Spring Congregation Work Day Saturday March 18th update

The chance of rain never materialized so we had a pleasant but cool and breezy morning.
Skip Knight, Dan Hunnicutt and Ernie Thorns trimmed the twelve shrubs along the side of the handicap ramp and Education Building. The clippings were raked up and moved to the pickup area at the side of the front parking lot. Also, the steps to the furnace room were swept of leaves and debris to keep the drain clear.
Jeff Eckardt cleaned and wiped down all of the playground equipment removing dirt and mold that accumulated on the surfaces over winter. Cobwebs were cleaned out of the playhouse.
Barbara Cleveland cleaned the Fellowship Hall side garden and planned future plantings.
Edna Moore weeded and cleaned the Prayer Garden and removed dead material.

Thanks to the participants for working to maintain our facilities fine appearance.

June 19th – 23rd Lutheroad Camp

Dear parents, grandparents and friends of Holy Trinity Lutheran
Church,
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

LUTHEROAD DAY CAMP2017

12/4/16 5 PM Holy Communion Rite of Healing

Sunday, December 4th 2016 5PM

In the tradition of the Church, Holy Trinity will have a Service of Healing. For centuries Luke’s role as gospel writer has been rivaled only by his reputation as physician. Not only does he emphasize the healing work of the Lord in the gospel, but he also demonstrates the healing power which the Spirit gave to the apostles in the early church.
We believe as followers of Christ Jesus that our Lord desires our wholeness and healing.
Broken bodies, minds or spirits are not our God’s intent for us. Yet, we live in a world broken by sin.
During a Service of the Word for Healing, we gather for the purpose of hearing God’s healing Word for us. The Rite of Healing is a time of intentional prayer for healing — healing of mind, body, spirit and relationship. We pray intentionally for the healing of friends, family, and ourselves.
After the Scripture Readings, Sermon, and Prayers of the People, time will be given for silent prayer and for those who desire to come forward and kneel, as part of the Rite, the minister places his/her hands on the recipient’s head and prays. Oil, the ancient balm of healing and anointing, will mark your forehead in the shape of a cross.
Again, your prayers may be for yourself or a loved one. The Rite of Healing, an act as old as the Church, calls to our minds the promises of God to comfort and to remain with us.
You are encouraged to invite a friend and join us for this evening.
In Christ,
Pastor Fischer

Future HTLC Work Project

STEP RIGHT UP
We all know that Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is blessed with its share of steps. Some of them are on the outside and some on the inside.
What we often forget is that steps on the outside often come with handrails that need attention from time to time.
With the cooler temperatures we are now ready to address the 17 metal handrails/gates on the church property.
We are looking for those who have power tools and an interest to beautify God’s grounds through this process.
We are removing the rust and loose paint and repainting rails. A crew of volunteers had a workday last week.
We expect this to take several weeks. If you are able to help out please contact Ernie Thoms or Pastor Fischer.
