Messages and Opportunities

WELCOME to historic Trinity Arcadia where we are now in our 137th year of preaching the Gospel and serving the community.

LARGE PRINT copies are available from the ushers.

PREPARING FOR HOLY COMMUNION. Our Lord Jesus expects the baptized who are instructed in the basics of the Christian faith to come to His Table, saying, “Do this in remembrance of Me.” There at His Table he offers us His body with the bread (saying, “This is my body”) and His blood with the wine (saying, “This is my blood”). Lutherans consider this to be a mystery – the word “sacrament” means mystery, and so we do not try to understand or explain this but simply to believe that because He says so His body and blood are “in, with and under” the bread and wine which are also truly there. He offers these precious gifts for our forgiveness, to nourish our lives in Him.

COFFEE “and” in the Fellowship Hall after the service today.  Come down for a cup of coffee and meet old friends and make new ones.

ADULT BIBLE STUDY today at 11:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall with Pastor Metcalf leading an enlightening and thought-provoking examination of the book of Mark.  Stay and learn something new!

ALTAR FLOWERS are placed on the Lord’s Table on February 11 by Karla Woell in celeberation of Stan's 80th birthday.  On February 18, the Steben Family placed altar flowers in memory of Jessica.
