All Members, Winter Residents, Family and Friends,

          Good Monday Afternoon!  I trust everyone is doing well.  Florida has entered the hot and humid zone this week.  It is going to feel like it is well up in the 90’s this week here in south central Florida. 

          Yesterday, Sunday 6/11 was a great day here at Trinity as we baptized to of Almut Hussmann’s Great Grandaughters!  What a bless it was to be able to participate in this Sacramental act for Isabella and Alessandra! 

          I was asked to remind all the women of the church about the LWML retreat. 

                   The Florida Georgia District LWML will have a Retreat Friday September 22 thru Sunday September 24, 2023

                   Renaissance World Golf Villages  (This is a beautiful resort where we had the District Convention last summer)

                   500 South Legacy Trail

                   St. Augustine, Florida 32092

                             See Sue Turoff for more information and registration forms. 

On Sunday June 25th, 2023, during the Sunday morning worship service Peace Lutheran Church, Okeechobee will be installing Differed Vicar Deon Hull.  Vicar Hull will serve his vicarage there for the next year and I will be serving as his supervisor.  At the end of the year if the congregation desires they can have his Vicarage assignment converted in his first call.  Pray that this opportunity works for both congregation and Vicar Hull and his family. 

          With the arrival of Vicar Hull, Rev. Olckers will be returning here to Trinity and will be assisting with worship and preaching for me periodically and when I am ill, on vacation or simply want a break.  Rev. Olckers has been serving as Pulpit Supply Pastor for Peace, Okeechobee for the past 2 ½ years.  He will continue making visitation and assisting in other areas of ministry as the Lord leads us.   

          Trinity Lutheran Church has entered a contest at Lutheran Church Extension Fund.  We are still in the top three, but it you have not voted it is easy.  Just follow the link below “Facebook” it will take you directly to the page that has a picture of our mural.  Please hit “Like” and you vote will be counted.  We will win a gift card from LCEF if you vote for our Church Mural picture.  Just hit “Like” on the page.           Facebook

Thank you!  (BTW you may want to check out LCEF interest rates as they are pretty good right now.)

          If you haven’t been in church in a while, why not come back now.  Our Worship attendance is lower and plenty of seating.  We live in the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, so we don’t ask where you have been or why you have stayed away, we just rejoice that you have come back.  If someone has slighted you, or you feel like no one cares, that is not the case we miss everyone who is not with us on Sundays.  Remember we all need a little Grace and Forgiveness in our lives. 

          One last thing!  I want to wish all the Fathers, Grandfathers, Great Grandfathers, and Godfathers a very Happy and Bless Father’s Day this coming Sunday, June 18th, 2023! 

Have a great week and make it a great week for someone else as well!

Rev. Richard A. Norris
