For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21

Field Day

We need to all pray for a beautiful day next Wednesday for Field Day! Kindergarten through 8th grade will travel to Bremen High School to compete with four other Lutheran schools in track and field events on May 11.


All drivers should meet in the gym at 8:10 for some quick instructions and to pick up the schedule and list of students riding in their car. If you are driving from home, your classroom teacher can provide the schedule via email, and you will need to be at the meet by 9:30.

Students should wear INSPIRED shirts, comfortable shorts or track pants, and tennis shoes. We need to be ready to do our best! If the weather is iffy, please dress accordingly. If the weather is inclement, a decision will be made by 8 am to cancel.


Bring a sack lunch and drinks, and drivers are encouraged to bring a blanket or something to sit on for lunchtime. There is a concession stand if you prefer to purchase lunch.

We will leave school by 8:30 am and the meet usually concludes by 1pm. Students may be dismissed after the track meet.

Do you need an INSPIRED shirt for Field Day? We have a few shirts still available for purchase in the office for $5.

Book Collection

For the month of May, TLS will be collecting gently used children's books for CAPS (Child and Parent Services). They will distribute the books to their clients at a family picnic in June. Books that we've enjoyed and outgrown will be put to good use and enjoyed by another family!

The books should be in great shape, and we especially are looking for board books, picture books, and some children's chapter books. There will be a collection area in the school entry beginning next week.

Prayer Vigil

As Trinity begins worship in the new church, we are commending our future ministry to the Lord at a 24 hourPrayer Vigil, held May 20 at 6pm through May 21 at 5pm.

A prayer guide and prayer walk through the church will be available during the Vigil. There will also be several worship times, including Evening Prayer at 6pm Friday, Praise and Adoration with the worship team on Saturday morning at 9am. A pastor will also be available for prayer support or confession at 6pm, 9am and 3pm.

If you would like to fill out a prayer request or sign up for an hour of prayer, please stop at the table between worship services this weekend or in the office during the week.

Summer Fun!

Mark your calendars and save the date! Vacation Bible School is planned for June 13-17, and we are adding the option of Extended Day Camp from 7:30 am-5:30pm.


VBS will run from 9am- noon. Students that are signed up for Extended Day Camp will stay for lunch and continue the fun all afternoon!

Watch for Registration information coming out soon! If you have questions, please contact Jodi Freshour.
