Food Prep: 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm 2 people

One of the outward signs of being a Christian is our love for people. We try to make that love come alive by serving others through mission trips. The Senior Singles will meet on Thursday, February 22 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm in the West Campus Chapel to learn how short term mission trips honor our Lord and serve His people. Coffee and treats will be available. For more information contact Maf Berg at 715-386-6680.
The Board of Directors has announced a special meeting of the voting members of Trinity for the purpose of issuing a divine call to Rev. Jim Bender. The meeting will be held at 12:00 pm on Sunday, February 25 in the sanctuary of the West Campus.

CAMPUS NAME CHANGES
WEST AND EAST
During our reconciliation process last year, it was identified that we would adjust the naming of our two campuses to reflect a more unified vision. After a congregational process, two new names were chosen. Our downtown campus (1205 6th Street) will be renamed our west campus, and our family center campus (614 Badlands Rd) will be renamed our east campus. Please note that our church name hasn’t changed. We are still Trinity Lutheran Church, but the designation of the two campuses will now be west and east. Thank you to all who participated.
YOUTH PRAISE TEAM
WE NEED YOU
The Youth Praise Team, which is led by Laura Pelz, is in need of more members! If you sing or play an instrument, we would love to have you on the team! Any and all levels are welcome - no need to be an expert. Please connect with Laura Pelz at email@example.com, or call the church office at 715-386-9313 to get connected. Practices will be on Tuesdays in the downtown youth room at 4:00 pm. They will no longer meet on Wednesdays.
WE NEED DRIVERS
Do you have a commercial drivers license (CDL)? We are in need of experienced bus drivers for several of our ministries that include: childcare, academy, youth program, and church-wide events. We use our bus at all times of the day for field trips, youth events, Feed My Starving Children, service projects, and mission trips - just to name a few. If you have a CDL and are willing to serve Trinity, please contact Ken Gerhan at 715-386-9313.
