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

Sunday

9:30 A.M. Pam Pickett leads a study of Ruth.

9:30 A.M Libby Garner leads a Beth Moore study for women in the Conference Room.

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
