Convention Sermon on Wickedness and the need for Agape Love

Lutheran Church-Canada President Robert Bugbee presented the same sermon at three District conventions across Canada, including the Alberta-British Columbia District Convention which took place in May 2012.  He spoke of how the world usually says and does things that are not what God desires, and how this world, and the church, needs more agape love.  He challenges all of us to give more "agape love", just as Jesus did.  Click here to watch and listen to a video of his 20 minute sermon (as presented at the Convention for the East District of Lutheran Church-Canada).

Calling All Quilters!

Do you know what two pieces of material, some fiber fill and a lot of "chatter" can produce? A BEAUTIFUL QUILT! The Ladies of Trinity make many beautiful quilts, have a lot of fun making them, and get much satisfaction giving them to needy persons... whether their need is for a quilt to keep warm or a need to know someone cares. Quilts are distributed in downtown Vancouver, Wagner Hills Farms, BC Children's Hospital and Richmond General Hospital. Have some fun and join our group! All ladies are welcome!!! For Fall 2011, we meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 9:30am. See you there!

20110820-Africa-Famine-MotherChild-loresMany thanks to all those who came to the fundraising breakfast on Sunday, September 4 or who donated in the offering plate.  The total amount raised was $1043.

Thank you for your support during this time of need and helping bless those who are suffering in the Horn of Africa with Christ's love.

Congratulations, Vicar!

We were surprised during the morning worship service on July 24, that the ceremony for Vicar to receive his diploma and degree to mark the successful completion of his four years of study to become a pastor, took place at the church. Due to costs of the Vicar's family travelling to St Catherines, Ontario, to be part of a ceremony there, a representative of the Board of Regents, Rev Dr Wlliam Mundt, came to Richmond to perform the ceremony. Congratulations, Vicar Zhang! On August 28th, Vicar will be ordained and installed at Trinity. Please join us at 3:00pm.

2011 Church Picnic

Piping of "Happy Birthday"July 3, 2011 – After the bilingual Joint Worship Service and Annual Congregational Photo, this year's church picnic was held on the church grounds under beautiful, sunny skies.

We enjoyed each other's company amongst a potluck of salads and barbecued wieners while listening to the piping of "Happy Birthday" in celebration of the Vicar's special day.
