DECEMBER 2019 MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

God Became Flesh
 
If we were to put together a model of our solar system, with the appropriate sizes and distances to scale, we would start with a ball roughly eight inches in diameter.  A bowling ball will do.  Earth would be the size of a peppercorn, less than a tenth of an inch in diameter.  One inch in this model represents one hundred thousand miles.  If you place the sun here, earth would be twenty-six yards away, representing a distance of ninety-three million miles.  Pluto, if we assume it to be a planet, would be more than a half mile away.  Pluto, by the way, would be the size of a pinhead.  The nearest star would be more than four thousand miles away.  In the grand scheme of things, you and I are not even as significant in this universe as one grain of sand is on the seashore. Our planet is as nothing.  We could disappear, and the stars, sun, planets, and yes, our earth would go on as always.
 
But the Bible tells us that despite our puny size in this universe, we are important.  God used words to create until it came time for one last creature.  This time there was no “Let there be…”  Moses writes in Genesis: “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.”  God deliberated.  The three persons of the Trinity put extra thought into this creature.  He started with dust of the ground.  Then God breathed into Adam’s nostrils the breath of life.  Man became a living being.  It wasn’t like the life that other creatures had.  Man had a soul.  Then with one of Adam’s ribs the Lord made Eve.
 
In the vastness of this created universe, God has chosen us as His special creatures.  You and I are the focus of His attention and His love.  That is the reason for the event we celebrate on December 25th.  The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
 
God assumed our flesh and blood to do what we could not do: pay for sin.  With His body, He suffered for sin in our place.  He also rose from the dead to conquer death for us.  He did this for no other creature.  As huge as this creation is, you and I are His most important and loved creatures.

A Day To Be Remembered!
What has been the most IMPORTANT event in your life---a day to be remembered and treasured???  Most of us don’t even remember this day; the day we became a member of God’s Kingdom, THE DAY OF OUR BAPTISM!!
In an effort to help Trinity members reflect and “remember,”  Trinity is honoring the baptismal birthdays of our members.  On the last Sunday of each month, members, young and old, who were baptized during that month can sit together, enjoy a treat and, perhaps, share stories during the fellowship hour.
We do have the dates of baptism for most of our members; but, if we missed yours, please let us know so we don’t miss it again. Any questions and/or dates, please contact the church office:  645-4438.
Arise and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.  Acts 2:16
Baptism doth also now save us.  I Peter 3:21

FROM THE TREASURER

For there is born to you this day in the city of
David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
”  Luke 2:11
 
As we prepare for Christmas, both at Trinity and at home, we know that the greatest gift has already been given to us.  May all the joys and blessings of Christmas be yours, and may God bless you and keep you in the New Year.
 
By the end of October, Trinity spent $160,600 for Home Fund expenses but received Home Fund contributions of $146,700.  Trinity began 2019 with a Home Fund surplus of $37,975.  By the end of October, the surplus decreased to approximately $24,000.  The surplus is estimated to decrease to approximately $14,000 by the end of the year.  The November Home Fund Budget Status report will be posted in the Fellowship Hall during the first week of December and will be printed in the January newsletter.
 
Giving to the District and Synod Missions through October was $3,627, giving to the Trinity Special Missions was $3,800, and giving to the Capital Fund was $7,343.  At the end of October, Trinity had approximately $6,000 in Capital Funds.
 

 

 


 

LCMS Stewardship Ministry  – December 2019
Jesus, in His Sermon on the Mount, is teaching those who follow Him that worrying about the necessities of life is idolatry: worshipping a false god. This is because worry and anxiety show what we care about. Our anxiety reveals what we love and to what we’re devoted. It reveals what we trust in.
This is why our Lord begins this section with an overarching principle: “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
 But you say: “I must eat and drink. I must have clothing to wear and have a home in which to dwell.” Yes, all these things you need. And Jesus says that your Father in heaven will ensure that you have them. He demonstrates this with a simple argument.
 Your Father in heaven feeds the birds of the air, who neither sow, nor reap, nor gather into barns. He clothes the lilies of the field, who neither toil nor spin but are arrayed more luxuriously than Solomon in all his glory. If, then, your Father in heaven feeds the birds and clothes the lilies, how will He not also feed and clothe you when you are worth more than they are?
 For you know that you are worth more than them. You are worth infinitely more. You are worth the price of the eternal Son of God. Did the Son of God come down from heaven and become a lily? Did he descend and take on the form of a bird? No!
God became man in Christ Jesus. He lived the life we failed to live, and He died the death we deserve because of it. He was raised again on the third day to overcome sin and death … for us. He was crucified for our transgressions and raised for our justification. So, if your Father in heaven has given His Son to die for us in order that we might live with Him eternally, how will He not also give us all things to support this body and life?
Your Father in heaven knows what you need – food and clothing, house and home, etc. – and He promises to give it to you. Chief of the things you need is His grace and mercy in His Son, Jesus Christ. So, seek after that. Those who seek will find. And all the necessities of life, our Lord says, will be added to you.

