Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Our Community Thanksgiving Dinner is fast  approaching! There are several people who have already volunteered to help but we will need even more volunteers.

The dinner will take place on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26th, from 11am – 1:30pm.

We will serve meals in our Fellowship Hall and deliver meals to people who would have         difficulty getting out of their homes.

There will be opportunities to help out on that day, and before. There will be opportunities to provide some of the food, including pies. Look for the sign up sheets to show up on the bulletin boards soon. This event is sponsored by Trondhjem and local businesses.

Please join us and invite your neighbors and friends to our traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

Important Meeting

Dear TLC Member,

On Wed, September 30 we will gather at 6:30 to take a  look at the realities facing Trondhjem Lutheran Church.

Trondhjem is and has been for over 150 years a wonderful place where the gospel comes alive for so many people. It is our task today that this tradition continues. We need to come together in unity and prayer and ask for God’s help to give us discernment and conviction to rise to the challenges that confront us.

Our realities:

  • We are blessed to gather at Trondhjem as God’s children.
  • For the past several years we have been using reserve funds to make our mortgage payments.
  • Over the next ten years we will be making payments for road assessment at around $13,000 per year.
  • We have been blessed by members who have volunteered where cuts were made, including cleaning the church and leading music.
  • Our giving has decreased and we are falling financially further behind.
  • We are blessed to have unique demographics for a church, with many young families to serve and be served.
  • We have building issues including the need to  repair the roof which could cost in the area of $70,000.  Some issues need to be addressed immediately and others that need to be prioritized.
  • The call of a new Pastor will add significantly to our budget. Before we can in good faith, extend a call we need to assess our commitment to the ministry of Trondhjem.

Every voice needs to be heard and all options considered.

Come early and join us for dinner beginning at 5:45.  Wednesday night education/confirmation classes are cancelled in an effort to allow teachers to attend this meeting.  Story and Praise (age 3-3rd grade) will gather from 6-6:30.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

God’s Grace and Blessings.

Quilter’s Notes

Pastor Erik and Mary brought two large boxes of our quilts up to the Lutheran World Relief Service Center last week. He reports that there is currently quite a need for these, due to the many disasters both in America, and in other countries. We share our thanks with all of you who donated fabrics and/or sewed together tops from our “Quilt Top Box” in the Fellowship Hall. This mission work is very dear to our hearts, and when we see how supportive you are and have been, we know you value it also. God bless you all for being a part of this Trondhjem ministry. Each of you is important to its’ success. Whether it is through your donations, your sewing, your time, your purchases at our Quilt sale in November or your prayers, it takes each of us to make God’s work happen. (more…)
