This week we welcome special guest preacher, Rev. Jonathan Breimeier, who served as pastor at First Trinity 1986-95. He is now pastor at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Port Washington, WI.
Apparently not satisfied by Jesus’ feeding of thousands, some who were there press him for a sign of his power; perhaps it is daily manna they want. As always in John’s gospel when people want a sign, Jesus offers himself. He is the bread come from heaven to give life to the world. He calls us to come to him and believe in him, and through that relationship to know the one who sent him.
Readings: Exodus 16:2-4, 9-15, Psalm 78:23-29, Ephesians 4:1-16 , John 6:24-35
Stewardship is sometimes defined as "taking care of something that does not belong to you". Our facilities at First Trinity don't belong to us*, but it is our privilege to serve and use those facilities. However, with our part time staff, it is hard sometimes to keep up with the small things that need to be done to keep the building nice. If you are ever interested in helping with cleaning and maintenance projects please see Rene in the office or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Things as small as taking out the garbage after fellowship, or as large as painting the ceiling of the auditorium are on the list!
* in case it's not clear, our buildings belong to future generations... but by the time the next generation takes over they will belong to the following generation. That's how this works!
This week Erika taught the first yoga class at First Trinity. It was well attended and fun! One of the participants commented that the wide array of body types, ages, and ability levels made the class very comfortable.
Join us on Wednesdays at 7 pm.
There is a $10 suggested donation, but this is pay what you can and no one is turned away.
First Lutheran Church of The Trinity's annual Jesus and Justice Day-Camp is coming soon. Details are coming, but what we can tell you now is that there will be fun games, good food, fascinating speakers, and campfire worship every evening.
