We Celebrate The Presence Of Jesus

Offertory 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.

It’s a great time to do some Christmas shopping. There’s lots of fun for adults and children. The menu at Frosty’s Fare Cafe looks terrific. Bring your family and friends.

If you have any Attic Treasures or items for the Silent Auction, bring them to Trinity during office hours Tuesday or Wednesday, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Same goes for books, toys, Fish Pond items and any other things you have for Frosty’s Fair. 

Bring your baking to Trinity Friday evening, 5:00 – 7:00. (If you just can’t make it then, bring baking as early as you can Sat. morning after 9:00.)

Set-up time for the fair is 5:00 Friday afternoon. We’ll be changing Turley Hall from a day care to a Christmas bazaar. (And back again Sat. afternoon at 2:00)

If you can help set up, want to help out at Frosty’s Fair, or have any questions contact Sue Cherry (613-730-5347).
