JUNE 11TH, 2017


THANK YOU  For the generous donation to the food pantry last week. It is much appreciated as our requests for assistance will be increasing with the summer months !


A SPECIAL NOTE FROM OUR OFFICE MANAGER:   To all members of Holy Trinity Congregation. I have resigned my position effective June 23rd.  However I will continue to work Mondays and Thursday until my replacement is in place. This was a very difficult decision but right now there are some family situations that will require me helping out more than I can right now with my current job. I want to thank you all for truly making me feel like I was a member of the congregation and for everyone’s kindness towards me. What a great testimony to someone who isn’t a member of your congregation. I have been truly blessed by the job and your friendships and you will always hold a special place in my heart.

SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL Our Sunday School is in need of a couple of awesome people to step up and teach for the summer as soon as possible. Summer Sunday School is relatively easy as attendance ebbs and flows and you can decide how in depth you want to go with each Sunday. If interested please contact Cameron for more info.If we cannot fill this role by June 18th Sunday School will have to be on hiatus for the summer.



Hence by faith in the Word and in his baptism he remains a free man, superior to all laws, because he has through Christ forgiveness of sin, the grace of God, and the Holy Spirit, and governs his entire life accordingly. Through the Holy Spirit, who operates in his heart, he has been quickened into life, and, except as the Spirit by the Word guides and directs him, he does not look for other teaching regarding works and holiness.

(Church Postils, Trinity Sunday)



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.

LIFE QUOTES  “What do we say to women and men crushed in the aftermath of an abortion decision? They are created, redeemed, and called, and therefore NOTHING can separate them from the love of God in Christ Jesus.” *Rev Dr. James I Lamb, Former Director of Lutherans for Life*

The Oldest Computer

The oldest computer can be traced back to Adam and Eve,                 Surprise! Surprise!                                      It was an Apple,                                        But with extremely limited memory. Just 1 byte,                                               Then everything crashed.
