After nearly 30 years in pastoral ministry and 40 years of service in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Trinity Lutheran Church in Glenwood, IA is honored to host "A Journey of Blessings" retirement celebration for Pastor Robert Lindau on August 8. The retirement celebration will begin immediately following our 9:00 am worship service and will feature lunch, desserts, and a short program. Please join us on this day of celebration and thanksgiving for Pastor Lindau’s many years of faithful service.

One of our partners, Faith, Sioux City and Pastor Ralph Shorey, are requesting our assistance in helping with a mission outreach effort in connection with the impending RAGBRAI.  Below you will find a suggested bulletin announcement regarding their prayer booth for Sunday, July 25.  They would appreciate it, as would I (Pastor Mark Gerken), if you could share the announcement in your bulletin this coming weekend, post on your website, or distribute in any other way you see fit.  May the Lord bless our efforts to connect others to Christ!
RAGBRAI Prayer Booth:  Faith Lutheran Church, 3101 Hamilton Blvd. in Sioux City, IA  will be sponsoring a prayer booth for all bikers as RAGBRAI begins on Sunday, July 25.  If you or a friend are planning on making this great bike trek across Iowa stop at the church parking lot between 5:30-8:00 a.m.  As prayers for blessings on your road trip are offered up to the Lord, we also encourage individual prayer requests.  In case of rain, Faith’s prayer booth will meet in the Sanctuary.  God bless!
