Please join us in praying for and welcoming Pastor Longman to Holy Trinity.

FEED MY SHEEP is next Sunday, June 2nd. We invite you to bring some food along for the Pantry when you come to church or to make a financial contribution so food can be purchased from the food bank.  We thank you for supporting this ministry of our congregation to the people of our community.

BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN  Please be sure to pick up a baby bottle from the table in the Narthex on your way out of church today.  Fill the bottle with spare change (or a check) and return it to church on Father’s Day.  This is part of the annual Baby Bottle Campaign put on by Loving Choices.  The Outreach Ministry Team had a chance to tour the facility in April and were VERY impressed by what they have to offer.  Loving Choices supports families from “I think I might be pregnant” to 9 months after delivery!  They even have a mobile van (with an ultrasound machine inside) that parks in various locations throughout Northwest Arkansas including the parking lot across from Planned Parenthood in Fayetteville. 

 GREETERS, READERS, VIDEO OPERATORS, OFFICE HELPERS, COUNTERS We are looking ahead to third quarter scheduling.  If you have vacations or other obligations planned during July, August, and September please let us know.  We will not schedule you at times you specify.  Thanks for looking ahead and for all you do.

LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  Speaking and acting as Gospel-motivated voices for life sometimes meets with frustration and discouragement. Nevertheless, what we call our failures God calls His patience. The sanctity of life is not our project but His holy truth and will. The courageous and compassionate proclamation of it cannot fail to bring forth fruit, however small or slow (Acts 16:13-15). Take heart—He who has overcome the world abides in this cause (John 16:33). (Easter VI)

LIFE QUOTES  “Ascension Day, a holy day falling inconspicuously on a Thursday in May, is the conspicuous declaration that we are not left as orphans. In the same post-resurrection body that He invited Thomas to touch, Jesus invites us to full humanity even today. He ascended with a body, He shares in our humanity, extending His own body even now, promising to return for our own bodies. Christ is preparing a room for us, and we can know it is real because He himself is real.” Jill Carattini, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website:

 LCMS NATIONAL OFFERING On June 9th we will join with LCMS churches across the nation in taking a special offering to support the LCMS and their mission to spread God’s word to the world.

 YOUTH SUMMER MIX ACTIVITIES Summer is upon us and school is finished for the semester. So it is time to kick back and have some fun! We have many different activites scheduled for our youth this summer and it starts with a BBQ at the Pullmann house on June 5th from 5-7pm. We will be posting in the News and Notes as we draw closer to events. For a full list of events, head to or email

 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED  Laurie Martin is looking for 4 volunteers to help with steam cleaning the pews in the Sanctuary.  This can be done at the volunteers convenience, but every-thing needs time to dry, so optimally, this should occur in the first part of the week. Doing the cleaning in-house will result in a significant savings.  The last time this was done, it was contracted out for $1,200

 Don’t miss an amazing opportunity to attend Lutheran Night at Arvest Ballpark on TUESDAY, MAY 28TH.  The signup sheet is on the bulletin board in the Narthex.  We met the minimum ticket sales needed to get the discounted rate!  AND, Matt Bolte has generously used a Thrivent Action Team to support this Outreach event, therefore the first 40 tickets are FREE!  Thanks Matt!!  We also plan to provide 10 free tickets to Souls Harbor so they can join us – what a tremendous opportunity to show the men that Holy Trinity loves them and supports their efforts!!
