This year has been filled with wonderful services, lives being changed and new opportunities to serve!

Celebrate Recovery continues with new energy to impact special needs in the lives of many. We are blessed to have such a committed team of volunteers.

Our new Grief support group, GriefShare, opened with a wonderful response. Annette Anderson has taken the leadership role for the new ministry and has already blessed many broken hearts!

The Men’s Fishing trip was special this year. The men met for a special service at Wrightsville Beach’s, Silver Gull Resort, late in the evening in the shadow of the famous Johnnie Mercer’s Fishing Pier, we honored the life of David Hensley, Sr. The men formed a horseshoe of prayer into the ocean, as we helped David Hensley honor his dad!

Ladies’ prayer groups are growing in numbers and faithful prayers cover our church families. We thank the Lord for their love for all of us!

My joy has been working with the Heritage Keepers this year. The Bible study every Wednesday morning has been a highlight of my week. The planned trip to the Ark filled the bus in just 48 hours. We are looking forward to Pastor Winston and Miranda hosting the Keepers on Wednesday, May 25th at Lake Julian for a picnic.

Just a sample of the many blessings here at our church!

You are loved,

Pastor Ralph Sexton

In life there are people who just can’t be duplicated or emulated. They are a special breed, a once in a lifetime relationship or  acquaintance.  For me, Tim Lee is one of those few men.  I’ve known Tim all my life and I’ve always seen him as a hero, a soldier, a real life John Wayne and a preacher. I mean no disrespect in that, as a child I thought John Wayne was the toughest man to ever breathe air.

Every time I’ve ever been around Tim he has been the same.  He is consistent in his concern, loving in his tone and always ready to share Jesus with anyone willing to listen.  Even in the midst of great family tragedy during the untimely passing of his Granddaughter, Ally, Tim, Connie and the entire Lee Family stood strong in their Faith and continued on for Christ in the face of great loss.

Dr. Tim Lee is a war hero, a Purple Heart recipient, a husband, a father, a grandfather and a friend. He’s a Bible preaching lover of the truth. Tim paid a high premium for freedom and he’s willing to tell the story for God’s Glory.

Today, Miranda and I are honored to host A man who has made a difference, my good friend, Dr. Tim Lee.

On March the 20th, Trinity will host   a very special Sunday for all of our friends, family members and acquaintances as we come together to celebrate “Friend Sunday”!

This will be a wonderful opportunity for you to invite as many people as you can to be your guest on that day. Each ministry will be providing invitations for you to hand-out through February and March. Our desire is to reach into our community to the people we know and make a concerted effort to invite them to be with us at Trinity.

We will have extra seating that day as well as information about who we are at Trinity Baptist Church.  We will have a special gift for each guest as well as a gift for each person who brings a first time visitor. Children, teens, adults and Heritage Keepers are encouraged to invite people to church on that Sunday. Our focus that day will be a message of hope and of truth, pointing each person in the building to Jesus!

Start thinking and praying about who you can invite now!  Who do you know that needs to hear the good news of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ? Invite them!

P.S. On Wednesday, March 3, at both morning and evening services, we will have a special equipping seminar on, “How to invite someone to church and How to strike up a gospel conversation”

In the Bible we find that Jesus Christ made His point clearly:  One day He will return—and not one human being on earth knows when that will be.  Religious fanatics make wild claims of having knowledge of the specifics of the Second Coming of the Lord.  These fanatics are causing many Christians to ignore or shy away from the good news that Jesus is coming again.

God’s Word commands us to know the signs of the times, to remain watchful, and to be ready for the coming of Christ.  The perilous times of the day, the wars and rumors of wars, the unification of world religions and the ever-growing desire for global currency leaves the child of God a “trail of breadcrumbs” that points to the fact that any moment Jesus could come, and the fact is, one day He will.

We are excited to announce a special effort to travel to Europe and the Middle East to teach and preach on location. This is a straightforward, in-depth exploration of the key biblical texts regarding the Second Coming, following Scripture, and observing current global tensions in a post 1948 World where Israel is alive and well, ever striking the pendulum of prophetic motion towards the second coming.

As we study what the Word of God says about end times, it will stir your heart with a deep desire for Christ’s return.  As we hold fast to the truth, we will be blatantly reminded by the events of the day to live expectantly until He comes again for His bride!  Join Dr. Ralph Sexton and Pastor Winston Parrish for Operation SkyWatch—
