Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

Blessings in the name of our great King Jesus!

If you are able, please join us for a few hours Saturday, October 16 as we do some work around the church building. We will do various projects from 9 to 11:30am, at which time we’ll enjoy some pizza together before heading our separate ways. Let us know if you can make it so we can order accordingly. You can sign up online here.

Last Sunday, we took a look at seven different spiritual pathways that help us connect deeply with God. I hope you are zeroing in on those pathways that are most helpful to you and using them daily to pray, hear his voice and experience his power and love. If you missed the message, you can check out the sermon outline and slides here and the recording here.

This Sunday, we will begin a look at an astonishing New Testament passage: Colossians 3:12-14. This week will focus on the first part of the verse, which describes our new identity as Christ followers. Knowing whom God has made us to be in Christ is essential to living a life of significance, great joy and unshakable peace. If you are unable to attend the service in person, please tune in at 9am using this Zoom link.

The passcode is the same as always: 0404. We will also record the service, so you can watch the recording after it is posted the following week.

As always, please be sure to stay for a few minutes after the service to enjoy some coffee, snacks and fellowship. Thank you, Bishop family, for making this fellowship time possible!

If you are looking for a bible study where you can connect relationally and grow spiritually, we’d love to have you join us on Tuesday nights from 7-8pm at the church building. We pray, fellowship and study John’s Gospel. We are just about to being John 16. We also have Zoom setup for those unable to meet in person. Please use the following link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82177078238

We also have a prayer group that meets on Fridays at noon to pray for our nation, state, city and church and would love for you to join us! We are asking the Lord to expose evil, frustrate the plans of bad actors, raise up his church is strong, vocal faith and restore righteousness, integrity and love in our land. Join us at the church building from 12-1pm. All are welcome.

Finally, we would love to have your help in Kid’s Church when you are able. No special skills are needed: just a love for our kids. You can sign up by letting Lynn know or by using the calendar on our website. Here’s the link.

Thanks so much for your prayers for those in our body who face health issues, losses, financial difficulties and other challenges. Please be in prayer particularly for Danielle Penne (leg procedure), Don Rogers (West Nile Virus), Keri Oliva (cancer), Laine Dahlberg (premature baby recovering from heart surgery), Nola Taylor (medical issues), Barbara Trimmer (medical issues), James Johnson (Cancer).

In his grip –

Tom
