Looking For Leaders

Have you ever wondered... · about the ins and outs of Trinity's finances? · who decides what hymns we sing on Sundays? · how many furnaces are in our building? · who determines the Sunday school curriculum? · what happens at new member potlucks? · how Trinity's endowment funds are doing? · what YoCo is all about? Then please consider becoming a member of the church council or one of our committees: Finance, Worship & Music, Property, Children & Family, Outreach, Endowment, or Youth & Family. Serving in a leadership role provides spiritual growth, an appreciation for the workings of the church, and new opportunities to work with fellow members. For more information, contact Joan Anderson, council secretary, at 934-5317 or the church office at 934-4786.

Epiphany officially falls each year on January 6, but we'll be celebrating in worship on the preceding Sunday, January 2. This is the day we Christians celebrate the Wise Men (also known as "Magi") visiting the Christ child with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. During our Coffee Fellowship time, at 9:00 am, you will be able to enjoy some of our own home-made "Kings' Bread" ­ a treat which many people eat to celebrate Epiphany in other parts of the world.

Our services will each be a festive communion worship celebrating Jesus' "epiphany"; that is, His "being revealed" to the nations. We first see this in the coming of the wise men to Bethlehem to visit the child Jesus.

Holiday Vouchers Update & "Thank You!"

Last year, holiday vouchers reached many adults and children in the Saint Peter area. Many thanks to your generous outpouring to people in need. This year, members of Trinity were able to raise $1,606.75 for people in need during these "Holy Days" of Thanksgiving, Advent, and Christmas. In addition to the funds we raised, Thrivent matched every three of our dollars given to the food shelf with an additional dollar ­ increasing these gifts by an additional 33%. Many thanks to you, our members, as well as to Thrivent for your generosity!

January Newsletter

THE PASTOR'S CORNER

The Natwick Epistle

Resolution: a resolve or determination; the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose.

January 2011

. . . .God forgives us day in and day out, over and over. When we fail, God is there to pick us up and dust us off in Jesus' grace. God is there, saying, "So, you've fallen. But, I make all things new in what I choose to do for you in my Son, Jesus. You are my child. Now go! BE my child!" Now, that's gracious tenacity. It is this sort of grace ­ the kind of grace that God uses on us and for us every day of our lives ­ that we must practice using on ourselves. In some ways, we can never hope to keep our own resolutions unless we learn to forgive ourselves for our own mistakes.

SPONSORS

New Year's resolutions. Seems like any number of us make them. Resolutions can be about almost anything. They can range from losing weight, to exercising more, to spending more time with family and friends, to not procrastinate on things that need to get done. I'm sure that any number of people will break those same resolutions that they make in earnest at the beginning of the year. All too often, as soon as a resolution is broken, a person is tempted to think, "I've failed already. This certainly isn't going very well! Perhaps it is best not to make resolutions at all." But, resolutions aren't about perfection. They ARE about identifying the things that one wants for oneself in life. It's only natural to fail; and failure to keep resolutions shouldn't come as a surprise to any of us. After all, we're changing the rules on how we've lived life up to this time. It's likely that we will slip back into well-worn grooves. In fact, it's easier to slip into the old grooves than it is to carve some new ones for ourselves. At its core, `resolution' has, at its root, the word `resolve'. When someone has "resolve" to do something, there should be a sort of stubbornness to one's decision. Or, at least, there SHOULD be a stubbornness to their action; a firmness of purpose; a `stick-to-it-tiveness'. Like I said, resolutions aren't about perfection. They're about persistence. When it comes to the business of making resolutions ­ prepare to fail. The important thing to bear in mind in the making of resolutions is knowing, is having a plan, about what one is going to do when one fails. You see, resolutions are more about tenacity, about getting up again and again, after we have fallen. In reality, resolutions take a lot of forgiveness of ourselves. . .

January 2011

May we each resolve to practice such grace within our lives. A Blessed New Year to each of you! Pastor Eric

Trinity Member Honored & Appreciated

Taking Down Of "The Greens"

www.trinitystpeter.org

What goes up, must come down. Yes, the Christmas season has come to an end and we've celebrated Epiphany. We need help to take down all of the greens around Trinity. If you are interested, sign up (or call the church office @ 934-4786) to be one of our "Christmas Clean-up Crew" to help us package up and put away our greenery for another year. We'll set a time that works best for our volunteers, check the narthex for a sign up sheet. Remember, many hands make light work; consider sharing two hours of your time to help with holiday cleanup at Trinity, your church home.

