 2019 DIRECTORY  Our work is well underway on the new directory.  Do any of you have Member Owned Businesses you would like to have listed in the Directory?  (Yes, I promise to include them this year.)  If you have a business that was previously listed, you have been contacted via e-mail or phone about the accuracy of the ad.  We are looking for any new ventures that you may have started and want to let the Congregation know about.  Also, it is not too late to turn in a database update.  Please contact the office.

 JOURNEYMEN AND OUTREACH - Included in your bulletin this week is a tri-fold brochure for Sleep in Heavenly Peace.  Our Journeymen men's group and the Outreach Ministry Team have partnered with Sleep in Heavenly Peace - Bentonville to host a Bunk Bed Build here at Holy Trinity!  On Saturday, February 23rd (10am - 2pm) we will build 5 bunks (10 beds) for children who are currently sleeping on the floor right here in Northwest Arkansas!  We need approximately 15 volunteers to help with this opportunity!  No experience is necessary as Sleep in Heavenly Peace provides the supplies, tools, and guidance.  Please sign up on the sheet on the bulletin board in the Narthex if you are willing to help.  Lunch will be provided to all volunteers after the Build.  If you have any questions, please contact Dave Lehenbauer (479.273.0213) or Casey Bolte (479.644.3618).

Our fear of our own unclean lips (Isaiah 6:5) and slow tongues can make us mute about marginalized lives. That’s why the merciful Maker has touched our tongues (Isaiah 6:7) with His transformative Word and placed His life-giving power upon our lips. We need not doubt that even out of our mouths the Spirit of our Father speaks a wisdom no adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.  (Epiphany V)

LIFE QUOTES  “[T]here’s more … more to life than sensual pleasures, more to love than the shriveled-up version that has captivated our Western imagi-nations. So today, ask yourself, ‘How am I responding to so great an expression of love as what God has shown us?’ Valentinus’s response was to give up his own life. For us, too, a kind of ‘death’ is required—a death to self, a death to the desires that our culture treats as ultimate. Now of course, guys, none of this lets you off the hook with your wives. So don’t forget the flowers.”  John Stonestreet with Roberto Rivera, www.breakpoint.org. If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

CAMP TRINITY  Summer camp registration is in full swing at Camp Trinity, the Lutheran Camp on Petit Jean Mountain, with the number of campers registered well ahead of previous years’ pace. Families are encouraged to register early to ensure a spot for their children.

Eight sessions are scheduled for the 2019 season. In addition to traditional camp sessions for students from 2nd through 12th grade, the calendar includes the following four special sessions:

Adventure Camp (June 16-21), which takes high school students off the mountain for a Buffalo River float trip, overnight camping and rock climbing or rappelling.

Arts Camp (July 14-19), a joint venture of Camp Trinity and the Little Rock School of the Arts, a ministry of Christ, Little Rock. Campers in this session, divided between grades 5-8 and grades 9-12, will explore visual arts, performing arts, and literary arts.

Overcomers Camp (July 21-25), where youth (grade 6 and above) will be able to take part in outdoor activities with extra time and assistance as needed.

Family Camp, a short session where children will enjoy camp activities with their parents and grandparents. Family Camp has been moved to a weekend (July 26-28) to make it more convenient for working parents to participate.
