One week before our 150th anniversary, we celebrate the heart of our faith: the gospel of Christ—the good news—that makes us free! Though we give thanks for the events of the sixteenth-century Reformation that brought renewal to the church of that time, we pray that the Holy Spirit would continue to unite the church today in its proclamation and witness to the world. In the waters of baptism we are made one body; we pray for the day that all Christians will also be one at the Lord's table. And we celebrate Reformation Sunday! Color of the day is Red!
Come early for The Lutheran Magazine discussion group. 9:15am
November 1st we will celebrate 150 years, All Saints' Day and Dia De Los Muertos. Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a festival to welcome the souls of the dead. The living prepare an offerenda (offering) for the dead including favorite foods, candles, religious artifacts, and other remembrances. We welcome you to bring remembrances of loved ones who have passed to add to our offerenda.
During the anniversary celebration we will remember those who founded and sustained the church over the past 150 years, as well as celebrate the diversity and culture that makes First Trinity an exciting and vibrant congregation today.
The End of the Year is Near!
