CONFIRMATION TODAY   Five of our young adults are making professions of their faith in Jesus today during the Rite of Confirmation at the 10:45 service.  They will be answering questions and sharing their essay during the Testimony and Reception Hour at 9:30 in the Sanctuary and the Life Center.  We encourage you to join us in supporting these young adults in their Christian faith.  Our confirmands are:  Daniel Cearley, Kaity Gibson, Abbey Griffin, Fletcher Hall, and Bowen McCarver.  Please keep them in your prayers.

ROGERS MAYOR'S PRAYER BREAKFAST   Holy Trinity is again sponsoring a table at the Rogers Mayor's Prayer Breakfast on May 7.  They usually start serving around 6:30 AM.  Dick Trammel is the speaker this year.  We have 8 seats at our table.  There are 3 seats still available. If you would like to attend, sign up on the bulletin board in the Narthex or contact Pastor Besel.


PRAYER WALKING  We will have a prayer walk on Saturday, May 16 between 10 and noon. Reasons to have a prayer walk: ask God to claim the neighborhood as His, and to ask God to care for our neighbors. We walk in small groups praying silently or as a group for things we see or hear. When we return to the church we have a group prayer time for all we have seen or heard. It is an opportunity to meet some people in the neighborhood if they are outside. It is also a time of fellowship for those who attend. Please plan to join us.

LIFE THOUGHTS   "The Apostle Paul seemed to have thought that giving thanks was front and center in the life of the Christian: Give thanks in all things (1 Timothy 5:18) ... always and for everything giving thanks (Ephesians 5:20) ... in everything by prayer ... with thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6). And be thankful ... with thankfulness in your heart toward God ... do everything ... giving thanks to God the Father (Colossians 3:13-17). Continue steadfastly in prayer, with thanksgiving (Colossians 4:2)." James M. Kushiner, the Fellowship of St. James

VIDEO SCREENS  Are you looking for a way to help with the worship services? Do you like working with computers? Doing the video screens for services might be just your thing.

Attention Youth: this would be a perfect way for you to share your talents.
