Fourteenth Week after Pentecost


September 14 & 15, 2019


Welcome in the name of the Lord!  We trust that if you are seeking Christ, you will find him here; if troubled in spirit, you will gain peace; if discouraged, you will rejoice in hope; if friendless, find companionship and Christian love; that these and other blessings may be your portion is our prayer.

This Sunday, September 15th there will be a gratitude reception for Pastor Prehn in Fellowship Hall, following the 9:30 service. Please join us to celebrate and say thank you to Pastor Prehn!  We thank Pastor Roger Prehn for all he has done in his ministry at Trinity during the two times he has served our congregation. We thank his dear wife Andrea for her willingness to share him with us and for her warm and loving presence among us. We wish them a fun, relaxing and fulfilling retirement together. They are truly loved and will be missed by all of us.


We celebrate with Arisa "Peak" Sherry as she receives her First Communion on Sunday.  May Christ be her way, her truth, and her life.  We pray that through this bread and wine she will be strengthened in her faith as she serves God's people in word and deed.


Choir and Handbell rehearsals have resumed on Wednesday evenings.  New members are always welcome!  If you would like to sing or ring this year, please contact Cantor Larson.
