Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church
Sunday Worship, August 14th, 9:00 am
Greetings from Church! Please join us in the Sanctuary or online for worship, this Sunday morning, August 14th, beginning at 9:00 am. We will be observing the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost.
The word of God is a refining fire. Jesus is the great divide in human history. He invites our undivided attention and devotion. When we gather in worship we are surrounded by a great “cloud of witnesses.” In the word and in Holy Communion we are invited yet again to look to Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.”
We, the People of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, gather to proclaim the word of God through worship, Christian Education and community outreach, while supporting and serving others through the ministries of our congregation.
Please follow this link to access the August Newsletter which includes reflections by Pastor Spencer and David Ruhf, Young at Heart news, lots of photos, congratulations to and updates from this year's high school grads, the August happenings (it's going to be a somewhat relaxed month), and more.
Lutheran Disaster Response
Beginning on July 27, a line of severe storms dumped record amounts of rain on eastern Kentucky, overflowing rivers and creeks onto streets and neighborhoods. The death toll in Kentucky is expected to rise as search and rescue efforts continue. Though hundreds of people have been rescued, the number of people missing is still unknown. Rising waters are damaging infrastructure, including roads, bridges and power lines, which hinders rescue efforts. The flooding has destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings and left families with nothing. These severe floods are not limited to Kentucky; there has been flooding in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, West Virginia and other states in the region.
As the waters recede and the full scope of the damage is assessed, Lutheran Disaster Response will work with the Indiana-Kentucky Synod and local communities to focus on long-term needs. We anticipate that the response will include rebuilding homes, replacing lost household items and providing emotional and spiritual care to survivors. This is in addition to LDR's ongoing response to the December 2021 tornadoes in western Kentucky.
You may give to LDR through Joyful Giving by placing a check in the Joyful Giving basket at church, by visiting our website's donation page and scrolling down to the Mission Outreach option, or by visiting LDR's page, directly.
