SPIRIT WEAR

Your Trinity Lutheran School store is now available online through November 11! Click picture at left to enter your store.

40+ decorated trunks and sealed bags of candy are still needed for Trinity's Sunday, October 28th Trinity Trunk or Treat from 1-3 pm. Because of this effort, hundreds of our neighbors (many of them non-members) come to Trinity’s campus and we have direct opportunities to share the Gospel of Jesus with them as they see our church, school, and child care. Perhaps you helped in the past (then you know how important it is), or maybe this is your first time (then get ready for some REAL fun).


This year, we are low on sealed candy donations and need your help! Bring any candy to the school office by end of day today, or take it to the church office ASAP.


Dress up and put smiles on kids’ faces by volunteering for this effort. Help is also needed for games, kitchen, and photos. Sign up is easy. Go directly to Trunk or Treat 2018

or contact Jason Scherer at 414-517-8373.


Please invite your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to this event! It’s a great low-key way to welcome them to Trinity and introduce them to our congregation.
