We recall God’s Word in Romans 8:35-39 as we take heart that tribulation, distress, nor anything is all creation can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Widespread devastation from flooding has ravaged our communities in and around Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Countless people and families have been displaced from their homes and some have lost everything. Here at Trinity, BRLS, and TLCDC 175 of our church, school and CDC families and staff have been hit by flood waters.
In the aftermath of tragedy the people of South Louisiana are banding together with selfless service and loving actions that testify to the strength and resilience of our communities. We look forward to the great things that God has planned as he can work all things together for good (Romans 8:28). Here at Trinity we have set up Camp Rstore Baton Rouge to help the poeple of this city recover from the devestation of the flood.
