GUEST PASTOR—MARKUS WILHELM
I was born in East Berlin, in communist German Democratic Republic and grew up near the town of Wittenberg, where Martin Luther started the Reformation 500 years ago. A life-long Christian of the Lutheran variety, I came to Canada in 1979 with my parents and two siblings, attended ABJ High School in Sherwood Park, and went to Camrose Lutheran College before graduating with a B.A. in history from the U of A. I studied theology at Tuebingen University, Germany, and at the Lutheran Seminary in Saskatoon. On August 2nd, 1992, I was ordained a pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. I have been married for 26 years to Andrea, a linguist specializing in the language of one of Canada’s Dene peoples. Our daughter Ella is presently starting her PhD in Reformation era literature at the University of Chicago. I enjoy the outdoors on foot, on bicycle, in the garden, in the woods, and in a canoe. I am a passionate advocate for the conservation of creation. My wife and I are both fans of “Jane the Virgin” and I like to read lots of theology, history and fiction.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
Thank you to our most amazing HOSPITALITY TEAM!
Every Sunday, they are ones who greet you coming into
the foyer and sanctuary, ensure you have an excellent cup of
hot coffee waiting for you, answer your questions at the info desk, help you check books out of the bookpatch and so much more!
When you see them around today, please take a minute to let them know how much you appreciate what they do!
MEXICO MISSION TEAM
The Mexico Mission Team is off! They will be traveling to the area of San Quintin, Mexico to two houses for two families. One team will be an adult team and the other will be a youth team. How exciting!
They will partner with YWAM and HEART to build the houses.
They will also partner with a team from Zion church in Edmonton, who came on our build last year and has decided to come once again. Please partner with us in prayer, specifically praying for the ministries we are partnering with, the people we are building for, and our teams
SAVE THE DATE!
The Trinity Golf Tournament is coming soon! It will be hosted again by the Eagle Rock Gold Course on September 24th, 2017. Stay tuned for more details coming soon. Have questions? Please contact Pat L.
TRINITY YOUTH GROUP (Gr.7-12)
Well folks, youth is officially wrapped up until September. What does that mean? Well let me tell you! It means that your summer is about to begin. Long days in the sun, hanging out with friends around town, ice cold slurpees cooling you down, and not a care in the world. Sure, there are family vacations and long car rides ahead, but what about when you’re home?
Let me level with you, sometimes in the summer you get bored. There are only so many family channel re-runs you can watch before they get old… so why not email Kev and he can set up a hang out!
Here’s the deal, if you hang out with Kev this summer you get a free slurpee. I’d take deal if I were you!
Enjoy your summer!
Questions? Please email Kevin: firstname.lastname@example.org
TRINITY KIDS & PARENTS
Summer Services: July marks the beginning of our summer services here at Trinity Kids. What does that mean you ask? The first Sunday of every month will be a Family Service. For all the other Sundays, preschool to grade 6 begin upstairs with their parents and are dismissed after the Children’s Moment for summer learning and fun!
Nursery and Toddler rooms are open as usual.
ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS Grades 1-6
Camp #2 — July 24-28
We’re gearing up for another awesome week of camp at Trinity!! There will be 52 children and 17 plus leaders giving their all to make it the best week possible. The Skill tracks the kids will be learning are: Ukelele, Poi Balls (a Maorian, New Zealand artform), archery, dance, and baking.
Please be with us in prayer that all will go smoothly once again and that the kids will have an amazing week! Also pray for the leaders and all those involved so they will have enough energy and be blessed. Thank you!
