LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  

God became an embryo to declare embryos precious. He experienced gestation to hallow the womb as His canvas. He received parents to especially bless procreation and childrearing. He suffered to sanctify all of our afflictions, including the untreatable ones. Jesus came to claim even the tiniest of our species and make His family out of the neediest human beings (Galatians 4:4-7). We get to call God “Father” and become brothers and sisters to any human being!  (Pentecost II)

 LIFE QUOTES  “People with Alzheimer’s or dementia often tragically lose their short-term memory while the long-term memory continues. They may go back to the memories of the good old days. Those memories can bring peace and happiness. When the Holy Spirit, your perfect memory aid, reminds and re-teaches you everything about Jesus, He removes the bad memories of sin and punishment and fear. He replaces them with joy, confidence, hope, and forgiveness in Jesus. That results in a peace that goes beyond understanding and beyond this life.” Rev. Peter Sulzle, St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, Redwood Falls, Minnesota –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 FAITH & FILM The Ed Team is putting together a family film night once each month for the summer. The first movie is TODAY at 5:00pm in the chapel and we will be watching Finding Nemo and talking about how our Father relentlessly comes after us when we are lost. There will be a free will offering taken to support Snack Packs for Kids – a program that provides food for children over the weekends. Please invite friends and family!

 YOUTH SUMMER SWIM –  is planned for June 26th so long as we have good weather for the float. We will be at the Wrights for a grill out and swim session. Friends are encouraged.

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS – We are in need of a few awesome souls to help teach during the summer. We have one class and lessons are all provided and straight forward. Please consider and pray on this ministry opportunity and speak with Cameron if you are interested or have questions.

NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING We are three weeks away and counting until the National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis. It is an incredible experience for our young students to have. I ask as we draw closer and closer, that you keep these young people in your prayers. Pray that they are receptive to God’s work in their lives and in their faith during the days of NYG. Pray also for the adult chaperones that are going. That they remain patient, help our youth grow in Christ, and get some sleep.

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  

The best fathers guide their children to find their voice instead of stifling it. Even the youngest among us—unborn ones, too!—have a sacred privilege and vocation to take part in testifying of the goodness of our Maker and Savior (Psalm 8:2). Their Gospel-motivated voices may speak without grown-up words, but they strengthen us as evidence of how precious we are to our Heavenly Father even though we are helpless.  (Holy Trinity/Father’s Day)

LIFE QUOTES  “The good things that fathers do for their children and give to their children are blessings from God, for fathers and mothers are God’s representatives to their children. As disciplinarians they are representatives of His holiness. As providers they are representatives of His goodness and generosity. As teachers of the Gospel they are representatives of His grace. And as representatives not only do they act toward their children on God’s behalf, they also demonstrate to them who their God is and what He is like, for it is His blessings that they bring to their children.” From the “Lutheran Spokesman” –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

We will be leaving church around 8am and get back in the early evening, around 4 normally. The backup date if we have bad weather on the 19th is June 26th.

TO THINK ABOUT

EACH DAY CAN BE A GOOD DAY 

Sometimes when things go wrong for us,

it’s easy to forget the happiness we’ve seen and the good fortune that we’ve met.

Those rough times can be good times to think of friends we’ve known, of favors that they’ve done for us,

of kindness that they’ve shown, to think of fun-filled times we’ve spent, nice places that we’ve been, of the

beauty that life offers us time and time again, and then a day when things go wrong can turn into a day for

us to think how very often things have gone our way.

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  

The world promises that abortions, embryo experiments, and physician-assisted suicides will achieve peace. But wherever death establishes an empire, it excuses nobody and enslaves all to grief. The life-giving Spirit that Jesus bestows in His Gospel instead produces the real peace of being unconditionally loved by and infinitely precious to the Ruler of the Universe (John 16:27). And this peace is for all persons and all circumstances (Acts 2:17-21).  (Pentecost)

 NYG PREPARE The NYG is an amazing experience, as long as you can get to all the things to see. To help get ready, the Youth Ministry Team is leading an NYG Prepare event at Lake Atalanta, today from 12:30-2:30. All are welcome to join us as we walk around the lake, enjoy a lunch, and have a small Bible study.

