Join us on Wednesday, November 22nd at 7:00 pm for a Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service: Vespers. There will not be a service on Thanksgiving Day.
The Trinity Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) will be hosting its annual Christmas Luncheon on Saturday, December 2nd. All women and men are invited! Crafters will begin selling their homemade gift items at 9:00 am. The program “An Inside Look at Military Chaplaincy” by Pastor Rogness will begin at 10:00 am followed by the luncheon meal at 11:00 am. Tickets will be $7 and they will be available in the Narthex on Sundays, November 19 and 26. Childcare will be provided if there is a need. Please contact the church office if you would like childcare so this can be arranged.
Sweatshirts and hoodies for teens aged 12-17 will be collected for Christmas for the Salvation Army. More 2XL and 3XL adult sizes are needed this year. Please consider shopping for these clothing items. Our goal is to collected 100 clothing items. A tag with a Christmas message and Bible verse from luke 2 will be pinned on each item of clothing. The deadline for donating items is Sunday, December 17. Thrivent has also donated $250 toward this project. The items you purchase to donate may be placed on the table by the office. Thank you for sharing your Christmas with the teens through the Salvation Army.
We had an excellent response to our Adopt a Seminary Sunday appeal on Sunday, September 24th. Thank you to everyone who gave a donation. The total collected was $843.00 which was sent directly to him through the seminary to use toward his necessary book purchases. Look for more information to come about other ways we will be supporting Berett and his wife, Carryn, including a special Christmas gift. Thank you!
Beginning January 2018
In January 2018, the Ex Libris study group will begin Rev. K. Preus’ book “Sharing Christ with Family and Friends.” The education focus is to move beyond a simple conversation about Christ to “watering the seed planted” at Baptism. This book is about a man who returned to faith through the witness of his son-in-law. We may all have someone in our family or a friend that we pray will actively return to church. Cost of the book is $7.00.
The Message worth dying for . . . The government tells fifteen-year-old Simon Clay everything he needs to know. Except what really happened to his mom. And why no one can go out at night. And why the Darkness is so dangerous.
By day, Simon pushes against every boundary there is. And by night, secret visitors and hidden messages make him question everything his life entails.
There’s a truth out there to be discovered, a truth the government will stop at nothing to stamp out. Join Simon and the Messengers as they risk their lives to protect it.
Preschool at Trinity t-shirts and sweatshirts are available! All shirts have the Preschool at Trinity logo screen printed on the front. Wear them out and about to help spread the word about our excellent preschool program! Order forms are available in the Kiosk in the Narthex. The order deadline is November 19, 2017. Order forms and payment can be turned into Diane Christensen or Laura Dewey, Secretary.
Thank you for supporting the mission of our preschool!
Members of Trinity Lutheran Church are invited to attend the Communion Service conducted at the Broen Home in the Life Light Chapel on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 10:00 am. Our hope is that those who were attending the 1:00 pm Divine Service will find this as a good alternative. It will also present a wonderful opportunity for our physically limited members at the Broen Home to connect with others within the congregation.
We will no longer be offering the Sunday, 1 pm, Divine Service. We had hoped that providing a service that would enable those who have difficulties attending the 9 am service would increase the number of people who attend Divine Service, however, that has not been the case. The attendance has dropped to the point that it is no longer viable.
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.
