Financially Support Trinity Lutheran Church, Boulder Junction

HELP SUPPORT AN ONGOING CONFESSIONAL, LITURGICAL LUTHERAN PRESENCE FOR THE NORTH WOODS OF WISCONSIN FOR RESIDENTS AND VACATIONERS ALIKE!    PUTTING YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR CONFESSION OF FAITH IS…

Trinity Lutheran Church (LCMS) of Boulder Junction, Wisconsin and our seasonal chapel, Bethel Lutheran Chapel in Presque Isle, Wisconsin (not far from Marensico, MI), serves the north central vacation area of northern Wisconsin in Vilas and Oneida counties and southern parts  of Upper Michigan.    We are here as an outpost of the biblical gospel of Jesus Christ, confessing salvation by grace alone through faith alone, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We are a traditional congregation of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS).   We uphold classical Lutheran ways of worship or liturgical practice.    The Bible, catechism, and hymnal are central to our life together.    We hold to the inspiration and inerrancy of Holy Scripture, and the effectiveness of the Word of God.   We hold a high view of the holy sacraments as instruments of the Holy Spirit and the Lord delivering to us forgiveness, life and salvation.   We uphold the biblical view of creation, of marriage between one man and one woman, and the sanctity of human life.   We hold firmly to the Holy Scriptures and the Book of Concord in teaching and practice.

We are privileged to serve as a key outpost of the truth of Christ where people retire, rest, and vacation and where some find a place for their careers,     We believe it is important to maintain a solid Lutheran presence here despite the challenges.   Many congregations in these kinds of areas struggle or close due to economic, demographic, and other challenges.   We pray that by the Lord’s mercy and the generosity and commitment the Holy Spirit will work in the hearts of those who benefit from our ministry and presence here in Boulder Junction and Presque Isle, Wisconsin, so that we can continue for years to come and perhaps even expand our efforts as resources allow.

To that end, we do not apologize but heartily invite your prayers for us as well as your regular financial support.     Many of our members go south for the winter to warmer climates.    Other members work in the very seasonally affected tourism industry.  Likewise the demographics of our area continue to give challenges.    Support from visitors, seasonal worshipers, and other concerned Lutherans helps us continue, take care of needs, and proclaim the gospel in all the places where our members live, work, rest, and serve.   Please consider an occasional or monthly offering to support the Lord’s ongoing service to us here through the Word and Sacraments in an orthodox Lutheran manner.   We are grateful for your support and your support is a response of gratitude for all that the Lord has done for you in body and soul, in everyday life and in salvation from sin and death.    Thank you for your generous and prayerful consideration.

The Lord grant you steadfastness and the peace of Christ in 2021!

We continue with Divine Service on Sundays at 9:00 AM and Bible Study at 10:30 AM following the service.

We appreciate your continued prayers, encouragement, and offerings of financial support in these challenging times, and especially during these more sparse winter months in the northwoods. Our sincere appreciation is extended to you so that we might continue to have a confessional Lutheran presence for the Divine Service and the teaching of God’s Word in Vilas County where many live, retire, vacation, and otherwise visit for recuperation. More people are coming to this area as they are able to telecommute and take advantage of our improving broadband internet capabilities while enjoying the outdoors and the pace of life afforded by the woods of northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan.

The Divine Service: Its History and Theology

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Lincoln, Nebraska is currently using a Bible study on the history and theology of the historic liturgy written by Pastor Frahm. The pastors at Good Shepherd in Lincoln are leading the study discussion. If you were not taught much on the liturgy when you were growing up, take the time to learn more of the meaning of the historic liturgical orders and our heritage not only as Lutherans but as those in line with Christians of the ancient church.

Local Public Service Announcement – time-sensitive

The town of Boulder Junction Economic Development board has been working for some time on expanding broadband internet access for our area. The deadline for upgrade is approaching. Broadband internet is used for business, telecommuting, tele-medicine for doctor appointments, entertainment, on-demand music and tv streaming, and uses greater bandwidth than merely a basic web page or email service. Go to this link below for more information before the upcoming deadline at the end of October, 2020:

BOULDER JUNCTION HIGH SPEED BROADBAND EXPANSION PROJECT

New Bible study Sept 27

We will resume our Sunday morning Bible study sessions on Sept. 27th (about 10:30 AM after Divine Service) with a study on the topic of church and state, Christian citizenship, and religious freedom. Join us!

And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles’ doctrine and fellowship in the breaking of the bread and in the prayers. Acts 2:42

In the midst of everything going on in society and the world-at-large, it is crucial that we keep our eyes fixed upon Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. It is important that we, the branches, remain connected to Christ, the Vine, through the means of grace in the Divine Service. Join us Sunday mornings to hear the life-giving Gospel and be nourished in the resurrected body and blood of Jesus at 9:00 AM. We have catechism instruction available for youth or adults (even retired age) by arrangement with the pastor.