LIFE QUOTES  “God’s Word resonates loudly the truth that EVERY life is a human being, SOMEONE created by GOD, and redeemed by the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, and called into a relationship with God by the Holy Spirit. As Gospel-motivated voices for life, we MUST do our research, measure it against God’s plumb line, and speak up to expose the lies and proclaim the truth—God’s VOICE of TRUTH!” Lynette Auch, president of Lutherans For Life –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  

Abortion advocates sometimes claim the Scriptures are silent about the practice. However, the Greek term for the “sorcerers” condemned in Revelation 22:15 also refers to those who prepared abortifacients. On the other hand, every story entrusted to the Lord of Life ends beautifully (Revelation 22:1-5)—even if it involves a surprise pregnancy or a terminal diagnosis. (Easter VII)

 LIFE QUOTES  “Instead of dreaming of what your spouse will do for you, you should ask yourself, are you willing to serve him or her sacrificially? To paraphrase John F. Kennedy: Ask not what your spouse can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your spouse.” Pastor Ricky Jacob, Jesus Our Savior Lutheran Church and preschool, Winnebago –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 IT’S NOT TOO LATE!  If you pick up a baby bottle TODAY, you will have TWO weeks to fill it with spare change (or a check) before it’s due back to church on Father’s Day (June 16th).  All money collected in the baby bottles goes to Loving Choices – a local pregnancy center.  If you have any questions about the Baby Bottle campaign, please see a member of the Outreach Ministry Team.

 THANK YOU!  Thank you to EVERYONE (Dave & Wendie Ferguson, Dave & Christy Lehenbauer, Evan Wright, Shirley Bernthal, Karen Launderville, and Ray Eschenburg) who volunteered at Helping Hands in Bentonville last Saturday!  The help was MUCH appreciated!  Can’t handle the four-hour shifts?  Consider shift splitting. Two of our volunteers did this on Saturday and really enjoyed it!  If you are interested in volunteering, or have questions about this, please contact Dave Ferguson or a member of the Outreach Ministry Team.

IT’S A WIN!!  The Arkansas Naturals won the ballgame in the 9th inning Tuesday night!  Thank you to all who attended Lutheran Night at Arvest Ballpark on the 28th.  The weather was FANTASTIC and the game was a thrill to watch!  A special thank you to Matt Bolte who drove the church van to and from the game so a few church members and Soul’s Harbor men could attend.  A BIG thank you to Matt Bolte and the Outreach Ministry Team for the FREE tickets!!  Check out our Facebook page for pictures of the evening.  We hope to make this an annual event.

YOUTH SUMMER MIX ACTIVITIES Summer is upon us and school is finished for the semester. So it is time to kick back and have some fun! We have many different activites scheduled for our youth this summer and it starts with a BBQ at the Pullmann house on June 5th from 5-7pm. We will be posting in the News and Notes as we draw closer to events. For a full list of events, head to holytrin.org/youth or email cameron@holytrin.org

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED  Laurie Martin is still looking for 4 volunteers to help with steam cleaning the pews in the Sanctuary.  Laurie is hoping to get this done in late June, or early July.  Doing the cleaning in-house will result in a significant savings.  The last time this was done, it was contracted out for $1,200.

YEEHAW VBS The education team is changing things up a bit this year with our VBS. Instead of a 5-day program, we opted for a 2-day weekend event to set Holy Trinity apart from the many other VBS programs in our area. It will go from July 27th & 28th from 5pm-8pm.

Pastor Longman is set to visit Holy Trinity June 1-3rd to get to know our church and our community. On June 2nd he will have a time to meet and ask questions from 9:30-10:30am in the chapel. Please join us in praying for and welcoming Pastor Longman to Holy Trinity.

FEED MY SHEEP is next Sunday, June 2nd. We invite you to bring some food along for the Pantry when you come to church or to make a financial contribution so food can be purchased from the food bank.  We thank you for supporting this ministry of our congregation to the people of our community.

THE LUTHERAN HOUR   Today on KURM (790 AM) at 12:30 P.M. & The Bott Radio Network at 8 A.M. on 89.3 F.M.  " Sculptor Spirit" Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler  The Holy Spirit is the Sculptor. Our lives are His medium. The image of Jesus is His goal.  (John 16:7-15)

HOLY TRINITY BIBLE STUDIES

Monday   2nd & 4th Mondays at 2:00pm. – Led by Vern Schaefer Rotating Hostesses: Herb & Shirley Bernthal, Spike & Dolores Hermes, Joe & Barbara Raleigh, Maxine Reihman.

BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN  Please be sure to pick up a baby bottle from the table in the Narthex on your way out of church today.  Fill the bottle with spare change (or a check) and return it to church on Father’s Day.  This is part of the annual Baby Bottle Campaign put on by Loving Choices.  The Outreach Ministry Team had a chance to tour the facility in April and were VERY impressed by what they have to offer.  Loving Choices supports families from “I think I might be pregnant” to 9 months after delivery!  They even have a mobile van (with an ultrasound machine inside) that parks in various locations throughout Northwest Arkansas including the parking lot across from Planned Parenthood in Fayetteville. 

