IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY, JANUARY 21:  Liturgist Bob Ridgeway will assist Pastor Jeff Price in leading worship.  Julianne Sublette will give God’s Word for Children.  The Sanctuary Choir will present Jane Holstein’s arrangement of Sebastian Temple’s Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.  Jeff Price continues his sermon series entitled “The To Do List:  The Commandments of Christ.”  Jeff’s message this Sunday is “To Do List:  Love Your Enemies” drawn from Matthew 5:44.  We will sing the hymns O For a World; Here Is Peace; and Come! Live in the Light!  New officers will be ordained and installed during worship.

MID-WINTER FRED MONTH!  The FRED Talks have been so well received that we are having four weeks of talks during the month of January.  Each week will stand alone, but the classes are loosely connected by their focus and leader.  Frank Howell will speak each Sunday focusing on what scripture tells us about ourselves and the physical world we live in.  This is a topic of interest that Frank has delved into over the years and, from that exploration, has developed these talks and discussions.  Please join us each week in the Fellowship Hall starting at 9:00am for refreshments and 9:15am for the talks as we explore:

1/21: Touch – how physically taking part in our beliefs can impact our own lives and the lives of others.

1/28: Balance – maximizing our daily lives for personal growth and impacting those we care about.

KICK-OFF BRUNCH FOR WOMEN’S SPRING BIBLE STUDY:  Join us for a special morning of food and fellowship at Teresa Alexander’s home (18 Ridgefield Cove, 72223) on Wednesday, January 24 at 11:00am.  Let’s meet in the church parking lot at 10:45am to carpool.  Bring a favorite brunch dish to share.  We will be discussing topics for our spring Women @ The Table study.  Questions?  Call Nancy Howell at 501-519-3281.

LOUIS JULY 15-21:  Current 10th–12th graders and college-aged youth, get ready to join other youth from around the Presbytery of Arkansas this summer to experience one of the Presbyterian Church’s most important events—the biennial General Assembly—and to serve our brothers and sisters in the St. Louis/Ferguson, Missouri area.  This trip is a unique chance to see how our church works on a national level and engage in mission work with an intentional focus on learning about race and faith.  And in the midst of all of this, we plan to have a ton of fun, enjoy the St. Louis area, and grow together in faith and community!  A deposit of $100 by February 15 is required to hold your spot on the trip.  Make checks payable to Trinity Presbyterian Church and turn them in to Jared Brown.  Direct questions to Jared Brown at 870-299-0989.
