Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

Just as Jesus appeared face-to-face with his friends during the forty-day period between Easter and Ascension Day, may he appear to you every time you read his Word, pray and reach out to others in his name. I pray the blessing of his presence will grace your life this week!

Last Sunday we overviewed this remarkable, mysterious period in the Church calendar when we bask in the victory of Christ’s resurrection and eagerly anticipate his return to the Father in heaven, where he will be coronated King, invested as High Priest and seated in his place of authority at the Father’s right hand. If you missed last Sunday’s message, you can access the recording here. Outline and slides can be found here.

This Sunday we continue our Eastertide journey and will be blessed to sit under the teaching of Craig Anderson. We’ve all come to love Craig and appreciate his insightful teaching. If you are unable to attend the service in person, please tune in at 9am using this Zoom link.

The passcode is: 0404. We will also record the service, so you can watch the recording after it is posted next Tuesday or Wednesday.

We will be announcing a church “work day” in the near future to bring us together to begin to do some sorting, organizing and eliminating of some things on the church property. So, keep your ears open!

Our community group resumes next Tuesday night from 7-8pm. You are invited, even if you haven’t yet attended. It’s a great time to share and learn from God’s Word. We meet on Zoom for prayer, fellowship and bible study in John’s Gospel. Please use the following link for the Zoom meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82177078238

Just a quick reminder: if you haven’t yet signed up to help with our adorable kids in children’s church, would you please consider it? You need no special training. Lynn does all the hard work, but we need other loving adults to make sure our children are well cared for. You can sign up on the calendar on our website or by using this link. If each of us served just once every other month, we would have all the help we need. Thanks so much for considering this!

Thank you for your continued prayers for those in our body who face health issues, losses, financial difficulties and other challenges. Our Father hears every prayer and loves to answer them for the good of his people and the glory of his Son, Jesus.

Eastertide blessings –

Tom
