 You are invited to congratulate  
JO JOHNSON
in honor of her Retirement





Director of Children, Youth and Family Ministries,
as she retires following 21+ years of service to the youth, families,
and congregation of Trinity Lutheran Church

 
If you would like to send your congratulations & well-wishes to her by mail,
please send them to: Jo Johnson, 27283 170th Ave SW,  Crookston MN 56716. 


 



 
 




Starting today, we return to the to the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) for our Biblical texts for worship.
We began using the Narrative Lectionary in September to try something different, focus on one Biblical text,
and to follow scripture more consecutively within a book in the Bible. 

 
If you are asking “why” we are using the Revised Common Lectionary, it is to keep things simple and relevant.
Trinity is in collaboration with First Presbyterian which follows the RCL. There is less confusion when we have guest preachers and Pr.  Isaacson is mentoring someone at another church who is also using the RCL.







______________________________________________________________________________________________


The 2017 NW MN Synod Assembly is scheduled for
June 9 – 10 at Concordia College, Moorhead MN.

but all are welcome to attend the assembly if interested.
