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.

We are asking our Sunday School children to bring in new, items to help pack shoe boxes – for boys and girls ages 5 - 9. Gifts do not need to be expensive. You might try searching the dollar stores in town. Please remember items need to fit inside an average size shoe box. Donation will be accepted now through the end of October.

Participants should bring a dish to share and lawn chairs. There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board so we can get an idea of how many to plan for. Come and join with your fellow Trinity members and enjoy an evening of fall fellowship!

Prayer Partners - Sunday, October 8 - 12:00 p.m.
Prayer is loving communication with God. Through prayer we can find strength of spirit, guidance, wisdom, joy and inner peace. Prayer develops our relationship with God. Prayer - communicating with God - helps us grow closer and more intimately connected with God. Join us for Prayer Partners on Sunday, October 8 at 12:00 p.m. The purpose of Prayer Partners is to enrich the participants' prayer lives and reach out to our church community. Lunch is provided. If you are interested in joining Prayer Partners, or just want to find out more information about this group, please join us for a time of fellowship and a time of spiritual growth and renewal.
