In 1552 Dr. Luther wrote this about the book of Romans: “This epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel,…..It can never by read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes.”


Materials are ready for you on the table in the Narthex.


The same material is presented twice each week. You may attend either the Monday or the Tuesday class. The lesson is the same.

For study materials contact Janette Lang.

Early Risers will resume on Tuesday, September 13 at 6:30 a.m. We will begin with reading and discussion of the book of Esther. You are welcome to join us either regularly or occasionally.

Youth Confirmation classes will begin on Wednesday, September 14 with a meeting for parents and students. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall.

The annual LWML Fall Rally is scheduled for Saturday, October 22 at St. Paul, Clarinda, Iowa. Registration is at 9:30 a.m., with Eileen Westrum being the guest speaker. She has been on 17+ mission trips and will be sharing her experiences. A salad luncheon will follow. The cost for the registration is still to be determined


The large LWML mite box will be located in the back of the sanctuary the whole month of September and also the first Sunday of October, which is when LWML Sunday will be observed. On October 2, there will be a special service, “Come and See”, which it the theme for this year’s LWML Sunday. Some of the ladies of Trinity will be participating and will also be serving baked goods during the fellowship hour. A bake sale and craft sale will be taking place during this time as well, with all monies taken in to go for MITES. Last year we were blessed with over $400 from our MITE offering. All Trinity ladies (Creston and Mt. Ayr) are encouraged to participate. A sign up sheet will be put out on the table in the narthex for everyone to list your favorite muffins, coffee cakes, breads, cinnamon rolls, pies, etc. to make for selling/serving. Of course, the bake sale is not just limited to baked items. Jams, jellies, etc. would be encouraged, too. There is still time to be making your favorite craft items. We hope this year’s event will be even bigger and better than last year’s! If there are ay questions, you can talk with Maggie Dory.
