WELCA endorses “Paige’s Project”: Paige Proeger is a 10 year old who attends our Trinity.  She is going to go to the Children's Hospitals in Orlando and to our local hospitals and present hospitalized children, especially those with cancer, with gifts of stuffed animals, coloring books, crayons, books and God's eyes that she is making for all of the children.  A $250 Thrivent Grant is helping her financially with this project. Paige has been dealing with medical problems herself requiring her to be hospitalized, and she wants other hospitalized children to know other people care about them. She has a special interest in those with cancer because her father lost a close friend to cancer, and her family donates to the Cancer Society every year in memory of him. If anyone is interested in purchasing any items for her project, you can leave them in the Fellowship Hall with Paige’s name on them.  Monetary donations are also accepted and can be placed in the offering with Paige’s name on the envelope.  She would like to thank everyone for their support. It means a lot to her. If you have any questions, please contact Paige or her grandmother, Judy Driesbaugh at (570) 650-3478.


New Members Class:  Classes for anyone interested in joining Trinity Lutheran Church,  or just wanting to know more about the Lutheran Church, is invited to three classes to be held in September after worship on Sunday. The dates are September 9, 16, and 23.  New members will be received into our congregation on Sunday, September 30.  Please call the church office or speak with Pastor Prehn if you are interested.

Commemorations for the Week


Thursday, August 20     Bernard     Bernard, a Cistercian monk, was a man of great spirituality who wrote mystical works and criticized those whom he thought took an overly intellectual approach to the faith. He became an abbot, and wrote several hymns that are still beloved today.


Friday, August 24     Bartholomew, Apostle     Mentioned as one of Jesus' disciples in Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Bartholomew's name is replaced in John's gospel by Nathanael, leading many to believe that the two are different names for the same person. Little is known about his work, though some traditions place him later in India or Armenia.


Next weekend’s readings: Joshua 24:1-2a, 14-18; Ps 34:15-22; Eph 6:10-20; John 6:56-69.




God bless you and have a safe weekend.
