The Annual Altar Committee will meet Oct 27 at 7:30 pm. Anyone interested in serving on the Altar Committee is welcome to attend. No commitment is required.

The Annual Voter's Meeting is today October 25 at 12pm in the Fellowship Hall. We will elect officers and approve the 2016 Budget. There will be a light lunch served just before the Voter's Meeting on October 25th. We hope you will all plan to attend.

Visitors: We do collect offerings during our worship services. While we believe this is a chance for each believer to be a good steward of the gifts they have received from God, we do not expect you to give an offering while you are our guest.

This is a reminder that there are several colors and sizes of Trinity tee shirts that are available to purchase for $10.00. They are located on a bookshelf in the fellowship hall and an envelope is right there too for your convenience of your payment. Thank you.

Preschool Harvest Celebration on Sunday, October 25th @ 6:30 p.m. 

The LCMS Rural and Small Town Ministry national conference will be held in Kansas City, November 5-7, 2015. Pastor Watt will be making a presentation on "Congregational Mergers". You are welcome to attend the conference. Please register at or call 888-463-5127. The cost is $200 per person + lodging. 

Daylight Savings ends Nov 1st. Remember to turn your clocks back before you go to bed.

Finance Teams for 2016 have been completed. A copy has been put in the Narthex book. Everyone was kept almost the same as last year. Please review and if there are changes please let me know for updating. It is noted that July was showing blank last year, for the next year I have volunteered for the month, a volunteer for that month would be appreciated. Thanks to everyone for helping out in 2015 & again for helping in 2016. Cathy D.



Prayer Request pads can be found on the Narthex Table. Please fill out the form and give it to Pastor Watt or place it in the "Prayer Requests" mailbox. Unless otherwise requested prayer request will be repeated for three (3) sundays.

 Thank you so very much for the cards, e-mails, phone calls and Jerry and Velma for bring the papers. Mark Williams is OK and back to work. Marti Williams

Christian Care: Trinity has established a Christian Care fund to help people in our communities who are in need. Our Thanksgiving offering will be used to fund this account (use your Thanksgiving envelope). You may also give to the fund at any time simply use one of the Christian Care Fund envelopes on the narthex table. Any member of Trinity may request a gift for anyone in need. Find forms for requests on the Narthex table.