DCE LISA’S PAGE

God is GREAT!  I am so thankful to serve with this wonderful staff and new faith family.  As I begin ministry here at Trinity there are a lot of ideas running through my brain.  One main idea is to start a monthly gathering of MS youth and a monthly gathering of HS youth at an area restaurant/coffee house.  Focusing on the areas of strengthening faith, service, nurture, fellowship, and physical growth, I am also looking at having a monthly get-together of some sort.  These get-togethers could include Bible study around a specific topic, ringing bells for the Salvation Army, assembling care packages, doing a food collection, skiing, snow tubing, canoeing, cleaning or decorating the church, helping with other church activities (Christmas Walk, Christmas Tea, etc.), bowling, Christian concerts or music festivals and some “destination unknown” activities.
Some of the activities already in the works include:
            December 14 - Ringing Bells for the Salvation Army at Family Fare in Cannon Falls
            January 19 – Souper Bowl of Caring Food/Clothing Collection for CAC
            February 23 – Snow Tubing at Buck Hill
            March 15 – Crazy Bowling (and ‘real’ bowling)
            March 27-28 – Confirmation Retreat at Camp Omega
            April 5 – Easter Games & Easter Egg Hunt
            May 17 – Graduate Recognition
            June 7-10 – Rochester Servant Event
Future larger plans for our youth include annual servant events, ski trips, and attending the tri-annual National LCMS Youth Gathering in Houston, TX held July 9-13, 2022.
Future thoughts beyond the area of ‘youth’ include starting a parent support group and taking a group to Pasadena, CA to volunteer as a Petal Pusher, decorating the floats and watching the Rose Bowl Parade live and helping to get the congregation more actively involved in utilizing the Scrip/Kwik Trip rewards program.
I am excited to be here!  I do pray for our congregation, our youth, and our community as well.  I ask that you would pray for not only those things but also for our staff.
To God be All Glory!
Lisa Martinson, DCE

LWML THANK YOU
Trinity ladies from LWML would like to thank everyone who brought treats and also to those who bought the baked goods for the LWML bake sale on Sunday, November 3.   Thank you for your generosity!  With the $398 that was donated, we gave $200 to Trinity First Lutheran School, and $50 each to Community Action Center, the Wagner Family (Lutheran Bible Translators), the McDermott Family (Missionaries in Africa), and Ruth’s House.  The Lord is amazing!  He always blesses our efforts!  And thank you again for your generosity!

SCRIP CARDS AVAILABLE
Now is the perfect time to start thinking about all the scrip cards you can use to make your holiday shopping easier!  Whether they are used for purchasing or giving as gifts, scrip cards from Trinity are great ideas and they benefit Trinity by purchasing them.  Trinity gets a percentage back for each card purchased.  We have many cards to choose from, such as Kwik Trip and Holiday, Cub, Target, and Walmart, Kohls, Michaels and Joann Fabrics, Walgreens, Hallmark, Barnes & Noble, and Sears to name several.  If we don’t have on hand what you are looking for, let us know and a specific card can be ordered.  These take about 2 weeks to receive so allow plenty of time.  Stop by the back table in the fellowship hall on Sunday mornings after worship, or come into the office during the week to purchase your scrip cards.

OPERATION JOY (FORMERLY CHRISTMAS SHARING)
This year, Trinity will have an Operation Joy box to accept your donations.  Operation Joy is a holiday gift program sponsored by the Community Action Center of Northfield.  Through the generosity of hundreds of donors and dedicated volunteers, approximately 850 children from 350 households will receive gifts this year. It takes a whole community working together to make this magical program possible.  They will accept new, unwrapped toys and gifts.  Trinity has a box in the Fellowship Hall where the gifts can be dropped off.  The box will be there until December 8th.  You can also volunteer your time.  Volunteers are needed to help on December 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th with the sorting of gifts, assisting the participants with their gift selections, gift wrapping and room clean-up.  Please call the CAC at 507-664-3550 or visit https://cac-northfield.ivolunteer.com/operationjoy_002 to sign up.

