FATHER’S DAY SNACK BAGS
For Father’s Day this Sunday, June 20th, the Fellowship Committee has snack bags available in the narthex.  All men are welcome and encouraged to take a bag: to have as a Father’s Day gift; to give as a gift to their fathers; or to honor their fathers.  Happy Father’s Day to all from the committee!

2021 FALL MUSIC PROPOSAL
Thank You to all who have returned their forms already!  As of June 15, 14 people sent in the forms about their willingness to participate in Trinity’s music starting (God willing) in the fall.  It was a real blessing to read their responses.  Several people were interested in participating in more than one musical activity.  Choosing music for the various groups will start in the next few weeks.  It would be great if the rest of the forms could be sent in by June 30.  If you cannot or do not wish to participate in Trinity Music as outlined in the letter, please do return the form anyway.   Your past service is very much appreciated and we thank you for sharing your musical gifts.  Life circumstances change and that is understood.
PLEASE NOTE: The letter and forms were sent to the past participants in Trinity Music groups. If you are a new member of Trinity and would be interested in joining a group or if you have participated in the past and might like to return to a group, please see Judy Boehme and she can give you the explanation letter and form. Thank you.

BOOK CLUB
Trinity Book Club has chosen the books that they will read for the next 5 months.  Book Club meets the first Monday of the month @ 10 am in the fellowship hall at church.  All are welcome, come and join the discussion.

COME TO TRINITY’S NATIONAL NIGHT OUT PARTY
Trinity’s National Night Out neighborhood party is back! Our 5th almost-annual party will be on Tuesday, August 3rd.  Please watch for updates and more details in future weeklies. Once again, we’ll invite the neighborhood to join us for a fun evening. You’re invited, too, and are encouraged to bring your family, friends, and neighbors. We hope to see you at the party!

CONGREGATIONAL CAR CRUISE
The Trinity Congregation car cruise participants should begin assembling Saturday June 26th in the Trinity parking lot around 10:15 to begin cruising at 10:30 AM. We will cruise for a little over an hour and return to the church parking lot for some fellowship time and some food. Trinity’s Fellowship Group has graciously agreed to prepare hot dogs and other food items for us.  If you have already signed up for the car cruise please indicate if you are staying for food. If you have not yet signed up and desire to participate, please place your name on the sign-up sheet on the hallway bulletin board so that the Fellowship Group will know how many people to expect.  See you Saturday June 26th!

DOXOLOGY COST
Over the last 15 months, life has been difficult for all of us.   During that time, Pastor Klein has done an exceptional job of shepherding Trinity through these times.   However, trying to preach the gospel under all of the restrictions has been a source of stress for him. Last winter, the Board of Elders became aware of a conference this July in Buffalo, Mn that he felt would allow him to connect with other Pastors.  The cost to Trinity is $2200.  We have about $750 in our budget, which means we are short around $1450.  We are asking the members of Trinity to help us make up the shortfall.  If you would like to contribute, you can make a check out to Trinity with either Doxology or Pastor's conference in the memo line. Any amount would be appreciated.  Thank you - John Greenfield, President

FELLOWSHIP  TIME HAS RETURNED
Fellowship Time on Sunday mornings is back.  Fellowship is between services in the fellowship hall.  The sign-up sheet is back by the kitchen.  We greatly appreciate anyone who would like to serve treats or donate cookies.  Also, the Bunn coffee maker is once again plugged in and ready to make coffee.

CALLING ALL BOAT OWNERS/PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO FISH
We are looking to holding a youth/adult fishing event later this summer.  The date will be decided soon.  In the meantime, please talk with Lisa Martinson or John Pfeiffer if you have a boat and are willing to bring aboard a couple of youth or if you are an adult or youth who likes to, or would like to, go fishing for an evening.

LIFELINE SCREENING SCHEDULED
Life Line Screening is the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings.  They will offer affordable, non-invasive, and painless health screenings here at Trinity on Monday, July 26, 2021.  A package of five screenings to identify risk for stroke, heart disease, and other conditions will be offered.  These 5 vital screenings are normally offered for only $149 but the Director has sent us 3 coupons for complimentary screenings.  These certificates are on the hallway bulletin board and are available to people who attend worship at Trinity.  Once the certificates are gone though, participants must pay the full amount.  Please see the bulletin board for more information.  Register by calling toll free: 1-888-653-6441 OR text the word “circle” to 797979.

VBS WILL BE HELD THIS SUMMER!
Elements of Trust VBS -- July 26-29, 2021/ 5:30 - 7:30 pm
Come and learn more about JESUS in this fun-filled, Elements of Trust, Vacation Bible School!  We will explore faith-themed science experiments, listen to daily devotions, learn new songs and so much more!

THE BOOK REPORT
(From the Library) – Featured Author of the Month (June)  

Bodie and Brock  Thoene

BODIE AND BROCK THOENE (pronounced Tay-nee) have written over 70 works of historical fiction. Over thirty-five million of these best-selling novels are in print in 30 languages. Eight ECPA Gold Medallion Awards affirm what millions of readers have already discovered: the Thoene’s are not only master stylists but experts at capturing readers minds and hearts.
Bodie's byline appeared in prestigious periodicals such as U.S. News and World Report, The American West, and The Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for John Wayne’s Batjac Productions and ABC Circle Films as a writer and researcher. John Wayne described her as a writer with talent that captures the people and the times! She has degrees in journalism and communications.
In 2016, Bodie's writing returned to the big screen with the release of I'm Not Ashamed: The Diary of Rachel Joy Scott.
​Brock is described by Bodie as an essential half of the writing team. With degrees in both history and education, Brock has, in his role as researcher and story-line consultant, added the vital dimension of historical accuracy. Due to such careful research, The Zion Covenant and The Zion Chronicles series are recognized by the American Library Association, as well as Zionist libraries around the world, as classic historical novels and are used to teach history in college classrooms.
Bodie and Brock have four grown children: Rachel, Jake, Luke, and Ellie, and nine
grandchildren.
