Trinity LWML is asking for your help with this project.  Let’s bring these things each week and overflow our grocery cart!  At the end of month, all contents will be taken to the Northfield Food Shelf by members of Trinity LWML.

Because of the holiday next week on Thursday, the worship service that is normally held on Thursday, has been changed to Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm instead.  The church office will be closed on Thursday in observance of Independence Day.

The First Brigade Band from Watertown, Wisconsin will be at Trinity on August 4th to help lead us in our worship service.  The band will be in Northfield that weekend as part of the Vintage Band Festival.  Some of the bands make themselves available to local churches, and we are blessed to have the First Brigade Band with us.  Weather permitting, the service will be outside.

Do you have a heart for sharing the Gospel with Jewish people or just want to learn more about the Jewish faith?  If so, please join the Burning Bush group at Trinity.  The group will meet at 7:00 pm on six Mondays from July 15th - August 19th in the church library.  Initially, the group will study Chapter 1 of the book The Christian Difference:  An Explanation & Comparison of World Religions (CPH 2019).  This chapter gives an overview of Judaism and describes the challenges of witnessing to Jewish people.  Books will be provided at no cost, but the group size is limited to ten people.  For more information about the Burning Bush group and to become a member, please talk to Kurt and Barb Anderson, and then add your name to the signup sheet posted in the hallway.

Luke 15:10 – “Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Why does Jesus eat with sinners? Certainly not so that they will remain stuck in their sins. Jesus meets sinners where they are so they will come to know His love and repent. To repent means to turn away from sin and toward Jesus in faith. Whether the sin we struggle with is pride, greed, doubt, etc., the Lord calls us to turn to Him again in faith and away from our sin.