THANK YOU
Thank you for the prayers during my recovery from hip surgery.  Physical Therapy is going well and I am now back to work part time...God is Good!  Thank you Pastor Klein and Pastor Boehme for the visits.  Thanks for all the cards and meals (Bruce was thankful for the meals also!) and for the prayers and kind thoughts.  God’s Blessings to you all!       Lori Young

BOARD OF MISSIONS REPORT
The Mission Board met on Wednesday, November 6th with Barb Greenfield and Pat Carlson present.
We reviewed our budget.  We also looked at what money has come in for our Special Mission projects.  Trinity has been able to give each of our missions $1000 so far.  Thank you for your generous support.
There will be mission coffee available again now that we are in the Fall season.
We chose the missions for 2020.  We chose Chai v’ Shalom; the Community Action Center; the African Ministry to the Deaf (McDermotts); LAMP; and Adopt a Student, where we send money to support a seminary student for a year.  There will be a synopsis of each of these in the newsletter and November Voters Packet.
Once again, Trinity got 20 bears from the Castle Rock bank to dress.  They will be distributed by the bank to needy families in the area.
There will also be a box for Operation Joy this year from the CAC.  Please consider helping.
The Missions of 2019 are listed on the bulletin board in Fellowship Hall.  Updates and newsletters from our missions are on the bulletin board in the hallway by the parking lot entrance.
Board of Missions.
 

SPECIAL MISSIONS FOR 2020
For 2020, the Mission Board has chosen five missions to support through the Special Mission envelope.  Also, occasionally throughout the year, we may ask for one-time gifts for a special project.  The missions we have chosen are:
• Chai v’Shalom - (www.chaivshalom.com/Home.html)  Congregation Chai v’Shalom began in 1997 as a store-front office in Dogtown, St. Louis, MO.  Rev. Kevin Parviz, a Jewish believer in Y’shua (Jesus), envisioned a congregation of Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Jesus, worshipping together in much the same fashion as the Church in the 1st century, the worship style patterned after a “second-temple model” of worship.  Our ministry has a two-fold mission.  First, we are to be engaged in intentional outreach to the Jewish community in St. Louis, and through its partner ministries, in every city with a significant Jewish population.  And second, we are to help the Church learn to appreciate the Jewish roots of their faith, to the end that they would also be in ministry to God’s first people, from whom He sent His only Son, Messiah Y’shua, that the world might be reconciled to Him.
• Community Action Center – (https://communityactioncenter.org/) At the Community Action Center (CAC) of Northfield, we are “neighbors helping neighbors.” Our programs – from Creating Homes to Feeding the Hungry – meet the most basic needs of individuals and families who are seeking help.  As a nonprofit organization serving the life-sustaining needs of those in our area, many people rely on the CAC for support as they seek independence.
Our Mission - Our mission is to promote a healthy, caring and just community for all people through resources, advocacy and volunteer effort.
In the past, Trinity has helped with the food shelf, Operation Joy (Christmas Sharing) and Operation Backpack.
• Rev. Ryan and Emily McDermott – (www.lcms.org/mcdermott)
Rev. Ryan and Emily McDermott serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as career missionaries in West and Central Africa, based in Togo, working in deaf ministry. In this role, Ryan works with partner churches throughout the region to recognize and develop opportunities to reach the deaf with the Gospel. He also identifies and trains leaders, both pastors and laypeople, for working in deaf ministry. As needed, Ryan teaches courses in deaf ministry and theology at The Centre Luthérien d’Etudes Théologiques (CLET), or Lutheran Center for Theological Studies, in Dapaong, Togo.
• Adopt-A-Student – (www.csl.edu/AAS)
Adopt-A-Student is a program of the LCMS seminaries where a congregation can support a seminary student for a year.  The student may be a future pastor, deaconess, or missionary.  The seminary will select a student with financial needs for us.  All of the money sent to the student goes directly to the student for his or her needs.  Over the course of the year, we will get correspondence from the student and may be able to have him or her come to Trinity for a Sunday to meet us.
• LAMP – Once again, Trinity will be supporting LAMP (Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots) through members of our congregation who will travel to Canada for VBS.  Along with our helping with funding, the team members will be collecting supplies for their trip.
