Dear Trinity Baptist Church Family: I pray that your hearts today would be bent towards Jesus as we anticipate the Lord’s Day tomorrow.

Linda McCrary called to say that Tony has returned to the hospital in Manitowoc because of an infection. You will remember that he has fought infections in the past 12 months that have accompanied his several hip replacement surgeries. I do not know details, but would ask you to pray.

Pray for Pastor Shaeffer’s health – especially that they would learn the cause of his gut issues.

Tomorrow morning we will look at 3 visions and a command in Zechariah 6-7. It’s the wrap up of these unusual pictures that were given to the returned remnant as encouragement for their work. In the evening preaching, Charlie is going to begin a walk through the little book of Ruth. This fun story has so many practical applications. I pray you will prioritize theses opportunities to hear and apply God’s Word.

Pray for Souped Up! We have a goal of $4,000. To accomplish this we must sell about 600 pints/quarts of soup. This has become the second largest fund raiser for our school and is another great opportunity to get the word out about our ministries. We are looking for help – especially driving delivery at lunch time and washing out used roasters in the late afternoon/early evening. Even if you only have an hour to give, pop in the kitchen at school. Dishwashers are always welcome! See Beth Braker if you can drive or would commit to a certain time of the day. We will be working from early morning until closing at 7 p.m.

Pray that our church be faithful to God’s Word. Pray that we would retain our first love for Jesus and the Church. Pray that we not be distracted from our service by all the glitter and gloom of our present world. Pray for one another.

Embracing Truth, Pastor
