 LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH. Even the one whose faculties are declining and whose dying appears undignified shines in the light of God’s love and power (John 21:18-19). Jesus who rose, reigns, and is returning smuggles blessings in every burden. His gracious guidance speedily and mightily conducts dances out of dirges (Psalm 30:11). And He extends this compassion to every human being without exception (Revelation 5:9)!  (Easter III)

LIFE QUOTES  “Whoa. What a cool thought! Before your parents ever laid eyes on you before they fought over whether to name you John Jr. or Steven, God knew your name and He wanted you as his. In fact, it goes back further than you think. Before God even created the very first parents, He knew you were coming someday and He chose you, specifically you, for his team.” Diane Kerr, Time of Grace –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website:

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

POST OFFICE ANNUAL LETTER CARRIERS FOOD DRIVE  Please tell everyone you know that on Saturday, May 11th, there will be the Rogers Post Office's Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. This year they need help getting the word out by social media or by word of mouth. To participate in the food drive just leave a bag of food by your mail box on Saturday, May 11th.

On Monday, May 13th, Holy Trinity will be one of the Food Pantry's that will reap some of the benefits of this drive. We will need a volunteer driver with a pick up truck (and at least one volunteer helper) to go to the post office on Monday, May 13th after 9 A.M. to pick up a truck load of food. As we have done in the last couple of years we will need approximately 10 volunteers to help check for expiration dates, sort, and store the food. Please call the office, or email Elaine ( or Krista ( if you are willing and able to help with this important project. Thank you ~ Krista Malone~

THANK YOU  I would like to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers, Get Well Cards & gift card. I am happy to be back to work serving the Lord and sharing God's love to others.  I also want to thank Joyce Bauer, Christy Lehenbauer, and Pat Rader, and anyone else that I don't know of, that helped out in the office while I was off work. You are appreciated! Thank you so much. ~ Krista Malone~

LOVING CHOICES BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN:  This is an annual community-wide fundraiser for Loving Choices.  Our church has participated for the past several years and it fits well with this year’s Outreach focus of children and local charities.  Be sure to pick up a baby bottle in the Narthex on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12th) and fill it with spare change, cash, or a check and return it by Father’s Day (Sunday, June 16).
