3rd Grade Bible Presentation
At a child’s baptism, solemn promises are made to the Lord. Do you remember?
In Christian love, you presented your child for Holy Baptism. As Christian parents, it is your calling to keep these sacred promises:
- To faithfully bring them to the services of God's house
- To teach them the Lord's Prayer, the Creed and the Ten Commandments.
- To place in their hands the Holy Scriptures
- And to provide for their instruction in the Christian faith.
It is that third promise, the one to place in their hands the Holy Scriptures, that your child is truly ready to receive.
At every baptism that takes place at Trinity, our members also make a solemn promise. Trinity promises to pray for and assist Christian parents in the joyful privilege of raising their children in Christ.
To that end, Trinity has provides an annual “workshop” created especially for parents of children in third grade which emphasizes the importance of incorporating God's Word into daily family life. The workshop takes place one week prior to the actual presentation of the Bibles to the third grade children - by their parents - in the weekend worship services.

Trinity Lutheran Freistadt hosts a weekend marriage retreat at the Scandinavian Lodge in Sister Bay, Door County each autumn. This year's retreat is scheduled for Friday through Sunday, September 30th-October 2nd. There is no registration or programming cost for this retreat. Your only expenses are your lodging and meals. A Friday evening wine-and-cheese tasting party is included, as well as continental breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Trinity's marriage retreats are intentionally scheduled to include a large amount of free time to allow you to enjoy Wisconsin's beautiful Door County in the fall. There is so much to do! Great restaurants, art galleries, golf courses, biking and hiking trails, wineries, lighthouse tours, and so much more!
Click HERE to register for the retreat. (Remember - there is NO registration fee!)
You must book your room by calling the Scandinavian Lodge at 1-888-64LODGE. Make sure you mention that you are part of Trinity's Couples' Retreat, as we have a number of rooms set aside for our group.
