The Board of Education is responsible for the Christian education of the Trinity congregation. This includes developing and aiding in the implementation of education programs (especially Bible studies).

We maintain and encourage the use of a church library. We provide inexpensive, appropriate books and devotionals for members to use. We oversee the Sunday school programs, and next year we hope to host a Vacation Bible School.

Responsibilities

The definition of "fellowship" is a union of friends sharing like interests. At Trinity, the Board of Fellowship firmly believes this, and we also believe it is our ministry to provide avenues for this to take place.

Our responsibilities include overseeing the kitchen facilities, arranging various meals at Trinity, holding new member potlucks and orientations, planning and hosting advent and lent soup and sandwich suppers, ice cream socials, and other events. Additionally, the Board of Fellowship supports the other boards at Trinity and assists them with events involving food.

The Board of Fellowship believes that we need cultivate relationships with people at Trinity. We talk with people at the events and assist them in any way we can. We believe we are all here to worship God and make everyone welcome at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Outreach

Responsibilities

Care and concern: two words that describe the mission of the Outreach Board, together with the command from God to share the knowledge of His love and grace. Grace is imparted only by God, and yet we can and do try to facilitate that connection in many different ways, and first by initiating contact with those outside of our congregation and showing Trinity Lutheran as the welcoming congregation that it is.

The Outreach Board is charged with utilizing all means available to assist in spreading the word of the Gospel (Matt. 28:19-20). We utilize a variety of means to carry out our responsibilities, including: publicity/advertising in media with direct mail contact, greeters at the services, the Welcome Center, visitor packets, and contact by phone or personal visits. We utilize educational programs, such as Mission U, to train our board members and our congregation on our role in this effort and the best methods to spread the message of salvation.

Stewardship

Responsibilities

Stewardship = Life. It's how we live and it's everything we are and do! “The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the Lord.” (Psalm 24:1). 

Vision: Our Stewardship program is based on each of us managing our time, talent, and treasures in gratitude for how God has blessed us in our lives, and for His gift of eternal life through His son, Jesus. 

Practice: We believe that everything we think, say, and do is stewardship. It’s our reaction to all the blessings God has given to us. We also believe as the scripture teaches, that we should thoughtfully consider how we can devote the first and best of our time, talent, and treasure for God's use. 

Theme: Stewardship is an attitude of gratitude! Count your blessings daily!
