At Trinity Lutheran Church LCMS we believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him we receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation.  Being "Lutheran", our congregations accept and teach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century.  The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:  Grace alone, Faith alone, Word alone.
Grace Alone
Salvation is the free gift of God's grace for Christ's sake alone.
Faith Alone
Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers.
Word Alone
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.

In Christ's Service,

Rev. Dr. Brent Klein

FOOD SHARE MONTH

One of Trinity’s missions for 2020 is the Community Action Center.  March is Food Share Month at the CAC.  During March, CAC has access to discounted food programs, and can stretch your dollar further than a grocery purchase.  If you would like to donate food items, some items they are most in need of are: Healthy Grains (Rice, Dry Beans); Wholesome Snacks (Granola Bars, Whole Wheat Crackers, Fiber Bars); Cooking Oil (48 oz); Canned Vegetables; Canned Tomatoes (Diced, Stewed, Sauce); Whole Grain Pasta; and Wholesome Cereal.  All donations are greatly appreciated.

If you choose to give these dollars to Trinity, we will also allow you to designate a fund or organization within Trinity such as youth, LWML, etc.  If you do choose to further designate within Trinity, please let our Treasurer, Barb Anderson, know the amount and where it should go.  Undesignated funds are allocated by the Church Council.

LWML NEWS

SPRING WOMEN IN MISSION GATHERING
     Spring Mission Gathering of the Faribault Zone LWML will meet Saturday, April 18, at Grace Lutheran Church, Dodge Center, MN.  The church is located at 404 Central Ave North.  Registration is 8:30 -9:00 am and brunch follows at 9:00.  Cost is $10, which includes morning brunch.  The program ends at 11:30 am.
     The theme is:  “The Most Important Word in Acts 1:8”.  The speaker is Pastor Mark Biebighauser of Trinity Lutheran Church, Medford, MN.
     Pastor Mark is honored and excited to share about his congregations mission partnership with the Guatemalan village of Taguayni-San Antonio through the Central American Lutheran Mission Society (CALMS), a strategic partner of the MN South District.  The congregation has made six trips to the village since 2014 with over 20 different people participating from the church (ranging in age from 217 to 72)!  How has the partnership been so far:  In Pastor Marks’ own words:  “WOW!”  so what is a short term mission partnership?  What is the overall experience like?  What lessons can a congregation learn for its own ministry and mission?  And what is the most important word in Acts 1:8, anyway?  Come to learn, ask questions, grow in faith and in your desire to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the world.
