Boy's C-team Tournament Needs You.



Hello - Trinity is hosting a Boys C Tournament on January 26th! For this to be successful, we need help as there are a multitude of volunteer opportunities for concessions, admission table and scoreboard/book.

The Boys C Team families have already covered about half of the slots already. So we are looking for help from other Trinity families – specifically for concessions and the late afternoon games. We are hopeful that other Trinity Athlete Families will help cover the rest of the slots.


Here is the sign-up genius link: Boy's C-team Tournament


As we get closer to the tournament date, I will be assigning open slots in order to have adequate coverage. I will work with Julie Eggert on this and start with basketball families that have not yet volunteered the suggested hours this season and go from there, working around Trinity games, as needed.

This is a great opportunity for our boys and a chance to highlight Trinity. Thanks in advance for your help!

Please reach out with any questions or concerns.

The staff salaries and food expenses are paid for solely by the funds collected for lunch. Any amounts in your student's lunch accounts that do not get used this year, will roll over into the next school year. You can monitor you students lunch balance and receive email alerts at a threshold of your choosing via Power School. Thank you for keeping positive balances in your student's lunch account!

NEW WINTER SESSION OF GROWTH GROUPS LAUNCHING JANUARY 21-27!


Like to learn and laugh in a small group spiritual setting? Based on the weekend Trinity sermon, these NINE different groups are formed primarily by age-demographics including 20s-30s-40s-50s+ (although a 50-something can join a 30-something and visa-versa) and are the main way new Trinity members connect in our congregation. Help us do that in this fun, social small group Bible studies that meet in member homes or comfortably on campus once per week for five weeks. More than 110+ Trinity members participated in the past Fall session. Spend 45 minutes in a Bible study and 15 minutes (or MORE) of social chit-chat. Just add tasty snacks and drinks. Sign-up online today at: Growth Group Sign-Up or contact coordinator Jason Scherer 414-517-8373 or Pastor Oelhafen soelhafen@trinitywels.com for more info.


As 30-something Joe says: “It’s wonderful to be united with others at similar points in life and to strengthen each other spiritually.” Make new friends and study the Bible together. Don’t miss these groups.

Special Thanks to TLS Grades 5-8

“Joy to the Word, the LORD Is Come” – special thanks from Trinity’s Evangelism Commission to TLS Grades 5-8 and their parents for helping us serve Jesus as Christmas shepherds and delivering Christmas postcards to their family, friends, and neighbors. Over 950 postcards went out the week before Christmas (along with 3000+ other postcards delivered in the mail and in person from Trinity) to invite folks we know (and folks we don’t) to come worship Jesus. We are proud of you! Recent studies have shown that 80% of unchurched adults would seriously consider accepting an invitation, extended by a friend, to attend a Christmas Eve service. This year, at Trinity Christmas services, we had 250+ visitors. Keep planting your seeds of invitations as God continues to release His Holy Spirit to bring more to hear the Gospel here. Know you are making a BIG difference.
