Stories to Tell: All Together

Dear Friends,

Do you wonder what your church is up to especially when you are not in the building?? Just in the past month …

  • We celebrated the gift of sewing, crafts, and compassion with the donation of quilts to Lutheran World Relief. Thank you to the Crafts at the Table for guiding and teaching us!

  • Premise Keepers have faithfully continued to assist our custodian, Alex, to keep the building shining. Join the team on Monday Mornings at 8 a.m. for cleaning and conversation!

  • Facilities Team is coordinating the installation of a new automated handicap entrance for the main doors. There was an anonymous donation to cover the entire cost. The use of this door will benefit so many people of all ages and capabilities. We are scheduled to have electricity wired to the doors next week.

  • Men’s Small Group met on Thursday evenings. EVERYONE is invited to join them for a special servant event on November 11 from 1-3 p.m. They will be serving at Houses Into Homes. Please contact Pastor Ron Schardt at ( so they have an idea of how large the team will be!

  • 15 Students were Confirmed as Members in a special Worship Service on October 24.

  • Family Ministry has grown! We have learned about our Neighbors, carved pumpkins in the sanctuary with a special prayer, and had a special visit with Pastor Dirk from Free Indeed.

  • Wednesday Youth Night (WYN!)

  • Club 56 continues to grow! Family Ministry and Club 56 alternate curriculum so we can maximize our resources.

  • High School Ministry continues to grow! Three of our members are on the North Liberty Volleyball Team and brought the team to Youth Group. We have an amazing team walking alongside our youth including Kent, Deb D., Deb B, Rachel, and Suzanne.

  • Confirmation is led by Pastor Tim and his team as they study the Year of the Bible.

  • WYN Worship has grown to be fairly consistent with 40-70 people each week.

  • We had 16 households who hosted a Trunk for our first Trunk or Treat on October 31

  • We have stories of children, youth, and adults who had an afternoon of fun and outreach. Youth brought their friends to host a trunk, a grandfather brought his grandsons, children of all ages hosted, families went from trunk to trunk and collected a lot of treats, launched a stuffed pumpkin or two off the observation deck and celebrated amazing fellowship!

  • Each week we have worshipped, prayed, walked along one another in our joys and our challenges.

This coming weekend we will dig into a story about the beloved woman and her handful of coins as she shared her treasures! Intentional Discipleship opens up our hearts to joyful giving!

Praise the Lord, Holy Trinity is vibrant inside and out!

Blessings to you and your household,

Pastor Katie
