Dear Trinity Baptist Church Family: We don’t take enough time to rejoice in what God is doing. Rejoice with me!

– Jean wrote to me this week that she was able to lead a lady named JaLinda to the Lord over the phone. Dan and JaLinda are a couple Dick and Jean met in Arizona. Pray for their spiritual growth.

– Beth tells me that several of our Awana parents are telling her how impressed they are with our Awana Clubs and how happy their young people are to be at TBC.

– Lin was able to walk through much of the gospel with a brand new Sparky a week ago Wednesday.

– I preached through the end of Revelation in high school chapel this week and was asked many good questions as I emphasized the reality and permanence of heaven and hell.

– Randy told me today about a couple of conversations he has recently had that have turned towards God in part because of our Exchange Sunday School class.

So rejoice. God is alive and working in Fond du Lac and the world in and through this church.

Pray for Pastor Shaeffer to learn the cause of his gut pain. This morning he had the second of 2 tests looking for bad bacteria. He will meet with a GI doctor on Tuesday.

Bonnie Fiebig will have the procedure to correct her great pain two weeks from today. Pray that she will be able to have the procedure and that it will be successful in eliminating her pain.

Pray for our school. Parents are being asked what their plans are for next year so the school committee can make budgeting plans. Pray God will send us the right students for our school.

This Sunday evening we have a missionary with us from Chosen People Ministries. He is going to give a “Christ in the Passover” message. Come learn about this ministry and more about your own faith in Jesus.

Embracing Truth, Pastor

Dear Trinity Baptist Church Family: It was good to see Tony McCrary in church Sunday. Continue to pray for his strengthening and healing. Also pray for Bonnie Fiebig as she anticipates the procedure to get rid of her pain on March 29th.

Pastor Shaeffer spent 4 hours in ER last evening as a result of the great pain he is in. Please pray that he and the doctors will soon learn what is causing his digestive problems. Amber is sick too this week. Pray for the Shaeffers!

Our high school academic competition is this Friday. Pray for the Amy, other staff, and the young people as they go to compete. It is a long day.

We have a service opportunity this coming Saturday morning. A family that is moving to Fond du Lac is looking for hep unloading some pods of furniture into 225 Sheboygan Street – it is just east of Park Avenue. If you can lend a hand Saturday morning, we will begin at 8:00 a.m. Let me know if you are planning to help.

Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead and go to bed a bit early on Saturday. You don’t want to be late for Sunday School!

Embracing Truth, Pastor

Special Offering this Sunday

Dear Trinity Baptist Church Family, We all know of many good ministries that could use our financial help. Our church has chosen to partner with some on a regular basis, but plainly cannot support with our mission budget every ministry we like.

One good ministry that could use our support is Seed of Hope. For many years our member Laura Denk has been the director of Seed of Hope Center – a pregnancy center in West Bend, WI. We had a baby bottle fund raiser for them many years ago and several of our members have given to this ministry over the years. Our benevolent offering following Lord’s Table this Sunday morning will go to this ministry. Please consider what God would have you give to this good purpose.

Embracing Truth, Pastor

Dear Trinity Baptist Church Family: Thank you, thank you to the many who came together for Souped Up! yesterday. Thank you to those who purchased or sold tickets, to those who pushed souped to their co-workers. Thanks to Jenny for taking a day off work to make soup with me. Thanks to TBS staff and students for their extra efforts. Thanks to the delivery drivers and thanks especially to Jan, Linda, and Jose who scrubbed encrusted roasters and stayed until the kitchen was clean last night. Thanks to Brenda for a long day of babysitting so Beth could help. Thanks to Andras for being a great participant and help until the end. Thank you to Pastor Shaeffer for leadership and willingness to do whatever it takes. It was a good day.

Limited varieties of soup and other extras will be available for sale after Sunday morning church.

Tomorrow is Men’s prayer breakfast – 8a. I would appreciate notice this afternoon yet if your name is not on the sign up and you are planning on attending in the morning.

Sunday morning is Lord’s Table. “Oh, Lord, may we once again see Jesus.”

Pray for one another. Be patient with one another. Give the grace you have been given to all you meet.

Embracing Truth, Pastor
