From the Prayer Ministry

“O GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD; CALL UPON HIS NAME. MAKE KNOWN HIS DEEDS AMONG THE PEOPLES.” PSALM 105:1

Gratitude is a loving and thankful response toward God for His presence with us and within the world. We have much to be grateful for as we look back at the past church year. Give Him thanks for Trinity Baptist Church and its ministries. Make a list of the things you are grateful for today and spend some time telling God “thank you.”

Give thanks to God for the baptisms and new members this past year, along with the many additions to the Children’s Ministry, the Student Ministry and the Young Adult Ministry. Be thankful for the generous year-end giving and the new church leaders who are in position to serve. Ask God for continued wisdom and discernment for the church staff and leadership as we enter 2015-2016 church year. (Psalm 122:1)
