Meet Jesus at the Wheatland Fair-Rodeo!

Have a super Labor Day Weekend with Jesus! I hope to see you at the IMG_2919Wheatland Fair and Rodeo this weekend!  Jesus will greet you there as well. How do we know Jesus will be there? Psalm 139: 7 tells us:  “Where can I go from your Spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence?” So, have a super Labor Day Weekend!  Sunday’s theme lifts up the importance of our spiritual habits or disciplines with the title: “Value Your Spiritual Bank”. Les Snyder blest me recently with this poem I want to share with you: “Don’t ever sell your saddle,  never owe another man, watch where you spit on a windly day; don’t use words you don’t understand, Find the Lord before you need Him, never lose your pride, don’t ever sell your saddle,  cause life’s a long, long ride.” Remember the Lord is always before you and behind you. Stay tuned- Pastor John


Getting Older? Don’t Lose Heart!

Our relationship with Jesus-and what we experience daily go so wellimages together. The trouble with whatever we are going through at times is that we aren’t aware how much God is already there in our lives.  Life leads us to God and God leads us to life!

Last Sunday I preached about the danger and blessing that can come from falls, especially spiritual falls. Well, last Sunday night my 97 year old mother fell. She’s doing well after her fall.

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been not only ministering to families with marriage troubles but also our older people. Older people whose bodies are giving out. Haven’t we all had moments when we’ve wondered what’s going on with our bodies?

Tomorrow’s worship theme-is “How do we Grow Old with God?” Text-2 Cor. 4:16-18. The key here is knowing spiritually how not to loose a heart for God.

Following worship those who are interested are invited to bring a salad or desert to share with my grilling hamburgers.   See  ya in Worship! -Pastor John and Maureen

What’s it Going to be: Zombie Doughnuts or Jesus?

Hello summer lovers!  Summer is winding down-bo, bo, bo!

images What’s to be excited about?  Recently in the  August 16th Spokane Review newspaper there was an article about a new eatery. What do they offer? Zombie doughnuts. Doughnuts in the shape of coffins and this pastry in the shape of zombies with two bullet holes in the head. According to the article business is fantastic.  Opening day all the workers dressed up in zombie costumes and the line for these pastries was around the block!  Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder!

Real excitement is found where?  In Jesus Christ. In walking and talking withimages Him (the Holy Spirit) each day!

This Sunday’s theme: How Not to Mess Up a Relationship with God! Don’t we all have bad hair days? Haven’t we all done things that have caused messes?

In the life of King Saul we see mess up after mess-up. This may not be as exciting as Zombie Doughnuts but God wants far more for you then just a white sugar high! King Saul shows us how not to mess up our relationship with God!  See ya Sunday! -Pastor John

Will You Eat of the Tree of Life?

imagesThis Sunday we of Trinity will meet in the Ritzville Park for our Annual Outdoor Worship and Picnic.  We begin with Adult Sunday School at 9am and worship begins at 10:30.

Jim Harwood and a friend will be on guitar, Jerry Snyder will be playing Jim’s electronic piano, and Harry and Byron will be adding to our praising God with harmonicas.

Our outdoor theme will be: “We Can Even Learn from God’s Trees”!  Just think of all the biblical stories and main events that involved trees or wood? Will you eat one day of the Tree of Life?  Revelation 2:7 says: “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches: To Him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”

Following worship you’re welcome to take part in our potluck picnic ! The church will provide burgers and drinks!  Bring a salad and dessert!

Stay Tuned! -Your Servants for Christ-John and maureen!
