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.
