Holy Trinity News – November 2016

Our church basement floor got quite sticky with all the peeling of apples for the annual St. George Apple Fest. It was great to talk and laugh together while we all worked. There has never been a problem with any pies left over from the sale! Actually, some husbands complain that the wives don’t make them any apple pies. We tell them to go and buy one from the sale!

Emma Waite, a Girl Guide from our church, showed us photos of her wonderful visit to Switzerland and talked about all her memorable experiences on the tour. Way to go Emma!

Our church is thrilled to have a new priest, Rev. Sharla Malliff, her daughter Shaelynn and her two sons, James and Ryan, join us this fall. Rev. Sharla’s sermons are very enlightening and are memorable. Her official induction into our church was in October with many priests, parishioners, family and friends in attendance. The church rocked with so many voices singing and praising God.

A youth Group from Grade 7 to Grade 12 meets every other Sunday right after church at 11:30 to do exciting things. They have had a movie and pizza night, baked brownies and rice krispie squares for the Cambridge Shelter and this week they will create Chrismons for the Christmas tree. Of course, they had to bake an extra batch of brownies to sample themselves! Lots of unique events are being planned in the future. Any youth who wish to join us, are very welcome.

Early Years is continuing at our church with a Drop In centre once a month. December 7 th is the next date when any moms, dads or grandparents are invited to bring their children. Infants to 6 years of age get to learn, have fun with other youngsters and caregivers get to mingle and connect with others as well. Early Years is hoping to set up a Drop In Centre at the church everyMonday and Wednesday from 9 to 11:30 in the new year. Come and join us! It’s free!

It was a pleasure to celebrate with Jean Whitman and her family as she celebrated her 90 th birthday this year. Jean was one of the founding members of our church.

On November 5 th , during a very busy time, our church once again made many large pots of chili to feed those people using the Cambridge Shelter (Bridges). The buns, carrots, apple cider and desserts were eagerly devoured. We were even able to leave the Shelter with a very large pot of chili for the next day also. This outreach has been a big part of what our church has done for many years.

The Advent book study, Advent Conspiracy: Can Christmas Still Change The World?, begins on November 17 th . This group meets at 10:00 on Thursdays. Everyone is welcome to join at any time.

The Sunday School Pageant will take place on Sunday, December 18 th at 10:00. All the young people, baby included, will be performing in “The Christmas Story”. This is always a special time for everyone.

During Advent, different families will participate in the lighting of the candle for that week at the beginning of each 10:00 Sunday service, as we begin our journey to the manger. On Christmas Eve, we offer a service at 4:00 pm service for families with young children and as well as a traditional Christmas service at 7:00 pm. All are welcome!