 GREETERS, READERS, VIDEO OPERATORS, OFFICE HELPERS, COUNTERS We are looking ahead to third quarter scheduling.  If you have vacations or other obligations planned during July, August, and September please let us know.  We will not schedule you at times you specify.  Thanks for looking ahead and for all you do.

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  Speaking and acting as Gospel-motivated voices for life sometimes meets with frustration and discouragement. Nevertheless, what we call our failures God calls His patience. The sanctity of life is not our project but His holy truth and will. The courageous and compassionate proclamation of it cannot fail to bring forth fruit, however small or slow (Acts 16:13-15). Take heart—He who has overcome the world abides in this cause (John 16:33). (Easter VI)

LIFE QUOTES  “Ascension Day, a holy day falling inconspicuously on a Thursday in May, is the conspicuous declaration that we are not left as orphans. In the same post-resurrection body that He invited Thomas to touch, Jesus invites us to full humanity even today. He ascended with a body, He shares in our humanity, extending His own body even now, promising to return for our own bodies. Christ is preparing a room for us, and we can know it is real because He himself is real.” Jill Carattini, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 LCMS NATIONAL OFFERING On June 9th we will join with LCMS churches across the nation in taking a special offering to support the LCMS and their mission to spread God’s word to the world.

 YOUTH SUMMER MIX ACTIVITIES Summer is upon us and school is finished for the semester. So it is time to kick back and have some fun! We have many different activites scheduled for our youth this summer and it starts with a BBQ at the Pullmann house on June 5th from 5-7pm. We will be posting in the News and Notes as we draw closer to events. For a full list of events, head to holytrin.org/youth or email cameron@holytrin.org

 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED  Laurie Martin is looking for 4 volunteers to help with steam cleaning the pews in the Sanctuary.  This can be done at the volunteers convenience, but every-thing needs time to dry, so optimally, this should occur in the first part of the week. Doing the cleaning in-house will result in a significant savings.  The last time this was done, it was contracted out for $1,200

 Don’t miss an amazing opportunity to attend Lutheran Night at Arvest Ballpark on TUESDAY, MAY 28TH.  The signup sheet is on the bulletin board in the Narthex.  We met the minimum ticket sales needed to get the discounted rate!  AND, Matt Bolte has generously used a Thrivent Action Team to support this Outreach event, therefore the first 40 tickets are FREE!  Thanks Matt!!  We also plan to provide 10 free tickets to Souls Harbor so they can join us – what a tremendous opportunity to show the men that Holy Trinity loves them and supports their efforts!!

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  What God has made clean, do not call common” (Acts 11:9). The same grace that sanctifies our consciences also safeguards the lives of the least of these. By creating them with His own fingers (Psalm 139:13), redeeming them with His own blood (2 Corinth-ians 5:19), and calling them with His own Spirit and Word (Matthew 28:19), the Lord our God has declared every member of our race, including embryos and elderly ones, not only clean but precious. (Easter V)

 LIFE QUOTES  Both before and after their births, our children are precious lives belonging to God and redeemed by Him. (Their mothers are, too.) Each of our days is ordained by Him, including the challenging days of motherhood.” Marie K. MacPherson, author of “Meditations on the Vocation of Motherhood”–If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  Among motherhood’s greatest works is comforting distraught little ones. Where the world would wipe out lives by murder, the Lamb once slain but raised again mothers us by wiping away our tears (Revelation 7:17). Heavenly Father’s forgiveness and salvation heal even the guilt of abortion, the grief of terminal diagnosis, and the fear of complicated pregnancy. The Hand that rules the world also rocks the cradle. (Easter IV/Mother’s Day)

 LIFE QUOTES  “[I]t does not say that the honoring, serving, and obeying one’s parents is conditional or in response to their earning or deserving it. No, one is to love and cherish them as well as honoring, serving, and obeying them as if they were God Himself … The good news is that where we have obviously failed, Jesus did not. He not only honored His step-father Joseph and his mother Mary, but also His heavenly Father. He offers you His payment for your sin and a place in God’s family, now and forever.” Pastor Ricky Jacob, Jesus Our Savior Lutheran Church and preschool, Winnebago –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

VOLUNTEERS ARE STILL NEEDED on Monday, May 13. Holy Trinity will be one of the Food Pantry's that will reap some of the benefits of the Post Office Carriers food drive. We still need volunteers to help check for expiration dates, sort, and store the food. Please sign up in Narthex or call the office.

