Worship With Us
GOD’S WORD TO US – A PATH OF DISCOVERY:
The Bible is a wonderful library of books written in ancient times – which might be intimidating. But it is not hard to start your journey into the Word of the Lord. This study will lead you through the entire Scriptures in a way that is approachable, engaging, and transformative.
This Bible Study will showcase the literary art of the Scriptures tracing the themes found in them from beginning to end. You will come away with a greater understanding of the Scripture and Jesus Christ at the center of it all.
Join us in the Gym on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. Bring your Bible, notepad, pen, and an appetite for the word of God!
CATECHESIS FOR LIFE:
The “Catechesis for Life” study focuses on the basics of the faith for long time members as well as those who are new to the faith.
It also serves as Trinity’s New Member class. Join us for this interesting Bible Study on Sundays at 9:30am in the Fellowship Hall.
PASTORS & PEOPLE: CARING FOR THE CHURCH & ONE ANTHOER
This Bible study will address the issues of who is in charge in the Church, the work of the priesthood of all believers, trust between pastors and people, dealing with a self-absorbed culture, working within one’s vocation, and how pastors and people can hold one another accountable to God.
MIDWEEK CONFIRMATION CLASSES:
are being offered beginning Wednesday, September 8, at 3:30 pm for 6th, 7th and 8th graders who do not attend Trinity Day School.
If this time does not work with your child’s school time, please contact Pastor Mech. Midweek classes will take place in the Fellowship Hall (FH) and Luther Room (LR).
Students should bring paper, pen or pencil and a bible. Please contact Chris Melcher, to let us know your child will be attending.
TUESDAY WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY:
We will be starting “Amen: The Story of Scripture from Eden to Eternity”, an overview study of the Bible.
We will meet on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of each month from 8:45 - 10:30 in the Fellowship Hall. Child care will also be provided, and our littlest babies are welcome to stay with mom.
In order to plan for child care volunteers, please contact Nancy Glatczak.
THURSDAY WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY:
in the Fellowship Hall.
We will begin this with studies from the LWML Quarterly. Please join us! Contact Chris Short for more information.
FRIDAY MEN’S BIBLE STUDY:
Christians in a Woke World," a Bible Study that analyzes "wokeness" from a Biblical perspective. Above all, what this study reveals is God's answer to the challenge of "wokeness." He calls His people to demonstrate courage in the face of challenges, confess the faith and above all, share the love of His Son, Jesus, with all people.
The class meets at 7:00 am in the Fellowship Hall.
With the universal Christian Church, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, Jesus Christ, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Trinity is a member of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). The congregations of the LCMS are "confessional." They hold to the Lutheran Confessions as the correct interpretation and presentation of Biblical doctrine.

Children in the Pews
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Luke 18:16).
God has promised to be present among us by means of His name and Word. He is here today to bless you and your children. It’s what the Divine Service is all about.
It’s why you promised, at your child’s baptism, to bring him or her to the services of God’s house. We are glad that you and your child(ren) are here so that together we grow in our faith toward God and our love toward one another!
We understand that this can be difficult at times so please, hang in there. We’ve all been there with a child who screams or has a hard time sitting still. This is where you and they need to be, and we’re here to help.
Be enthusiastic about having your child at church and practice church ahead of time at home.
Consider sitting toward the front where it is easier for your little ones to engage.
Quietly explain the parts of the service and actions of the pastors and musicians. Encourage them to chime in on their parts: Amen; Lord, have mercy; the Lord’s Prayer…all of that belongs to them, too. The sights and sounds of this place are good and nurturing, even when your child doesn’t understand them. We learn by doing.
Be sure that you participate in worship too as you sing, sing, say, pray, stand, kneel, and sit. Your children learn by following your lead.
The Music room is available as a cry room (the service is on T. V. there), or, if you need more quiet time to nurse a child, a room is available across from the women’s bathroom downstairs. The service is on T.V. there as well.
If your child becomes disruptive or is not engaging in appropriate church behavior, remove him or her for a brief “time-out”. Have him sit facing the wall for 3-5 minutes. DO NOT allow your child to play, run around, look at books etc…Your goal is to return to church with a compliant, quiet child as soon as possible and this will not happen if it is more fun for them to be out of church. If you have had to remove your child from the service, make sure that he or she does not get any rewards or special privileges when you get home. It is important to teach that there are consequences for misbehavior.
If your child has shown appropriate behavior, make sure and praise him or her after church and in front of others. This is a wonderful way for people sitting around you to reinforce good behavior to your child and even for the pastors to compliment your child on being a good listener.
Enlist fellow church members to sit with your family. This is especially helpful when you have several small children in tow. Many older members of our congregation would be thrilled to hold your little ones and help them pay attention. Take advantage of their experience of raising their own children as well as their desire to pass on the faith to a new generation.
For more information go to the Children in the Pew section of the Church Library. This is also the Lounge where coffee and refreshments are served between services.
