Church Notes for August 25, 2019


Computer Technology Class:  Scott Graham will be holding a weekly collaboration and discussion of computer technology, encouraging knowledge and growth in technology through hands-on experience at Trinity Lutheran Church.  This program will be an eight-week session from September 7 – October 26.  It will be held from 9:30-10:30 am on Saturday mornings and is open to all individuals who are middle school age and older, who are wanting to learn more about computer technology.  For further information see the flyer on the bulletin board or contact Scott at

August 30 at 7:00 pm:  Budget Committee Meeting.  Also, if you can check with other board members on their position so we can start working on finding people for boards.  Thanks!  Matt Carstens (515-298-1748)

We would like to develop a list of people that would be willing to help take meals to those members that could use help from time to time.  If you are interested in helping with this, please contact Darla.

Would anyone be willing to chaperone middle schoolers at the Webb House from 7-9 pm on a Friday evening or one Friday for several months?  Please contact Darla if interested.

Meals on Wheels:  A sign-up sheet to deliver Meals on Wheels in September is posted on the rolling bulletin board.  We need two people for each week.  Very few have signed up at this time and we have five weeks to fill.  Please sign up if you would like to help.

Trinity Lutheran Church and Schools in Boone is celebrating Pastor Watkins’ 40 years in God’s Ministry and 24 years as Senior Pastor at Trinity, on Sunday, September 15th.  Come for coffee and Sunday School at 9:00 am, followed by service at 10:00.  A public reception will follow from 1-3 pm at Cedar Pointe Golf Club in Boone.  Best Ball Golf will be after the reception for those wanting to play.

Building Healthy Families:  Did You Know:  What’s your favorite cookie?  Over 53% of Americans choose chocolate chip.  Whatever your favorite, bake a batch this week to share.  Perhaps with an elderly couple who sit beside you at church, a teen who just went off to college, or your pastor in appreciation for him.  Continue to find ways to share God’s love with others.  The smallest of gestures can make a big difference!     Lutheran Family Service  (515) 573-3138
