LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.
Abortion advocates sometimes claim the Scriptures are silent about the practice. However, the Greek term for the “sorcerers” condemned in Revelation 22:15 also refers to those who prepared abortifacients. On the other hand, every story entrusted to the Lord of Life ends beautifully (Revelation 22:1-5)—even if it involves a surprise pregnancy or a terminal diagnosis. (Easter VII)
LIFE QUOTES “Instead of dreaming of what your spouse will do for you, you should ask yourself, are you willing to serve him or her sacrificially? To paraphrase John F. Kennedy: Ask not what your spouse can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your spouse.” Pastor Ricky Jacob, Jesus Our Savior Lutheran Church and preschool, Winnebago –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org
IT’S NOT TOO LATE! If you pick up a baby bottle TODAY, you will have TWO weeks to fill it with spare change (or a check) before it’s due back to church on Father’s Day (June 16th). All money collected in the baby bottles goes to Loving Choices – a local pregnancy center. If you have any questions about the Baby Bottle campaign, please see a member of the Outreach Ministry Team.
THANK YOU! Thank you to EVERYONE (Dave & Wendie Ferguson, Dave & Christy Lehenbauer, Evan Wright, Shirley Bernthal, Karen Launderville, and Ray Eschenburg) who volunteered at Helping Hands in Bentonville last Saturday! The help was MUCH appreciated! Can’t handle the four-hour shifts? Consider shift splitting. Two of our volunteers did this on Saturday and really enjoyed it! If you are interested in volunteering, or have questions about this, please contact Dave Ferguson or a member of the Outreach Ministry Team.
IT’S A WIN!! The Arkansas Naturals won the ballgame in the 9th inning Tuesday night! Thank you to all who attended Lutheran Night at Arvest Ballpark on the 28th. The weather was FANTASTIC and the game was a thrill to watch! A special thank you to Matt Bolte who drove the church van to and from the game so a few church members and Soul’s Harbor men could attend. A BIG thank you to Matt Bolte and the Outreach Ministry Team for the FREE tickets!! Check out our Facebook page for pictures of the evening. We hope to make this an annual event.
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 holytrin.org/youth or email firstname.lastname@example.org
NYG PREPARE The NYG is an amazing experience, as long as you can get to all the things to see. To help get ready, the Youth Ministry Team is leading an NYG Prepare event at Lake Atalanta June 9th from 12:30-2:30. All are welcome to join us as we walk around the lake, enjoy a lunch, and have a small Bible study.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Laurie Martin is still looking for 4 volunteers to help with steam cleaning the pews in the Sanctuary. Laurie is hoping to get this done in late June, or early July. Doing the cleaning in-house will result in a significant savings. The last time this was done, it was contracted out for $1,200.
YEEHAW VBS The education team is changing things up a bit this year with our VBS. Instead of a 5-day program, we opted for a 2-day weekend event to set Holy Trinity apart from the many other VBS programs in our area. It will go from July 27th & 28th from 5pm-8pm. A free meal will be provided from 5-5:30pm with the program starting at 5:30pm. We will need a lot of help with this ministry so please talk to Cameron if you are interested!
FAITH & FILM The Ed Team is putting together a family film night once each month for the summer. The first movie will be on June 23rd at 5:00pm in the chapel and we will be watching Find Nemo and talking about how our Father relentlessly comes after us when we are lost.