 OUTREACH MINISTRY TEAM  A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped provide a chili dinner for the families utilizing the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital in Rogers.  Volunteers included:  Jan Wildenborg, Shirley Bernthal, Donna Spencer, Libby Garner, Joyce Bauer, Gerri Jennings, and the Bolte family.  It was a huge success!  The staff at the Ronald McDonald House sent the following email after the dinner:

Hello Casey and Church friends!  Thank you again for providing dinner tonight!  I enjoyed getting to meet you and your family, and I wanted to let you know that after you left, the chili was soon devoured!  Family and friends gathered around the dining table to consume your yummy chili dinner, and it was such a nice sight to see.   We appreciate the time and care you spent to provide a delicious meal for our families, and we know the families greatly appreciate it too.  Please send our gratitude to the rest of your church family.

                            Thank you once more – Ronald McDonald Family Room Staff

While we were dropping off the meal, the staff mentioned there several openings to provide meals in the coming months.  If you are interested in providing a dinner on your own or with a small group of friends, please visit www.rmhcofarkoma.org to sign up.  If you need help signing up, please contact Casey Bolte at 479.644.3618

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH. Even the one whose faculties are declining and whose dying appears undignified shines in the light of God’s love and power (John 21:18-19). Jesus who rose, reigns, and is returning smuggles blessings in every burden. His gracious guidance speedily and mightily conducts dances out of dirges (Psalm 30:11). And He extends this compassion to every human being without exception (Revelation 5:9)!  (Easter III)

LIFE QUOTES  “Whoa. What a cool thought! Before your parents ever laid eyes on you before they fought over whether to name you John Jr. or Steven, God knew your name and He wanted you as his. In fact, it goes back further than you think. Before God even created the very first parents, He knew you were coming someday and He chose you, specifically you, for his team.” Diane Kerr, Time of Grace –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

HELPING HANDS - Saturday, May 25th is the next volunteer event for Holy Trinity to support Helping Hands. This faith-based organization provides food for around 100 families each week and needs our help to run their store. If you can spare a few hours of time, you will be supporting a great cause and getting an extra discount on merchandise at the same time! Please sign up in the Narthex or see Dave Ferguson. 

VISIT ISRAEL  Have you ever considered visiting the Holy Land?  I know that every person who has done so would encourage you to pray about it and to go.  In fact I can point out several people in our congregation who have been and can tell you all about it.  Why go?  It will deepen your faith in ways you cannot imagine.  When you read the Bible and it talks about places you can say I’ve been there.  You will be able to relate and understand in a new way.  I am leading another group to Israel January 15th – 26th, 2020.  An information packet is on the bulletin board in the Narthex or just contact me and I’ll be glad to give you a copy.  Pam Pickett 479-601-2550 pamsue27@gmail.com

POST OFFICE ANNUAL LETTER CARRIERS FOOD DRIVE  Please tell everyone you know that on Saturday, May 11th, there will be the Rogers Post Office's Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. This year they need help getting the word out by social media or by word of mouth. To participate in the food drive just leave a bag of food by your mail box on Saturday, May 11th.

On Monday, May 13th, Holy Trinity will be one of the Food Pantry's that will reap some of the benefits of this drive. We will need a volunteer driver with a pick up truck (and at least one volunteer helper) to go to the post office on Monday, May 13th after 9 A.M. to pick up a truck load of food. As we have done in the last couple of years we will need approximately 10 volunteers to help check for expiration dates, sort, and store the food. Please call the office, or email Elaine (elaine@holytrin.org) or Krista (krista@holytrin.org) if you are willing and able to help with this important project. Thank you ~ Krista Malone~

THANK YOU  I would like to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers, Get Well Cards & gift card. I am happy to be back to work serving the Lord and sharing God's love to others.  I also want to thank Joyce Bauer, Christy Lehenbauer, and Pat Rader, and anyone else that I don't know of, that helped out in the office while I was off work. You are appreciated! Thank you so much. ~ Krista Malone~

LOVING CHOICES BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN:  This is an annual community-wide fundraiser for Loving Choices.  Our church has participated for the past several years and it fits well with this year’s Outreach focus of children and local charities.  Be sure to pick up a baby bottle in the Narthex on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12th) and fill it with spare change, cash, or a check and return it by Father’s Day (Sunday, June 16).

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.

