Jesse and Larisa Bangs and their children Sebi and Ciprian, members of Trinity, will be heading to Romania in the fall of 2015 to initiate a missions outreach with Larisa’s sister and brother-in-law, Cornel and Mihaela Opinca. Their plan is to open a center which ministers to the spiritual and physical needs of the community around them, with a special emphasis on children from poor families and minority backgrounds.
They would like to open a house in which a small number of children from the surrounding community will be housed and educated. The targeted children will be from troubled and impoverished homes, who would normally attend school intermittently and who do not normally receive healthy or sufficient food, financial support, or a stable home environment. While present at the house, the children will be taught basic life skills, aided with schoolwork, instructed in Christian principles, and directed on ways to live a healthy, Christian life.
When children are enrolled in this center, a parallel program with the parents of the children will be set up to offer them spiritual counseling, education on healthy life choices, and other forms of support to the families, hopefully allowing children to return to a more stable and functional household after their time in the center.
You, your family, and your friends are all invited to help support this mission and vision! A pancake breakfast benefit will be held on Sunday, June 7th at 10:30 am in the Trinity Church fellowship hall, sponsored by the Human Care Board and Trinity Crafters.

Sunday, May 10, Pastor Christensen will be starting a new Sunday morning Bible study (10:30 am) on the Gospel according to St. John. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.
The Stewardship Board encourages all Trinity members to attend a presentation to be given by Marc Rieke (who assisted in our current campaign) detailing options we have going forward in regard to another “capital debt reduction campaign”. Our current campaign will be completed on December 31, 2015. Marc will give a presentation after church fellowship on May 31st. Also on that date, a voters meeting will be held immediately following Marc’s presentation and one of the items on the agenda will be to decide whether or not to move forward with another three-year campaign. A decision at that time would allow ample time to complete any needed planning, meetings, etc. If you have questions in regard to this, please see a member of the Stewardship Board. Thank you!
