Two More Thursdays
Why is Communion such a big deal? What makes our understanding of it distinct from other groups? What makes us the same? Does a pastor have to preside at Communion? What did Luther say about Communion? And what about Paul? Why do we use wine and others use grape juice? How old do kids have to be to receive? How did the first Christians/early church celebrate Communion? Is it an altar or a table? Does that matter? Is everyone really welcome?
This fall, Pastor Mohn is leading an evening discussion group on Holy Communion. The class will meet from 6:00-7:30 pm in Trinity’s Library on October 23 and 30. It has a similar "feel" to the summer discussion class on the Holy Spirit, with some material presented and then time for reflection and discussion in small and large groups. Topics include biblical and early church foundations, Lutheran understanding, personal experiences, and all the practical stuff.
No experience expected; everyone is welcome!
Four Adult Sunday Classes – Every Sunday!
Every Sunday, there are four different adult classes meeting during the Education Hour, from 9:15-10:15am. They meet in (1) Fellowship Hall (led by Pastor Mohn); (2) Conference Room (led by Karen Handley); (3) Library (following the Augsburg quarterly study guide); and (4) the McSunday School discussion group at McDonald’s. There are also classes for young people, of every age—they meet in classrooms on the third floor.
Reformation Sunday, October 26 – NEXT SUNDAY
Reformation Celebration continues with a Brats & Beer Luncheon, in the Fellowship Hall from Noon - 2pm. Congregational Life invites you to "Rise Up Together” in support of Trinity's Youth, as they raise funds to travel to the 2015 ELCA National Youth Gathering in Detroit.

We hope you will come prepared to invest in the future through Trinity’s Youth Investment Program. Stay tuned for more details on your chance to buy stock in our Trinity Lutheran Youth.

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, and will be eaten happily by residents at the Main Shelter or the Women and Children’s Shelter.
