28 Mar Prayer Makes a Difference
Friend, we are PRAYING for you!
The news from across the country and around the world about Covid-19 is overwhelming, but nothing is too great for our God! We are seeing hearts and minds turn to Him in unprecedented numbers, and we are blessing and praising His name!
Two weeks ago, we would never have thought that we would temporarily have to “rethink” how we do church. We miss seeing our Trinity family members walk through the doors. We miss the hugs, the smiles, and the hands-on prayers. And we know you miss that connection too. So we wanted to let you know what we are doing, how you can stay connected with us, and how much we LOVE you!
Prayer Makes a Difference
Please know that we are actively, every day and every hour, praying for you. We are praying for you and your family, for your finances, for your neighbors. We are praying for your health, mentally and physically. We pray right now, this very moment, that God would touch you and calm your spirit. That you would feel His presence so strongly that all fear and uncertainty would be driven away. That your only focus is on Him and the good He is going to do in your life!
We want to pray specifically for your needs

My Promise & Provision Declaration
Keep these scriptures in your mind and heart and let them bring you peace and hope as you read them!
God will hear us and save us: If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us. (2 Chronicles 20:9)
God can sweep what plagues us away: He went out from Pharaoh and made supplication to the LORD. So the LORD shifted the wind to a very strong west wind which took up the locusts and drove them into the Red Sea; not one locust was left in all the territory of Egypt. (Exodus 10:18-19)
God is your protection: Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. (Psalm 91:3-8)
God heals all wounds: He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)
God wants us to be cheerful: A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)
God calls us to prayer: Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. (James 5:16)
God calls us to persevere: We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:8-9)
God offers us refuge: I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:2)
Our God is mighty, friend! He is IN CONTROL and He will REDEEM every situation. This world has never faced a disaster, illness, or plague that can drive our God away. He is ever-present and He will work even this to His glory. We hope these verses will encourage and sustain you as they have encouraged us!
Our Church is STILL SERVING
While we are unable to meet each Sunday, we are still working hard to support you and the entire community. Our staff is present and praying, supporting our Trinity Family in every way they can. We are staying in touch, we are praying, we are worshiping, and we are STILL a community!
As we approach our Passover Offering, please remember your commitment. God’s PASSOVER PROMISES to you are still in effect! Be praying over them daily and preparing your offerings for the Lord. We may not be actively meeting in God’s house, but His house is still serving each of us and we are still called to support the church.
Each week Robyn and I sit together and worship the Lord. We pray and study Scripture. And our offering is sent to the church automatically! We downloaded the app and set up automatic giving. Will you join us?
The Early Church gathered weekly (Acts 20:7) and we will continue to gather as well! The church BUILDING is closed, but the CHURCH IS OPEN!
We are still GATHERING weekly—online, in our homes, with our families.
We still bring our tithe.
We STILL trust God’s Word.
We still stand in faith to BE the Church.
We ARE the CHURCH! WE ARE GONNA WIN! WE LOVE YOU!
In times of crisis we don’t stop anything! Instead we shift into AUTOMATIC and allow God to empower us through His Spirit to persevere through the challenges!
The world around us may be uncertain and operating in fear, but WE AREN’T! We are living a life of grace, hope, and love. We are living a life blessed by God, and we are believing in His protection and provision.
We love you!
Pastor Rich and Dr. Robyn