“Young men and maidens together, old men and children! Let them praise the name of the Lord[!]” (Psalm 148:12-13). Every life—however little, however weak, however seemingly miserable—has been brought forth by our good God for joyful purpose. He takes hold of even the most hopeless-looking situations (Revelation 1:18) to show—and share—His abundant, everlasting life (John 20:27). Behold it, believe it, and receive it!  (Easter II)

 LIFE QUOTES  “Death is the enemy of the human race—an enemy no one can fight or avoid forever. But God has done a new thing—He has raised Jesus Christ from the dead, never to die again. What other god has done anything like that in all the stories and fables? But wait, there’s more. What god has ever promised to share everlasting life with everyone who trusts in Him? Only the true God. Only Jesus.” Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries–If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

APRIL IS TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS MONTH  As part of a four-part Emergency Plan Series, the Holy Trinity Safety Team has designated April as Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness month. During this period, members of the congregation will be briefed on what to do during a weather emergency and will be provided instructions on the location of the designated tornado shelter area in the church. Instructional brochures will be provided for each family.

GOOD NEWS REGARDING THE FOOD PANTRY  Krista Malone, our dedicated Office Assistant suffered a fall which resulted in a broken leg.  Krista’s continues to heal and has decided to return to work beginning Monday (at least for a few hours per day).  In my opinion, Krista will still need some volunteer help on Monday, Thursday, and Friday from Noon to 4 pm and on Tuesday from 9 am to 1 pm. You do not need to stay for the full 4 hours.  Any block of time will be helpful.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.  There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.

HELPING HANDS - Saturday, May 25th is the next volunteer event for Holy Trinity to support Helping Hands. This faith-based organization provides food for around 100 families each week and needs our help to run their store. If you can spare a few hours of time, you will be supporting a great cause and getting an extra discount on merchandise at the same time! Please sign up in the Narthex or see Dave Ferguson. 

VISIT ISRAEL  Have you ever considered visiting the Holy Land?  I know that every person who has done so would encourage you to pray about it and to go.  In fact I can point out several people in our congregation who have been and can tell you all about it.  Why go?  It will deepen your faith in ways you cannot imagine.  When you read the Bible and it talks about places you can say I’ve been there.  You will be able to relate and understand in a new way.  I am leading another group to Israel January 15th – 26th, 2020.  An information packet is on the bulletin board in the Narthex or just contact me and I’ll be glad to give you a copy.  Pam Pickett 479-601-2550 pamsue27@gmail.com

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE MEAL   Saturday May 4th, we will once again be serving a meal to the families of people staying overnight at the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital.  These parents are staying overnight due to serious illnesses to their children in the hospital.  We can show Jesus’ love to the parents and children by providing this meal.  The sign-up for this is on the bulletin board.

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.

A surprise pregnancy or an incurable condition can leave us feeling like we have to make friends with death just to keep from suffering alone. But God goes with us as our Savior and Father even into death’s domain (Psalm 16:10). And He never escorts us there without also carrying us through it (Psalm 16:11). We don’t have to surrender a single breath, because every Good Friday finds its Easter Sunday in Jesus!

 EASTER BREAKFAST join us for breakfast in the Life Center starting at 8:15a. All proceeds go to support our youth and their trip to the National Youth Gathering

 LIFE QUOTES  “When the devil speaks, do not believe the lies. Whether your life be young or old, the deceit of death will enter it. You will walk by caskets. You will lie in a hospital bed. You will hear the devil speak in his native language. His lies will come to you just as they did to me. See through his faulty speech. Recognize his broken narrative. Deny every phony word. Christ calls you a Christian, and the devil’s language holds no truth. When the deceit of death enters your life, listen to the truth Christ speaks on this day … ‘He will speak again. You will visit family again. She will greet you again. Christ will rise again.’” Rev. Paul Spaude, Martin Luther College  –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 APRIL IS TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS MONTH  As part of a four-part Emergency Plan Series, the Holy Trinity Safety Team has designated April as Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness month.

Instructional brochures will be provided for each family.

 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE FOOD PANTRY  Krista Malone, our dedicated Office Assistant suffered a fall which resulted in a broken leg.  Krista’s orthopedic doctor reports that surgery will not be necessary, however it will be necessary for her to keep the leg immobilized in order for it to heal.  In order for the Food Pantry to remain open at our current level, we need volunteers for Thursday, and Friday from Noon to 4 pm and on Tuesday from 9 am to 1 pm. You do not need to stay for the full 4 hours.  Any block of time will be helpful.  Times that we cannot find a volunteer to staff the pantry will mean closing our doors.  We have place a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.

