THANK YOU: On behalf of the congregation, we would like to thank the staff of Trinity United for going “above and beyond” during this time of transition.  This was especially evident during Holy Week with the amount of time devoted to excellence—from the “out front” worship services with Bob, Louise and Gwyn, to the “behind the scenes” work of Wendy and Troy, as well as the visitation ministry by Rev. Cathy Pharo, we want to say that we appreciate all of you.

There are many volunteers who have been diligent in the work of the church.  This is critical in keeping momentum and moving things forward in a positive, progressive way.  We want to say that your involvement, time, and talent does not go unnoticed—thank you.

The Ministry and Personnel Committee at Trinity acts under the guidelines of The Manual of The United Church of Canada.  Your Committee functions around three roles:  consultative and supportive, healthy relationships, and supervisory.  Presently serving on the Committee:  Paul Campbell, Chair; Louis Andrews, Mary-Jo Dalton, and Carolyn McKillop.  All at Trinity who have praise for or concern about staff, may share in signed correspondence and in a confidential manner with any of the above Committee members.  

We are thankful for the work of all in our community of faith here at Trinity. 

Paul Campbell, Chair

Ministry and Personnel Committee
