Theme for Lent Worship Series 2017: “Strong in the Broken Places”
Please join us on Wednesday nights during Lent as we journey with Jesus through the forty days of repentance, prayer, reflection, and challenge. We hear again the ancient stories of what happens to God's love when it encounters our world of distrust, selfishness, and fear. It's a story about Rome's empire, a story about discipleship and sacrifice, a story about our own hearts. We will again enjoy dinner in the spirit of Luther's table talks with homemade soft pretzels, cheese, and veggies. Food is available beginning at 5:30, discussion at 6-ish, and worship at 7.
Call Committee Process Continues
Following the recommendation of the Transition Team, the Trinity Council voted in December to authorize the formation of a Call Committee to call a full time Associate Pastor to join us in ministry. It was decided that a full time ordained pastor would provide the best match for our needs and that our growth over the past several years meant we were in a strong position to take this step. The Call Committee members are: Doug Will, chair; Carrie McPadden, Laurie Jaecks, Carl Krogness, and Katie Lane. They have met with the Bishop's Associate, Rev. Kris Totzke, about the process and will begin their work together. The first step will be to complete a profile of our congregation for candidates to read. Please pray for them during this process which we expect to take some time.
Share Your TLC Photos and Memories
We’re looking for historical photos to be used for our 75th anniversary celebrations. You can drop photos, and other memorabilia in a special box in the church office and we will return them within a few weeks.
You’re Invited … to join Journey Group
Tomorrow evening, March 20, the Journey Group will begin a Bible study based on the book by Episcopal priest Alice Connor, entitled FIERCE: Women of the Bible and their Stories of Violence, Mercy, Bravery, Wisdom, Sex and Salvation.
See these women, not as players in a man’s story – as victims or tempters – nor as morality archetypes, teaching us to be better wives and mothers, but as fierce foremothers of the faith. These women’s stories are messy, challenging and beautiful. When we read their stories, we can see not only their particular, fearsome lives, but also our own.
The group meets on the first and third Mondays, from 6:40 – 8:00 p.m., in the Library. Cost of the book is $10.50 – checks made payable to Trinity. Copies are available in the church office or you can get one at the Journey Group Monday evening.
Did you know? . . .
One of the first auxiliary organizations formed at Trinity were the Gleaners (gleaning in the fields of Christ) – the ladies of Trinity for the Women’s Missionary Federation. During World War II, the Gleaners rolled bandages for the Red Cross. In 1961 this women’s group became the Trinity Lutheran Church Women (TLCW), a part of the new American Lutheran Church Women (ALCW). When Trinity became part of the newly-formed Evangelical Lutheran Church of American, TLCW became Trinity Women of the ELCA (TWELCA).
Games and cookies at Presbyterian Night Shelter – Every Second Tuesday
Our next game night at PNS will be on NEXT Tuesday, April 11. We meet at Trinity at 6:30 p.m., car pool over, and return to Trinity by 8:30. 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.