– Our Almighty Maker reserves the right and responsibility for decisions about life and death (Deuteronomy 32:39). Jesus has earned this authority by swallowing up death in His crucifixion. And He has proven Himself trustworthy in life-and-death matters by bringing forth joy even from sorrow in His resurrection. What a great relief! The times and terms of human lives and deaths rest securely in His loving and saving hand. (Palm Sunday)

 EASTER BREAKFAST Next Sunday, join us for breakfast in the Life Center starting at 8:15a. All proceeds go to support our youth and their trip to the National Youth Gathering. If you want donate food for this event, check the bulletin board in the narthex for donation slips.

 LIFE QUOTES  “This Sunday, the church [invites] the world to remem-ber the One who comes into the midst of a very fickle humanity—duplicity, defeat, violence, injustice, pain, and all. He comes near to good and bad intentions, near the ashes of what was meant to be honor, the ruins of attempts on our own. And despite our oscillating thoughts, despite the sin we cannot leave, He invites us into a disruptively different sort of story of defeat. The Son has made his triumphal entry. And yet He comes to bring us the cross, to the one sacrifice that speaks to the world’s pain.” Jill Carattini, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries – –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 HISPANIC MINISTRY needs your help! Want to make a difference in your community?  We do that.  Every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 English as a Second Language class for free to anyone who wants to come.  We have 13 students this semester and need your help ! Please contact Peggy Jones at 479-633-2050 if you have an hour or so to spare each week.  We can put you right to work!!

APRIL IS TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS MONTH  As part of a four-part Emergency Plan Series, the Holy Trinity Safety Team has designated April as Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness month. During this period, members of the congregation will be briefed on what to do during a weather emergency and will be provided instructions on the location of the designated tornado shelter area in the church.

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.

Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” (Psalm 126:5). Choosing life isn’t always easy. Enduring illnesses, giving birth, caring for children, and speaking truth in love often involve suffering. However, our good Lord forms all people—and their circumstances—for Himself. And life received from Him brings celebrations that eclipse all sorrows. Whoever trusts Christ’s grace will also take hold of His glory (Philippians 3:8-11).

LIFE QUOTES  Jesus came to save us, to show love to us; He came because He is pro-life, pro-eternal life, and He came to give eternal life to you, to me, to those children unwanted by anyone else, to those mothers who have fallen into sin, to the disabled and elderly forgotten by everyone else. Jesus came for you, not to condemn you, but to save you. He came to destroy death with all of its power over us, and His Easter victory, which we will celebrate very soon, is a day of life, eternal life, for all.” Rev.

 APRIL IS TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS MONTH  As part of a four-part Emergency Plan Series, the Holy Trinity Safety Team has designated April as Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness month. During this period, members of the congregation will be briefed on what to do during a weather emergency and will be provided instructions on the location of the designated tornado shelter area in the church. Instructional brochures will be provided for each family.

In the future you will receive additional Emergency Plan instructions for Active Shooter, Medical Emergencies and Fires.  

NEWS AND NOTES  Last Sunday’s edition of New and Notes contained duplicate second and third pages.  I apologize for the error.  This makes a really good case for receiving the electronic version since the error occurred in the printing process. 

 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE FOOD PANTRY  Krista Malone, our dedicated Office Assistant suffered a fall which resulted in a broken knee.  As of now, her prognosis is unknown.  Time and medical appointments will tell us more, but presently we are looking at a minimum two week duration.  In order for the Food Pantry to remain open at our current level, we need volunteers for Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from Noon to 4 pm and on Tuesday from 9 am to 1 pm.  Times that we cannot find a volunteer to staff the pantry will mean closing our doors.  Please call or email Elaine or Cameron if you can help.

OUTREACH MINISTRY TEAM  Thank you SO much to everyone that helped provide a spaghetti dinner on Saturday to the families utilizing the Ronald McDonald House area at Mercy in Rogers.  The meal was much appreciated!  If you missed out on helping with this meal, no worries - we are doing it again on Saturday, May 4th.  A signup sheet is on the permanent bulletin board in the Narthex.  This is a really easy outreach opportunity that anyone can do.  Feeling adventurous and want to do this on your own or with a group of friends?  It’s easy!  Go to www.rmhcofarkoma.org.  Click on Get Involved and then choose Share-A-Meal from the drop down menu.  Choose the Rogers location on the next screen and you can see a calendar with available dates through the end of July.  If you have any questions, please contact a member of the Outreach Ministry Team.  Thank you!!

