News & Announcements
Please welcome Deb Donovan as Trinity's new Bell Choir director. Deb has directed handbell choirs in the Ozaukee County area for over 20 years. Currently, she is sharing her talents with Grace in Grafton and Immanuel in Cedarburg. She is very excited about joining Trinity and looks forward to sharing the joy of handbell ringing with others and offering this special music as a gift to Trinity and our Lord.
Deb lives in Grafton with her husband Scott. They have five adult children and seven, almost eight, grandchildren. She works part time as a forensic nurse at Froedtert. She loves sports and coaches/plays ice hockey. She says, "I like to keep busy and enjoy the many gifts God has provided."
The first Bell Choir rehearsal will be Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 6:30pm in the Bell Choir room.
"Change or Die" Conference
"Change or Die: Reimagining Ministry" is a daylong conference open to all, taking place Thursday, Oct. 10 from 8:30am-3:30pm at the Milwaukee Marriott West (W231N1600 Corporate Ct. in Waukesha). The cost is free due to grants from the Siebert Foundation and other sponsors. You can find out more information and register if you so choose at this web address: siebertfoundation.org/changeordie
College Student Care Packages
The Membership Committee sends out care packages to our college students. If you would like to make a monetary donation to help purchase items, please place in the offering with a notation that it is for the packages or give to a committee member (Rosa Cyrier, Kate Hill, Dave Klitz, Pastor Brent, Diane Weber, Jill Ziegelbauer or Lori Jessel). If you have a son or daughter in college, please let Linda in the church office know their address.
School Kit Collection
Send hope for a better world, around the world. Lutheran World Relief sends school kits to children whose lives are being shattered by war and poverty. We are again collecting school supplies to make kits for those kids who may get to go to school but can't afford the supplies that help them be successful in school. You can provide hope!
Here's what goes into a school kit:
- 4 70-sheet notebooks of wide or college-ruled paper 8"x10½"
- 1 Ruler (2-sided, 30-centimeter/12")
- 1 Hand-held pencil sharpener
- 1 Blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades)
- 5 Unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers
- 5 Ballpoint pens (no gel ink) -- black or blue ink
- 1 Box of 24 crayons
- 1 2½" eraser
We have a couple of particular needs: money (we will be able to make a bulk purchase of some supplies), crayons (24-pack), blunt-edged scissors and rulers. Please put your donations in the Gathering Room, or leave them under the back pew, by Sept. 2 for this year's school kits. Monetary donations can be placed in the offering plate -- please specify "School Kits" on your envelope/check.
Loose Change Offerings
Loose change offerings through September will go to school supplies for Lutheran World Relief.

Offerings -- There's An App For That!
If you're interested in making a financial offering through an app, visit your app store (the App Store for Apple products and Google Play store for Android) and find the Give+ app. Enter "Trinity Lutheran Cedarburg," choose it, and set up your amount, date, etc. You can do a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation on your schedule. You will get credit on your giving statement just as you would with envelopes. Thank you for contributing to God's work through Trinity.
