THIRD GRADERS
This year’s 3rd graders will be receiving their Bibles in the worship service today.  Instead of the traditional Bibles, the Board of Education has chosen a storybook format Bible - “The Story for Children”, which was used as the Sunday School curriculum last year.  Third grade students this year are Lillian Criswell, Ashlie Maurer, Jared Nybakke, and Noah Scheffler.

SUNDAY SCHOOL BEGINS TODAY
All youth are invited to join us for Sunday School, which begins today at 10:30 am.  Any child is welcome!

FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE NEWS
Because there will be two milestone birthday celebrations in September in the Fellowship Hall after church, the Fellowship Committee will not host an Ice Cream Social on September 23rd (Rally Sunday). The committee will provide Wednesday evening meals, beginning at 6:00 p.m., from September 19th through November 7th. The meals are open to everyone, not just those at church on Wednesdays for confirmation, music practice, and Bible study. There will be a Thanksgiving dinner at church on November 14th and a Thanksgiving Eve service (with no meal) on November 21st. Advent meals and services will begin after that. The Fellowship Committee members are Darlene Larson, Linda Hutton, Linda DeMann, and Barb Anderson.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY RESUMES
Wednesday night Bible Study, which is led by Pastor Boehme, will resume on Wednesday, September 19 at 6:30 pm.  Or come at 6:00 pm instead and enjoy fellowship and a meal before Bible class begins!  This Bible Study focuses on the Old Testament, Epistle, and Gospel readings for the following Sunday.

CONTRIBUTION STATEMENT CORRECTION!
For those people who pledged weekly amounts, be aware of the following: because the number of Sundays in a year varies, this year there were 34 Sundays that were recorded through August 31. According to the way the Pledges are figured out, that made it look as though people were “behind” (usually by just one week). Know that when the statements were run using September 2 as the closing, folks off by just a week’s amount were then completely up-to-date. So sorry about that. See Judy Boehme if you have questions or would like a different statement.

STAINED GLASS WINDOW REPAIR UPDATE
Most of the stained glass windows in the sanctuary are in need of age-related repairs, including the large triangle window above the altar.  The voters accepted a repair estimate of $13,576 from Willet Hauser.  A deposit of $5,000 from the Scrip Fund was recently sent to the company, leaving a balance of $8,576 to be paid upon completion.  The work will begin in early 2019, but could begin sooner if the company has another project in the area.  The family of Ferd Volkert has asked the council to designate the balance of his memorial fund money (approximately $5,900) for the project, minus the cost of making and installing memorial plaques for the new windows in the chapel.  Trinity members can still contribute to the Stained Glass Window Repair Fund.  Any funds designated as such and received before the repair work is finished will reduce the amount of Capital Funds needed for the balance due.  For additional information, please see the repair estimate posted on the hallway bulletin board or talk to Todd Criswell.   To date, Trinity members have donated a total of $2,480 towards the repair of the windows.  Thank you for your generosity for the preservation of our church history!
