Sandwich Ministry Weekly Message:
(This message was included in each sandwich bag handed out on Wednesday, March 28th.)
Easter is a joyous day at Holy Trinity Church as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Jesus’ resurrection and ascension into Heaven shows us that as Christians we, too, can experience eternal life with Jesus in heaven after our earthly death. Come and celebrate the true meaning of Easter with us. We invite you to join us in this celebration service on Sunday, April 1 at 10:00 am. All are welcome to attend as we celebrate this most holy of days in our Christian faith.
