Witness
  • "Cans for Cancer": Everyone has been touched by cancer whether directly or indirectly. We pray for many every week of the year. Let's work together to do something in addition to our prayers! Start saving your pop cans (any cans as long as they are worth a nickel and rinsed out.) We'll have a container at both locations and collect cans through June15 with funds being donated to Relay for Life. The night of Relay for Life (June 17) we would like to have some fellowship time with a table set up at the event here in Creston with Trinity information, snacks, etc. and support those we know as they take the first survivor lap. Save that date! Watch for more information as we begin the new year. In the mean time.... save those cans! Julie Lang 
  • FAITH’N’FAMILY on your Lutheran Radio Station Worldwide KFUO.org. Join us as we discuss issues associated with transgender students this Wednesday, January 20 @ 10am Central Time, with special guests Dr. Michelle Cretella, Dr. Jane Orient, and Rev. Dr. Bob Weise. Archived at KFUO.org . Follow us on Facebook.com/KFUOradio.
  • LifeLight Bible Study will begin Monday, Feb 8 at 6:30p.m. and Tuesday, Feb 9 at 1:00 p.m. We will begin study of the book of Romans, Part One. In 1552 Dr. Luther wrote this about the book of Romans: “This Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, …. It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes.”
