong. In the remote village in Afghanistan where she lives, the closest health centre was a distance away; therefore medical check-ups and tests seemed a nuisance and the cost to travel an unnecessary expense. With the establishment of a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported health centre in a nearby village, Razia was able to meet with medical professionals who addressed her health concerns and helped her receive proper treatment so she could get pregnant. Today, with improved access to necessary health services, Razia’s well-being has improved and her hope is restored. PWS&D helps new mothers have healthy futures

Green and Blue Bins and Waste Diversion: The Property Management Ministry has been placing Blue, Green and Garbage Bins throughout the Church and putting up posters and labels about proper sorting of waste materials. Please take a few minutes to review which bin should be used when you are throwing out waste. This is important to all of us -- Not only is it environmentally friendly and a requirement of City bi-laws but proper sorting saves Trinity thousands of dollars each year, through a waiver of City waste fees for Charitable Organizations.

Weekly Weekday Church Office Volunteers make a huge positive impact on the life, work and witness of Trinity! The Church Administrator and Minister seek to ensure tasks and responsibilities are related to the interests and skills of all volunteers. The work on any given day is varied and captures the many aspects of daily church life. Days and times presently needing Church Office Volunteers: Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Please contact the Church Office if this is a ministry of interest to you!

PAR: Pre-Authorized Remittance: automatic debits from your bank account ensuring regular contributions to Trinity through-out the year. PAR inquiries gladly received by Beth Hemstad, our Envelope Secretary.
