Graduation Service

Graduation service is this Thursday at 6:30 pm. Have children report to their classrooms by 6:15 pm and then they can be picked up after the service from their classrooms.


On Monday night, Tyler Morgan returned the call to teach at Trinity. He felt the time was not right to leave his current call. He appreciated all those who reached out to him. Please understand that right now there are 80 some schools that are looking for teachers. We are not the only ones who are searching for a teacher. As we know God does answer our prayers just not always in the ways we may expect it. On Tuesday we were notified by District President that there is a wife of a seminary student who is coming back from a year teaching in China that would fit our needs as a one-year assignment so we could continue to call from the field to find the experience we are looking for. After hearing this news Pastor Christie and I emailed the faculty, Board of Education, Elders, and Council and were given the authority by all bodies to request this one-year assignment. I am pleased to announce that this morning President Kolander assigned Mrs. Laura Stienke to us as our new 7th Grade Homeroom and Social Studies Teacher for next school year. It is truly a blessing that in our time of need the Lord provided us with a full staff for next year. Praise the Lord of the Chruch who always provides for his children.

Volunteer Opportunity!!

TLCC and EHP Parents:

New wood chips for our playground area will be arriving on May 31. We are asking for volunteers that night, or Saturday, or Sunday after church services to help disburse the wood chips over the playground areas.

In addition to the labor, we will need around 10 wheel barrows, and plenty of shovels, and metal rakes. If you can help supply these tools, that would also be helpful. Many hands make work light, so if we get a good amount of help Friday night and Saturday morning, we just might be able to get it done by Saturday afternoon.

We will have pizza available Friday night and/or Saturday noon; and donuts and bagels Saturday and/or Sunday morning! And of course, plenty of refreshments to keep everyone hydrated!

If you can help, please contact any TLCC staff at 262-547-8522. We will also have a volunteer list set out by the daycare sign-in computer. Or you can contact Joni Stenberg at 414-469-2754 or email at

Scrip News!

With the end of the school year upon us, so comes the end of another successful SCRIP year. In total, rebates of $19,000 were earned, which means about $14,250 towards next year’s tuition between the participating families! Many families have earned over $500 in rebates towards tuition next year – how awesome! Additionally, about $4,500 of the rebates earned stay with Trinity for various improvements.

A few reminders:

· For Scrip Rebates earned: 75% goes towards next year’s tuition, 25% stays with the school.

· Your rebates earned will be applied by the Church Office to your tuition FACTS Management account towards the end of June.

· If you participated in scrip this year, but won’t have a child at Trinity for next year, you can get your portion of the rebate earned back in cash! Rebate checks should be mailed out towards the end of June (this year the checks will be issued by the Church Office).

· Summer scrip - continue to earn rebates and make purchases during the summer! We will try to sell scrip in the entryway off Whiterock Ave. every other week or possibly more. Watch for emails that will go out with anticipated timing. We will try to keep similar cards in stock as during the school year. If you can’t make the time slot up at school, you can email and see if we can work out alternative arrangements.

· If you want to learn more about how scrip works or get signed up to start earning rebates toward future tuition – let us know!

· Help needed! Looking for a few people to get involved with the scrip program for next school year – either behind the scenes with administrative tasks or selling scrip during designated times. Please reach out if you are interested.

Thanks for your support in making this a great Scrip year!
