LENTEN WORSHIP SERVICES
Our Lenten season has begun and continues through March 24th.  There will be Wednesday Lenten services here at Trinity held at 2 different times.  There will be a 1:00 pm service AND a 7:00 pm service.   The services will be broadcast on our YouTube channel, which is accessible through the Thursday live tab on the Trinity website.

TRINITY SLEDDING EVENT
This event will now be held on Sunday, February 28 and is an event for ALL ages.  Please meet anytime between 3:00 - 5:00 pm at Carleton’s Evans Hall hill (Olin Drive, Northfield).  We will sled until around 5:00 pm then return to the church for pizza and a slideshow of all the sledding fun.  There will be a free-will offering to cover any costs of the pizza.  Please let DCE Lisa know by 2:00 pm on Feb. 28 if you plan to attend so she can get enough food for everyone.  Bring any sleds/tubes, sledding attire, mask for back at church, and beverages for supper.

FEBRUARY MUSIC SIGN-UP
The February music sign-up sheet is posted on the hallway bulletin board.  In addition to 8:30 am worship service music, we also need people to sign up to provide music for the midweek Lenten services (either 1:00 pm or 7:00 pm on Feb. 24, Mar. 3, 10, 17, and 24).  There are still dates available to sign up if you would like.  We appreciate all the people who have been providing music for these past several months.

LWML FUNDRAISER UPDATE
Hopefully, you all have seen the “legs” that are on the LWML table in the entryway.  This is a competition between men and women AND is the fund raiser for LWML.  We are highlighting the missions that are supported by the money that you give.  
So far, the women are leading $30+ to the men’s $20+.  We still have a way to go to reach our goal of $305 so please consider a donation to this worthy cause.
Thank you from Trinity’s women of the LWML.

THRIVENT CHOICE DESIGNATION
For all of you Thrivent members - If you have Thrivent Choice dollars, remember that they must be designated to a charity or non-profit before March 31, 2021 for funds accrued during 2020.  There are cards on the table in front of the office that will lead you through the designation process.  If you would like personalized help in designating your dollars, you can call the Thrivent office at (507) 384-3186 (Faribault) or (507) 645-2427 (Northfield).
If you choose to give these dollars to Trinity, we will also allow you to designate a fund or organization within Trinity such as youth, LWML, etc.  If you do choose to further designate within Trinity, please let our Treasurer, Barb Anderson, know the amount and where it should go.  Undesignated funds are allocated by the Church Council.  Thank you - Your Thrivent Advocates

DER LUTHERANER
The Der Lutheraner is continuing to meet on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month.  All men of Trinity are welcome to come!  We will be starting a new study on February 13 when our next meeting is scheduled.  We will be beginning our study of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Philippians.  We begin at 7:30 AM and meet for about an hour.  Unfortunately in the current COVID situation we are not having a breakfast to start the session.  We have a brief worship time before beginning our study.  If you have questions please speak to Kurt Anderson - 507-581-1644

HEALTH UPDATE
Just an update regarding my health status.  My last test results were much better and I’m feeling good.  I would like to thank everyone for the prayers, cards, and calls during my recovery.  We will continue to quarantine until we get our vaccines.  God bless and keep you all safe.

THE BOOK REPORT
(From the Library) – Featured Author of the Month (February)       

Lynn Austin
For many years, Lynn Austin nurtured a desire to write but frequent travels and the demands of her growing family postponed her career. When her husband's work took Lynn to Bogota, Colombia, for two years, she used the B.A. that she earned at Southern Connecticut State University to become a teacher. After returning to the U.S., the Austin’s moved to Anderson, Indiana, Thunder Bay, Ontario, and later to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

It was during the long Canadian winters at home with her children that Lynn made progress on her dream to write, carving out a few hours of writing time each day while her children napped. Lynn credits her early experience of learning to write amid the chaos of family life for her ability to be a productive writer while making sure her family remains her top priority. Lynn resigned from teaching to write full-time in 1992. Since than she has published twelve novels.

Three of her historical novels, Hidden Places, Candle in the Darkness, and Fire by Night have won Christy Awards in 2002, 2003, and 2004 for excellence in Christian Fiction. Fire by Night was also one of only five inspirational fiction books chosen by Library Journal for their top picks of 2003, and All She Ever Wanted was chosen as one of the five inspirational top picks of 2005. Lynn's novel Hidden Places has been made into a movie for the Hallmark Channel, starring actress Shirley Jones. Ms. Jones received a 2006 Emmy Award nomination for her portrayal of Aunt Batty in the film.

Trinity currently has two books by Lynn Austin, they are Wings of Refuge and If I Were You.

Check these books and others out at the church library!
