Midweek Musings – July 27

Midweek Musings – July 27


During the time of COVID ‘shutdowns’, we daily phoned people of TMUC to ask how they were doing and let them know we were thinking of them.

A recurrent question we heard during those calls was, “How are things with the church?”

As we return to weekly in-person worship and events, we continue to both phone and visit people and we continue to hear the question, “How are things with the church?”

This Midweek Musings email has been one means by which we tell people about ‘how things are with the church.’

“How things are’ often translates to ‘here’s what’s happening’ (or, as we might say on a Sunday morning, ‘here are a few announcements’).

So, here’s what’s happening:

A Congregational Meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 2 at 7:00 p.m. on ZOOM.

The meeting is being held to vote on recommendations from the Building and Property Team regarding work to be done on the church roof, as well as future plans for the replacement of furnaces.

Copies of the Team’s report  and recommendations are on the TMUC website (https://tmuc.ca.)  Here is the direct link

A summary of the report and its recommendations has been mailed to those whom we know do not have email.

It will be possible for people who do not have ZOOM to join the congregational meeting via telephone.  We hope that you will plan to attend.

As we plan, it is very clear that additional contributions to the Building Fund would be greatly appreciated right now!

The ZOOM link for the meeting on August 2 will be:

In September we will be in need of a musical accompanist for worship services.
