new members

just wondering... Just wondering about our charter members. With the death of Lester Dankert, there are only three Trinity Lutheran Church charter members remaining: Bill & Jane Kuhlman and Sarah Schaefer. For those of us remaining, this should not go unnoticed. The charter members of the early 1940s laid the foundation for what has become a strong and vibrant congregation committed to faithful discipleship and support of a Christ-centered mission grounded in Word and Sacrament. In 1943, the charter members had the foresight to start a congregation on the gravel road which was and is Jefferson Ave. They led the way for a faithful group of followers to become a congregation of the former American Lutheran Church. These folks demonstrated exceptional spirit, unselfish financial stewardship and broad vision as they built buildings, began programs, witnessed to Christ in the community and grew in numbers and faith. Where would Trinity be today without them? Next year, in 2013, Trinity will celebrate 70 years of mission and ministry. Without our charter members To a person, that mission and those first ministry would not be as vibrant disciples and important as would say it is today. To a with a loud person, those first and thankful disciples would voice, “To say with a loud God alone and thankful the glory!”  voice, “To God alone the glory!” And for their witness, generosity and steadfastness during these years we say, “Thanks be to God!” Pastor H.

Her office address is 1515 Commerce Dr Suite G Midland, MI 48642. We’ve been waiting for someone that will be available for questions..if you have them, give her a call. Keep the Adult Mission Group in your prayers this month while they are working in Chuckie, Tennessee. With the rash of tornados that have already been out this season, pray that they will have safe and productive trips.  A message regarding financials . In early February we had a very uplifting annual congregation meeting. A budget increase of 12.3% was approved as was refinancing of our mortgage. The budget increase enables us to have an emergency fund. Unfortunately so far this year we are tracking 35% below budget (-$68,500) and have been unable to increase our emergency fund. We also budgeted for the organ repair costs which will be incurred this summer. Please prayerfully consider these circumstances and the Financial Peace principles we have embraced as a congregation.
