Ash Wednesday Service 7 pm

Join us this Wednesday night at 7 pm in the Worship Center for an Ash Wednesday Service. We will be doing this with the rest of the church and then around 7:45 move down to the Student Center to wrap up our "Goin All the Way" series. Ash Wednesday gets its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of believers as a sign of repentance. It marks the beginning of Lent which is 46 days, (40 days not counting sundays) and is a time for believers to prepare themselves for Easter. During that time many people will give up something they enjoy (fasting), soda, sweets, computer, texting, facebook, internet, etc. However, what many people don't understand is that you are also suppose to renew in your life several things: prayer and what some call almsgiving, or justice towards our neighbor. So as we begin the Lent season together I would encourage you to do several things:

1. Attend the Ash Wednesday Service at 7 pm
2. Begin the practice of give up something
3. Begin doing something...emphasis on prayer and blessing other people
4. Visit a blog we have set up for the lent season :
5. Sign up for updates and scriptures through text messages: Send - follow stltrinity to 40404
6. Prepare your heart and your mind for what God wants to do in your life through these 46 days.

So glad to live in NOCO

My daughter, KJ, has been attending Preschool now for about 5 weeks and I went to pick her up a few minutes early last week.  They were in the gym playing and I noticed the diversity of her 'friends.'  I have to say I am so thankful to live in an area that is so diverse.  I want her to grow up with kids of all colors and for her to not even notice someone's skin color.  My hope is that we all begin to see people as people and not by their class, their skin color, their gender, etc.  But we don't!  We make assumptions and judgements simply by the way one looks or what city they are from or what job they have.  However, I believe God is going to do great things in the days to come in North County and I hope I am able to be a part of it.

Paul said in Galatians 3, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

The chorus in the song says

"So give me something to believe
Cause I am living just to breathe
And I need something more
To keep on breathing for
So give me something to believe"

What is that "more" you are breathing for? I think this song represents how many people feel. I am trying to help the young people I work with to find their purpose from God, the one who created them and gave them purpose. So what is your purpose? What is it that you Believe in?
