MOVIE TIME
You are all invited to the Emagine Lakeville theater this afternoon for a 1:40 pm showing of “Family Camp”, a family movie featuring the Christian comedy duo - “The Skit Guys”.  Carpooling is available and will be leaving the church at 1:00 pm.  If you are interested, please see DCE Lisa for information.  As of the printing of the weekly there were plenty of seats still available.

CAN CAN CAN CHALLENGE
CAN you bring your aluminum CANS to church?  Trinity Youth have been challenged to fill our CAN recycling trailer three times by the end of June!  (On average the trailer is normally filled 1/month).  CAN you help?  No need to crush the CANS, just bring them in and throw them in the trailer!  Dancing is optional.

MUSIC POTLUCK DINNER
Wednesday 5/18 6:00pm—Music Pot Luck Dinner for Trinity Music participants/family: Choir/Ringers/Praise Team. Bring a dish to pass and celebrate our 2021-2022 season. Ringers and Choir will have a short practice afterwards.

BOOKS PURCHASED FOR TRINITY LIBRARY
Check out the books that were purchased recently for the church library.  Currently these books are on display in the fellowship hall.  Don’t forget to use our church library, as we have many books for children, adults, and all ages in between.  If you have any authors you would like to see in the library, please let Becky DeMann know.

MN SOUTH LWML CONVENTION
Just a reminder to anyone interested in going to the Minnesota South LWML convention, must be registered by May 13th.  The forms are in the Women in Mission magazine in the fellowship hall.  If you have any questions, call Becky DeMann (507-301-5569)

LUTHERAN WITNESS RENEWAL
It is time to start thinking about renewal of your subscription to Lutheran Witness for the next year.  If you would like to start subscribing (or if you would like to stop receiving the magazine), just let us know in the church office and we can add (or delete) you.  The cost is $19.68 per year for 11 issues starting in August.  The church is billed for all of the subscriptions at one time.  The renewal deadline is June 1 so let us know soon.

LUTHERAN BRAILLE PRINT SHOP
What does Lutheran Braille Workers and Medford, Minnesota have in common?  Printing the Word of God?  Trinity Lutheran - Medford and Lutheran Braille Workers (LBW) have been working together to get a print shop in the parish house.  Large print Bibles have been greatly requested from LBW.  When Trinity - Medford discovered this, they set up a print shop along with the help from Southern Minnesota LWML.  This print shop was one of the missions voted on in the last biannual budget.
These Bibles will be sent to prisons and for individuals that are vision impaired.  The Bibles are free of charge, as well as the postage from the US Postal Service.  The print shop is volunteer based.  Right now, they have several crews that volunteer on a weekly basis for several hours.  They need people to print, collate, proof, and prepare for shipment.  The shop can hold about 8 people so a group of 2 - 8 is what they suggest when putting together a crew.
What a great way to “Serve the Lord” and share “God’s Word”!

KITCHEN NEWS
Over the last few weeks, we have had some problems with ants.  Plunketts, our pest control experts, has come twice.  They put down gel bait along the back of the counters and the floor the first time.  When the ants returned last week, Plunkett’s came back a second time and sprayed the counters, floor, and the outside wall, as well as placed more gel bait down.  Everything that has been done has been safe to use around people.  In order to keep the ants away, please don’t leave any food out and wipe down the counters, stove and sinks. Also, be sure to wipe up any spills on the floor.
Earlier this year, there was a problem with the sanitizer (dish washer).  I contacted Hobart to have it checked out.  The technician did not find any problems or leaks after running five full wash cycles.  I will continue to run a cycle every few weeks to make certain it stays in working order.
Also, as we approach the end of the school year, there are items that have been left in the kitchen.  If you brought dishes for a funeral or other event, check the counter by the stove to see if any of the items belong to you.  Later, any items that have not been claimed will be donated.
Thank you to everyone who helps keep the kitchen in working order.

VBS YARD SIGNS
The VBS team has yard signs available for you to put in your yard once again. Please pick one up after church. You may keep the yard sign for next year or return it in August. Thank you for helping us spread the word!
If you would like to register your 3-year-old to 2nd grader to attend this year’s VBS (July 25-28), use this link:  https//www.myvbs.org/trinitynorthfield/.  We also could use 3rd grade to adult age to help as volunteers. You can use the same link to sign up as a volunteer.

INDIVIDUAL CONFESSION AND ABSOLUTION
Beginning in June, Pastor Klein will offer something called Individual Confession and Absolution.  If you look up page 292 in the hymnal, you can see how this works.
This is a practice that our Lutheran fathers kept because it was one of the ways that forgiveness could be proclaimed to sinners who want to hear yet again that they are forgiven for the sake of Jesus.  It is not necessary to list every sin you have committed.  That is impossible (Psalm 19:12).  Rather, as we confess in the Small Catechism, “We should confess those sins only which we know and feel in our hearts.”
Yes, this is something that is new to most of you.  Here are a few things to consider.  Pastor Klein has had all sorts of sins confessed to him.  You are likely not going to surprise him.  Also, in both the ordination and goes as far as the pastor not being permitted to testify against you in court.
For now, Pastor Klein will be in the chapel at church on Monday’s from 5:30 - 6:30 pm, Thursdays from 5:00 - 5:30 pm, and Sundays from 8:30 - 8:45 am.  You can also set up an appointment with him for a different time.  If you have any questions, please ask.

LWML PRAYER SHAWLS
LWML is still looking for anyone who is willing to knit or crochet prayer shawls for the Breast Cancer Care Kits that will be put together and given to the Cancer Center at the Northfield Hospital in the fall.  The LWML has funds that were donated as well as yarn.  There is no specific pattern required to use.  If you have questions, please call Becky DeMann.