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH. Many who take part in violence against life feel like prodigals (Luke 15:13). Our Lord never ceases to see Himself as Father even to these (Luke 15:22-24). He breaks His heart open as much for them as for their victims. He keeps reaching out in reconcilia-tion with the relief, healing, and cheer they seek. We know the way to our generous God because He has guided us on that way Himself.  (Lent IV)

LIFE QUOTES  God is the ultimate Designer. He designed the greatest good the world has ever seen to come from the most heinous evil mankind has ever produced. You are never too stained for God to love. When you are feeling weak and foolish, give thanks to God for that, because that’s exactly the kind of person that God likes to use.” Rev. Dan Larsen, pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church, Wabasso, Minnesota, and Trinity Lutheran Church, Sanborn, Minnesota –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

HISPANIC MINISTRY needs your help! Want to make a difference in your community?  We do that.  Every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 we offer both a beginning and an intermediate English as a Second Language class for free to anyone who wants to come.  We make friends for life and help to improve our friends' lives by teaching them English and loving them.  We have 13 students this semester and need your help ! Please contact Peggy Jones at 479-633-2050 if you have an hour or so to spare each week.  We can put you right to work!!

 RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE DINNER After a long day at the hospital, there’s nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal.  Let’s get together and prepare a comforting meal for families utilizing the Ronald McDonald house area at Mercy Hospital in Rogers.  The Outreach Ministry team has committed our church to serve dinner on Saturday, April 6th.  Please use the sign-up sheet in the Narthex to provide part of the meal.  Items are due at church by 4:00pm on that Saturday.  We won’t know how many people we will be serving until the day before – plan on 8 to 20 people.  As soon as we find out, we will call, text, or email you with the headcount – so please be sure to list a phone number or email when you sign up.  THANK YOU!!

GREETER NEEDED  We still need a greeter for the early service (7:00 am) on Easter Sunday.  Maxine Reihman has graciously said she would serve, but this is EASTER SUNDAY, she will need help.  Hope one of you will say yes.  Let the office know.

 FEED MY SHEEP  Next week is Feed My Sheep Sunday.  Please remember your less fortunate brothers and sisters.  Place your donation in the wagon in the Narthex.  It is greatly appreciated.

 PINOCHLE CARDS  March winds, April showers and pinochle cards on Friday,

April 5th in the fellowship hall starting at 5:30 pm.  Come on out all you

regulars and new comers for fellowship & refreshments.  We will set-up at 5 pm & begin play at 5:30.  Don't forget your treat, um!  um!

 LOST AND FOUND  A jar of soup labels was found in the church.  Please call the office to claim.

LENT – AN EARLY START TO SPRING CLEANING  Although Lent often starts before Spring, it is an appropriate time for spring cleaning.  The Word “Lent” comes from old German and English words for “Spring.”  So while it may be too soon to open windows or hang clothes on a line, this is an ideal time for spiritual spring cleaning.  Lent calls us to examine our beliefs, confess and dispose of old grudges and selfish habits, dust off our Bibles for a new routine of study and prayer, air out our hearts and brighten our attitudes.  “Lent Cleaning” lets the Holy Spirit freshen our faith – and it is never to early for that.

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCHGod finds no pleasure in death (Ezekiel 33:11), whether of the wicked or of the innocent. Neither will we, particularly since He has delivered us instead into the position of watchmen for life (Ezekiel 33:7). We have responsibility for warning about the evils of abortion, embryo experiments, and physician-assisted suicide (Ezekiel 33:8). And we get the privilege of winning over hearts, rescuing eternities, and making brothers of neighbors (Ezekiel 33:14-16) by the Gospel of His unconditional love. (Lent III)

LIFE QUOTES  The Virgin Mary’s womb became the dwelling place of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word by whom all things were made. Within the first month, the heart of the Logos in human flesh was beating, like ours, with electrical impulses, pumping blood through His body, blood He would later shed for our sins. But the full miracle of the Incarnation was not just in seeing the Man in the flesh but much more: in Mary’s Son we saw with our eyes real things that are only visible by their effects: divine mercy, love, compassion, faith, meekness, and justice “ James M. Kushiner, The Fellowship of St. James –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 GREETERS, READERS, VIDEO OPERATORS, OFFICE HELPERS.   Second Quarter schedules are in your mailbox.  Please note that April 14th will be a Unity Sunday with only one service at 10:00 am.  Easter Sunday is April 21st and our regular 8:00 am service will be at 7:00 am. 

