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.

Thanksgiving Eve Service - Wednesday, November 21 - 7:00 pm
Thanksgiving is an opportunity for us to express our thankfulness to our Savior for all of the blessings we have received this past year. Trinity is blessed to be able to minister to the hungry in our area and also to the area children who are in need of a winter coat. Please give thanks and share your love for Christ by donating to the November Food Drive and The Giving Tree. The Thanksgiving envelopes in your offering envelope box plus the plate offering from the Thanksgiving Eve Service will go toward the Good Samaritan Fund. This fund is used throughout the year to provide emergency food assistance to people who come into the church asking for help.

Winder Wonderland Parade - Sunday, November 25
On Sunday, November 25 Trinity will participate in the Pekin Wonderland Parade. We have booklets and bracelets that we didn't get to use for the Marigold Parade, so there will be plenty to pass out along the parade route. The parade begins at 3:30 p.m. As soon as we know our line-up number we will announce the time and place to meet for the parade via e-mail and worship folder. Please consider joining us and sharing our love of Jesus with our community.

Shut-in of the Month
Some members cannot attend church and it is important that we remember them in our thoughts and especially our prayers. During the month please pray for them and send them a card. Our November shut-in of the month is:
Fritz Timian
230 Court St., Apt. 809
Pekin, IL 61554

The Giving Tree
As winter approaches we are already in the process of providing new winter coats to
the children in our community that would otherwise be very cold. In order to continue this ministry we need your help! Our Board of Christian Service has put up their "Giving Tree" in Room 10. Their goal this year is to raise $5,400. Due to the increase in the number of children we are assisting and the increasing cost of the coats we need more funds to meet this need. The sign next to the Giving Tree will help us track how close we are to our goal. Please us "The Giving Tree" envelope in your envelops box or mark a pew envelope "The Giving Tree" to donate. Each donation will help provide a new winter coat for a child that otherwise would not have one.

We need a lot! Mostly your help!
We are in need of ushers, especially for the 10:45 service. If you are interested in helping out at this service please contact the church office.

We are also in need of drivers to pick up members who need a ride to church. Transportation should never be the reason for someone to miss worship. Call
the church office if you can help.

Greeters are needed too! If you can greet members as they enter the sanctuary please let us know.

We need Bible Breakfast helpers for the 4th Sunday of the month and when there is a 5th Sunday of the month. Please contact the church office at 346-1391 if you can help.

Men's Ministry
The Trinity Men's Ministry has begun and we are actively looking for any interested men to be a part of the group. Our purpose is to build friendships, a support network of Christian men, help others and explore what it means to be a Lutheran man in the
modern age. Learn more >
