Workers Needed for LLL State Fair Booth

The Nebraska Lutheran Laymen’s League plans to host the LLL State Fair booth in Grand Island Friday, Aug. 27, through Monday, Sept. 6, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day. This is a great opportunity to share your faith and offer valuable printed resources on Christian beliefs – resources with answers to today’s problems and challenges – and visit with fair goers about faith issues. If enough volunteers do not come forward by Saturday, June 12, the booth will not be able to operate this year for the first time in many years. If you are willing to help for a few hours, please contact Paul Schmidt, LLL State Fair Booth Coordinator, cell or text 402-460-0004, or email psflatwater@inebraska.com
Thank you for your help!

♫ Concordia Chamber Choir Concert

The Concordia University, Nebraska Chamber Choir will perform at Trinity Lutheran Church on May 8 at 6:00 p.m.  “The Chamber Choir strives to perform music at a high artistic level – music which inspires, instructs and entertains,” Dr. Kurt E. Von Kampen, the choir’s conductor and music department chair, said. “But the mission of the choir goes beyond mere artistry. The University Chamber Choir exists to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in song and to honor God with the musical talents the students have been given.” Admission to concerts is free. Free-will offerings will be taken to help defray tour expenses. This will be in place of the Saturday worship service.

Is there an Interest for a NURSERY Room in our church?
The Board of Education is looking into setting up a Nursery Room in our Church. They are first seeing if there is an interest in this room and need your input, please let Taryn Wright or Jenny Reynolds know if this is something that you believe would be of use in our church. The NURSERY ROOM would be in use during Sunday School Time 9:00 am – 10 am and also would be used during worship 10:30 am – 11:30 am. There would need to be volunteer staff scheduled to man the room while in use. We would need to look into getting a TV and Audio set up in the room so those using the room would have access to Worship. This is in the beginning stages and would be a great asset to our church, but before the Board of Education can move forward they need to know there is a great interest. Please let Taryn or Jenny know if this is something you would like our church to have.

Sunday School NEWS
The Sunday School is asking for donations of Plastic Easter Eggs and Candy for their SS Easter Pizza Party/Egg Hunt. Donations must be here by March 28, they may be left in Taryn’s SS Room or in the Church Office.

Is there an Interest for a Nursery Room in our church?
The Board of Education is looking into setting up a Nursery Room in our Church. They are first seeing if there is an interest in this room and need your input, please let Taryn Wright or Jenny Reynolds know if this is something that you believe would be of use in our church. The NURSERY ROOM would be in use during Sunday School Time 9:00 am – 10 am and also would be used during worship 10:30 am – 11:30 am. There would need to be volunteer staff scheduled to man the room while in use. We would need to look into getting a TV and Audio set up in the room so those using the room would have access to Worship. This is in the beginning stages and would be a great asset to our church, but before the Board of Education can move forward they need to know there is a great interest. Please let Taryn or Jenny know if this is something you would like our church to have.
