Trinity is a congregation gathered by Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit around His saving Word and life-giving Sacraments.         
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As a faithful congregation of the Oklahoma District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod we joyfully hold to the teachings of the Scriptures as they are confessed in the Small Catechism of Martin Luther, the Augsburg Confession and the entire Book of Concord of 1580.

So do not fear, for I am with  you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand . Isaiah 41:10
  
As we look at our Sunday bulletin and see our ever lengthening list of people who are ill or in need and also as we look at the concerns for our community and country, we see an ever increasing need for prayer. Therefore, as your Pastor, I call each of you to increase your prayers in this time of need. 
   
 
Have you ever noticed the beautiful flower arrangements on the altar during our services? These are just another example of God’s beauty and love. Each month, these are provided by congregation members in honor or in memory of loved ones. If this is something you would be interested in, look for the flower signup sheet in the Narthex or contact any altar committee member for details. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and helping to make our services even more beautiful. 
 
Thank you,   The Altar Committee   
 
 
 
 
February 14th– Remember Lent Begins 
 
I know February 14th is Valentine’s Day and on Valentine’s Day, we are to remember that special loved one in our lives. However, this year on February 14th we also begin the Lenten journey where the one who loves us the most, Jesus Christ, is led to Jerusalem and His cross on Calvary’s Mountain. 
 
Therefore, this year join us in “The Lenten Journey” where we travel with Christ from the Mount of Transfiguration to Jerusalem where Jesus will face the cross and the grave for our sake. 
 
This year’s theme focuses upon The Journey, though perhaps not in the way we usually walk it. 
             Our theme is – “RETURN FROM EXILE: A Lenten Journey. 
                             
Our Schedule is as follows… 
 
Wednesday – February 14th – With Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion. Heart to Heart: Sackcloth and Ashes, The Robes of Righteousness

THRIVENT NEWS 
 
All Thrivent members have 2 Action Teams that they can do each year. It is a $250 money card to use as seed money to help get a project started. The youth has used this money for various projects they have done. If every Thrivent member would get this money and use on projects, think how much impact we could have on El Reno. To apply go to the Thrivent website and look for Action Team. It is relatively easy, just make sure you say how the money will be used. 
Remember all Thrivent Choice Dollars must be designated before March 31stor you will lose it. Trinity Lutheran Church and Trinity Preschool are on the list, along with thousands of other organizations across the country. Let’s designate 100% of our money. Any questions see Loren O’Hara.
