March 1st: PreK-8 Grade sings at both services for Trinity Lutheran School Sunday

All TLS Grades will be singing at the 8:15 AM and 10:45 AM services. In between services, enjoy light refreshments, TLS information, and classroom displays in the gym. This would be a great weekend to invite family, friends, and acquaintances to check out our church and school. We depend on your personal recommendations to help spread the news about our school.

Trinity Teen Sunday—WE NEED YOU! Sunday,

March 1, 8:15-9:15am and 10:45-11:45am

A spring tradition continues as we will once again have a Sunday reserved for us. Members of the Youth Group are encouraged to take an active part in worship service. We do this for several reasons:

  1. As confirmed or near-confirmed members of the body of Christ, we are invited to regularly serve in God’s house.
  2. We are thankful! We want to show our thanks to the members of Trinity through these kinds of acts of service.
  3. We want to share our gifts! God invites all of his children to share their gifts for his glory—why not do it through helping others worship!?!

This Sunday is also going to be Trinity Lutheran School Sunday, so the TLS students will be singing at both services. There is also a confirmation/youth rally planning meeting in the sanctuary between services at 9:40am. With everything happening on Sunday, there’s many good reasons your teen can help serve!

In order to make Teen Sunday a roaring success, WE NEED YOU! RSVP to with your teen’s preferred area of service on Sunday morning—ushering or serving at fellowship hour—and indicate which service you can help with; i.e. 8:15, 10:45 or both (preferred).

Grades 3-5 Sings at the 3:45 Lent service on March 4th.

This year we find ourselves ahead of the game, with our chosen games being approved already. The Pittsburg package that we have chosen, comes with the need for even more volunteers this year. The Pittsburg package positions us with what I believe to be a win/win for Trinity. First, most of our games this year fall on either a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Second, this package rewards us a successful completion bonus of $3000. With the minimum requirement of volunteers being greater this year, I believe that our earning potential will be greater this year also. Our group should be in bigger stands (hopefully no more Market places, or Taco stands).
