Cleaning the Sanctuary; With the completion of the Air Conditioning project this week, help is needed to clean the Balcony, Worship Area and Narthex after the Palm Sunday Service on March 25th During the repair process, quite a mess has accumulted – too much for one or two people to restore order before Easter Week when we have services at some point every day or evening. We’ll have some soup and sandwiches for lunch in Memorial Hall

How does Trinity see itself as a welcoming church community to those who may believe they are not welcome at church—specifically the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) people? In the next month, RIC exploratory group members will individually study the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) program to address that question. After that, we will plan specific ways by which we can communicate what we have learned with the congregation and will envision what the program may look like for Trinity Lutheran Church. Our goal is to help the congregation make an informed decision whether to become a rostered RIC community.
Congregational members are welcome to check out www.reconcilingworks.org to become more aware about RIC. Learn with us! Our next meeting will be held on Saturday, February 10th at 10am in Memorial Hall. If you would like to participate in the study, please come and join us!
After the Council Installation at the Contemporary Worship Service, Council met to elect their officers. The twelve members of the new Council voted to ask Judy Conrad to remain in the position of President for another year in order to ease the transition for Pastor David Eisenhuth. They also voted to return the Executive Team to four voting members, creating a position of Assistant Treasurer to our permanent but non voting member, Inge Dudda. Craig Fentress was elected President Elect and will assume the role of President in 2019. Sam Young was reelected as Vice President. Lauren Rowe was elected Secretary and Junior Michael will be Assistant Treasurer. We hope that this will assure a smooth transition and an experienced Exec Team in the future. Please welcome the new members of Council and keep them in your thoughts and Prayers as we endeavor to make good decisions for Trinity Lutheran Church. If you have any questions, ideas or concerns, please speak to one of them and share your thoughts. At our January meeting, new Council Liaisons volunteered to work with the existing Teams already functioning here at Trinity.
