Wheelchair Ministry Volunteers: Are you able and willing to give 1-2 hours on Saturday, December 7 to help clear space for a new wheelchair ministry that Trinity is coordinating in partnership with Hope Haven? We will meet at 9am in the old NAPA Auto building (308 8th St. SW) across from Taco Johns. Please email Pastor Bob at (or call the church office at 712-737-4542) if you are able to help. 

Uganda Summer Trip Meeting: There will be an informational meeting about our summer trip to Uganda on Sunday, December 8 at 9:30 & 10:50 in Adult Rooms 3&4. These meetings are open to anyone who would like to hear more about the trip. (Attending the meeting is not a commitment to going.) 

Contemplative Advent Worship: We hope you will join us for contemplative worship with communion throughout the season of Advent. Every Sunday at 4pm we’ll gather in the sanctuary to engage in a more intimate, reflective time of worship. We’ll engage the mystery of the incarnation, God with us, through liturgy, prayer, singing, scripture, and the Lord’s supper. We invite you to join us whenever you are available.


Women’s Ministry Christmas Event: Women (ages 10 and up) are invited to join us for our Christmas event, Stories of Elizabeth: The Blessing of Intergenerational Wisdom. We’ll gather together in the church fellowship hall on Saturday, December 14 from 9-11am. Brunch will be served, followed by a devotional, and then we’ll listen to stories from some of our own “Elizabeths.” The morning will end with optional cookie decorating, led by Kari Broadway. There is no cost to attend the brunch. Cookie decorating costs $6 for a half dozen or $12 for a dozen plain sugar cookies. (Frosting and sprinkles included with both options.) Sign up online or at the Welcome Center by Dec. 9. If you have questions, please email Carrie Anderson at

Holiday Service Times: We will go to two Sunday morning worship services (9:30 / 10:50) on December 15, 22, and 29. We will resume our normal three worship service schedule (8:10 / 9:30 / 10:50) on January 5. 

Dog Sled Race Service Opportunity: Our Men’s Ministry has an opportunity again this year to partner with one of our ministry partners, Coldwater Foundation, at the Gunflint Mail Run Dog Sled Race in Grand Marais, MN.
