Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

Blessings to you as we now enter the sixth week of Lent: the final week before Palm Sunday and Passion Week.

Last Sunday, we looked together at Paul’s remarkable recounting of our Lord’s humiliation and exaltation in Philippians 2:6-11. He set aside certain privileges he enjoyed in heaven to become a human and die on the cross. The Father, in turn, exalted his Son to the highest place! If you missed the service, you can access the notes and PowerPoint here and view the recording here.

This week, Brent will share with us out of his recent experiences with the Lord as we observe Palm Sunday. For those unable to attend in person, be sure to tune in to our livestream at 9am Sunday morning at the following YouTube link As you know, we will also record the service, so you can watch the recording after it is posted next week.

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 as we study the book of Romans. We meet 7-8pm at the church building for prayer, fellowship and bible study. Our next meeting is April 12, and we will study Romans 7. We also have Zoom setup for those unable to meet in person. Please use the following link

Women, Danielle Penne will lead a 7-week video group on, “Discerning the Voice of God” using the Priscilla Shirer videos beginning April 25th. The group meets at the Penne’s house on Mondays from 6:30-8 pm. Mark your calendars, sign up in the lobby and let her know if you plan to come! The workbook is $16.99.

Men, plan to join us next Wednesday night, April 13 from 6:30-8 pm at the church building for our next men’s gathering. We’ll talk about a simple, effective way to spend some time with the Lord each day as we seek to know him better and to become a better husband, dad and child of God.

Has God been prompting you to pray more for our nation, state, city and His church? If so, come join us each Friday at the church building from 12-1pm. 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.

Thanks so much for your continued prayers for those in our body who face health issues, losses, financial difficulties and other challenges. One of the great privileges we have is to hold each other up in prayer. Please be in prayer particularly for Emmett and Pat Jarvis (Louis’ dad [stage 4 cancer] and mom [dementia]), Phil Larios (medical issue), Tom Vervoorn (medical issue), David Calkins (healing of foot), James Johnson (cancer), Kaylinn Hignell (cancer), Mark Spelts (death of best friend), Nola Taylor (hospice care) and Barbara Trimmer (medical issues). Please pray also for an end to the bloodshed in Ukraine. Thank you!
