Conference
“Reconnect with: God, The
Word, Prayer, Missions &
Ministry”
May 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th
Devotional Thought:
Learning to live out "The Lord's Prayer" (Part 1 of 3)
Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven...(Matthew 6:9a ESV)
Before we can truly pray in earnest and with pure hearts we must first understand a few things. In the first part of Matthew 6:9 we find the phrase "Our Father in
heaven", this phrase recognizes relationship. Our relationship to God is a Father/Son
relationship in which God is the Father, this implies that God is the authority. In order
to have an effective prayer life we must first recognize God is totally in control of all
things...
Next month we will see three things that we must accept from heaven to earth in order to have God-centered and
spiritually effective prayer lives.

WASHINGTON PARISH FOOD BANK
MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY
AT LAST It's planting time in Washington
Parish. If you are a
gardener like me,
and I know many
of you are, there is
always extra produce when the crops come in (you know,
like the squash and cucumbers!). If you are
willing to bring your excess crops by the
food bank, we would love to have them. The
folks who come to the food bank would
really appreciate getting your extra fresh
fruits and vegetables.
So please think about this and pass this
idea along to other local gardeners that
might not know about this program. Questions, call Trinity Church or come by the
food bank (located 2009 Main St., Franklinton) on the morning of April 1st and ask for
Debbie. For more information, call 8393705.
THANKS for considering this community
volunteer opportunity.
