VOTERS’ ASSEMBLY MEETING TODAY
There will be a Voters’ Assembly meeting today at 10:30 am in the fellowship hall after the fellowship time.  Please join us.

YOUTH PARENT MEETING
There have been a few event/activity thoughts running through my mind and a few brought up by other parents.  I’d like to get together with as many parents and teens as possible on Sunday, February 12 starting at 10:30am to talk about those ideas and what it would take to get some of them ‘off the ground’.

CAMP OMEGA PLUNGE
Take a dive into some cold water on Sunday, February 26 from 1-3:30pm and help raise funds for Camp Omega’s family and adult ministry.  Form a team, register, raise funds, and have fun changing lives.  Funds raised by this event will help families, kids, and adults encounter Jesus.  The impact of this event is felt through the winter, summer, and entire year of Camp Omega’s ministry.
Go to www.campomega.org and search under ‘events’ for "Camp Omega Plunge” for mor information and to register.

VALENTINE’S BANQUET COMING UP
The annual Valentine’s Banquet will be held Saturday, February 11th from 5:30 - 8:00 pm.  We hope you will join us for a night of delicious food (prepared by talented members of Trinity), fellowship, and musical entertainment.  Tickets will be available on Sunday, Jan 22, 29th, and Feb. 4th after church (or contact Bobbi Schmidtke at 507-581-2155)  Ticket prices are $16.00 per person.  Invite your family and friends to join us!!

VALENTINE DOOR PRIZE DONATIONS
The Valentine's banquet committee is asking for donations for door prizes.  Do you have a special talent and you have created something you would like to share with others, do you have home canned goods you think others would enjoy or would you like to donate something else.  Please contact Bobbi Schmidtke (507) 581-2155 if you are willing to donate a prize for our banquet.  Thank You for your help in making this a special event for our congregation!

THANK YOU
We would like to thank the Fellowship committee and congregation for remembering us at Christmas time with special gifts and wishes.  Was so good to Darlene and Barb’s smiling faces on a cold winter day!  God’s blessings to all in 2023!  Duane and Linda Hutton

FAMILY SLEDDING DAY
Sunday, February 26 starting at 3:00 pm will be the family sledding day event at Carleton College sledding hill.  Meet at Carleton with your sledding gear.  When we are done sledding, we’ll head over to the church for pizza.  This is an event for the whole congregation.  If you are staying for pizza, the cost is $5 for 5th grade and older, $3 for kids age 5 through 4th grade.  Kids age 5 and younger will be free.  The maximum cost for one household will be $20.  Hope to see you there!

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Habitat for Humanity is looking for some help.  They are in need of people to provide lunch for the workers in Faribault. Deb Thomforde has done this in the past and she said it went well.  If you can sign up to bring lunch, that would be great.  They are also looking for help from any groups, churches, friends, etc.  If you are not able to provide lunch, they will also accept donations of a gift card or pre-made lunch that can be stored in the freezer.  It’s just lunch so it doesn’t have to be fancy.  If you would like to sign up, talk to Lisa Martinson for how to register online.  If you would like to donate gift cards or donations towards lunch, please send these to:  Habitat for Humanity, 204 7th St W, PMB 128, Northfield, MN  55057.  Put a note in with the donation that it is going toward lunch for the workers.

THANK YOU
to everyone who came to the Soup and Chili Cookoff on Sunday, January 15.  We had over 30 people, 8 different chili choices and 2 different soup choices!  Congratulations to Colleen Gottsch for her winning soup and to Ruthie Wagner for her winning chili.  What a fun afternoon!

DER LUTHERANER
All men are invited to attend the men’s Bible Study on Saturday mornings at 7:30 am.  Starting on January 28, we will be studying the subject of heaven.  Please join us!

A NEW PICTORIAL DIRECTORY
Just a reminder that our pictorial directory photo dates are fast approaching!  We will be having family photography on Feb. 7 & 8.  Appointment times are filling up so hurry and schedule your time.  Just for participating you will receive a complimentary 8x10 portrait and a church directory.  You will review your images right away and have the opportunity to purchase family portraits.  There are several different ways to sign up - online (see the brochure in the weekly), after worship services DCE Lisa will be in the fellowship hall to help anyone who needs assistance, or you may call the church office during the week and someone can help sign you up.
