Lent has Begun
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.
Mid-Week Worship Service; 7:00pm
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.
Lenten Discussion Group with Pastor Mohn
Why was the Bible written in Greek? Who decided what books made it into the New Testament? How does Rome fit into all this anyway; isn't that far away from Jerusalem?
Please join Pastor Mohn in Lent for a discussion of these questions, as well as many more. We will meet Wednesday nights at 6:00 on March 19, 26, April 2, and April 9. (Please note this group will not meet the first Wednesday in Lent, March 12.)
This discussion will draw directly on Pastor Mohn's studies at Brite Divinity School, and use a book written by her professor, Dr. Warren Carter, called Seven Events that Shaped the New Testament World. Books are available in the office; cost is $15. These discussions will also include pictures and reflection from Pastor Mohn's time in Turkey. Everyone is welcome.
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.
Special Lenten Adult Education Opportunity
During the season of Lent, you are invited to join in a conversation about the meaning of Jesus' crucifixion, the cross and the distinctive Lutheran understanding of the "Theology of the Cross". This conversation will take place at a table in the Fellowship Hall and will be led by Karen Handley and Don Strickland during the education time. Please feel free to join them.
All other classes will be taking place as well. Thanks to Bob Mansfield for leading the Library Bible Study, Pastor Mohn the Upstairs Discussion Group and Pastor G for McSunday School.
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.
Pastor Phil Geleske and Briarwood Staff Visiting Today at 10:30am
Briarwood Executive Director Phil Geleske and members of his staff are visiting Trinity during the 10:30am Worship today. 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.
Time for Another Blood Drive – NEXT 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.
“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, next 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).
Second Saturday Workday
Landscaping has begun. This includes putting in borders for beds, removing some older plants, pruning others and ultimately doing some planting. The goal is 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, April 12 at 8:00 a.m. as we continue our preparations!
Order your Easter Lily TODAY!
You have the opportunity help beautify our sanctuary on Easter morning, by purchasing one or more Easter lily plants. The cost is $15.00 each. If you wish, they may be used for memorials and/or honorariums. There is a sign-up sheet and payment box IN THE NARTHEX. You are welcome to call the church office and we’ll add your name to the list; then you may mail in your check, if you prefer. Deadline for ordering your Easter Lily is Monday, April 7.
First Communion Instruction
Has your child been inquiring about Communion? Asking why they receive a blessing and not the bread and cup? Perhaps it is time for them to undergo preparation for and receive their first communion.
Requirements: attendance at a session on Sunday, April 13, after 10:30 a.m. worship. A parent/guardian must attend with the learner. Pizza lunch is provided. If you are planning to attend the session, please RSVP to Pastor Gronberg at the church office. First Communion is offered on Maundy Thursday, April 17 at 7:00 p.m. worship service.
