Ascension Day Divine Service (with the Lord’s Supper)
Thursday, May 30th, at 6:30 PM

15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.  

22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

2019 Bethel Chapel Painting Project

After the Sunday, December 16 voters’ meeting at Trinity, the congregation resolved to raise funds to paint our Bethel Lutheran Chapel in Presque Isle WI, during the summer of 2019.   The cost of the project is estimated at $4,500.00   It will include painting the building exterior, exterior doors, steps, and the bell tower.  After painting Trinity in 2018, it is time to do that needed maintenance at our other property for the summer outreach in P.I.   Please consider supporting the ongoing ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church and particularly this painting project, especially at this Christmas and New Year’s celebrations.   We are also anticipating some maintenance on the parsonage in Boulder Junction as well.    Trinity is thankful for the ongoing support of prayers and financial gifts to keep traditional Lutheran teaching and practice available for residents and vacationers in the north woods of Wisconsin for years to come, even in the midst of changing economics and demographic trends.    We appreciate your generous consideration.   Our ongoing presence depends upon the joint efforts of year-round members, seasonal visitors, vacationers, and ongoing support of various people around the country.

If you wish to contribute to the Bethel Lutheran Chapel painting fund or the general operating fund of Trinity Lutheran Church consider sending a check to:

Christmas Day Divine Service – 9:00 AM

“When you are baptized, partake of Holy Communion, receive the absolution, or listen to a sermon, heaven is open, and we hear the voice of the Heavenly Father; all these works descend upon us from the open heaven above us. God converses with us, provides for us; and Christ hovers over us–but invisibly. And even though there were clouds above us as impervious as iron or steel, obstructing our view of heaven, this would not matter. Still we hear God speaking to us from heaven; we call and cry to Him, and He answers us.. Heaven is open, as St. Stephen saw it open (Acts 7:55); and we hear God when He addresses us in Baptism, in Holy Communion, in confession, and in His Word as it proceeds from the mouth of the men who proclaim His message to the people.”–Martin Luther (1/19/1538 [LW 22:202])

Midweek School Resumes in October

Stay tuned for more information on Trinity Lutheran Midweek School – our version of Sunday School on a Wednesday after school.    Contact Laura Sass for more information.   Details will be coming soon.

In other news, we welcome continued donations toward the ongoing church painting project.   We are painting the Trinity building, garages, and the parsonage fence this year.  We likely will paint Bethel Chapel in Presque Isle next summer.

Painting work underway…

Painting of the exterior of Trinity in Boulder Junction is underway! 

If you would like to contribute to defraying the costs of this importance maintenance project, please consider sending a check to Trinity Lutheran Church, marked for “painting project.”   Any “excess” funds will be used for painting at Bethel, which is likely to happen next summer.    Our buildings are getting to the point where we will need to do a round of some regular maintenance and improvements.  Please consider supporting these projects above and beyond your regular offerings so that our regular operating budget is not negatively impacted.


Also, please note, for those who are able to support Trinity Lutheran Church of Boulder Junction year round, but only leave here or visit seasonally, please consider enrolling in automatic depost offerings, a new way to give at Trinity.   If you would like to make a one-time gift or give on a monthly basis to support our Lutheran ministry in the northwoods, please contact Elder Greg Sass to get set up.    We depend upon the generous support of our visitors and seasonal residents to make it through the lean times.   We encourage you to exercise your stewardship priorities and put your resources where your confession of the faith is.   Support having a solid traditional Lutheran presence in the northwoods of Wisconsin for years to come!
