Members of Trinity. It is our great privilege to pray for people you know in the community, part of our role as a "Kingdom of Priests". Please email the church office if you have added someone to the prayer list or have an update on a person on the list. We would like to keep better track of where the requests have come from so we can follow up. Thanks. Pastor.

The fundraiser that we'll be having for the Life Care Clinic is set for Saturday, April 23rd here at Trinity in the fellowship hall. Hours are 10-2 with a light lunch from 11:00 - 12:30. This will be a free will offering. A silent auction from 10-2 will consist of baked items and theme baskets, which we would encourage all of you to be a part of. Examples of some of the themes could be: garden/yard; fishing; fitness; scrapbook; camping; sewing; beauty; wine; Christian; grilling; kids; sports. The dollar amount for items to put into the baskets is $20.00-$25.00. We would encourage our members to take this back to your co-workers and get them excited about sponsoring a basket. There are many other themes that could be considered. Let's make this a really fun event with lots of baskets. Other churches will be involved too. David Paul Britton will be with us during this event to grace us with his beautiful Christian music and share the love of Jesus. Mr. Britton will be with us on Sunday, the 24th to provide music during the service as well. If there are any questions please talk to any member of the Mission Board. The monies taken in will go to the Lc Clinic general fund.

Hope to see you at the Missions Banquet at St Paul, Carroll next Sunday, the 13th, 5-7 pm. A great way to be encouraged and get ideas for local mission outreach.  Go to to register.

Music students from Mount Ayr are having a fund raising dinner at Trinity Lutheran Church in Mount Ayr on Saturday March 5.  It runs from 5:00 PM - 8:00PM.  Menu is pork loin, green beans, potato bar, and dinner roll.  Byanca Smith, Josh Cox and Kaley Adams are touring Europe this summer with the Iowa Ambassadors of Music.  They need help with expenses.  Your attendance would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.
