ALL SAINTS’ SUNDAY
November 7th is All Saints’ Sunday, when we give thanks to God for all those who have died confessing Jesus as their Savior.  As part of the service, we will read the names of those members of Trinity who fell asleep in Jesus since the last All Saints’ Sunday.  If you would like the name of a friend or loved one who died in Christian Faith also included in this remembrance, please contact the church office by November 4.

ATTENTION ALL VETERANS
On November 14, in the 9:00 am worship service, Pastor Boehme will be honoring and recognizing all veterans, past and present.  After the service there will be a group photo taken of all Trinity members who are veterans.  Please plan to attend this service!  Then from 3:00 - 5:00 pm that afternoon, there will be a Veterans’ Day ceremony at Trinity.

ALL ARE INVITED
Pastor Gatluk Reat, an LCMS Sudanese Pastor here in Southern Minnesota will give a presentation about his mission trips to Africa on Sunday, October 24, at 2:00 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, Faribault. Pastor Reat's trips to Africa have brought support for churches, hospitals and villages in the Gambella region an area that borders Ethiopia and South Sudan. Several people from Faribault have accompanied Pastor Reat on his trips. Pastor Reat was mentored by Pastor Boehme.

MISSION REQUESTS
Once again, the Board of Missions is asking for suggestions from the congregation to help decide which missions to support in 2022. There are forms on the table in the Narthex.  Please feel free to pick one up and fill in the necessary information.  Return them to the Mission mailbox in the Ushers’ closet by October 24.  The Board will make our decisions at the November Board meeting and present them to the congregation at the November Voters’ meeting.  Thank you for your input.

LWML MISSION GRANT #2

Healing the Invisible Wounds of War through Horses
      Spirit Warrior, Central Maine - $95,000

LWML Mission Grant #2 for the 2021-2023 biennium is “Healing the Invisible Wounds of War through Horses”.  Spirit Warrior horses and a deaconess are ministering to returning soldiers who often experience a conflict between their moral standards and the orders they had to carry out while in uniform.

 Many veterans and service members want to connect with God.  Theological discussions, as well as hearing of the love of Christ, take place while caring for the horses.  

For information on the Spirit Warrior ministry, go to:
www.lwml.org/2021-2023-mission-grant-2.
