Trinity at 150 – For Generations to Come
 “We will tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord,
 and God’s might,
and the wonders that God has done.” Psalm 78:4
Preparing for generations to come is a process that never really ends. As we near Trinity’s 150th Anniversary, we want to honor the rich history of this congregation by preparing for the next 50 years of mission in Christ’s name. The following is information about Trinity's plan to embark on an exciting campaign to raise funds for our building renovations and the Bihar project.

Project Budget: $3,600,000

Building Renovations - Re-imagining our building to meet current and future ministry needs
  • an elevator to provide full accessibility to the education wing and front of the sanctuary
  • a welcoming/gathering space on the main level for large group gatherings and connecting before and after worship
  • additional small group spaces for circles, bibles studies and community groups
  • an effective HVAC system in the education wing
  • a larger youth room and more accessible choir/music room
  • a sheltered drop-off space along the east side of the building
  • completion of the last tuck-pointing phase
  • Building Renovations
Sanctuary Technology - Improving sound and video in the sanctuary while preserving the beauty of the space
  • replace outdated sound equipment and personal listening devices
  • improve video projection and integrate equipment to be less visually obtrusive
  • install video streaming equipment to simulcast services for broader outreach, the homebound and those wintering away
  • Sanctuary Sound/Video Improvements 
Bihar Project - Hunger relief in Bihar, India thru Lutheran World Relief
  • a partnership among 10 large ELCA churches and Lutheran World Relief to end hunger in the region of Bihar, India
  • empowering local women with advanced farming techniques, high-yield seeds, and community “self-help” groups

Trinity at 150 - Takes another step forward 

The Trinity Construction Committee, under the direction of the congregational council, met last week to
interview potential contractors for the Trinity at 150 building renovation project. After careful deliberation,
the committee chose to proceed with Snyder Construction of Clear Lake as a contractor. They will immediately
begin work with Bergland and Cram Architects and the Construction Committee in an effort to break ground
on renovations by late summer, early fall. Thank you for your prayers and support as we seek to share the love of
Christ for generations to come.
