The Latest News:

Potluck Lunch & Meeting with Rev. Elise Brown, Kairos Associates
June 18 
There are exciting things happening here at Holy Trinity!
Thanks to all who participated in our Mission Assessment online survey and in our personal interviews with Kairos Associates. We are blessed to have Rev. Elise Brown working with us to assess our position for mission and ministry here at Holy Trinity.
There is still an important opportunity to share in this exciting process. Pastor Elise will return on Sunday, June 18, 2017 to worship with us and then share with us the HTELC Leadership Report. This report will help us to create a mission-driven strategy for the coming years, as well as explore our options for maximizing and unleashing our assets and gifts.
Please mark your calendars now and plan to bring a potluck dish to share!
Please continue to pray for our faith community as we discern God’s plans for us.
Peace and Light,
Pastor Sharon

Young Adults in Global Mission
Support Stephanie Roth
My name is Stephanie Roth and I have been actively involved in LCM and the nursery for the past 4 years. I am excited to announce that, starting in August, I will be serving in Madagascar through the Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) Program.
The past four years, HTELC has greatly influenced my faith by showing me what it means to live in a global community. Service has always been an important part of my faith, but LCM and HTELC has taught me to live out my faith by using my own hands to complete God’s work. I know that sounds completely cliché and textbook like, but it’s completely true! I would like the congregation to stay involved in my journey throughout the year with a prayer calendar and monthly newsletters.
Please consider supporting me along this journey by making a donation. Individuals who donate to my year of service before the end of June will be able to add their name to the prayer calendar and submit pictures used to create the calendar. (The calendar will be displayed in the church.) On the respective day, I will pray for that individual and they will pray for me.
Online donations can be made via http://support.elca.org/goto/stephanieroth. If you prefer to make a donation via check, please email me and I can send you the form.
To choose a date, email me or write down your name/date on the sign-up sheet located on the global mission bulletin board near the nursery. All pictures can be emailed to me.
Thank you to everyone who has already made a donation and has supported me these past four years! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at sroth330@gmail.com.
