September 24, 2017– Books Needed for Study
At their March meeting, the Church Council approved Trinity to adopt a seminary student. We have chosen to support a student from Willmar, MN. Our student’s name is Berett Steffer from Redeemer Lutheran, Willmar, MN. Monetary donations will be received for books on Sunday, September 24.

Ex Libris Theologicis (the fun class with the intimidating name) will begin meeting again on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm beginning September 18. At our first two meetings of Ex Libris we will read and discuss a small monograph, A Simple Way to Pray, so that at the first meeting we can decide which book we’d like to read and discuss and get them ordered. Here are some of the suggested texts – Has American Christianity Failed? By Wolfmueller, Being Lutheran by Sutton, Dying to Live by Senkbeil, The Hammer of God by Goertz, The Case for Faith by Strobel, The Defense Never Rests by Parton, and The Spirituality of the Cross by Veith.
Young adults (20 and 30 year olds), join Pastor Rogness the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at 6:30 pm for a more casual study at restaurants around Fergus. The study will engage the daily life of the Christian. We will meet at Dining Car #423 located at 423 S. Cascade Street on September 14th.
On Wednesday, September 13th at 10:00 am Pastor Christensen will begin a Bible Study on “Faces of the Reformation” looking at the various men and women who were passionate about the Reformation rediscovery of the Gospel (either for or against it). In these studies we will see how the Word of the Lord had the final word in bringing the “it’s still all about Jesus” proclamation to the world. Come for one session or all of them, as each is designed to be done as a “stand alone” study.
