Celebrate Lutheran Schools Week!
Today we celebrate Lutheran Schools Week by welcoming Students and Teachers from Trinity Lutheran Children’s Center into our 10:30am worship. The kids will sing and the teachers will be installed. We are grateful for the amazing ministry that happens each day at TLCC.
Lent Begins THIS Wednesday, March 5
In March, we begin our Lenten journey together, leading to Easter and resurrection. Lent means “spring” and is a time for the springing forth of new life and growth that God brings.
Our Lenten season begins on March 5, with two Ash Wednesday worship service opportunities – at noon (a brief half-hour for those on lunch break) and an evening worship at 7:00 p.m. Both services will include the Imposition of Ashes. Holy Communion is also celebrated during the evening service.
Throughout Lent, there is a Wednesday evening service in the Sanctuary at 7:00 p.m. Worship is preceded by a soup supper provided by our youth, from 5:30-6:45 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. These dinners start on March 12.
Luther 101-Sunday March 16 and 23rd 11:45am-1pm Fellowship Hall
This Lent we are offering two Sunday events focused on learning more about Lutheranism, our heritage, faith convictions and beliefs. We encourage those considering membership, anyone who has joined Trinity in the last few years or anyone who would just like to learn more about who Lutherans are to attend. If possible, please plan to attend both learning times, but if you can only make one, that is fine. A light lunch will be included.
Welcome New Members/Disciples-Sunday, March 30th
We will welcome new Disciples of Jesus into our community on Sunday, March 30th during 10:30am worship. If you or someone you know is interested in officially joining Trinity, please make your intention known to Pastor Gronberg or Pastor Mohn. We also encourage you to attend the Luther 101 education events in March.
First Saturday Workday – Rescheduled to Second Saturday
Because of scheduling issues, we are moving the First Saturday workday to the Second Saturday for the near future. This will enable us to better coordinate and we have some BIG projects coming this month and spring.
It is time to start doing some landscaping. This includes putting in borders for beds, removing some older plants, pruning others and ultimately doing some planting.
The goal will be to have a significant portion of the new plantings in on the Tulsa Way side by Easter Sunday (April 20). To do this, we are going to need your help.
So see you on Saturday, March 8 at 8:00 a.m. as we get going!
Pastor Phil Geleske and Briarwood Staff to Visit Sunday March 9th at 10:30am
Briarwood Executive Director Phil Geleske and members of his staff will be visiting Trinity during the 10:30am Worship. Parents of kids who have completed 1st Grade and up should make it a point to attend and learn more about the Christian Camping ministry of the ELCA in North Texas.
“Turning the Mirror Inward” – Institutionalized Racism: Root Cause of Racial Inequities
This workshop, presented by Joyce James, is a unique opportunity for leaders in the church – through facilitated dialogue and reflection – to analyze the structure and relationships that exist across systems and institutions that contribute to racial inequities. The event, on Saturday, March 15, 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., is hosted by Bethany Lutheran Church (10101 Walnut Hill Lane; Dallas). Registration is $15 per person, which includes lunch.
A more detailed flyer is available in the church office. For more information, please contact Pastor Cheryl Gorvie (214-348-9690) or Pastor Church Hubbard (972-442-6405).
NO Quilting in March
Quilting for Lutheran World Relief will not be held March 8, as previously scheduled, because the Trinity Women’s Retreat at Briarwood will be held March 7-8. Quilting will resume on April 12, 10:00 a.m., in the Fellowship Hall.
Time for another Blood Drive – Sunday, March 16
Carter BloodCare will bring the mobile donation bus to our parking lot on Sunday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to noon. Honor Saint Patrick’s Day by giving a bit of red!!! (I know we generally associate green with St. Patrick – but be exceptional and give red this year.) Each donated unit may help 3 critically ill or injured patients. Donating only takes about 20-25 minutes including paperwork. In order to continue to have the Bloodmobile come to us (which is way more convenient than having to go to one of the donation centers in the Metroplex), we need 9 donors with each blood drive. Be one of the brave, generous, life-giving people who share God’s love and grace with the gift of your own blood!
Games and Cookies at Presbyterian Night Shelter
Our next game night at PNS will be Tuesday, March 18. (Date has been moved to third Tuesday, for just this month because of Spring Break.) We meet at Trinity at 6:30 p.m., car pool over, and return to Trinity by 8:30. Trinity folks, who have participated, enjoy this chance to serve and we need about 6 more people to help out. Please speak to Wally Diehl, Pat Diehl, Linda Perrin or Doug Perrin to learn more about the program.
We also need store-bought cookies each month for this ministry. Labeled packages of cookies can be brought to the church kitchen Sunday, March 9, and will be eaten happily on the 11th by residents at the Main Shelter or the Women and Children’s shelter.
Remember to SPRING F…O…R…W…A…R…D!!!
Daylight Savings Time begins NEXT Sunday, March 9. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.
