Trinity MET Update
Coming soon -- two more opportunities to participate!
Your Mission Exploration Team (MET) has continued to meet every two weeks:
- To prepare for further congregational input, we discussed thought-provoking
articles on the topics of: Church for the Under-Forty Crowd; Real Kids, Real
Faith; Using Technology as Communication; Effective Outreach -- lots of
- We reviewed an upcoming congregational assessment survey, one that is a
brand-new tool that the ELCA is developing to help encourage conversations
about where a congregation IS and where it feels CALLED TO BE. Be on the
lookout for this online survey, which every member is encouraged to participate in.
For those non-computer-savvy members, there will be several easy options to fill
out the survey. Stay tuned.
- Your MET team also reread the "Ministry Site Profile" in more detail, the
document we will fill out at the end of this process on the congregation's behalf,
to be sent to the Synod to find our next pastor.
- This summer "Focus Groups" will be assembled as small group gatherings to
have a chance to sit around a table and discuss those topics brought to the
forefront from all the questions and surveys asked of the congregation. These
small group discussions will be wonderful opportunities to chat about Trinity's
future and next pastor.
There are great opportunities coming soon to participate with our mission exploration
process! The more participation on everyone’s part, the better we can find a pastor
who will best satisfy who Trinity is called to be. We pray for God's goodness and God's
guidance as we walk together on this journey to where God is calling.
The members of the MET are:
- Scott Leppert and Kim Viesselmann, Co-Chairs
- Lizzy Dunfee, Secretary
- Rich Weber, Task Manager
- Jody Hoffmann, Communicator
- Carol Anderson, Writer/Wordsmith for the Ministry Site Profile that goes out to potential candidates
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to any
member of the MET group or
ELCA Good Gifts Lenten Project
Trinity has participated in Lenten Good Gifts projects for many years, and our project this year was environmentally friendly cookstoves. Traditional cooking stoves can burn a lot of wood and fill small homes with dangerous smoke that leads to a host of health problems for families. More efficient stoves can burn a variety of fuels, produce less smoke and maintain heat better, which means families burn less wood and face fewer health risks.
Each stove is $105, and our goal was 15 stoves, which would be $1,575. We exceeded our goal, collecting $3,045, which is 29 stoves. Thank you for your support!
Camp isn't just for kids! This summer, consider coming to Family Camp/Grandkid
Camp. Pastor Heidi is going with her kids and her mom Wednesday, July 6 to
Saturday, July 9. Camp begins Wednesday afternoon, and ends by noon on
Saturday, and it's all fun in between! Worship and waterfront, campfires and crafts --
family members can enjoy it all at their own pace. Family Camp is an opportunity to
relax, reflect and be renewed in spirit!
Families come in many different forms, and Family Camp brings the best of Crossways' summer program and high-quality staff to all types of families. It's a wonderful Christian community to
experience, no matter your age or family. Please let Pastor Heidi know if you'd like to go or if you have any
Coffee With Pastor Heidi
I will be doing Coffee with Pastor Heidi on Wednesdays at NSeven Coffee in Grafton (1307 Wisconsin Ave.) as I can fit it
into my schedule. Check the weekly email and bulletin for info on when that will
be happening. With the MET process in full swing and with me being part-time, I have to be mindful of my schedule. I love chatting with you, and hope to plan another one soon -- and also hope to see you there!!

Wearing masks is optional at Trinity's in-person worship services. We also livestream our Sunday and holiday services so that those at home can still hear the word of God and join the community in worship. For those wishing to commune while watching the online service, communion kits are available at the church office for you to pick up.
We do completely understand anyone who isn't comfortable coming in person. Please do what is best for you and your family.
Visitors are always welcome. Whether you join us in person or online, we welcome you to worship together with us!
Trinity has a prayer box outside to the east of church to collect the prayers of people. Anyone who seeks prayer is invited to leave a request in the box. Trinity will set apart a special time during its worship service to pray for prayer box requests.
Requests can be made anonymously, public or private (i.e., not a part of public worship). People can also request a call or email from the pastor. We pray this ministry brings comfort, peace, hope, joy and encouragement, and will also serve as a reminder to the members of Trinity that we pray for others and that God answers prayers according to God's will.
