“I Love It When a Plan Comes Together!”

I’m continuously reminded of how the body of Christ functions through the lives of those I’m surrounded by at Trinity. Earlier this month Trinity hosted the Life Walk on behalf of A Place of Refuge – the ministry connected with Lutherans for Life that provides care and concern in the name of Jesus for women in crisis pregnancies. The ladies of our LWML worked tirelessly to provide a lunch at the Historical Society picnic shelter for the more than 100 participants. One of the participants in this year’s walk was a young woman who earlier in life was one of the infants born to a woman at A Place of Refuge. This young woman just graduated from Living Word High School and is on her way to UW-Madison – faithfully bearing the name of Christ that is hers in her baptism. Through our support of APOR, Trinity plays a part in her story.

I see the body of Christ at work in the donations of groceries and money for the food banks of Bethany, Holy Ghost, and Mission of Christ. This food accompanies the saving message of the Gospel delivered to those living in the inner city by Pastors Elijah Ndon, Chris Ikanih, Afam Ikanih, and lay pastor Patrick Batom. Trinity plays a part in their Gospel work!

I see it in those who faithfully lead small (and not so small) Bible study groups at Trinity, enriching the lives of those in their groups with the Word of God. It’s lived out in the lives of a beautiful couple at Trinity who have adopted children at risk and are selflessly giving of themselves to provide them a life apart from dysfunction and addiction. I see it in a Trinity member who hand delivered Thrivent Live Generously t-shirts – going door-to-door in his neighborhood, telling his neighbors that this shirt is a gift from his church because – it’s what we do! The examples seem endless.

In Colossians, Paul tells us to “live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.” Disciples imitate Jesus. The Holy Spirit provides the power and the results. Like Col. Hannibal Smith says from the old television show the A-Team – “I love it when a plan comes together!” God’s plan is coming together here at Trinity, just as it has for 2000 years since Jesus gave us the marching orders to share His saving work with the world.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. – Matthew 7:7-8

Announcements & News


SCHEDLER BOOKSTORE and LIBRARY

We’re making changes!! As Trinity’s ministries continue to grow faster than its space can handle, it is necessary to consolidate and share space with others wherever possible. Therefore, Schedler Resource Center (Bookstore and Library) will be doing some down-sizing over the summer. To assist in that process, there will be an on-going clearance sale of various Bookstore items. Currently, sale items are located on or above the blue table against the south wall in the Bookstore. New items will continue to be added throughout the summer. Please come and browse!

Ensure you receive the exclusive code & details. Code will be emailed during the promotional week.

Please bring your cakes to the school kitchen by 9:00. AM on Saturday, July 3rd. Cakes will be cut and individually packaged on July 3rd.We are hoping for a great selection of homemade cakes.

Keep the LWML national convention in your prayers. You will be able to watch the convention on the LWML website. New grants will be chosen at the convention. It will be June24-27 in Lexington, Kentucky.

LWML thanks the congregation for all donations of towels, washcloths, etc. last month.  For the month of June, we would appreciate any and all donations for our layette kits.

Baby wipes (travel size), pacifiers, bottles, receiving blankets, and we are in need of more band-aids (1/2 -3/4 in.) and bath-size bars of soap.

Thanks so much.  We couldn’t accomplish our mission without all of you.

If you would like to contribute to this need, please indicate June 2021 Nehemiah Project on your gift.
