Joining in His Mission

From time to time, Trinity’s members need a little help.  In recent weeks, your generosity has provided for an emergency car repair for one family and help with moving expenses for another family in crisis. If you would like to donate to make sure funds are available for those in need, you can designate your donation for the Barnabas Fund (formerly called the “Needy Family Fund”).

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed. (Proverbs 19:17)

It’s not too late to donate to support our African missionaries.  Visit here to donate with credit/debit card.  You can also donate by using the donation forms found in the gathering room, attach check/cash, and place in the offering basket or return to the church office.  Joining in His Mission – TOGETHER!



Baby Food Jars, Formula, and Cereal

Food barrel collections go exclusively to the food pantry at Bethany Lutheran Church. Any donations are welcomed, but specific items will be suggested each month. Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40

Life in Christ

Thank you for all your generous donations toward our mite goal. District grant #6 has been paid. This grant for $25,000 went toward some interior remodeling at A Place of Refuge. Now we are working on grant #7, which goes toward scholarships for campers to attend CAMP LUWISOMO. Let’s keep filling those mite boxes

On Saturday, June 3, our childcare operations will temporarily relocate to the school building to allow for plumbing repairs and other work to be completed at the childcare house.  Beginning on Monday, June 5, childcare operations and our Spectacular Summer Program for children 3K-5K will be in full swing in the school building.  The two programs will primarily utilize the early childhood wing of the school, but infant care will take place in the music room.  The hours of operation are 7am – 5pm. Our goal is for the childcare to return to the house as soon as work is completed.

SHHHH….Babies are sleeping!  The Gathering Room will not be available for use during childcare hours M-F, 7am-5pm.  Meetings and other gatherings may take place after hours during the week and on weekends.

“THE REASON FOR GOD: Belief in an Age of Skepticism” by Timothy Keller is available in the Schelder Gift Center, and recommended by Dr. Sam Seefeld. Keller addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers, have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand their ground against the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics, he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

CELEBRATE THE LORD OF THE NATIONS WITH LWML IN MILWAUKEE — June 22–25, 2023. Keynote Speaker Rev. Dr. Greg Seltz is well known to LCMS members, having served as The Lutheran Hour speaker for many years. Currently, he serves as the Executive Director of the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty, educating future generations about serving God by working in government. A dynamic speaker, his various careers have been essential to prepare him to speak out in defense of religious liberty and truly “Celebrate the Lord of the Nations.”

Please consider taking a two-hour shift (or more) at the Lutherans for Life Ozaukee County Fair booth in Cedarburg Wednesday, August 2 through Sunday, August 6. The booth is open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM. Shifts run every two hours starting 10:00 AM-noon, noon-2:00 PM, 2:00-4:00 PM, etc. We would prefer more than one person at the booth so if more than one person signs up for a shift, that is okay. To sign up or if you have questions call 262.618.4000. Leave a message if no one answers and you will receive a call back.

How can we express biblical truths without “pushing” our religious beliefs on others? Trying to avoid confrontation, we must always speak with love in our hearts–love for the innocent lives being taken, love for the parents who are suffering from the guilt of an abortion decision, and love for our neighbors who are denying the truth that God has written on their hearts.

In July an informational/educational meeting will be held for those who wish to prepare their hearts and minds to engage with passersby at the fair booth or those who may stop to chat. PLEASE WATCH FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. Learn some very basic tips regarding the pro-life persuasion. These tactics help you effectively, yet graciously, engage abortion-choice advocates on the most important aspects of the discussion about abortion and other life issues. Check out https://lutheransforlife.org/resources/life-blog/ for articles and information regarding life issues.

Our culture has slowly and methodically turned away from biblical marriage, family values, and respect for human life. As Christians, we have a duty to express the truth about the sanctity of life to our families, friends, and others we come in contact with. Opportunities like the fair, voting, National Life Chain (first week-end in October), etc. give us an opportunity to reach out to others.
