Prayers for Peace

Prayers for Peace have resumed and will continue every Wednesday to November 15, from 12:15 to 12:45 PM. The event takes place in the Sanctuary. Both personal prayers and prayers for the world are spoken. However, you do not need to verbalize a prayer, your presence in the group is a prayer in itself. And the Prayers do HELP, this is why we are continuing practice. Peace be with you. For more information, please contact church office.

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.
