Trinity Lutheran Church of Ava, member of North American Lutheran Church, is delighted with the response to their annual fundraising breakfast this month. We’re glad the community weathered the storm to join us. You are greatly appreciated.
Trinity recognizes and thanks Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for their gift of matching funds, fifty cents on every dollar
donated. Ava Lions Club is also thanked for their help with groceries.
Proceeds from the breakfast have been ear-marked for the local Options Pregnancy Clinic. Breakfast Chairman, Laura Wittorff, will present the council with a check from Trinity , in the amount of $1,170, later this week.
Joyloraine and all the Trinity people helped make this breakfast a big success. Also, the Sunshine Singers did a lovely concert today at Trinity.
On this 4th Sunday of Easter we began with the Bible readings as follows: Acts 2:42-47, Psalm 23 and the New Testament 1 Peter 2:19-25, Gospel: John 10: 1-10.
Our lector was Pastor Bob Crofton.
Today is known as “The Good Shepherd” Sunday coming from the gospel lesson from John 10-1:10,
and the Psalm 23.
Pastor Wayne Strohschein used the first verse of Psalm 23 as the basis for a sermon on whose voice do we listen to? The point he made was, if we listen to the voice of God then we will not know whether we are experiencing, a mountain top experience or a deep valley experience. If we trust in God as our Shepherd we are never forsaken and can truly proclaim He is not here, He is risen.
Monday at 5 p.m. at the church the Sunshine Singers will meet.
Wednesday 9:30 a.m. women’s workday.
We wish to welcome all visitors and the new members that have joined us.
Please come join us Sundays, as we have adult Bible study at 9:30 a.m., and children Sunday School, the church service at 10:45 a.m.
Communion is the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month and potluck luncheons are on the 1st and 3rd Sundays after the service.
