A surprise pregnancy or an incurable condition can leave us feeling like we have to make friends with death just to keep from suffering alone. But God goes with us as our Savior and Father even into death’s domain (Psalm 16:10). And He never escorts us there without also carrying us through it (Psalm 16:11). We don’t have to surrender a single breath, because every Good Friday finds its Easter Sunday in Jesus!

 EASTER BREAKFAST join us for breakfast in the Life Center starting at 8:15a. All proceeds go to support our youth and their trip to the National Youth Gathering

 LIFE QUOTES  “When the devil speaks, do not believe the lies. Whether your life be young or old, the deceit of death will enter it. You will walk by caskets. You will lie in a hospital bed. You will hear the devil speak in his native language. His lies will come to you just as they did to me. See through his faulty speech. Recognize his broken narrative. Deny every phony word. Christ calls you a Christian, and the devil’s language holds no truth. When the deceit of death enters your life, listen to the truth Christ speaks on this day … ‘He will speak again. You will visit family again. She will greet you again. Christ will rise again.’” Rev. Paul Spaude, Martin Luther College  –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

 APRIL IS TORNADO AND SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS MONTH  As part of a four-part Emergency Plan Series, the Holy Trinity Safety Team has designated April as Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness month. During this period, members of the congregation will be briefed on what to do during a weather emergency and will be provided instructions on the location of the designated tornado shelter area in the church. Instructional brochures will be provided for each family.

 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE FOOD PANTRY  Krista Malone, our dedicated Office Assistant suffered a fall which resulted in a broken leg.  Krista’s orthopedic doctor reports that surgery will not be necessary, however it will be necessary for her to keep the leg immobilized in order for it to heal.  In order for the Food Pantry to remain open at our current level, we need volunteers for Thursday, and Friday from Noon to 4 pm and on Tuesday from 9 am to 1 pm. You do not need to stay for the full 4 hours.  Any block of time will be helpful.  Times that we cannot find a volunteer to staff the pantry will mean closing our doors.  We have place a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.

 HELPING HANDS - Saturday, May 25th is the next volunteer event for Holy Trinity to support Helping Hands. This faith-based organization provides food for around 100 families each week and needs our help to run their store. If you can spare a few hours of time, you will be supporting a great cause and getting an extra discount on merchandise at the same time! Please sign up in the Narthex or see Dave Ferguson. 

VISIT ISRAEL  Have you ever considered visiting the Holy Land?  I know that every person who has done so would encourage you to pray about it and to go.  In fact I can point out several people in our congregation who have been and can tell you all about it.  Why go?  It will deepen your faith in ways you cannot imagine.  When you read the Bible and it talks about places you can say I’ve been there.  You will be able to relate and understand in a new way.  I am leading another group to Israel January 15th – 26th, 2020.  An information packet is on the bulletin board in the Narthex or just contact me and I’ll be glad to give you a copy.  Pam Pickett 479-601-2550 pamsue27@gmail.com

 RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE MEAL   Saturday May 4th, we will once again be serving a meal to the families of people staying overnight at the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital.  These parents are staying overnight due to serious illnesses to their children in the hospital.  We can show Jesus’ love to the parents and children by providing this meal.  The sign-up for this is on the bulletin board.
