LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH.  Among motherhood’s greatest works is comforting distraught little ones. Where the world would wipe out lives by murder, the Lamb once slain but raised again mothers us by wiping away our tears (Revelation 7:17). Heavenly Father’s forgiveness and salvation heal even the guilt of abortion, the grief of terminal diagnosis, and the fear of complicated pregnancy. The Hand that rules the world also rocks the cradle. (Easter IV/Mother’s Day)

 LIFE QUOTES  “[I]t does not say that the honoring, serving, and obeying one’s parents is conditional or in response to their earning or deserving it. No, one is to love and cherish them as well as honoring, serving, and obeying them as if they were God Himself … The good news is that where we have obviously failed, Jesus did not. He not only honored His step-father Joseph and his mother Mary, but also His heavenly Father. He offers you His payment for your sin and a place in God’s family, now and forever.” 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:

VOLUNTEERS ARE STILL NEEDED on Monday, May 13. Holy Trinity will be one of the Food Pantry's that will reap some of the benefits of the Post Office Carriers food drive. We still need volunteers to help check for expiration dates, sort, and store the food. Please sign up in Narthex or call the office.

 OUTREACH MINISTRY TEAM  A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped provide a chili dinner for the families utilizing the Ronald McDonald House at Mercy Hospital in Rogers.  Volunteers included:  Jan Wildenborg, Shirley Bernthal, Donna Spencer, Libby Garner, Joyce Bauer, Gerri Jennings, and the Bolte family.  It was a huge success!  The staff at the Ronald McDonald House sent the following email after the dinner:

Hello Casey and Church friends!  Thank you again for providing dinner tonight!  I enjoyed getting to meet you and your family, and I wanted to let you know that after you left, the chili was soon devoured!  Family and friends gathered around the dining table to consume your yummy chili dinner, and it was such a nice sight to see.   We appreciate the time and care you spent to provide a delicious meal for our families, and we know the families greatly appreciate it too.  Please send our gratitude to the rest of your church family.

                            Thank you once more – Ronald McDonald Family Room Staff

While we were dropping off the meal, the staff mentioned there several openings to provide meals in the coming months.  If you are interested in providing a dinner on your own or with a small group of friends, please visit to sign up.  If you need help signing up, please contact Casey Bolte at 479.644.3618    

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. 

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME 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!!
