Dear Trinity Families,
Here is your Daily Devotion
The Gifts of God
What do you want for Christmas? How about a life purified from sin and standing blameless before God on Judgment Day? Those are the gifts of God, the most expensive gifts in the history of the universe.
It’s no wonder that we can always rejoice. We can stay in constant contact with our heavenly Father and express our appreciation for everything he does.
Let’s stay strong in faith, immersing ourselves in his word, testing everything with the eternal truth of God. Let’s fill this Christmas—and our entire lives—with the goodness of God and eject anything that would keep us from him.
Dear Trinity Family,
Pastor has received a divine call to serve as pastor for two congregations in Michigan (St. John Lutheran in Clare & Faith Lutheran in Harrison). That means that he is now holding 2 divine calls: one to serve as pastor here in Marinette and one to serve in Clare & Harrison. Please pray that the Lord would grant Pastor and Barb guidance and wisdom as they deliberate both of these calls. Your words of wisdom and encouragement are always appreciated. Pastor will make his decision over the next few weeks.
Christmas for Kids: After getting impute from members of the congregation, we have decided that we will not be holding a Christmas for Kids this year. We hope to be able to start planning Easter for Kids early next year.
Mid-Week Advent Services: We will not be holding Mid-Week Advent Worship Services this year.
Trinity Staff Christmas Offering – After our worship services for the next two weeks (December 13th/14th & 20th/21st), we will have a special door offering to show our appreciation for our Trinity staff. This offering is not intended to discourage you from expressing your personal thanks. This collection will be distributed equally among all of our Trinity staff. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement. If you would like, you may show your support in this offering.
Trinity’s Food Drive was a HUGE success.
Thank you to ALL the members of our congregation, the students at our day school and for any outside donations we received. Your love and generosity has shown through by your unselfish act of kindness. Our food pantry now has shelves that are over flowing and the ability to continue and help those in the community who are less fortunate. We were blessed to receive almost 1000 (yes that says one thousand) items and monetary donations.
38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be poured into your lap. In fact, the measure with which you measure will be measured back to you.”
