Dear Trinity Family,
The current health crisis now impacting literally every nation and people around the world is also bringing to many, a sense of hopeless, fear, economic hardship, and depression. Over the last couple of weeks, the elders have been leading a short time of online prayer each evening to pray with and encourage our church body. As we transition into April, we are sensing God’s call for our church to a special emphasis of prayer, fasting, and repentance.
We are therefore asking each of you to commit to a day or days in April in which you will fast and pray for 2 things: (1) that God would show mercy to the nations and bring health and healing from this virus and its effects and (2) that God’s Spirit would move upon the nations to turn to Christ in genuine repentance, faith, and revival.
These are not small prayers. Yet, we believe God is doing something in our world that is unprecedented in terms of its world-wide scope and the opportunity in our day to communicate the gospel as never before. We serve a loving God, “who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).
Please Click Here to Sign Up for a day (or days) to pray and fast. We have attached a prayer guide to assist you in your time of fasting and prayer.
Other April Happenings:
- We as the elder team will be continuing our nightly times of prayer (Mon.-Sat.) on Facebook Live at 7pm, we have greatly enjoyed this time of unity and intercession.
- We know that many of you have also fallen upon hardship as a result of this situation, and we want to do all we can to help and support you. If you are in need or know someone else in the body that is struggling, Please Click Here to fill out a help request form.
- We are continuing our Adopt-a-Senior program and there are a few more slots available. If you are interested, Please Click Here.
- We are looking forward to celebrating Easter Sunday with you digitally, and rejoicing together in the glorious work of the cross. We will be doing something special for our kids as well, so keep an eye out for that.
We believe God has a great purpose in what he has allowed for this time in history. We hope you will join us as we humble ourselves and pray together. May the Lord receive all the glory.
May God bless each of you and keep you in his care,
The Elders of Trinity Community Church
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge — no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. ‘Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”’ Psalm 91:1-15 ESV
