STUCK IN THE SEQUEL EVENT FOR YOUTH Will be happening this Saturday the 11th from 9am-9pm. Last year Jesse Carey, a writer and podcaster for Relevant magazine, watched Nicolas Cage movies for 24 hours straight, all for charity. This year Holy Trinity Youth up the ante to support SNACK PACK, a program of Samaritan Center. While Cage movies is impressive we are going to face a real challenge; direct to home Disney sequels for 12 straight hours. You can support us by checking out the Church website for a link to our live stream of the event and donate to the charity, you can stop in and encourage us as we suffer through and maybe watch some with us; and you can donate on Sundays throught the plate. Snack pack provides food to children who get very little food over the weekend. Help us support this great ministry.   

ADDITIONAL READERSAND VIDEO VOLUNTEERS NEEDED  For Sunday Services. We need help with reading in the 8:00am services and video help in both services. If you are interested please contact the Church office. Thank you for your considering to help out.

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.


God’s Math

The best mathematical equation I have ever seen:  1 cross + 3 nails = 4 given

That’s the whole gospel message simply stated.


This is written for our comfort, that we may know that many angels minister also to us, where one devil attacks us; if we fight with a knightly spirit and firmly stand, God will not let us suffer want, the angels of heaven would sooner appear and be our bakers, waiters, and cooks and minister to all wants(Church Postils, invocabit)
