Midweek News – April 1

Midweek News – April 1


**Food Bank has been POSTPONED until Wednesday April 20** Due To The Current Weather Conditions

Stay home and be ready’ announcements have become the norm as this snowstorm approached!

And now, here we are again – many of us working from home – or tucked in at home trying to stay warm and safe.

It’s just another April in Winnipeg!

With all the snow coming, and all the wind, we will be sending out our own alerts around the plans for the services on Easter weekend.  Look for service information in a separate message – likely on Thursday.

April is the month of Earth Day, and TMUC seeks to ‘live with respect in creation’.  So…we have a couple of projects.

We are having a pop can drive!  Please rinse and save any aluminum pop cans and bring them to the church on Sundays or during office hours.

And, we are partnering with Tru Earth for a fundraiser.  Tru Earth is a Canadian company that manufactures environmentally safe products (they started with just laundry detergent).  This link can be shared widely – and all orders through it will bring funds to TMUC – including during the April Earth Day sale that is coming.  If you need more information, please see visit this link.
