Lutheroad Camp June 25-29th

Dear friends of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church,
The learning Committee is very excited about Lutheroad Camp coming to our church the week of June 25th- 29th. 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, and adults during this same week. Look for these details in the months ahead.)
Note: The Youth will not have a class as they will be attending the National Youth Gathering that week.
Camp will start at 1:00 each day and end at 8:00 each evening. (Friday, June
29th c. 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. 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.
You can click on the link below to download a registration form. Please return this form by March 25th to the church office. 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

General Lent reminders

LENT
Just a reminder
The Forty Days before Easter are the Lenten season. During this time we omit the refrains that are
connected to celebrating Christ’s resurrection and we use the verses appropriate for Lent. They are:
• We refrain from singing Allelulia’s because of its connection to Easter.
• There is no Absolution (minister declaring our forgiveness, page 118) for all of Lent is a time of self-examination.
• Omit the Hymn of Praise: “Glory to God in the highest” and we instead lead straight into The Prayer of the Day.
• We sing the Lenten verse: “Let your steadfast Love” page 125.
• We use the Apostles’ Creed.
On Easter Sunday, April 1, we will return to the verses praising our Lord and His resurrection.

WALKING FOR LENT

WALKING FOR LENT
During Lent many use this time to practice “giving up” something while others may practice “taking up” something. What if you could do both? This Lenten season, the Health Ministry Committee invites you to “take up” healthy eating while “giving up some” of the ingredients and cooking practices that make our food less healthy. Starting Sunday, February 11th, every week, there will be a week’s worth of recipes available from the “Seasoning Lent” cookbook from Church Health. This cookbook includes healthy recipes, reflections, and prayer. The recipes are not only healthy but also easy and family friendly. These weekly packets of recipes will be in the Narthex each Sunday. Please take one per family. Please let Amy Goodson know if more copies are needed. Also, we will be starting a Lenten walking devotional starting Saturday, February 17th at 10:00 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. Please contact Amy Goodson if you are interested in participating and if you need a devotional.

Ash Wednesday services 2/14/18

Ash Wednesday Services
Again this year we are offering an additional worship service for Ash Wednesday at 12:00 noon. This will be a simpler type service with no music for those that do not wish to drive in the evening or maybe due to a work schedule. In the evening will be a full liturgical service at 7:00 p.m. Both services will have the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion.

Synod Apportionment

Synod Apportionment
In an attempt to increase the congregation’s giving to Synod Apportionment, the Church Council approved that the offerings received during our Mid-week Lenten Wednesday night worship services go toward our S.C. Synod Apportionment.
