Dear friends of Holy Trinity Chico –

Blessings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus!

Last Sunday, Craig treated us to an informative and inspirational look at God’s heart for the world and the current state of missionary work. The message was filled with vital information about where the Church stands in its task of fulfilling Christ’s great commission to take the Gospel to the whole earth. If you—like Lynn and I—were away last Sunday, be sure to check out the sermon outline and slides here and the recording here.

This Sunday, Brent will be teaching from God’s Word about what it looks like to live by faith and not give into fear. Brent’s style is conversational and encouraging, so 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 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. Currently, we are in John 15. 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), and all the fire fighters and residents affected by the Dixie fire.

Lynn and I look forward to being with you again this Sunday. We missed you last week! Our daughter’s wedding was a memorable event, complete with rain and a spontaneous pool plunge by the wedding party!

Yours in Christ –

Tom
