Christian Care Fund:  See the insert for more information on Trinity's Christian Care Fund.  Please consider submitting a request for someone you know who needs financial assistance.

Building Healthy Families: Throughout the coming week of solemn worship and reverent contemplation, as you hear again the account of Jesus’ last days, remember that each step, each action, each spoken word, was for you. You are indeed that priceless to Him. Make a conscious choice to set aside your worries and fears for this week. Replace them with an awareness of His love, not globally for the whole world, but personally for you. Lutheran Family Service of Iowa (515-251-4900) 

Life Quote: “How very important for Christian mothers and fathers to raise their children in the Lord, not only that they might gain saving faith, but also that they might use their gifts and talents for service in God’s kingdom and for the glory of His holy name.” Rev. Mark Gullerud, Redeemer Lutheran Church, Bowdle, South Dakota – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life · www.lutheransforlife.org
