Quilters and Crafters It’s time to start making an item for the August Lutherdale Auction.  We will deliver things to the camp June 1st.  Please drop off at the church office.

Missing Tables and Chairs 19 folding chairs, three Wisconsin Badger tailgating tables and two plastic eight-foot long tables (marked Trinity Co-op Preschool) are missing. Please return them. Thank you.

*URGENT* Ministry Team Leader Needed Trinity needs an enthusiastic, welcoming person(s) to lead our Fellowship/Witness Ministry Team. If two persons wanted to co-chair that works! Jesus desires us to be in a relationship with Him and each other. This team’s emphasis is the ‘each other’ part. Please contact Pastor Tom. God calls. We respond. Thanks.

Streaming Services The camera and control stick arrived this week. Next step is connecting it to an encoder to transmit to the internet.  It would be great to make Easter Sunday our first streaming service! Thanks be to God! 

Projector Update We received a new projector this week! Wonderful. Thanks to all who gave (and Paul who installed). Anyone interested in helping purchase a second one to match, ($1,200), please indicate ‘projector’ on your gift. These upgrades will allow both worshippers and persons viewing the live stream to see the powerpoint more clearly.  3/12/18 update We received a donation to purchase the second projector!  Thanks be to God!

Building on the Rock  Last year through the Making All Things New effort we got our financial house in order. This year, we are developing a plan to get our physical house in order. We’re calling it Building on the Rock. In the coming weeks, with Paul’s leadership, the council will develop a list of the most pressing maintenance concerns facing Trinity (heating, cooling, roof, etc…). We can do some of these projects ourselves. However, we need volunteers. Other projects require outside contractors. For those, we will obtain quotes. Once we know the cost of these repairs, we will bring them to the congregation one at a time in order of most pressing need. We welcome participation in this process by volunteering as well as giving financial gifts to the Building on the Rock campaign. Please speak with Paul Roskres or Bruce Milne for more information on ways you can help. Together, we are participating in God’s mission of life.  Thank you and thank God for you.

Claiming Our Baptismal Identity – Doing Justice As baptized children of God, we are sent into the world to participate in God’s mission of life. One way this participation takes shape is combatting the injustice of systemic racism. Our Social Justice Ministry Team is offering the following events to inspire each of us to live more fully into our identity as God’s beloved.
