2017 Trinity Women’s Retreat at Briarwood
The 5th Annual Trinity Women's Retreat will be held Friday, March 10th to Saturday, March 11th at Briarwood Retreat Center. Our Women's Retreat is open to women 18 and older, and is intended to foster relationships among women of all ages. $65 registration provides lodging, dinner on Friday night, as well as brunch on Saturday. Bring only yourself, bedding, comfortable clothes, and a favorite snack or drink (wine and beer are okay!) to share. Come early or stay a little later for a nap or a hike. Pastor Mohn will lead discussion on Friday night and Saturday morning, otherwise the time is yours! Please sign up in the office (deadline is Sunday, March 5th) and let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
Facility Request Forms Due for 2017
If you or your committee, commission or organization has regularly scheduled meeting times during the year, please complete a new ivory Facilities Request Form (available in Fellowship Hall) and send or bring it in to the church office. Dates for one-time meetings should be turned in as soon as a date is set. Making this information available ensures that: your dates are accurately reflected on the church calendar and the calendar that is published in the Trinity Views; the space you wish to use is reserved; any schedule conflicts can be resolved as soon as possible, and special set-up requirements, such as the arrangement of tables and chairs, can be conveyed clearly and accurately to our custodial staff, in a timely manner.
Even if your group does not meet at the church, it is important to complete this form, so others will know of your group’s meeting date, location and time. New forms each year ensure that the office has up-to-date records of each request. Thanks for your cooperation.
2017 Offering Envelopes
Offering envelopes for 2017 are ready for pick up in the narthex. This is extremely cost effective – rather than mailing them. If there isn’t a booklet with your name on the label, please let us know – drop a note in the offering plate or call the church office.
Special Bible Class
Luther Seminary offers a unique opportunity for laypersons to delve deeper into the Bible without having to go to Minnesota. Every Monday, February 6 - March 6, at 7 p.m., Trinity Lutheran will be streaming live the class "Empire and the Old Testament" in the Fellowship Hall. The following is the class description:
Nearly all the books of the Bible came into being when the land of Judah was under some form of imperial domination. The political, social and economic realities of imperialism affected all aspects of life in ancient Israel, including religious observance and the production of texts. In this course we will use “empire” as a guiding concept for reading and interpreting the Old Testament. We will review the ancient political powers that held sway over Israel and Judah, and explore how those imperial pressures are reflected in both the style and content of biblical texts. Finally, we will compare and contrast ancient and modern empires, reflecting on how the Bible has been used both to justify and to resist modern imperial projects.
For more information contact Pastor Mohn or Larry Kemp (817-681-8302).
Come and Go Baby Shower
Trinity is hosting a "Come and Go" baby shower today, from Noon to 2:00pm, for Giselle Katembera and Elie Chihebeyi. As refugees, they were not able to bring much with them and we have the opportunity to provide the items they will need for this new baby boy.
Quilting for Lutheran World Relief
The quilters meet at 10 o’clock on the 3rd Saturday of each month, in the Fellowship Hall. They will meet this month on Saturday, January 21. Quilts are sent to Lutheran World Relief, which are then distributed to refugees around the world. Our quilts are pretty basic and simple, and do not require great skill as a seamstress (or tailor!), but they are a palpable and useful sign that we recognize the plight of the refugee or refugee family who receives this gift. Come join us! There is lots of fabric available, space for cutting out, laying out, sewing, applying batting and binding. And, we have a good time together, too!
