Read below to learn about important Trinity Lutheran Church news, activities and upcoming special events for members and guests of our Grand Rapids congregation.
The people of Trinity are invited to join Pastor Linstrom in the winter of 2020 for Wednesday morning and evening Bible study forums based on Richard Rohr’s The Universal Christ; How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe. This multi-week study begins on January 8th, and will be offered weekly on Wednesdays at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm.
Throughout January and February, we are collecting cleaning supplies for distribution to area agencies. Suggested items include: laundry basket or cleaning bucket, dish detergent, all-purpose spray cleaner, glass cleaner, disinfectant wipes, toilet bowl cleaner, laundry detergent, and fabric softener sheets. Please drop off your donations in the labeled black barrels found outside the narthex and in The Courtyard.
Don’t wait for the new year to care for your physical health! February fitness class schedules are available at the Courtyard Welcome Center. Somatic Yoga, Tai Chi or Functional Movement offerings are available. The suggested donation is $3 per class or $20 per month. Contact our fitness instructor, Xristina Kuhlmann
When the Forest Hills Public Schools close during the day, all Trinity daytime activities are cancelled and the church offices are closed. When Forest Hills Schools announce a two hour morning delay, morning programming at Trinity will be cancelled.
After 3 pm and on weekends, check WOOD TV8 or WZZM TV13 about the status of our evening or weekend activities. Use your best judgment when it comes to your personal safety this winter!
Consider becoming a tutor with a program that pairs adults with children in grades Kindergarten through Grade 2nd at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Academy. The tutoring program at this GRPS School has been under the direction of First United Methodist Church for 27 years! Training is provided to orient volunteers to school policies, reading strategies and the tutoring center supplies. For more information, contact Sylvia Stouten.
Women will gather for a retreat at Trinity on Saturday, February 1 from 9 am to 4 pm. Using the theme, For Just Such a Time as This, we will study the book of Esther and hear inspiring words from our keynote speaker, Trinity member Karen Palaszek who shares her blog here.
Sign up for Trivia Night on the big poster board in The Courtyard! There will be fun for everyone Saturday, Feb 8th, beginning at 5:30 pm. It will be a rousing night of team competition, prizes, food, and fun.
