"

From the Pastor: For many folks, May can be one of the busiest months of the year: Confirmations and graduations, Mother's Day and opening fishing, Memorial Day and end of school year with all the change that brings. The Church Year calendar is also filled up this month with Ascension Day (14th), Pentecost Sunday (24th) and Trinity Sunday (31st). Unfortunately, many also consider this the beginning of vacation time in the church year. Sunday attendance and offerings tend to dip to an annual low point during the next three months. For those of you who will be spending weekends away from home during the summer, let me remind you to include Monday evening worship, beginning June 1st, at 6:00 on your schedules. Also during the month of May here at church:

LCEF (Lutheran Church Extension Fund) Sunday on May 10th George Miller, LCEF vice president and Gift Planning Counselor from the MN North District office, will be here again to discuss and answer questions about Trinity's 'Shared Blessings' rebate program. During Sunday School hour that day, he will also present information about benefits of estate planning both to donors and recipients. (See the related

"More Than Enough" articles in our monthly newsletter) High School Graduate Recognition on May 17th As a way of saying

'Congratulations' to graduating high school seniors, we would like to honor them at a reception in our fellowship hall between services, and also have them sit together in our 10:30 a.m. worship service. It's an impressive accomplishment they've achieved, and an important time of transition in their lives. This senior class has also played an important part in the revitalization of our youth program. Join us in letting them know we support them in their future endeavors. Names of graduates are listed elsewhere in this newsletter. A Personal Note Both Nancy and I express our appreciation for the many cards, prayers and expressions of sympathy we received at the time of Nancy's mother's death on April 19th. Having just celebrated the victory of our Lord's resurrection 2 Sundays earlier, it was indeed comforting to commend Carmen into God's hands, sending her off to the place prepared for her in heaven. During the previous month, six of our own members made the same journey, giving Pastor Harvey and me the opportunity to share the same hope with loved ones. What joy is ours!

"If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep." (I Cor. 15:19-20)

“Sharing the Caring Christ With All People”

Sauk Rapids, MN

DCO CORNER:

This month I’d like to share some thoughts with you from the convention I attended. It was the 22nd MN North District Convention of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and was held at Madden’s on Gull Lake, Brainerd from April 13-15. The Theme was, “Word of Truth, to All Truth Lead Us” based on Isaiah 2:2-4.

I served on Floor Committee #1 Evangelism, Missions and Stewardship. We presented 8 resolutions to the convention and all were passed. Resolutions 1-1 and 1-2 encouraged congregations to plant new churches and ministries and to be mindful of the opportunities to reach ethnic groups. Resolution 1-3 asked the MNN District to continue to work with LCMS Rural Small Town Ministry for resources and guidance to assist congregations that are struggling in rural settings. Resolution 1-4, 1-7 and 1-8 were all related to stewardship issues. Congregations were encouraged to use stewardship materials provided by the Division Parish Life and Nurture so that all congregations can grow in the grace of giving. The resolutions also encouraged congregations to make use of the Lutheran Church Extension Fund and our District Gift Planning Service. Resolution 1-5 and 1-6 addressed the need for congregations to assist connecting college students to campus ministries and that the district continues to support campus ministries and to keep its policy of not placing campus ministries in the subsidized category of reducing subsidy over time. Rev. Dr. Don Fondow was re-elected to serve as the MNN District President. Vice-Presidential elections were held and Rev. Dr. Karl Weber was elected first VP; Rev. Paul Cloeter was elected second VP (congratulations Pastor Paul); and Rev. Kirk Lee was elected third VP. President Don Fondow spoke Tuesday afternoon. He acknowledged that the world we live in today is a challenging one. From the relativity of modernism to the changeable spirituality inside of people, the abandonment of absolute truth has led to chaos and disorder in the world. He pointed us to the absolute Truth who was made incarnate for us, lived and was crucified. This Man rose again and gained our salvation. This is Truth. It is undeniable. The knowledge of this Truth is a gift from God through the Holy Spirit. Pres. Fondow encouraged us to continue speaking this Truth to the world with vigor. As there is no other name under heaven given by which we must be saved, we must share this Truth no matter the challenges. The reality of our salvation compels us speak Truth to those around us. Though times change, our God does not abandon us and has promised to be with us to the end of the age, and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. This is our privilege and honor, to share in this Truth and message. It is the power of God for salvation to all who believe. I enjoyed the convention and was encouraged with the priorities the convention set and was uplifted by the study of God’s Word and Worship. I also enjoyed the fellowship the convention provided so that I could connect with old friends and make some new ones too.

