The Communion

Communion Hymn:  Come You Hungry Ones   (Tune: Kum ba Yah)

“Come, you hungry ones,” Jesus said.

“Come to me and know: I am Bread!

Come, you weary ones; you are blest!

In me, find your rest.”


Hear our cry, O God, hear our prayer!

Heal the ones who know, deep despair;

Mend the broken ones from their pain.

Make them whole again.

God, we need you, too, so we pray:

Give us life and health every day.

Give us joy and peace, trusting you.

In Christ, make us new.


We are saved, O Lord, by your grace;

We are healed and sent from this place.

Through your Spirit’s gifts, may we share Your love everywhere.

FROSTY’S FAIR is in two weeks, Sat. Nov. 3, 9:30a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Invite your friends to come. It’s a bazaar for adults and kids. Special events for youngsters: crafts and decorating cookies at the Gingerbread Room, buying gifts for their family and friends, fishing at the fish pond, and the Kids’ Corner at the Book Nook.  They will like the lunch menu at Frosty’s Fare Cafe.

Helping out at Frosty’s Fair is a lot of fun! Don’t be shy. Ask Sue Cherry (613-730-5347) or any of the table conveners what you can do. Would you like to help decorate? Can you help set up Friday? Want to work at Frosty’s Fare Cafe? You can work at the bazaar for a couple of hours and still shop like crazy.

The Book Nook is going to have a terrific selection of books this year. Sue Taylor (613-230-3903) is busy sorting books, CDs and DVDs, and she still has a bit of room on the shelves at the Book Nook. (but no magazines, text books, computer manuals or encyclopedia).

ROAST BEEF DINNER: Trinity is planning a fundraising roast beef dinner on Saturday, November 26th at 6:00 pm.  Wine will be available for purchase, and there will be draws and entertainment.  David Hemings (613-822-4697; and Heather Maclachlan (613- 523-1747; are organizing this event, and are looking for volunteers.  Please contact one of them if you are able to help out.

CHANGE FOR CHANGE.  Don’t forget to drop all your spare change into the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  Check the scrap book for the latest updates on her progress.



If you have any announcement that didn’t make this week’s bulletin, please let Rev. Andrea know prior to the service and she will ensure that it is read.
