Messages and Opportunities

TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH welcomes you. We hope you feel at home here where we are in our 137th year of serving our Lord Jesus.

ALTAR FLOWERS are placed on the Lord’s Table today by Virgil & Davina Schneider in honor of Davina’s birthday.

ALTAR FLOWER CALENDAR.  Still a few open dates! Reserve a date to celebrate your special occasion.

We have activity bags for our littlest worshipers. The bags are hanging in the cry room, along with a few books. You are welcome to take them to the pews with you. We just ask that you return them to the cry room at the end of the service.

WE NEED BOTH READERS FOR OUR WORSHIP SERVICE AND HELP FOR THE CHILDREN’S MESSAGE.  Please sign up so we have the joy of sharing as the body of Jesus.

FOOD PANTRY in the hallway needs to be filled regularly for our needy neighbors.  It’s easy to pick up extra items when you shop and bring these with you to church.  Thanks to those that are filling it up!  Let’s keep Trinity’s food pantry full every week in Jesus’ name.
