This week's Family Ministry Moment video focuses on a game of hide-and-seek.

Trinity Lutheran has a tired facility.


Yes, we know this.


Years of delayed maintenance has left Trinity’s facility in a critical state.


Yes, we know this.


Years of collected clutter has put a strain on space capacity within Trinity’s facility.


Yes, we know this.


Tell us something we don’t know.


On Jan. 22 at 9:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall, Trinity’s Build Team will be sharing a Let’s Go build initiative progress report.

Images of a potential new-look Trinity, as well as a design board, which will include color and texture samples, (there also may be a furniture sample) will be a part of the presentation.


Trinity’s Build Team also has scheduled cottage meeting and congregational forum dates, which eventually will lead to a proposed March 5 voters’ meeting.


The tone in our Let’s Go has oomph – a sense of excitement as we push forward.


We continue to walk by faith, remaining steadfast and trusting Him.


For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)


It’s going to take all of us – 100 percent committed.


Pastor Golter recently shared: To do nothing is not on the table.


A recent subject matter expert shared: Trinity’s facility is lacking, it’s only dangerous if nothing is done.


It’s time to go.


It’s our mission – bringing others to know Him through the Good News.


The Cabbage Patch Kid craze of 1983.

Do you remember this?

These unique dolls were in such high demand that shoppers camped overnight at toy stores, stormed displays, kicking, punching – and even using wooden bats – just to secure possibly one of the most treasured Christmas presents to ever hit store shelves.

Stores would sell out in minutes.

Normally retailing for $25, these one-of-a-kind dolls, which came with adoption papers, could be bought for as much as $2,000.

Shoppers went bonkers.

The Devil rejoices.

Our sinful nature causes us to drift – not just over dolls.

The temptations are intoxicating.

We become overwhelmed.

We lose control.

The Real Jesus becomes blurred.

We must desperately seek the real Jesus, Matthew Richard professes in his book “Will the Real Jesus Stand up.” He also writes: In the real Jesus do we receive real happiness, joy, and peace that surpasses all understanding.

Jesus is our gift.

He is our craze 24-7-365.

Enjoy the gift of Jesus this Christmas and beyond.


Trinity Lutheran has exciting news to share.


Pastor Matthew Schilling has accepted Trinity’s Call to serve as our full-time Associate Pastor.


Pastor Schilling currently serves at St. Paul’s Lutheran in Evansville, Ind.


“The Lord remains the Lord of His Church, moving His pastors as He sees fit for the sake of the mission,” Trinity Senior Pastor Randall Golter shared. :We're extremely happy to welcome Pastor Schilling, and his family to Trinity and the Let's Go effort to preach the Gospel to everyone.”


Gary Hentzel was a giver.

His style? Behind the scenes and anonymous.

Gary Hentzel was a master crafter.

Gary could take a piece of wood and transform it into a work of art that would leave you asking: How did he do that?

Gary Hentzel was a faithful servant of the Lord, always sharing and teaching the Good News.

On April 2, Gary Hentzel was called home to Eternal Glory.

His passion, love and legacy live on through his artwork.

“Every winter, Gary would go into hibernation – into his workshop,” said Gary’s wife, Corrin. “Gary loved to create pieces, then give them away as baby gifts, wedding gifts, Christmas gifts.”

Some of Gary’s finished creations are available – for purchase – at the Artist’s Vault – Julie Wall’s studio in Eldridge, Iowa, which is open on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.., Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Proceeds from the purchases are going to Trinity’s Let’s Go initiative.

“When Trinity’s Let’s Go initiative got going, with pledge cards, is when Gary was so sick,” Corrin said. “The timing wasn’t right, and I kept telling God: ‘You are going to have to wait for us to make a decision on our giving.’ The opportunity to partner with Julie Wall and have the proceeds go to Lets Go was a perfect answer.”

It’s His timing.

Consider praying how the Lord may use you – through potential stored resources that you no longer need or use – to assist with our Let’s Go initiative.


Trinity welcomed more than 70 middle and high school students to its campus this past week.

Trinity hosted its first official Junior High Youth Gathering on Wednesday – and it was a hit.

The once-a-month event is for all middle school students – not just from Trinity.

Several students, who aren’t involved in our Confirmation program, attended our event. Praise the Lord.

Our High School Youth - which meets on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. - welcomed close to 40 students on Wednesday as well.

The group prepared care packages for college students. A special thank you to Pastor Grewe, Travis Jansen and Kari Smith for leading our Youth charge.


Tirzah Krey’s elevator speech is an eye-opener.

The missionary's message? 

“Come and see!”

“Exploring new cultures and meeting new groups of people can open your eyes to seeing how the Lord works in many different ways,” said Tirzah, who serves the Lord as a missionary through the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.

Tirzah, who serves alongside 40 missionaries in the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in the Dominican Republic, will be sharing her stories and experiences this weekend at Trinity Lutheran. It’s part of our LWML weekend celebration.

“Your whole perspective can change when you see that you have brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world,” Tirzah shared.

Tirzah, who has a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Windsor, provides care for missionaries and their families in all aspects of their physical, spiritual, and emotional health.

As I've navigated a couple of different hospital and clinic systems while caring for missionaries who are sick, it continues to astound me the different levels of care there are in other parts of the world,” Tirzah shared. “When we think we have "bad" health care here in the States, it's nothing compared to the poor quality of care that is often offered at the best hospitals in some countries.”


There is one constant, though.


“The Lord always provides,” Tirzah shared. “Even though life, church and culture look different, our Lord is the same wherever His people are.”


We just have to open our eyes!
