My body, my choice? We don’t have to settle for so little. Each human body belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20-21)! He paid by dying and rising to make it His twice over. He is perfecting it after the pattern of His own glorified body. Even on earth and amid adversity, He declares and demonstrates His heavenly kingdom through our bodies. My body, God’s gift! His bidding, my delight!  (Lent II)

 LIFE QUOTES  To be pro-life is to show that all life is precious, that the community of faith is there to support and help with every child. To be pro-life is to visit the elderly in the nursing home, to give them the dignity that they have as children of God. To be pro-life is to love the mothers, to love these women who are caught by circumstances, to help them with physical as well as spiritual needs.” Rev. Christopher Maronde, pastor of Saint John Lutheran Church, Decatur, Indiana –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website:

 2019 DIRECTORY copies are available on the Giving Table in the Narthex.  Please help yourself.

DIGITAL NEWS AND NOTES  Holy Trinity is trying to cut back on the amount of printing that we do every week and you can help! Beginning this week, we will be cutting back on the number of News & Notes we print. Don’t worry, you will still be able to get a physical copy on Sunday if you want one.   Printed copies are available on the giving table in the Narthex.  However, if you prefer a digital copy, you can always go to to view it there. Additionally, if you would like a copy emailed to you for your viewing convenience, send an email to asking to be placed on the email list for News and Notes.  Please include your email address in the body of your email.  Yes, it comes through in the address line, but it is much easier for us to copy it from the body of the email.  Thank you for your help!

VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION BREAKFAST  Our church is full of people who volunteer their time to the benefit of the church and God’s ministry. Some run our screens or sound board, others teach our children, young people, or adults. Some stuff bulletins every week and others keep the building in repair. The list can go on and on. If you are one of these awesome people, you are invited to breakfast, put on by the Elders and Journeymen, between services today to show that we notice the work you do and we appreciate it.
