Holy Trinity is exploring new connections with the Youth Center in Warrenville, where some of the youth, especially those who identify as LGBTQ, are in need of friends and mentors. The plan is to visit and tour the facility in early November to receive an orientation from the volunteer coordinator. Holy Trinity mentor volunteers must be over 21 with no criminal record. Please talk with Carol LaHurd ASAP (email@example.com) if you are willing and able to help.
Wherever you are in your spiritual life you are welcome …
YOU ARE INVITED TO COME AND EXPLORE YOUR SPIRITUAL QUESTIONS WITH OTHERS AT HOLY TRINITY.
Life Together is a communal process of spiritual growth and renewal.
Life Together is designed for those:
who did not grow up Christian and/or have not been baptized;
who are new to Lutheranism, liturgy, or a sacramental tradition;
who are estranged from the church but are now drawn to community and communal worship;
who are sensing a stirring of the Spirit, yet are filled with questions;
who may have grown up Lutheran but didn’t think about it when they were confirmed, and would like to learn more about Christian faith and life in community;
who are parents wanting to grow in their faith as part of the baptismal promises they make on behalf of their children.
LIFE TOGETHER will run from November 2017 – May 2018.
There will be five weeknight sessions on either Monday or Tuesday evenings, depending on participant schedules. Several will take place in homes.
There will be five Sunday morning sessions from 9:00 – 10:40 am on January 21, February 4 and 18, March 4 and 18
For more information, go to:
If you are interested or would like to find out more, please speak to or email Pr. Craig Mueller at HTLakeview (firstname.lastname@example.org or Pr. Ben Adams at HTLoop (email@example.com). Deadline: October 30.
Life Together is a place to bring questions, doubts, and hopes. Rather than being given answers (like a catechism), together we will seek wisdom for our lives from scripture, sacraments, liturgy and other Christian practices.
Please share this information with others you know who may be interested in baptism, returning to church after a period away, or exploring questions of faith in a supportive, open community.
