For it is the great characteristic and power of faith to see what is not visible, and to not see what is visible. Therefore God bestows faith to the end that it should deal not with ordinary things, but with things no human being can master, as death, as sin, the world, and Satan.  (Church Postils, Ephihany 4)

ALTAR FLOWERS  There are still several Sundays open if you would like to sponsor flowers for our altar.  The cost is $60 for both bouquets or $ 30 for one.  This cost includes tax. Please sign up on the flower chart in the hallway near the restrooms.  We then ask you to put the money in the offering – marking it “altar flowers.”

MISSION U  Has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 11th at Holy Trinity from 9:00am-2:00pm.  This free seminar is entitled “’Equipping To Share: Tough Questions.”  Participants will learn how to classify, identify, and get to the root of tough questions and objections to Christianity, and practice giving sensitive and relevant answers that point to the Savior, suing messages of “Law” and “Gospel” as appropriate.  Lunch will be provided. Childcare is available with prior arrangement.  Call the Church office to register or sign up on the bulletin board in the Narthex.  In order to get lunches ordered, we ask that you contact the Church office no later than Tuesday, February 7th.


SR. HIGH linkT RETREAT Will be held February 10th-12th @ Camp Petit Jean. It is going to be an awesome Jesus filled weekend. Weekend speaker will be Dr. Jacob Youman and the theme will be “CREATE”. (Ephesians 2:10) Please pray for all those attending.


LIFE QUOTES  “Our unyielding belief that ‘every single life matters’ means that pro-lifers are immune to the eugenics temptation which rears its ugly head in many guises and which is always on the prowl for more victims. Why do you matter, I matter, we all matter ? Just….because…we…are.”

Dave Andrusko, National Right to Life-A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life- If you want to support this ministry, you may do so through their web site: www.lutheransforlife.org

HELPING HANDS February 18th is our next scheduled date for Holy Trinity to volunteer at Helping Hands. If you can help out the sign up sheet is posted on the bulletin board in the Narthex.



+ + + IN MEMORIAM + + +


Robert (Bob) Walter Beck was born on April 22, 1930 to Walter and Edith Beck in Hinton, Iowa.  He was reborn through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism on June 8 of the same year at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hinton.  He reaffirmed his Christian faith through the Rite of Confirmation at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Sioux City, Iowa on December 14, 1952.  On November 22, 1960, he was united to Eva Jean LaSeur in Holy Matrimony at Berdesford, South Dakota.   Bob worked as a machinist for Bystrom Brothers in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  After 37 cold winters in Minnesota, he retired and brought his bride to their dream home in Garfield, Arkansas.  He was an active member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and a member of FOE.  Upon retirement he enjoyed sharing his train set with great-grandchildren creating things from wood and clothespins.  Bob loved animals and spent evenings enjoying the hummingbirds and feeding “Foxy” off the back deck.  He always had a joke ready to make you laugh.  His love for family and friends will be cherished and missed.  Bob Beck died on January 20, 2017 at the Circle of Life Hospice Home in Bentonville, Arkansas at the age of 86 years, 8 months, and 29 days.   He was preceded in death by his parents, by his sister Dolores, and by his brothers Ronald and Larry.   He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Eva Jean of Garfield; by his son Ed and his wife Anne; by his grandchildren, Zachariah and his wife Vanessa, Yancey and his wife Michelle, Amy, Ashley and her husband Josh; and by nine great-grandchildren, Lucy, Franky, Theresa, Owen, Bryce, Noah, Jackson and Sarah.  His body was laid to rest in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection of the body and life everlasting this last Monday at Benton Country Memorial Park in Rogers.
