|MEMORIAL AND GIFT OPPORTUNITIES/ IDEAS||
You are invited to consider gifts not only to the local ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church but also gifts that reach out into the wider areas of the Church’s life and ministry. These are suggestions and are by no means a complete listing of memorial gift possibilities. All purchases are to be made with the guidance and approval of Trinity’s church council and others in authority. Plaques are no longer placed on memorial items. Names of persons for whom memorials and other special gifts are given will be acknowledged in The Chimes, Trinity’s monthly newsletter.
