The purpose of the Evangelism Ministry is to share the joyful news that Jesus is our personal Savior, Who forgives our sins, Who calms our fears, Who comforts our grieving hearts, Who inspires our dreams, Who enriches our happiness, and Who secures our future for all eternity.
Proudly Bear the Name of the Lord
We try to worship with my Mother as much as possible at her church, Faith Lutheran, in Carpinteria CA. This month we attended Faith Lutheran’s 45th anniversary worship service and celebration. Like Faith Lutheran, we will celebrate Holy Trinity’s 45th anniversary next spring.
Over the past forty-five years, the ministry of Holy Trinity has seen wonderful works of “joy complete[d] by being like-minded having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.” – Philippians 2:2.
The same spirit – The Holy Sprit – brought my wife Ann and I to Holy Trinity nearly three years ago when we attended the Christmas Eve worship service. Perhaps it was the sign out front advertising the worship service that attracted our attention, but I really believe the Holy Spirit called us here.
Today, a similar sign advertises our new Contemporary Worship Service for those driving by Mt. Clef and Los Arboles. I pray that they may be fortunate to see the wonderful works of Holy Trinity’s ministry.
But sometimes, a sign is not enough and it requires us to “thank the Lord and sing his praise; tell everyone what he has done.” As Paul reminds us in Philippians 2:1, have “encouragement from being united in Christ.” Have courage to tell your friends, your neighbors, and co-workers what Christ has done for you. “Proudly bear his name,” and they will celebrate with you.
