I just wanted to encourage you to make every effort to be “in your place” as a part of this Body during the next two, very special weeks!
This year has started off with a bang! We have had people saved, join, and come to be baptized - each and every week since beginning “The Church” series! We have finished “in the black” January and February and this is the first January and February that we have finished in the black since 2005! On top of all this, we had 62 families lead out and commit over $500,000 to our “Freedom for Tomorrow…Today” campaign, which officially kicks off this Sunday. All of that - and we have not even gotten to our two biggest Sundays of the year so far! I want to encourage you to come and be a part of the next two weeks in the life of Trinity – not only on Sunday, but at all of our events! But, especially during the next two Sundays, come expecting God to work in a great way! We have some great days before us – keep these dates on your fridge and be here to fulfill your part!
March 26-27: This will be our 24 hour Prayer Vigil; we have bathed this campaign – and this BODY, Trinity - in prayer. I can’t think of a better way to kick everything off than interceding on behalf of one another before the throne of God!
March 28: This is Victory Sunday; we will make our commitments on a card and turn them in, and then we will begin giving not only in our tithes and regular offering, but we will also begin giving towards our commitment this week!
March 31: This will be our Passion Week service. We will not have AWANA or our Student Service on this night, but instead we will be together and we will focus on the cross. We will also be partaking of the Lord’s Supper during this time as we remember our Savior’s amazing grace!
April 4: Easter Sunday, we will do what we do every single week - we will celebrate our Savior’s victory over death! (But, I am guessing there will be a lot more unfamiliar faces) We should be in prayer for this service - praying that God would do a work in the hearts of people that will come in our service but do not know Christ.
All of this in period of about two weeks! It is a wonderful time to be at Trinity, and these are exciting days as we experience together our Lord’s wonderful work.
