On Thursday, April 14, 2016, at 6:30 pm, there will be a Congregational Meeting with District President Rev. Turner.  This is a Pastor pre-call meeting to discuss and answer your questions prior to the church receiving a call list.

  Life Together


During the vacancy, the deadline for announcements for Sundays will be on Wednesdays at noon.  This allows us time to prepare the service and to be able to deliver the bulletins to Mt. Ayr earlier in the week.


Until someone sets up computer accounts for Linda Hadley/office assistant, if you need to send an email to the church, please continue to send them to      



On Sunday, April 24, we will not be having a service at the Mt. Ayr location.   We will join together for one Divine Service in Creston as it will be Confirmation Sunday.   That day we will also have special music by Mr. David Paul Britton.    Please note this change in scheduling


                     A NOTE OF THANKS

Thank you for supporting the Jr./Sr. Youth Group.  We appreciate your support for the Valentine’s Dinner and Easter Breakfast.  Thanks for all you have done for us.     

We will be attending the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans from July 14-21, 2016.   We have used all the funds we’ve received to financially support the trip.   Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

                God’s Blessings from the Youth



                            THANK YOU

Frieda Porter and family thank you for all the cards, the friendship chain, and gifts that were sent in celebration of her 100th birthday.  





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.


There is a sign up sheet on the table in the narthex regarding the LC Clinic fundraiser on Saturday, April 23rd.  There is a need for people to help serve the light lunch and to help keep the kitchen area and fellowship hall picked up during this event which is from 10-2.  One doesn't have to commit to the full 4 hours.  We hope you are still thinking of a theme basket to put together.  So far we have a beauty basket, kitchen basket and wine basket.  We also need baked items to sell and bars/cookies to be a part of the free will offering lunch.   We are hoping this will be a really fun event and raise money and awareness for the Life Care Clinic.  Any and all help would be very much appreciated.  If there are any questions please feel free to contact any member of the Mission Board.
