Tintern in Person and Online - Join us this Sunday for in-person service at 9:45 am (note we are back to our regular start time). If you are feeling unwell, please remain at home. Masks are optional, however Niagara Region Public Health recommends residents wear a mask in indoor spaces.

To watch live on our website click here https://www.tinternchurchofchrist.ca/watch. It will go live about 9:45 Sunday morning. You can always find us on Tintern's YouTube channel as well (https://www.youtube.com/user/tinterncofc).

Communion - Please note that the communion cups have been moved into the auditorium. You will find them in baskets on tables. One table will be near the door to the kitchen at the back wall and one will be on the right side of the door as you enter the auditorium. The basket for donations will still be in the foyer.

Kids Coin Collection - This Sunday is our coin collection. Our kids are going to help collect the money for the kids we are sponsoring. We are sponsoring two children through Christian Relief Fund, Gabriela Jordan (from Piedras Negras, Mexico) and Ambar Gonzales (from Tegucigalpa, Honduras). We also send funds to CityKidz. You can also etransfer money to tinternpayables@gmail.com, in the message box be sure to let us know that the funds are for the kids collection. We have received a note from each of the girls. A copy is attached to this email and a printed copy is posted on the bulletin board between the bathrooms.

Worship Schedule - We are putting together a 3 month worship schedule, something we used to do on a regular basis before COVID and so now is a great time to express your interest in participating. If you would like to be added to a schedule of volunteer worship participants (directing our prayers, our song leaders, or those who serve our congregation around the table or with family time) please reach out to Noel (noel@tinternchurchofchrist.ca) and we'll add you to our schedule. Thanks.

Erika's Clothing Drive - Hello everyone! This Sunday is the last day I will be collecting items for my clothing drive! I have received many donations so far and I am very grateful. If you would like to make a donation you can do cash or e-transfer at Erika.tallman@icloud.com or you can donate new/gently used adult or children's winter clothing gear and drop them in my green bin in the front foyer! Thank you!

Living Water International - Dear Friend, If you're like us, you commit to at least one resolution for the new year. However, our resolution always remains the same: United, as a global Christian community, we will end the water crisis so that all people can lead flourishing lives.
And we certainly saw your extraordinary faith in action during 2022! 
Because of your generosity in just the last year, over 280,000 more people now have access to safe water! These are not just numbers on a page; these numbers reflect real people whose lives were transformed in 2022 and will continue to grow and prosper for years to come because of the impact that safe water has on every aspect of life.
For more than 30 years, our community has changed the lives of millions who rejoice with water, for life, in Jesus' name every day. Thank you for committing to another year to safe water and the living water of Christ!
– Your friends at Living Water International
