Service of Leaving and a Celebration of Appreciation
October 14, 2021
All are invited to a Service of Leaving and a Celebration of Appreciation on Sunday, Oct. 24. Worship will be at 10am (note change in time), followed by a program of celebration and appreciation in the parish hall. Lunch will be served in the dining hall at 12:30pm. Pastor Jennifer Arnold from the Greater Milwaukee Synod will join us.
Time has been dedicated for the congregation to participate! If you would like to say a
few words or in some way offer a public reflection of Pastor Brent's ministry at Trinity,
this is your opportunity. Please contact the church office, Julie Ische or Bob
Callies by Oct. 21. A list will be created
and on Sunday, Oct. 24, those who wish to contribute will be called up to offer their
appreciation. If you wish to participate publicly, this is your chance!
A Message From Our Council President
October 8, 2021
It is with great regret and sadness that I must bring this sad news to all of you. On Tuesday evening the Council held an emergency meeting with Pastor Brent Halverson, Scott Leppert, Jeanne Mueller, Bob Callies and Lizzy Dunfee (remotely). At this meeting, Pastor Brent provided us with his letter of resignation. Pastor Brent's last day in the office will be Thursday, October 21, 2021, and his last service will be Sunday, October 24, 2021.
This is a very sad day for not only myself, but our whole congregation as I have enjoyed working with Pastor Brent over his 12+ years at Trinity. Not only Pastor Brent, but Kelly and Ariana have been a very important part of our congregation and they will be dearly missed.
On Sunday, October 24, 2021, we will have a gathering in the dining hall after church service to wish Pastor Brent, Kelly and Ariana well in their future endeavors.
Please join us for our membership appreciation luncheon, cake, coffee, refreshments and giving Pastor Brent a wonderful send-off.
In Christ's Service,
Helping Each Other
The Membership Committee is hoping to start a project that could involve all of us. It got sidelined by the pandemic and it's time to put it in action. Many of us have families who come to our rescue when needed. However, in the modern world of today, some of us need to depend on the church to provide love, companionship, support and, yes, sometimes physical help.
There is a simple form on the tables in back of church called "Helping Each Other Questionnaire." Do you want to help? Or are you a person who needs help? If you don't need help, check the boxes on the list for what you can help with (driving, food, odd jobs, etc.). If you do need help, check the boxes for your area of need.
It may take us a little time to get organized, but we will do our best to get this up and running as soon as possible. Thank you!
Trinity now 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 Pastor Brent. 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.
Pastor Brent at NSeven
On most Wednesdays, Pastor Brent will be at NSeven Coffee Company (1307 Wisconsin Avenue in Grafton) from 10-11:30am. You, your friends and neighbors are all welcome to come share a table and visit with him in an informal setting.
Trinity is now holding in-person worship services, with no reservations needed. Masking is strongly recommended but optional, pews are not blocked off, and Communion is offered. Online services continue to be available. For those wishing to commune while watching the online service, communion kits are available at the church office for you to pick up.
Visitors are always welcome. Whether you join us in person or online, we welcome you to worship together with us!
