BIBLE STUDY – CLASSROOM 1  Are you involved in a Bible study class?  If not, we would love to have you join us in Classroom 1 where we are taking a verse by verse look at the book of Joshua.  Think the Old Testament is boring?  That it’s not relevant?  Oh no my friend, just the opposite.  Wars, miracles, lessons in prayer life – all at the same time!  We begin at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings, hope to see you there.

Life issues such as infertility, surprise pregnancy, or terminal diagnosis can loom like six stone jars (John 2:6). They remind us of our imperfections and our need for cleansing. As at Cana, Jesus still compassionately intervenes. He makes life issues speak instead the sweetness of His miraculous but mysterious salvation from the shadows of death. Let us delight to proclaim it lest the stones shame us by their crying out.

LIFE QUOTES  “Sixty million unborn children have died as a result of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions. However, through the right-to-life movement’s deter-mination to protect mothers and their children, we continue to see evidence that our efforts to educate America about the unborn child’s humanity, and our efforts to enact protective pro-life legislation, are having a tremens-dous impact in moving our nation away from Roe’s and Doe’s deadly legacy.” Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life --If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

HELPING HANDS  Holy Trinity is scheduled to assist at Helping Hands on January 26, 2019.  The signup sheet has been posted in the Narthex.  We still need some volunteers for the afternoon.  Please help.
