Open your average world history book, and you’ll find but a paragraph or two on the Reformation. The event appears a small drop on the timeline, but the Christian Church knows better.  Since the past is best explored through the people who lived it, meet some of the men and women passionate about the Reformation re-discovery of the Gospel—either for or against it. These iconic individuals used their unique vocations to create theological and cultural tidal waves beginning in the sixteenth century and continuing today. See how the gracious Word of the Lord had the final word in bringing the “It’s still all about Jesus” proclamation to the corners of Europe and beyond.

To commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation here at Trinity, you will see weekly information about some of the key men and women who the Lord worked through to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the forefront.  Also, beginning next Sunday, August 20th at 8:00am Bible Study, we will be studying their contributions. Those classes will run  from August 20 through Reformation Sunday which will be on October 29.


3RD ANNUAL TRINITY MINIATURE GOLF OUTING:    Set aside the afternoon of Sunday, September 24, 2017 for a time of getting together to play miniature golf and having a cook-out with fellow Trinity members.  This will be at that same location south of Afton, as in previous years.   It will begin at 3:00 p.m.  Watch the weekly announcement sheets for more details closer to that day. 





ATTENTION SHOTGUN SHOOTERS!  The 4th Annual LC Open Trap Shoot competition will be held Saturday, September 9th at the High Lakes Outdoor Alliance shooting range.  Anyone 12 years of age or older is invited to participate.  Competitors will be grouped by age and experience.  Some information/registration/rules sheets are available on the table in the narthex this morning.  More sheets can be acquired at the public bulletin boards of Creston Farm & Home, Tractor Supply, and True Value.  

You may call Rick Ramaeker at 782-5264 for more information.  Proceeds will go to the Life Care Clinic, Creston/Stuart. 



MATURA Outreach Center/Food Pantry has a summer need for paper products/toiletries. The following would be very helpful: toothpaste, toilet paper, shampoo, bar soap, laundry soap, paper towels, and Kleenex.   The third Sunday of each month is a day when we gather non-perishable food and/or other items for the Matura pantry.  But, you may bring items any Sunday.   There’s a box next to the top of the stairs in the narthex (at Trinity Creston) where you can place items at any time.   Thank you for your support of this outreach for Union County!    A note thanking us for recent donations to the Matura Food Pantry is posted on the bulletin board outside the office.
