 CALL COMMITTEE  The Call Committee met on Sunday, January 6th, to discuss the list of potential interim pastors that the district provided.  As Brent Garner mentioned last month, we were not pleased with the list as we felt it did not address the needs of the church and some of the pastors were still actively serving other churches.  The committee decided to forgo the search for an interim pastor and instead move forward with a search for a full time pastor.  The committee wants to hear your voice!  If you are aware of a pastor that you think would be a good fit for our church, please see a member of the committee (names below).  They will give you a nomination form to complete and give to Casey Bolte (or place in her box in the Narthex).  Nomination forms are due to Casey Bolte by Friday, January 18th.  Casey will email the nominations to the district the next day so please don't be late!  You can also get a nomination form from the church office.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a committee member:

With this One, His Son veiled in frail human flesh, the heart of Almighty God is well-pleased (Luke 3:22). Through the same Jesus Christ, He creates, redeems, and calls (Isaiah 43:1-2) every member of our race to be His own beloved child. Since He stands in our place, even our sicknesses and sorrows do not represent punishments but rather opportunities for Him to shower blessing.

LIFE QUOTES  “If God places such high value on life—all life (John 3:16)—how can we possibly be less concerned? We do love others because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). We speak up for those who cannot speak for them-selves (Proverbs 31:8) because when we had no voice, no standing, no defense, Jesus stepped in on our behalf. There is no way we can be less loving.” Christian Life Resources --If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website: www.lutheransforlife.org

SR. HIGH LINKT RETREAT – FEB 15-17TH Attention Sr High Youth, your LinkT Retreat is right around the corner! This is great weekend of worship, crazy games and adventures, and deep dives into faith. We will leave around 5pm that Friday and be back around 4pm that Sunday. Cost is $50 a student to help cover food, registration, and travel. Deadline for sign up is Sunday, January 13th.

JAN 20TH UNITY SUNDAY AND HTY CAFE  Reminder of the upcoming Unity Sunday and HTY Café. The youth are deep into National Youth Gathering mode and invite you to a meal they will prepare and serve. This month there will be a Balsamic Pork Loin roast with roasted carrots and rice. The other option will be Chicken Alfredo. All proceeds support our youth and their trip to the NYG.

YOUTH SKI TRIP – JAN 26TH Attention Jr and Sr High. Sign up for our trip to Snow Creek in Missouri for a Saturday of skiing/snowboarding. Open to beginners and veterans alike and there will be lessons available for people who are new to the sport. We will leave early that morning and be back in the evening after 7 most likely. We are also looking for chaperones, let Cameron know if you are interested. Cost is $30 to help cover rental and travel.

CHRISTMAS CARDS  Please remember to donate your Christmas cards to mission crafts after the holidays.  There is a bin in the Narthex where you can leave them.  Thank you so much.

 2019 DIRECTORY  Preparations are underway for the next edition of the Holy Trinity Directory.  Letters have been placed in the Narthex mailboxes requesting updates to the existing information in our database.  We have combined family member letters when possible.  To facilitate updates, there is a collection box in the Narthex titled “Database Updates.”

 CELEBRATION  On the 19th of this month, FRANK HUNDRISER will celebrate his 100th Birthday.  Frank  is usually seen attending first service, so we will have cake & coffee in the narthex next Sunday(20th) after the first service. How about placing a Happy Birthday card in his mailbox.   I'm sure he would enjoy hearing from his spiritual family.
