Trinity’s Women of the ELCA

Several dates have been set aside in October for photo sittings

for Trinity’s potential new directory, HOWEVER…

We still need one or two people willing to serve as coordinators, so we can publish a simple, updated photo directory for our congregation!
Lifetouch offers a simplified approach to church photo directories; it does not involve a lot of telephone calling or time-consuming layouts. Congregation members can make their own appointments on-line and appointment times can be taken after worship services and simply entered into Lifetouch’s system.
If you are willing to be a coordinator, call the church office at 281-4276 for more information or to volunteer!


We are still seeking J.A.M. Teachers/Leaders for the 2018-2019 ministry year – classes start Sunday, September 9th! Openings are available in the following areas:

  • 1st Grade: 2 teachers
  • 2nd Grade:      2 teachers

Thank you for prayerfully considering sharing your time, talent and FAITH with Trinity’s youth in our teaching ministry -it’s a decision you’ll never regret! You will make a lasting impact on our kid’s faith journey and you will also enrich your own relationship with God!
