Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

I hope your Thanksgiving celebration was a rich and joyful family time! Thanksgiving Day is a great way for Christians in the U.S. to get our hearts in the right posture in time for Advent, which starts this Sunday. The gratitude we feel during late November prepares our hearts as we enter these four weeks of waiting, preparing, telling and worshipping.

Last week, we finished our look at chapter two of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. If you missed the service, you can watch the recording here and access the notes and slides here.

This Sunday, we will begin our Advent series by looking at Isaiah 9:1-7 and the theme of “waiting”. I hope you can join us all four weeks. If you don’t already know, we meet at 9am at 1595 Arbutus Ave. There are a few parking spaces in the lot on the west side of the building (off 5th) as well as street parking on both Arbutus and 5th Ave. Our COVID safety precautions are given at the bottom of this email.

Our community group meets next Tuesday, Dec 1 from 7-8pm. All are invited! We meet on Zoom for prayer, fellowship and bible study. The link for the Zoom meeting is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87449423015

For those of you unable to make our in-person service, we will be recording it for you so you can watch the recording later in the day. Email me and let me know if you want access to it on Sunday. Greg will send me the link after the service, and I will be happy to forward it to any of you who would like to view it. It will also be posted on our website next Tuesday.

Yours in him –

Tom
