Directions to our church

Visit us on:

Candle Sale Fundraiser:

The Confirmation Class is having a Candle Sale Fundraiser to help pay for Summer Camp at Lake Chautauqua Lutheran Camp.  They will earn a portion of all sales!  Please consider making a purchase to help offset the cost of camp.  A brochure & order form are on the table in the Narthex.  Orders will be collected through Sunday, June 4th & checks are to be made payable to Trinity.  Thank you for your consideration and help towards our Confirmation Class.

Memorial Fund Request for the One Call System:

In an effort to continue the One Call System, I'm looking for a Memorial Fund taht would like to pay for the next entire year of service, beginning June 2017.  The greeting would be changed to name your loved one and the cost for this service is $600.00.  If you are interested, please feel free to contact Lisa Kaminski at either 542-4150 or via email at valentine214@earthlink.net where I can inform you of the balance of any individual Memorial Fund.



Trinity and St. John’s is once again participating in the Akron Chamber of Commerce Sidewalk Sale being held on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.   Profits made from the sale of our “Buck a Box” will go into the General Church Funds and can be used at the discretion of the Counsel.


We need ITEMS (worth more than $1.00); BOXES of all kinds (cereal, shoe boxes, toothpaste boxes, etc.); NEWSPAPERS (preferably bright colors); and TIME!  THANKS to everyone who has donated so far!


There is one more thing to do prior to the sale.....WRAP!  At this point, we have most of the items wrapped....thanks to your cooperation.  However, there are still some items that need wrapping and marking.  If you are able to help, we will be finishing up on FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 9th at the church; beginning at 9:00 a.m.   It shouldn't take more than 2 hours to finish everything up. 


If you are able to give an hour of your time on Saturday, the 10th, to “man the stand” please sign the sheet in the Narthex.


If you have any questions, speak with Sue Kidder or Donna Kumpf.  Thank you.
