Welcome to Trinity!
Worship with us
Every Sunday at 11 AM in English or at 9:30 AM in German.
It means new beginnings are possible. It means there is unexpected hope even in the most hopeless situations: sickness, addiction, too much or too little work, debt, bullying, failed love, loneliness, depression . . . even death is not final: When we die, we go where Jesus has gone before us. And like him, we will not stay there, we will live again. Like he promised: “Because I live, you also will live.” (John 14:19)
We can go through life without fear; we are going to be okay. We can dare to start over, to love, to give, to reach out, to stand up for justice and truth . . . without worrying about ourselves. We know that following Jesus will lead to life, and more life. It will not be a charmed life safe from pain and suffering, but it will be real and fulfilled and fulfilling.
In this sense, we wish you a very happy Easter!
We are sponsoring Syrian refugees
In Syria, over 250,000 people have been killed, 12,000 of them children, millions are in refugee camps without access to healthcare, education, or proper sanitation. What can anyone do in the face of such suffering? Mother Teresa said:
“I never look at the masses as my responsibility…I can love only one person at a time…feed one person at a time. Just one, one, one…”
At Trinity Lutheran Church we want to help and so will start by sponsoring one Syrian refugee family to come to Canada. We will be responsible for providing half the funds necessary to support them for one year (the other half will be provided by government funding). In addition, we will help them find a home, provide furnishings, clothing and other basic material needs and identify resources to support them as they settle into this community (i.e., family doctor, school, English lessons). We look forward to the opportunity to generously love our brothers and sisters from across the globe and invite anyone else that feels called to help as well. Donations can be made to “Trinity Lutheran Church Refugee Sponsorship Fund” and 100% of the money will be used to help resettle this family. Gift cards are also available if you would like to make a donation in the name of someone else as a gift.
For more information please contact the church office.
Wednesday mid-day prayers for peace
Join us in Trinity’s sanctuary Wednesdays over noon to pray for peace for our churches, neighbourhoods, world, the earth and whomever else you feel called to pray peace for. The prayer time begins at 12:15 PM sharp and ends at 12:45 PM sharp, but you are welcome to arrive early and spend some quiet time by yourself.
