What are the two most important factors for passing on your faith to your children and grandchildren?
1. Consistency in Worship Time together.
2. Consistency in Family Time together.
On Sunday, January 25, our special guest speaker, DCE Tim Rippstein, Assistant Professor of Education at Concordia University, Seward, preached and lead a workshop for adults, parents and grandparents on how to have Family Time together. All Trinity 3rd Graders received a gift made possible by the Lutheran Church Extension Fund - a free copy of Family Time: A Collection of 98 Bible Stories & Devotions published by Concordia Publishing House in 2014. "Let the Children Come to Me" (Mark 10:14)

Vacation Bible School
We had a great time with all of our VBS kids! A special thank you to everyone who made this year's VBS such a success!
"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bow. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
