Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Love in Christ,
Wow! August already?! It is hard to believe that it is already time for our children and grandchildren to start back to school. Let us be sure to pray for the school administrators, custodians, kitchen workers, bus drivers and of course, our teachers and children as they begin another year of serving and learning. Let us also keep the families of those who are going to school for the first time in our prayers, as the first day is difficult on the adults and the children. And, of course, we need to pray protection over our schools as we remember all the precious children and teachers who lost their lives in school shootings last year. I believe this is also a reminder for us as adults to make sure we are aware of things going on around us. However, we are not a people to live in fear because fear is of the enemy and not of God. So let us be strong and bold in faith and ask God for the protection of our schools this year.
In August, here at Trinity, we are once more reaching out to our community by offering a back-to-school Summer Block Party for the children in our community on Sunday, August 12th, 3-5 p.m. We are going to have a ‘rock climbing wall’, a bouncy tent for the little children, Bill Harris’ Ice Cream, face painting and a few crafts. Please come out and join us for ice cream (even if you don’t want to climb up the rock wall). We are also starting a Precious Stitches group on Mondays at 1:00 p.m. for those who knit and/or crochet or would like to learn to knit and/or crochet. We are making scarves and hats to give away this fall. Come and join us on Mondays for a wonderful time of connecting and fellowship. And, on Thursday, August 30th, we are planning a road trip to the Apple Cake Tea Room. Please keep a look out for more information and plan to sign-up to join us.
Looking ahead…I will be leading a Bible Study on the “Book of Revelation” beginning in September. Please plan to join me for an amazing journey through John’s vision from the island of Patmos. Wednesday Meals will also start up again in September. So, enjoy August and join us on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. as we offer our praise and worship to our great God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is doing wonderful things here at Trinity. We are so thankful that you have chosen to be a part of us.
May the God, who created the heavens and the earth, keep watch over you, reveal Himself to you and draw you ever closer to Him.
