If interested please contact Cameron for more info.   NOTE:  If we cannot fill this role TODAY  Sunday School will have to be on hiatus for the summer.

Full payment is due by July 3rd and checks need to be made payable to Shirley Bernthal. Questions can be directed to Pat Rader or Shirley Bernthal.



Vacation Bible School is an incredible ministry here at Holy Trinity. Last year we had 50 children at our VBS, with well over half not being members of this Church. VBS is a tremendous way to reach out into our community and reach some people with the Gospel. In order to do this, we need your help. Each position is pivotal in making our VBS the best it can be from Crew Leaders to Snack Makers. Please visit our table in the Narthex, check out some of the positions that are open and speak to Cameron, Cathy, or Eric about being a volunteer and helping us reach out into our community.


First, what is the bosom of Abraham, since it cannot be a natural bosom that is meant? To answer this, it is necessary to know that the soul or Spirit of man has no rest or place where it may abide, except the Word of God, until he comes at the last day to the clear vision of God. Therefore we conclude that the bosom of Abraham signifies nothing else than the Word of God, where Christ was promised. (Genesis 22:18 to Abraham, namely: “In thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.”)

(Church Postils, Trinity 1)

LIFE QUOTES  “Children, vulnerable and dependent, desperately need security, and it has ever been a duty and a joy of fatherhood to offer it. Being a Father requires strength…and more than a little courage…to persevere. To fight discouragement, and to keep working for the family…With God’s grace, fathers find the patience to teach, the fortitude to provide, the compassion to comfort, and the mercy to forgive. All of this is to say that they find the strength to love their wives and children selflessly. Let us expressour thanks and affection to our fathers, whether we can do so in person or in prayer.” President Ronald Reagan, Father’s Day 1988-A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life-  If you wish to support this group, go to their web site : www.lutherans for life.org

TO THINK ABOUT    “It’s a great joy but no test of love or commitment to take your son to a ball game.  You really prove your credentials as a good dad when you are willing to take your daughter shopping – more than once.
