Life Quote: “Maybe you made a New Year’s resolution to read your Bible more. Follow through with that resolution. Make church attendance a priority. Get to Bible class. Take advantage of the opportunities for Christian education that you have for your children … Tell a friend or relative about the great things that God has done for them. Support the work of your congregation with your time, treasures, and talents, so that others might be taught as you are.” From “Meditations,” published by Northwestern Publishing House – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life ·

There will be up pie auction in the Trinity Fellowship Hall on January 31, 2013 for Rheanna Miller. Please watch for more information to come.