“Sharing the Caring Christ With All People”

Sauk Rapids, MN

Risen – Ascended - Glorified! Worship and Music Notes The Easter season was early this year, which means that three other “holidays” are also early. That would be ‘The Ascension of our Lord’ (observed on Sunday, May 17th), ‘The Day of Pentecost’, and ‘The Holy Trinity’. Rarely do all three events happen in May. It is an opportunity for more people to join in worship and celebrate these days before the busy activities of summer take over. Many people do not give these special days much thought. I would challenge you to dig into these events and grow in appreciation for how significant these special events in our liturgical year are. Our lessons for each Sunday focus on the ministry of the early church, the future glories and splendor of heaven, and the instruction and lessons taught to the disciples on Jesus’ remaining earthly days. There are whole sections in our hymnal devoted to hymns based on these themes, not to mention references to these days in the devotions in “Portals of Prayer”, and “The Lutheran Hour” broadcasts. I look forward to preparing for these worship services with Pastor Paul and learning more on these lessons during the Bible Study time on Tuesday mornings. One of my favorite hymns tied to the Ascension is found in the Redeemer section of our hymnal; “Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor” LSB 534. It accomplished in four verses to tell of salvation and cleansing from the sacrifice and resurrection of Christ taking us to the final statement of faith; “Ris’n, ascended, glorified!” What better way to declare the ascension of our Lord? My favorite Pentecost hymn is LSB 501, “Come Down, O Love Divine”. The first verse begins with an invitation to the Holy Spirit to “Come down, O Love divine; seek Thou this soul of mind”, and verse four ends with “No soul can guess His grace till it becomes the place Where-in the Holy Spirit makes His dwelling”. Be filled with the Holy Spirit! And for Trinity Sunday? “Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty! God in three persons, blessed Trinity!” Amen. (LSB 507) It is my prayer that our church would continue in the Easter celebration and fill the pews with worshippers throughout the entire “holiday” season which has no end. Fill the pews? What has happened to involvement and participation? A devotional by Ken Klaus from The Lutheran Hour touched me: We need to be thankful that when it came to getting involved, the Lord Jesus didn't wait around for somebody else to make the necessary sacrifice to save us from our sins. Seeing that we had been kidnapped by sin, the devil and death, He came into this world to sacrifice Himself for us. He came and kicked open the door which gave us forgiveness and freedom. Now He asks all thankful hearts to get involved too. He wants us to get involved, so lost souls might see our gratitude and be brought into a new and saving relationship with the LORD.

As the Psalmist says -the Lord has rescued us and for that reason we will sing His praises. “Lord, I love the habitation of Your house, the place where Your glory dwells.” To God be the GloryDaniel Reineke, Music Director (320)656-0963 [email protected] Mark A.

Upcoming Middle School Youth Events

Planned Giving Stories for Christian Stewards While visiting the Wills Planner on LCEF's website, June, a surviving spouse, came across the idea of a Give it Twice Trust. She contacted LCEF for mor e infor mation and talked with a gift planner who explained the concept as a way to first give income to children through a trust and then transfer the trust balance to charity in the future. June: Fred and I talk ed about this before he passed away. We both agreed that we wanted to treat each of our four children equally and also provide a benefit to our church.

May 6. (Wed) Meet at Trinity @ 6pm for DODGEBALL. We will carpool to Prince of Peace for this event. June 22. (Mon) Valleyfair. Carpool and chaperone help is needed.

Friends are always welcome! Thanks!

The gift planner told June that with her estate of $800,000 she would have the ability to do something significant for both her family and her church. June was concerned because while her three older children are financially responsible, her youngest, Jim, "spends money like water." June was afraid that if Jim were to receive cash in a lump sum he would spend it right away. The gift planner explained that the "Give It Twice" plan could be very helpful. June could transfer $400,000 from her IRA at death to the trust. Her children would each receive one-fourth of the income from the trust over 20 years. That would give Jim a chance to learn to save and invest. After that time, the trust balance would benefit her church. In addition, by using her IRA, June could save on income tax because the special trust is tax-exempt. June: I established a Give it T wice T rust and was thrilled with the plan. The prospect of helping my four children and my church made me happy and I knew that it was the right thing to do.
