Vacation Bible School is an incredible ministry here at Holy Trinity. Last year we had 50 children at our VBS, with well over half not being members of this Church. VBS is a tremendous way to reach out into our community and reach some people with the Gospel. In order to do this, we need your help. Each position is pivotal in making our VBS the best it can be from Crew Leaders to Snack Makers. Please visit our table in the Narthex, check out some of the positions that are open and speak to Cameron, Cathy, or Eric about being a volunteer and helping us reach out into our community.



For Christ had been crucified, had destroyed sin and death by his death, had risen from the dead, the Holy Spirit had been given, and in short, all things pertaining to this supper were now ready. It all was so prepared that it did not cost us anything; for the Father through Christ bore all its expenses, in order that we without our merit and assistance might enjoy his treasures, and become rich abnd prosperous.  (Church Postils, Trinity 2)

LIFE QUOTES “There is a logical slippery slope between euthanasia for adults and children. If death is regarded as a ‘benefit’ for sick or depressed adults, then it is difficult to see why children should not be given this ‘benefit’ as well. Euthanasia and assisted suicide are contrary to the ethos of medicine, which is to care, not kill. We must ensure that treatment is only withdrawn from patients of any age and for a good medical reason. The motive for withdrawing treatment should never be to end a life.”

There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country.  “Is there anything breakable in here?” asked the postal clerk.  “Only the Ten Commandments,” answered the lady.
