For the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost on July 5, 2020

Zechariah 9:9-12

Romans 7:14-25a

Matthew 11:25-30


       Come to Me, and I Will Give You Rest

25 At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

VISITORS:  We are so glad you joined us today.  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, you are welcome but not expected to give an offering while you are our guest.  If you would like to learn more about the Lord’s ministry here at Trinity please call Pastor Rutz. 

He would love to get acquainted and visit at a time that is convenient for you.     You are also invited to join members in the fellowship hall after the 9:00 service or prior to the 11:00 service for a time of fellowship.


Hymnals:  The hymnals are available again for your use during the service, but for awhile we will continue to print out the entire service in the bulletin, also. 

Attendance Cards: Attendance cards are back in the pew racks.  Visitors and members are asked to fill out an attendance card and to list names of each family member in attendance.  Turn in your card at the back of the church at the end of the service. 

On Sundays when there is Holy Communion please list the names of those who will be communing on the Holy Communion registration side of the card.

If you have moved or your phone number or email address have changed, please note any changes on the attendance card so that we can update our records in the office.


Private Communion Times:   If you would like to take Holy Communion privately, please call Pastor to set up an appointment.

Livestreamed and You Tube Services:   Our services continue to be available via our church website and will be livestreamed and also available, once downloaded, via You Tube.  

Weekly Bulletins, Announcements, and Sermons continue to be available on the church website.


Office Assistant: Linda will be out of the office July 6-8.


Yarn for Preschool:  Trinity Preschool knows a woman who likes to knit/crochet stocking caps and she donated a lot of them to the preschool.  Her supply of yarn has run out and if any of you happen to have some yarn around home that you don’t plan to use and would like to donate it to the preschool, that would be great!  Any color, amount, etc. is appreciated.  If you have any questions contact Joy Brown at 782-5095 Ext. 2



USED PORTALS OF PRAYER  may be placed in the box located below the mailboxes in the narthex. These will be distributed free next summer by the LLL at the Iowa State Fair.  There is a big demand for these. Thank you.


Lc Clinic’s Baby Bottle Boomerang Fundraiser:  Today is the ending date for the Baby Bottle Boomerang.  There’s a basket next to the offering plate, in the back of the church, where the bottles may be placed.   Thank you for your continued prayers and support of the Lc Clinic.