SERVICE LISTS

All Trinity members share in food preparation and serving duties for funerals and other church events throughout the year. The membership has been divided into 13 groups with designated coordinators for each month. This allows one group to have a month off each year. Groups move up one month each year as well, so that you are not serving in the same month each year. This list is also used to secure ushers. When your assistance is needed, a coordinator will contact you. January 2011

We received our second check in the middle of December from "GoodSearch.com". The check total was $142.58 and will be used towards Youth and Family Ministry in our congregation. We're hoping to double that amount this next year ­ but we need your help! Think of it! How much could be generated if every member of Trinity earned a penny each time they searched the Internet? Or how about if a percentage of every purchase you made online went to support Youth and Family ministry here at Trinity? Well, it can! And it does! GoodSearch.com is a Yahoo-powered search engine that donates half its advertising revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate. Use it just as you would any search engine, get quality search results from Yahoo, and watch the donations add up! GoodShop.com is a new online shopping mall which donates up to 37 percent of each purchase to your favorite cause! Hundreds of great stores including Amazon, Target, Gap, Best Buy, ebay, Macy's, and Barnes & Noble have teamed up with GoodShop and every time you place an order, you'll be supporting Trinity's Youth and Family ministry. Just go to www.goodsearch.com and be sure to enter "Trinity Lutheran Church ­ Saint Peter" as the charity you want to support. And, be sure to spread the word!

Warm up with a mug of Fair Trade Coffee or Tea! We know many of you have discovered and enjoyed the Fair Trade coffee, tea, chocolate, and other items that are available for sale in the church narthex by the Library. Consider sharing a cup with a family member or friend during one of these cold winter days. If you've never checked out the Fair Trade display in the narthex, then please do so!

Bake Sale Thanks

Many, many thanks to all who baked and all who helped with our St. Lucia Bake Sale. The variety of baked goods was impressive, our workers were dedicated and we had many satisfied shoppers. The proceeds were shared with Trinity Youth, each of our organizations earning about $200. Despite the wintery weather we had a successful sale and we couldn't have done it without each of your contributions. Thank you so much.

Thankoffering Sunday

January 2011

Sunday, January Trinity Women will conduct the worship service as part of their yearly "Thankoffering" service. Thankoffering envelopes will be available for anyone wishing to contribute to this special offering to the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church (WELCA).

Thankoffering boxes are available to take home for anyone wishing to have a means for giving thanks during the coming year. Please find both envelopes and boxes on the counter outside the office.

We give special thanks to Bea Martinson, Helga Haedt, Marilyn Roberts and Rosemary Mickelson for the memories they brought to us. Donna Rydeen, our caterer, so willingly gave her quiche recipe for us to share with you. Enjoy! It is delicious. Breakfast Quiche 9 inch pie shell unbaked ½ pound pork sausage 1 cup broccoli 1 ½ cups shredded cheese 6 eggs 1 ½ cups half and half Salt and pepper to taste Brown pork sausage.

Sponsor A Sunday School Room

Thank you to those families who have already sponsored a room. We are still looking for families/individuals willing to help us pay for the supplies that the students and teachers use to learn about God's love in creative ways. When you sponsor a Sunday school room by making a donation, you and/or your family will get your name posted by a classroom. Donation slips and more details can be found in the narthex. You may leave your donation in the church office.

We discovered a few weekends ago with the cancellation of the program's dress rehearsal, Sunday school on the 12th, and the rescheduling of the Christmas Program that our means of communicating this important information was not as clear or as smooth as it could've been. In the future, we will make every effort to include this information on Trinity's website at www.trinitystpeter.org. Please check it often, especially during inclement weather, as we will attempt to make changes as quickly as these decisions are made. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Cancelling Of Sunday School Related Events

Confirmation returns on January 5th ­ we will be studying the Apostle's Creed AND 9th Graders will be having Peer Ministry Training. Remember Confirmation begins at 6:15 pm! If you have questions, talk to Pastor Eric or Erika. Parents: Remember to join us on January 19th for our 3rd Parent's Night (6:15-8pm).
