King Hezekiah had something to celebrate! It was so big and so important that he wanted everybody in the country to celebrate with him. He sent messengers throughout the country and into Samaria to invite them to come to celebrate the Passover. It had been a long time, but Hezekiah wanted God’s people to come back to worship God.
Sadly, most of people he invited laughed at the messengers and ridiculed them. But a few listened and came to God’s house in Jerusalem.
Things haven’t changed much, have they? We have something big and important to celebrate, too. We worship God, who created the universe and who stepped into our world to sacrifice his life to rescue us. That’s big! We invite people to celebrate with us. And, still, most people laugh and disregard the invitation.
But, some listen and return to God’s house. So, we keep inviting and we keep celebrating and we keep coming to God’s house.
We don’t come because we are worthy. We come because God invites us by grace. That hasn’t changed either. King Hezekiah, the priests, the Levites, the people from Asher, Manasseh, and Zebulun all came by grace, just like us. We’ve all broken God’s laws, but God heals us.
So, we worship the Lord our God with all hearts, with all our souls and with all our strength.

Through a generous donor and the PTO, we will be providing a FREE t-shirt to all TLS students this year. These shirts are great to wear out in the public to make others aware of our school and to wear on field trips!
If you would like to donate funds to support the PTO costs, please send that donation to the office as well. Any donations will go toward extra shirts for new incoming students that would arrive at a later date. Checks should be made out to Trinity PTO.
We would like to thank the generous donor and the PTO.
Any questions should be directed to Mrs. Mathey or
Amy Peterson, PTO President.
