All Members, Winter Residents, Family and Friends, Greetings on this Tuesday evening! It is hard to believe that we are here at October 1st, 2019. The year is slipping by us very fast before you know it Christmas will be here and we will be looking at a New Year soon. But we still have many days and many opportunities for each of us to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ! At the recent Leadership Planning Summit where many of the different leaders of the church came together we started planning for the year ahead. We also looked at some ways for the congregation to reach out to the community and to the country. One of the passive programs that I just sign up is called “Faithful Parking”. It is a service that provides contact information and reservation information for RV’ers to spend the night on our church property. It costs us nothing to sign up and we can get up to 60% of the cost of the overnight stay and we can add fees for electric and or water hook ups. Over 1 million people are traveling by RV “full-time” and many millions more that are traveling seasonally or on vacation with their families. It is a way to expose the church to visitors from across the country. If you know someone who travels with their RV tell them to check out and perhaps they can find a nice church parking lot to park in for the night. It sure beats public parking lots! We could have a real ministry to people like this if it takes off. It would be good to have a welcoming committee to welcome these RV’ers if anyone takes advantage of our offer! We have got a full calendar of events coming up this month! Every Friday afternoon at 2:00PM is Crafts with Lind and Julie in theTrinity Life Center. October 6th, 2019 -- This Sunday we change our schedule a little; Bible Study still begins at 8:30AM but will end at 9:15AM. (We are studying the Book of Revelation!)

Maybe we can get a pot luck luncheon in there on a Sunday. I might start my mid-week Bible Study towards the end of the month. Many things are scheduled giving YOU the opportunity to invite a friend to come and introduce them to the church family here at Trinity!!!! Well my sermon for Sunday is attached. The 6th and 7th Petitions of the Lord’s prayer “Lead Us Not Into Temptation, But Deliver Us From Evil” is our portion of Scripture for this weeks sermon. Have a great week and make it great for someone else as well! Pastor Norris
