 FEED MY SHEEP  Going for groceries this week?  Remember to pick up something extra for our Food Pantry.  Bring it with you next Sunday and add it to the pantry wagon in the Narthex.  Many of your neighbors depend on this food to get them through the emergencies that life sometimes throws at us.  Your neighbors are beyond grateful for the help they receive from you.

 CONFIRMATION SUNDAY  Is next Sunday, May 5th. Three of our young people are being confirmed. Ellie Griffin, Reanna Dunlap, and Ethan Leech.

After there will be a reception in the Life Center.

“Young men and maidens together, old men and children! Let them praise the name of the Lord[!]” (Psalm 148:12-13). Every life—however little, however weak, however seemingly miserable—has been brought forth by our good God for joyful purpose. He takes hold of even the most hopeless-looking situations (Revelation 1:18) to show—and share—His abundant, everlasting life (John 20:27). Behold it, believe it, and receive it!  (Easter II)

 LIFE QUOTES  “Death is the enemy of the human race—an enemy no one can fight or avoid forever. But God has done a new thing—He has raised Jesus Christ from the dead, never to die again. What other god has done anything like that in all the stories and fables? But wait, there’s more. What god has ever promised to share everlasting life with everyone who trusts in Him? Only the true God. Only Jesus.” Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries–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.

GOOD NEWS REGARDING THE FOOD PANTRY  Krista Malone, our dedicated Office Assistant suffered a fall which resulted in a broken leg.  Krista’s continues to heal and has decided to return to work beginning Monday (at least for a few hours per day).  In my opinion, Krista will still need some volunteer help on Monday, 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.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.  There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.

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.
