SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY: In our 8:00 a.m. Sunday Bible Class we  are studying the topic of Doctrine of Vocation.  This is a topic that applies to all of us at all stages of life on how we serve those who the Lord places in our lives through the various callings and gifts we are blessed with.  It’s not just about your employment career but serving your neighbor in many vocations that Lord has given you to be a blessing to others during your lifetime as a called and redeemed child of God.  All are invited to join us.    Pastor Rutz



VBS DATES      Beginning next Sunday in Creston   

Creston: June 25-29 and Mt. Ayr: July 24-26

It will be held from 6:15pm-8:00 pm.


Please see the sign-up sheet on the table in narthex (Creston) and also in Mt. Ayr to see where you may be of help. 


Flyers are on the table for you to use to invite some child to VBS.   Feel free to take one or more to share.


                          VBS Theme for 2017





















LWML MITE BOX:  The large mite box will be on a table in the back of the church throughout the month of June.  The mites will be used to fund a variety of mission projects that are supported by the work of the LWML.  We thank all who so generously support the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.  And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins (mites), which make a penny.   (Mark 12:42)

MISSION TRIP:   The Mission Board will be traveling to Mission Central in Mapleton, IA on Saturday, July 15, 2017.  Pastor Stephen Oliver and his family from Taiwan  (who we support) will be at Mission Central on that day, and Pastor Oliver will be speaking that afternoon.   Since we are inviting all of Trinity Creston and Mt Ayr to join us, we would like to get a general idea of how many people to expect; how many vehicles we would need for transportation and if you would be willing to drive.    Right now the agenda is to arrive at Mission Central by 10:30 am for a tour of the grounds.  A meal will be served at noon with Pastor Oliver speaking at 1:00 pm.  There is NO charge for this event.  We hope you have already saved the date of July 15th to join us.  A sign up sheet is on the table in the narthex.  Please indicate if you are interested in going and if you would be willing to drive.   If there are any questions, please feel free to contact any member of the Mission Board-Sue Larson, Jean Stoll, Bill Magers, Julie Rutz or Maggie Dory.   

          Thank-You from The Mission Board. 




USED PORTALS OF PRAYERS are needed for free distribution at the Iowa State Fair.

The Lutheran Laymen’s League distributes used Portals of Prayers every year at the Iowa State Fair.  They are able to give away as many as they can get.

Bring your used Portals of Prayer to Trinity, Creston and place them in the box under the mail boxes.

These will be used to share the gospel.
