And hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been
poured out into our hearts through The Holy Spirit.
Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with
God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We boast in the hope of the glory of God. We also glory in our sufferings... suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
And hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through
The Holy Spirit.

We praise God and are excited to report that, this past Tuesday, the Senate of Canada passed Bill C-36 - the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act.
Having been adopted by the Senate of Canada, Bill C-36 is expected to receive Royal Assent shortly. Pray this happens speedily! The provisions of the Bill will come into force 30 days after Royal Assent, meeting the December 19, 2014 deadline set by the Supreme Court of Canada.
This is a historic moment for equality & women’s rights in Canada. For the first time in Canada’s history, the buying and advertising of sexual services will be illegal, and the government will provide robust funding to help women and youth escape prostitution.
Christian News from Lebanon
The Christian community in Winnipeg has a rare opportunity to hear the testimony of a Baptist pastor who serves on the front lines of mission in the Middle East, on Monday, November 17 at 7:30pm, at Broadway-First, Honeyman @ Walnut (use Walnut St. entrance).
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB) has invited Pastor Jihad Haddad of the True Vine Baptist Church to speak to groups in various parts of Canada. Pastor Hadddad is part of a network of churches in Lebanon and Syria that are providing food aid to Syrian refugees and displaced people. In addition, the True Vine church has started a school for Syrian children, assisted with issues of shelter and medical needs and launched new services for his growing congregation.
Trinity Western University’s ‘Code of Conduct’ Repercussions
One of the reasons Canada has our Charter of Rights and Freedoms is to protect minority rights from the whims of the majority. The recent reversal by the Law Society of B.C., which now refuses to accredit graduates of Trinity Western University’s proposed law school, is a prime example of what the Charter is to prevent, says EFC President Bruce J. Clemenger (www.evangelicalfellowship.ca). The graduates are being discriminated against because TWU has a “Christian community covenant” which affirms the validity/sanctity of marriage between a man and woman.
This parallels the decision of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society that would also ban graduates from Trinity Western University from practicing law in Nova Scotia. That ban will be challenged at the Nova Scotia Supreme Court in December. The EFC (together with Christian Higher Education Canada) filed legal arguments in the case last week, arguing that the provincial law society overstepped its mandate and that its decision violates the religious freedom of TWU and its graduates. Please continue praying. More information is available at: http://www.evangelicalfellowship.ca/twulaw .
Children's Ministry Volunteers Needed
The Nursery and the Preschool programs are both in need of volunteers to serve on a once-a-month rotation. These positions require no preparation or extra work outside of regular Sunday school hours. If you are willing to serve, or have any questions, please contact Jolene.
Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We boast in the hope of the glory of God. We also glory in our sufferings... suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through
the Holy Spirit.
