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


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

Please reach out to Leigh Wilkens at 262-424-5858 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!

Mission offerings can be brought to chapel each Wednesday. During the 1st semester, offerings will be given to our Russian missionaries.

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.
