Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

Blessings to you during this third week of the Eastertide: the season of resurrection and new life.

Last Sunday, we our looked at the second part of Jude 3 in which the author urges his hearers to fight for the faith “once entrusted to God’s holy people.” Because there are evil people and dark powers, we need to be vigilant, preserving the Gospel faithfully from one generation to the next. This requires we be thoroughly acquainted with God’s Word, that we apply it to our lives and that we pass it on to others. If you missed the service, you can view the recording here.

This Sunday—the fourth Sunday of Eastertide and Mother’s Day—we will draw some lessons from the life of Mary, the mother of our Lord. For those unable to attend in person, be sure to tune in to our livestream at 9am Sunday morning at the following YouTube link https://youtu.be/ncl3I11D5ZE  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.  We also have Zoom setup for those unable to meet in person. Please use the following link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81655475348

Men, join us next Wednesday night, May 11, at the church building for a time of fellowship and spiritual challenge. Our goal is to become the best fathers, husbands and solid men of God we can be. Plan to join us! We meet from 6:30-8pm.

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), Jackie Musselman (recovery from knee surgery), David Calkins (healing of foot), James Johnson (cancer), Kaylinn Hignell (cancer), Nola Taylor (hospice care) and Barbara Trimmer (medical issues). Please pray also for an end to the bloodshed in Ukraine. Thank you!

Because he lives –

Tom
