TODAY (APRIL 9) IS THE LAST DAY to order flowers for Creston’s Easter Garden. Please complete and submit the enclosed form today to have the Altar Guild order flowers for you.

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to submit the enclosed form to ensure that your name is included in the Easter Sunday bulletin if you are bringing your own flowers. If you are bringing your own flowers, please have them at the church no later than Friday, April 14.

Thank you for your participation in the Easter Garden!

EASTER BREAKFAST ROLLS: If you would be able to help by providing some rolls for the Easter breakfast, there is a sign up sheet on the table in the narthex. The youth group thanks you for your support.

A BIRTHDAY PARTY: Everyone is invited to attend a birthday party for Bertha Jensen's 98th birthday on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 3:00 pm in the activity room of the Crest Haven Care Centre, 1000 E. Howard Street. She would prefer no gifts-just come out to celebrate her many years of God's blessings on her life and have a piece of cake and ice cream. If anyone has any questions contact Dave or Maggie Dory.

NAOMI CIRCLE will meet this Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Our topic will be “Changeless” This study is found on page 16 of the Spring 2017 Quarterly. Please join us for Bible study and fellowship .

GRAUATION OPEN HOUSE INVITATION: The congregation is invited to a graduation open house for Alex Brown. It will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 1:00-3:00. It will be held in the Fellowship Hall at Trinity Lutheran Church, Creston. An announcement is posted on the bulletin board outside the secretary’s office.

RECEPTION FOR GRADUATES: “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” (or have been): Sunday, May 7 right after Divine Service in Creston

The Board of Education will recognize five Creston and East Union high school graduates on this day (Alex Brown, Devon Peterson, Cali Foglesong, Kessler Tomas, and Allison Hadley). Because we’ve been a little lax in recognizing some past college graduates, we’re also going to try and have a reunion of sorts for past (or current) members who have graduated from college within the past 10 years or so. We’d like to know where our younger members are these days. We’d love to invite any young people to attend but if they can’t we’d like to get a little bio from them and put together a bulletin insert for the day. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Lang.

BABY SHOWER: A baby shower will be held on Sunday May 7, 2017 at 1pm, in the fellowship hall (CR) for Kayla (Davidson) Brown.

Everyone is invited and welcome to attend!

There is an actual invitation posted in the entry way by the secretary's office.


Trinity Preschool is now registering students for the 2017-2018 school year.

Invite them to contact the preschool teachers, Mrs. Brown or Mrs. Cook, for more information. The preschool phone number is 782-5095 Ext. 2.

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. All members are invited to go along.
