O, heaven is in my heart

Heaven is in my heart

Heaven is in my heart

The light of holiness surrounds

Heaven is in my heart

O, heaven is in my heart

O, heaven is in my heart

His precious life on me he spent

Heaven is in my heart

To give me life without an end

Heaven is in my heart

In Christ is all my confidence

Heaven is in my heart

The hope of my inheritance

Heaven is in my heart

O, heaven is in my heart

O, heaven is in my heart

We are a temple for his throne

Heaven is in my heart

And Christ is the foundation stone

Heaven is in my heart

He will return to take us home

Heaven is in my heart

The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come!’

Heaven is in my heart

O, heaven is in my heart

O, heaven is in my heart

TRINITY ADVENT STUDY: Thursday, December 13th, 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Canterbury Room.  

HOW DID OUR WORLD BECOME SECULAR?

“The major public features of our society—government, education, science, etc.—are all secular. How did religion come to be relegated to the private sphere, and separated from so many important aspects of our lives? In this lecture, I will show that, surprisingly, many of the roots of secularization can be found in the history of Christianity itself.”

Come and enjoy a time of learning with Travis DeCook. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of English at Carleton University and teaches medieval and Renaissance literature, cultural theory, and the history of the book and media. But even better he is little Ben’s dad and a member of Trinity!

 

DO YOU LIKE TO DECORATE?  Join Rev. Andrea on Tuesday, November 27th at 11 a.m. and help her decorate the Church for Advent.

 

DON’T FORGET TO RETURN YOUR COMMITMENT FORM on your recent letter BY DECEMBER 2ND.   There are spare copies at the back.

 

OUTREACH IS AT THE HEART OF FOLLOWING JESUS: for the four Sundays of Advent we will be gathering food items for the local Food Bank. There is a tree in the Sanctuary and one in Bender Hall. Our challenge is to fill the bottom of the trees with non perishable items! We can be the hands of Christ to our neighbours!

 

SHEILA, OUR WORLD VISION CHILD:  We are spending $300.00 from Sheila’s funds and sending the following as a Christmas gift:

  • $100.00 for 4 hens & 2 roosters
  • $100.00 for school supplies for 2 children
  • $100.00 to supply 2 classrooms

Please continue to put spare change in the World Vision bucket for Sheila.  There is a Christmas card to sign if you wish – it is on Sheila’s table at the back.

 

CELEBRATING ADVENT: Do you enjoy making crafts, decorating cookies and singing? Come to Church on Saturday, December 1st,

9:30am-11:00 a.m. Cost is $2 per child. We hope to see you there! Bring a friend!  Miss Jess
