Pastor Bernthal’s Bible Class

WORK DAY COMING  Mark your calendars and plan to join us on April 1.  The Journeymen and Trustees are joining forces for a work day here at the church.  There are many jobs including landscape work and painting.  Lunch will be provided.

CONNECTIONS CLASS   Pastor Besel is considering starting a new Connections Class next Sunday, March 26.  The class will meet on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour (9:30-10:30) .  The class will meet in Classroom 1 B.  The class is for people who want to join Holy Trinity, or as an orientation class for new members, or for people who want to review the basics of our Christian faith.  If you are interested in this class, please sign up on the bulletin board in the hall by Pastor’s office.   There are extra copies of the flyer and tentative class schedule for those interested.


From this it follows that where the finger of God does not cast out the devil, there the devil’s kingdom still exists; where Satan’s kingdom still exists, there the kingdom of God cannot be. The unaviodable conclusion then is that, as long as the Holy Spirit does not enter our hearts, we are not only incapable of any good, but are of necessity in the kingdom of Satan.

(Church Postils, Uculi)


“It has been estimated that 99% of the things you worry about never happen.  And most of the things that do happen, happen so quickly that you never have time to worry about them in the first place.”  - Brian Tracy


“God loves each of us as if there was only one of us. “      - St. Augustine

TRIP TO ISRAEL   Have you had the desire to go to the Holy Land? A trip is being put together by Pam Pickett to go to Israel! The details are not all set but we will be going March 20th-29th, 2018 for 9 days plus/minus travel days.  I am in the planning stages so the exact itinerary is not set but all of the major sites will be included. I know the first question you will have is, what is the cost?  An estimate at this time is $3,500 per person.  This will include, airfare, ground transportation, hotels (4 star hotels), food, site fees, tips – everything except travel insurance and personal shopping purchases.  If this number changes it will go down, not up.  For example, the larger the group the cheaper the price.   If you are interested in going on the trip please let me know.  I am gathering a list of people who have interest in order to work with the tour company to finalize prices.  I would like to keep this to about 20 people.   This will be a teaching tour, at each site we will tie in everything we see to the Bible.  My goal is to deepen your personal relationship with God, by coming closer through the land and people of Israel.   Thank you, Pam Pickett pamsue27@gmail.com479-601-2550.

LIFE QUOTES  “You might think you’ve made mistakes that can’t be forgiven, you’ve been broken beyond repair, you’ve been lost in the eyes of the world. But God has loved you so deeply that He created you, He redeemed you, and He called you to new life through that same Holy One of Israel. Live this new life of faith to the glory of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit today and forever. Amen.”   *Rev. Paul J. Frank, Hosanna Lutheran Church and School, Mesa, Arizona –  If you want to support this ministry, you may do so through their web site:

Redeemed Through Jesus Christ


He leadeth me – He leadeth me,

A long lost sheep I used to be.


He took me in with such gentle care

Life’s door is openI enter there.


Glory to God for making the way

Salvation is mine, no debt to pay.


Praise Him – Praise Him, I say the most,

Praise Father, Praise Son, Praise Holy Ghost.
