Trinity Lutheran Church is a member of the Central Illinois District of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. As Lutherans, we in the LCMS share a strong belief in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired inerrant Word of God. It is by God's grace alone, through our faith worked in us by the Holy Spirit, that we believe in Jesus Christ as the only means of salvation.

Community Outreach
During the Lenten Season we direct our hearts and minds to Christ. Lent is a good time to give to projects that will help those in need. This year we will collect a different item each Wednesday to benefit Pekin Township. We are collecting baby items to help infants in need. Items may also be brought in the Sunday before. There will be a box in Room 10 to put your items in.

Palm Sunday Processional
All children and young people are invited to take part in our Palm Sunday Processional at both the 8:15 and 10:45 services. Please be fifteen minutes early at both services and gather in the room by the parking lot entrance so palm branches can be passed out. The children will process down the center aisle, and return down the side aisles to sit with their parents. If they are participating in both services, at the 10:45 service they can leave as they are going down the side aisles since this takes place at the start of the service. All ages are welcome!

Easter Lilies
Easter Lilies will decorate the sanctuary again this year. The cost is $13.00 per plant. Please return this form and money for the lily in your offering envelope marking it "Easter Lily." The deadline for ordering is March 25.

This will give them time to eat breakfast beforehand and begin serving at 7:30 a.m.

Trinity Goes Bowling - Roxy's Lanes
Trinity will go bowling on Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. We will meet at Roxy's Lanes. The cost is $1.50 per game and $1.50 for shoe rental. All ages are welcome. If you have a Trinity t-shirt, this would be a great time to wear it!

Transportation Help Needed!
We are in need of people who will help with transportation! There are some who would like to come to church if they had a way to get here. This is an important ministry, as transportation should never be the reason anyone is prevented from worship and fellowship. Please contact Pastor Raddatz if you would be able to help with this ministry.
