Death never comes as a friend. Death always arrives as enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26). It doesn’t offer a gentle and effective solution to distress but instead imposes ultimately greater suffering and difficulty. Attempting treaties with death delivers only captivity rather than the control it advertises. Christ Jesus, crucified and risen for our well-being, exercises authority over how we live and when we die so that we don’t have to bear the burden. (Epiphany VII)


LIFE QUOTES  And what about those mothers who acted on their fears and aborted their child? We need to be there for them as well, assuring them of a loving, merciful, forgiving God—reminding them that there is no sin that Jesus did not pay for on the cross!” Duane Matz, former lay pastor with the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC) and Christian radio announcer. (For those who have made an abortion decision, there is a Word of Hope, Lutherans For Life’s post-abortion healing ministry. Call 888.217.8679 or email info@word-of-hope.org.) If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

THRIVENT CHOICE DOLLARS - It's that time of year again!  2018 Thrivent Choice Dollars expire on March 31, 2019 so it's time for Thrivent Financial Benefit Members to direct their Thrivent Choice Dollars!!   It's easy and fast to do - simply logon to www.thrivent.com or call 1-800-THRIVENT.  There are several great charities including OUR church that are eligible to receive Thrivent Choice Dollar funds.  If you have any questions or need assistance, please call Steven Schmitt's office at 479.631.8239 or Matthew Taylor's office at 479.631.6633.  

 SCREEN JUNKY? Can you press a button? Then you are qualified to help run the screens on Sunday mornings! Congrats! It has never been easier to be a part of our Sunday morning worship and help others in their worship. Also, if you are feeling a little creative, we need a few people to help create the service in our new program. This program is super intuitive and easy to use. Cameron has it set up to be very straight forward and would be happy to do a little training. If you are interested in learning more, talk to Cameron!

PUBLICATIONS  News & Notes, Clarion, and Bulletin inserts are all published to keep you informed of things going on at Holy Trinity.  Therefore it is your publication and you need to contribute to it.  The deadline for News & Notes is Wednesday at noon.  Clarion deadline is the 15th of the month.  You may drop off articles in the office, or email them to elaine@holytrin.org.  Email sent to the office often gets buried in the more commercial notices and get overlooked.  We hate when that happens.

PINOCHLE CARDS  The March calendar shows that the first Friday in March is the 1st so we will be playing cards this week.  Set up will be at 6 pm with card playing starting at 6:30.  Hope to see most of youand if anyone is interested in joining up, please come on out.  We’d love to have you join us.

CHAPEL CONSTRUCTION The new ceiling is finally finished and the clutter cleaned out. Big shout out to Dave Smith and Bob Bauer, our Trustees, who have been hard at work doing a remodel on the ceiling in the chapel and it turned out amazing. This has been the next step to new and exciting ministries in that wonderful space.

 LITTLE DISCIPLES Christ’s final command was to make disciples of all nations. Quite the tall order. Not all of us have the fortitude to Billy Graham all over the world. Fortunately, there are disciples to be made right here in our church, they are just shorter than you might think. Children are always learning and growing which makes this time a great time to teach them of the love of God. We just need people to teach them and right now, we are running a little short (get it!) in that department.  Talk to Cameron if you have any questions.
