We will have New Year’s Eve Vespers at Trinity at 6:00 PM. Hope to see you there as we hear the Lord’s Word and pray as we enter 2019 by God’s mercy.
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.

“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])
