Saturday March 11th CPR class

At our last Congregational meeting we took a survey for health related needs.  At the top of the list was a CPR class,

so HTLC will be offering a CPR training class to anyone in the congregation who wants to learn.

It will start at 10AM in the Fellowship Hall on Saturday March 11th.  (class should last about 3 hours)

There will be 2 different classes offered.  Heart Saver will include Adult CPS and AED training.  There is no charge for the class unless you want a card and that will cose $8.00

We will also have a Hands Only CPR instruction which only teaches compressions.  This simple skill is easy to learn and can actually save a life.  The Heart saver class will start at 10AM and you must be there for the entire class to complete it.  The Hands Only will be on a drop in basis from 10am to 12PM.  There is a sign up sheet in the Narthex for those interested

June 19th – 23rd Lutheroad Camp

Dear parents, grandparents and friends of Holy Trinity Lutheran
The learning Committee is very excited about Lutheroad Camp coming to our church the week of June 19th-23rd. We would like to invite your children, grandchildren, and friends to join us for camp this summer. It will be a week of total fun!
Lutheroad Camp is a five-day program where many of the benefits of camp at Lutheridge+Lutherock come right to the local church. The program includes fun, worship, games, Bible study, fellowship, crafts, sharing and prayer.
Camp is for children that have completed kindergarten -5th grades. (Each evening we will also have Vacation Bible School for all preschool age children, youth, and adults during this same week. Look for these details in the months ahead.)
Camp will start at 1:00 each day and end at 8:00 each evening. (Friday, June 23rd camp will end at 5:00) We will serve a snack each afternoon and dinner will be served at 5:30 each evening.
We have a limited number of spots available and they will be filled on a first come basis. Please remember that if you register a child for camp that the church is paying for a wonderful Christian experience for that child. It would be very disappointing for us if a camper canceled at the last minute and we were not able to fill that spot. We also discourage signing children up that can not commit to all 5 days. This camp is modeled after a sleep away summer camp that promotes Christian bonds that are formed throughout the week between the counselors and campers. So…. make sure your calendars are marked and Lutheroad is part of your child’s summer plans.
I have included a registration form with this letter. Please return this form by March 5th to the church office. After this date day camp will be open to the community to fill any available spots. If you have any questions please feel free to call Kate Roehrs, 964-9763 or e-mail her at mkroehrs@gmail.com.
We are looking forward to an exciting week of camp!
In the Glory of God,
The Learning Committee

New Luther Movie: Thursday, February 16th Showing

New Luther Movie: Thursday, February 16th Showing
Eternal Shepherd Lutheran Church, Seneca, is hosting a showing of the upcoming Luther movie, Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World. The screening is on February 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Premiere Seneca Cinemas 8 theater on Hwy 123 Bypass in Seneca.
This is the first time in more than 60 years that Lutherans have made a feature-length film about Martin Luther and the Reformation. Filmed in historic locations across Europe, this movie brings Luther’s story to life with exquisite attention to detail. The entertaining new film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, secret hideouts, and life-or-death showdowns. At the same time, it is a story about the most important questions of life, including: “Who am I?”, “What is my purpose?” and How do I get right with God?” It is a must-see for any life-long Lutheran, and a chance to share the message of your Lutheran heritage with others. And the only place you can see the film is in the theater on the night of this special event.
To see a trailer, go to this direct link:
The cost is $9 per ticket with a $2 booking fee, so buying multiple tickets will save a few dollars. Tickets must be purchased by February 9th! Tickets can be purchased at a special web site set up for the screening: http://senaca.newluthermovie.com/ (note: include the typo on the spelling of seneca as it was set up this way) or contact the Eternal Shepherd church office and speak to Kate Wells (864-643-9635).
