Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

Blessings to you during this seventh week of the Trinity Season. The text we’re examining on Sundays, Ephesians 1:3-14, paints a gorgeous picture of our salvation as a multifaceted triune event, in which the Father, Son and Spirit join together to lavish on us every blessing needed to live in vibrant community with Him and each other. Last week, we considered verses 7 and 8, where our redemption and forgiveness in Christ are highlighted. If you missed the service, you can watch the recording here. The message, outline and notes are found here.

This Sunday, we will examine verses 9-12 which focus on God’s ultimate purpose in summing up all history and creation in Christ and the unique role that we play in God’s plan and heart. For you note takers, be sure to check our website before the service to download an outline of the message. To join our 4pm service this Sunday, click here or on our website. As always, check into the Zoom chat room a little early to say your “Hellos” and get settled. Remember to bring your bible, the sermon outline, bread and wine/grape juice for Holy Communion.

Tonight our midweek community group meets online from 7 to 8pm, and we’d love to have you join us as we fellowship, pray and study chapter three of the Gospel of John. Here is the link to the meeting.

For those who want to memorize Ephesians 1:3-14, you can find a copy of the passage here. Another version (NIV), in a smaller format, comes to us with the help of Danielle Penne and can be found here.

If you give to the church using bluepay, could you kindly send a quick email to our bookkeeper, Danielle Penne, at daniellepenne@sbcglobal.net? She doesn’t have a name to credit the donation to and wants to be sure you get the tax deduction. Thanks so much. For those of you mailing in checks to the church, please send them to: Holy Trinity Church, 1394 Huggins Ave., Chico, CA 95926. You can also give online by using our website. On behalf of the Leadership Team: thank you all for your generosity!

Yours in the divine embrace –

Tom
