Ministry Feature

Trinity Home Missionary Society is celebrating 100 years as a women’s auxiliary arm of  Trinity Lutheran Church. It was established in February, 1919 as an English-speaking option to the Trinity Ladies Aid Society!  The goals and purpose of the group have changed little over these one hundred years. As its name suggests, Trinity Home Missionary has been faithfully aiding Trinity Congregation, families, and our community through Bible study, prayer, education, and service.  In 1942, Trinity Home Missionary became a charter member of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, which is now International, National, District, Zone, and local in scope. The focus of LWML is like that mentioned above and also enables women to actively support mission work around the world through prayer, education, service and the collection of “mites”..

Trinity Home Missionary has promoted the formation of Guilds to assist with local needs and world-wide missions.  Join us on one or more to support the mission.  They are: Dorcas Guild that promotes the work of Lutheran World Relief with quilts, layettes, clothing and soap collections, Good Samaritans that visits shut-ins, Lydia Guild that hand stitches Baptismal napkins, and Ruth Guild that makes lap robes for nursing homes and shut-ins and makes baby quilts.

Trinity Home Missionary has consistently given time and financial donations to the needs of Trinity Church and School, having completely furnished the school kitchen, provided funds and woman power for the church kitchen remodel in the 1960s and is currently planning a major renovation of the church kitchen again.  New generations of women with willing hands and hearts are needed to continue this ministry at Trinity. We thank our mothers and grandmothers for showing us the way! All women of the congregation are welcome to attend our meetings, help with lunches and fundraisers, and work with any of the Guilds as we Serve the Lord with Gladness!
