The Altar Guild will clean & polish the altar ware and furnishings on Saturday, March 19 at 9:00 a.m. Cleaning supplies will be furnished. This event is open to all members of the congregation who wish to help with this important project.

The main doors for the church will now be locked from 8:30am to 3:30pm on Monday thru Thursday due to preschool. We are installing a door bell if you need entry and don't have a key. The door bell is on the side of the door, not on the wall.


Trinity has established a Christian Care fund to help people in our communities who are in need. Our Thanksgiving offering will be used to fund this account (use your Thanksgiving envelope). You may also give to the fund at any time simply use one of the Christian Care Fund envelopes on the narthex table. Any member of Trinity may request a gift for anyone in need. Find forms for requests on the Narthex table.

 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 office is still looking for information on the following people on the prayer list. Suffering from Cancer: Al Davis; Cheryl Harper; Dale Kirk; Gary McCraken; Grace Weese; Mike Rollings; Please drop a note in the office.

 Randy Nemitz will be at the Mayo Clinic as of February 23 to begin Stem Cell Replacement. This will be at least a 6 week process. The address where mail can be sent is Erin's House 803 14th St SW, Rochester, MN 55901. He can also receive text messages at 515-921-1920.


LifeLight will not meet on Monday, Feb 22 or Tuesday, Feb 23. LifeLight will resume the following week with lesson 3.

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.
