Please pick up your 2019 Contribution Statements and check them to see if you notice any errors that need corrected.  Talk to Judy Boehme if that is the case.  Thank you.  If you did not as yet pick up your 2020 envelopes, they are with your statement on the table.

The time for Main Street Living now begins at 9 am on Sunday mornings.  This is an LCMS program that features a 30 minute broadcast of a reproduction of the Lutheran Hour Ministries show made popular in the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s “This Is The Life” and a 30 minute modified worship service, which begins at 9:30 am.  The program is aired on WFTC, channel 29/9-2 from the Twin Cities and is totally funded by viewers and others.  January 19th worship service will feature Rev. Thomas Gundermann, university pastor for Concordia University, St. Paul.  His message, “Eureka!  Wow!  Look at THIS!” will be based on Isaiah 49:1-7 and John 1:29-42.

Beginning January 8th at 6:00 p.m., the Fellowship Committee resumed their Wednesday meals at Trinity. If you like to cook, the committee welcomes you as a guest chef. You can prepare just the main course for approximately 30 people, or provide the entire meal. All expenses are fully reimbursed, and the committee will take care of set up and clean up. If you want to be a guest chef for one or more Wednesdays in January or February, please use the sign-up sheet on the hallway bulletin board, or call Barb Anderson (507-581-1642). These meals are open to everyone and there is no charge, although there is a free-will offering basket to help cover expenses.  Please come for dinner, and take a night off from cooking and kitchen clean up! The Fellowship Committee members are Darlene Larson, Linda Hutton, Linda DeMann, and Barb Anderson.

Many thanks to those who decorated the church for the Advent and Christmas seasons. The flowers, window decorations, trees, lights, ornaments, manger scenes, banners, and all else helped make the services festive to the eyes as well as instructive to the ears of faith.

Thank you also to those who helped with the Advent, Christmas Eve, and other holiday services - our parish secretary who typed many, many bulletins, the altar guild, the choir and ringer members and their director, our parish organist, ushers, worship assistants, acolytes, those providing visual aids for the object lesson sermon Christmas Eve, lighting technicians, individual candle assemblers and distributors, the Pastors who preached God’s Word, and all others who participated in any way in the joy of the celebration of the birth of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

May the joy of Christ’s birth fill your New Year with eternal hope.

Everyone enjoys a treat with their coffee and conversation on Sunday Mornings.  Have you ever considered serving or bringing treats?  It takes about 7-8 dozen cookies or bars. Juice and coffee are always there.
If you want to bring treats but aren’t comfortable serving, there are always people willing to help.
You can also donate cookies for the cookie bucket.  Money out into the coffee basket is used to purchase cookies, creamer, teas and other fellowship items.
Thank You

Matt. 3:15 – “But Jesus answered him, ‘Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.’ ” The reason God sent His Son into the world is to fulfill all righteousness for us, to do what we could not do. So here Jesus plunges Himself into our sins and soaks them up in His Baptism, so that in our Baptism we might be cleansed and renewed. The whole of Jesus’ life, everything He did and said, was one great offering to the Father in our stead to fulfill all righteousness for us. All our offerings back to our Lord are in thanksgiving for this one great, true offering.

The Mission Board would like to thank everyone for their support of the 2019 special missions.  Your financial support allowed us to give each of our five missions $1500.00.  You also participated in the baby bottle fund raiser for the Northfield Women’s Center, dressed Christmas Bears to be given to families in need in the area, donated toys for Operation Joy, and brought food and other items needed by the Community Action Center.  All of these gifts are greatly appreciated.
For updates on Trinity’s missions, check the bulletin board in the hallway.
Please keep Trinity’s missions in your prayers and donate to them as you are able.
Thank You, Board of Missions.
