August Mission for Trinity:  LWML mission grant #12 Completion of Lukonda Lutheran School Buildings, Uganda will provide a safe and sheltered place for the children to learn that Jesus loves them and provides for their needs. Through our mites and prayers we can make completion of these school buildings a reality. The church leaders have done so much already to the benefit of these children. This grant will complete Phase II of construction of two schools in Kayunga District, Uganda. Between 100 and 200 children, ages 4 to 12, will be educated in these schools. It is time to finish the school. Learn more at: This collection will take place on Sunday, August 12.


Note From The Congregational Presidents:  As we work through our vacancy we will be having joint church services.  Time for services will be 9 am with Bible Class held after at the church where service is held.  The reason for holding joint services is to make it easier for the Pastors who are taking time to help us.  We encourage all of our members to make a special effort to attend all services in whatever church.  Everyone’s support is needed as we go through this vacancy with God leading us.


The Trinity LWML is having an Ingathering of school supplies for “Back to School Drive” which will be to help provide school supplies for children who are unable to purchase all the items they need. We will be providing school supplies for Immanuel Lutheran School in Lakefield. You can help by placing items in the designated “Back to School Drive” Box located in the narthex. A list of items needed is displayed by the box. Supplies will be collected until Sunday, August 26th. Thank you for your support.

ADULT BIBLE STUDY:  For the present time in vacancy, Adult Bible Study will be held every week after Worship at the Church where services are held.  All members of both congregations are welcome to attend every week.  Our study will be going through the new 2017 edition of Luther’s Small Catechism.  This edition features expanded discussion on the current issues of today that need to be met with a solid grounding in God’s Word.  It also maintains its classic teachings of Christian doctrine and the Scriptures they come from.  It will be an interesting and informative study.  If you want to attend, but don’t yet have a copy of the new 2017 edition, please let Denny Stahly know so we can get one ordered for you.