THANK YOU to Diane Williams who made some lovely new floral arrangements for our narthex area. The outreach team is looking at ways we can do a bit of a refresh in our foyer/narthex space to make it more welcoming and useful. Stay tuned!
DIGITAL NEWS AND NOTES  Holy Trinity is trying to cut back on the amount of printing that we do every week and you can help!

Additionally, if you would like a copy emailed to you for your viewing convenience, send an email to office@holytrin.org asking to be placed on the email list for News and Notes.  Please include your email address in the body of your email.  Yes, it comes through in the address line, but it is much easier for us to copy it from the body of the email.  Thank you for your help!

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH

My body, my choice? We don’t have to settle for so little. Each human body belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20-21)! He paid by dying and rising to make it His twice over. He is perfecting it after the pattern of His own glorified body. Even on earth and amid adversity, He declares and demonstrates His heavenly kingdom through our bodies. My body, God’s gift! His bidding, my delight!  (Lent II)

 LIFE QUOTES  To be pro-life is to show that all life is precious, that the community of faith is there to support and help with every child. To be pro-life is to visit the elderly in the nursing home, to give them the dignity that they have as children of God. To be pro-life is to love the mothers, to love these women who are caught by circumstances, to help them with physical as well as spiritual needs.” Rev. Christopher Maronde, pastor of Saint John Lutheran Church, Decatur, Indiana –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 2019 DIRECTORY copies are available on the Giving Table in the Narthex.  Please help yourself.

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION BREAKFAST  Our church is full of people who volunteer their time to the benefit of the church and God’s ministry. Some run our screens or sound board, others teach our children, young people, or adults. Some stuff bulletins every week and others keep the building in repair. The list can go on and on.

 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCHSatan goaded Jesus to produce physical proof of His identity and importance (Luke 4:3). But God’s promise and power entitled Him to life even in the absence of bread (Luke 4:4). The evil one still insists we gauge a person by material measures. Thanks to our Savior, no one’s age, appearance, or ability can impair or improve their sanctity. God’s creating, redeeming, and calling Word already renders every human being precious.  (Lent 1)

 LIFE QUOTES  People with disabilities and their families have much to offer the Body of Christ, but often the Church sees them as needy—as a mercy ministry—not as valued contributing members. Look for ways for each of them to serve, including the person with disability.” Mona Fuerstenau, Bethesda Lutheran Communities –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 2019 DIRECTORY copies are available on the Giving Table in the Narthex.  Please help yourself.

 PUBLICATIONS  News & Notes, Clarion, and Bulletin inserts are all published to keep you informed of things going on at Holy Trinity.  Therefore it is your publication and you need to contribute to it.  The deadline for News & Notes is Wednesday at noon.  Clarion deadline is the 15th of the month.  You may drop off articles in the office, or email them to elaine@holytrin.org.  Email sent to the office often gets buried in the more commercial notices and get overlooked.  We hate when that happens.

 LUTHERAN HOUR MINISTRIES This Sunday is LHM Sunday. They have started an incredible initiative to reach those who haven’t heard the Gospel and those who maybe need to hear it from another source. This program is called SENT. It is based on the premise that God has sent each and every Christian to proclaim the Gospel. In order to do this, they are asking for help. There will be a short video towards the end of service with details and our ushers have a handout with more info on this impressive program. Inside there are more details and ways that you can help along with a mail ready envelope if you are ready to help.   You can go to lhm.org to see more of what they do.

GREETERS, READERS, VIDEO OPERATORS, OFFICE HELPERS.  Lent schedules are available in your Narthex mailbox.  We are now putting together the second quarter schedules.  Please let me know if there is a date in April, May, and June that you cannot serve.  April 14th will be a Unity Sunday with only one service at 10:00 am.  Easter Sunday is April 21st and our regular 8:00 am service will be at 7:00 am. 

   Thanks, Elaine (elaine@holytrin.org)

DIGITAL NEWS AND NOTES  Holy Trinity is trying to cut back on the amount of printing that we do every week and you can help! For starters, at some point in the future we will be cutting back on the number of News & Notes we print. Don’t worry, you will still be able to get a physical copy on Sunday if you want one. However, if you prefer a digital copy, you can always go to holytrin.org/newsandnotes to view it there. Additionally, if you would like a copy emailed to you for your viewing convenience, send an email to office@holytrin.org asking to be placed on the email list for News and Notes. Thank you for your help!

 CANIDATE QUESTIONS The Call Committee will soon be interviewing potential candidates for resident pastor of Holy Trinity and they would like your input. You will find an insert to this News and Notes with an update on the process and places for your questions. Please fill in any questions you would like asked and return to a call committee member by Sunday, March 17th.
