(1Chron. 28:20)

The church needs a little sprucing up here and there. And the church needs a lot of sprucing up here and there! 
Our church needs some attention; inside and out, the building and grounds and all ‘round, the church needs some TLC. So, we will meet Saturday morning on the 17th of June, from 8:30 to ??, to do just that: Spruce up the place!
All are welcome; men and women, boys and girls, dogs and kats, come one, come all, and help clean-up/fix-up God’s house! 
Please bring all of your tools, some of your tools, or just yourselves, but please, come out to help!





Spring 2017 Garden Report

   Greetings from the Trinity Garden! We have had a very busy End-O-Winter/Spring harvest out here: the potatoes we planted in February were pulled from the ground in early May, and the yield was outstanding!


   On Valentine’s Day the Trinity gardeners planted 50lbs. of seed potatoes (grown in Minnesota). From that 50lb. bag, the garden produced over 400lbs. of red potatoes! Ever seen 400lbs. of potatoes? Take our word for it, that’s a lot of potatoes!


   For our spring planting, green beans, tomatoes and okra went into the ground. As of this writing, the green beans have, and are still, producing quite well, and the tomatoes are just now producing beautiful red tomatoes. Our okra plants are growing tall, and will begin producing fruit as soon as the weather turns hot (which will be soon).


   As spring turns to summer, and the days turn to scorching, purple hull peas will take the spaces vacated by the potatoes and beans and carry the garden production through to fall.


   And late July/August will see the return of the County Youth Services “R U Ready for Jr. Hi. Summer Camp” kids. These young folks come to Trinity every summer, and gardening is high on their list of activities done here at the church.

   Ah yes, these are busy times in and around the garden, and your help is always needed. Please talk with one of our gardeners, or just come on out for a tour. Everyone is always welcome!

Anywho, here are the numbers. And, as always, all produce is given to area food pantries:


Potatoes (Red) - 403lbs.

Green beans (to date) – 40lbs.

Blood, sweat and tears - minimal

Blessings, Y’all!


Text Box: Abundant Living
By: Rev. Micki Rios

Some people have asked for the description of Abundant living I had in my sermon for May 7, 2017.  I must tell you this is not my personal list, I got it from several sources and then worked it into my sermon.  I love this list because sometimes I   forget that my life is abundant and when things happen I need reminders about the abundance I have.  So, here is the list and if it helps you I am glad.
How can we know if we are living life in its abundance?
We learn to live each day in the light of Christ
When we can look back on the past, without it ruling the present.
We are filled with faith, hope, and love, and live without anger, greed, guilt, envy, or thoughts of revenge.
We are secure in who we are, so we are at peace with God.
We love the unlovable, give hope to the hopeless, friendship to the friendless, and encouragement to the discouraged.
We can look back in forgiveness, and forward in hope, with gratitude to God.
We recognize, develop, and use our God-give physical, mental, and spiritual abilities to the glory of God and for the benefit of mankind.



June Scripture Quiz


No one correctly answered the May Quiz:


May Question:

   Jacob took his wives and all his possessions and left is Uncle Laban. He journeyed to the land of Edom to meet his brother, Esau. One night Jacob wrestled with a man till daybreak, when the man “touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man said, ‘Let me go, for it is daybreak.”

   What did Jacob ask the man to do for him, and what did the man do for Jacob?


Answer: Genesis 32:26-32

   But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

   The man asked him, “What is your name?”

   “Jacob,” he answered.

   Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome.”

   Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.”

   But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there.

   So Jacob called the place Peniel*, saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.”

   The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel*, and he was limping because of his hip. Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob’s hip was touched near the tendon.

     (*Peniel means face of God)


June Question:

For what reason(s) did Joseph’s brothers hate him, and what did they eventually do to him?


   Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the lord delivers him in times trouble.

   The Lord will protect him and preserve his life; he will bless him in the land

   and not surrender him to the desire of his foes.

   The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.

   Psalm 41
