Dear Trinity family and friends,
I am at our church on most days and recently I was talking with someone from the congregation. They used one of those phrases we’ve heard throughout our lives. That person remarked,
A Penny for Your Thoughts!
I never thought much about that comment but I started to think, a penny isn’t much, right? One penny won’t buy much, but if you had enough pennies you could buy anything. In the same way, the right thoughts, thinking God-thoughts, added together, can become an amazing life. We don’t always put much value on thinking God’s thoughts on a continual basis, but the Bible puts it this way, 
I will keep you in perfect peace, if you place your mind on me (the Lord), if you put your trust in me (the Lord). 
Isaiah 26:3
During the course of the day, we have thousands of thoughts, don’t we? We think about important and unimportant items. And, we all have RANDOM thoughts that aren’t worth a penny. Our mind can go off on a bad moment from yesterday and in reality, it isn’t worth the time we give that thought, right? 
We need to give our thoughts to the Lord, and when we do that, God gives us God-thoughts to think (see Isaiah 55:8-9). Verse 11 of Isaiah 55:11 tells us,  

So my Word (God’s thoughts), which goes from my mouth will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish what I want it to do, and will carry out my plan well.
I want to challenge you to think God’s thoughts today-thoughts of forgiveness, caring, love, faith, joy, peace, and mercy for others around you. I guarantee your day and life will go on a better trajectory. 
A Penny for your Thoughts…

1. Valentine’s Dinner with Trinity, 
Saturday, February 16, 5:30pm
This Saturday evening, at Fortune Star in Natrona Heights, we will hold our annual Valentine’s Dinner. Contact Rich Schachte for more information at 412-303-3413. Rich always makes the dinner a fun and enjoyable time of fellowship for the church family!

2. Bible Study on Job-A Story of Unlikely Joy, Tuesdays, 7pm, at Trinity
Contact Pastor Janet for information on the book and interest in the study at the church.
3. This week in worship
Jesus reminds us, “I will not leave you orphaned” (John 14:18). At some point, we all need to hear these words. They speak directly to our greatest fears and challenges; abandonment and isolation, loneliness, vulnerability. They remind us that we are not destined to walk this earth without direction or purpose. We do not stand alone. Yet, every time we expand the boundaries of our love for others, we push back on the orphanages of this world, creating space where Jesus makes his home within us (Rev. 3:20). Join us this weekend as we continue on the path we began last Sunday, that we are free through Christ (Titus 2:14) and his power in our lives opens us to live a life of fulfillment and real meaning every day!
Thank you for your continued weekend attendance in worship, even through these cold, snowy and wintry days of the year! It makes a difference for all of our spiritual lives together in Christ! (Hebrews 10:24-25).

See you in worship! 
Pastor Cletus

We are located at 3400 Garvers Ferry Rd, Lower Burrell, PA 15068.
