Trinity Partners with Bethany Lutheran Church

Joining In His Mission – TOGETHER! 
Trinity Partners with Bethany Lutheran Church in Milwaukee!

Bethany Lutheran Church, located on 38th and Lloyd Street in Milwaukee, was at one time the single largest Missouri Synod Lutheran congregation in the city. But like many Lutheran churches in Milwaukee, it has seen its membership decline over the years, and with fewer people attending, there are less financial resources to maintain the physical property.
But where many Lutheran churches under similar circumstances have been forced to close their doors, Bethany is committed to remaining alive and active in its community. Under the leadership of Pastor Christian Ikanih, Bethany is actively ministering to the homeless, feeding the hungry, and bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who do not know him.
Trinity finds itself with the unique opportunity to provide needed financial assistance with some immediate needs they are experiencing. One such need is the repair or replacement of their dishwasher. Bethany provides meals on a monthly basis for people in their community. Without a working dishwasher, they cannot remain licensed to provide these meals. Cost estimates are in the neighborhood of $1,000. 
We are inviting Trinity members to consider making a contribution toward Bethany’s dishwasher situation.   Please pray about how you might be able to help. If you would like to make a contribution, checks should be made payable to Trinity Lutheran Church, with “Bethany Dishwasher” on the memo line. Please send them to the attention of Mrs. Kathy Adams. Beyond this repair, Bethany’s needs include roofing, plumbing, flooring, and plastering. We have already designated Bethany as the recipient of our food collection barrel, located at the bottom of the Gathering Room steps. Additionally, Trinity is working with Pastor Ikanih, South Wisconsin District Missions Executive Rev. Peter Kelm, and other LCMS Lutheran churches in the Greater Milwaukee area to seek strategies and solutions that will provide longer term support for Bethany.
Below is a recent piece from Fox Six News about Pastor Ikanih and the ministry of Bethany. Lastly, Watch for announcements of future efforts for us at Trinity to work with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Bethany Lutheran Church.

"Sacred Marriage" Bible Study


If you didn't get the opportunity to join us for the first session of "Sacred Marriage" - you can view the video session here.  

Join us for the remaining four weeks of this study as we explore the book of the same title by Gary Thomas, and consider the thought that God has designed marriage not to make us happy, but to make us holy.  This study is led by Rick Adams on Sunday mornings, 9:25 a.m. in Room 304 (Miss Jahr's classroom.)

Lessons from the Life of Luther

 A 4-week presentation by
Rev. Dr. Timothy Maschke
Professor of Theology at Concordia University Wisconsin
Trinity’s Sanctuary • 6:30-8:00 PM
On the Wednesday Evenings of January 7, 14, 21, & 28, 2015

As we approach the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017, Dr. Maschke, a Luther scholar from Concordia University Wisconsin, will provide glimpses into the life and legacy of Martin Luther. Each week we will look at a distinct aspect of Luther’s life and the lasting impact he has had on our world today. Topics will include his battles with the devil and the papacy, the place of education in a Christian society and family life, and the profound role of the laity Luther emphasized for the church. Specific documents from Luther will be surveyed as well as several of his hymns.

There is no admission charge, but a free will offering will be taken.

Week 1- Did Luther really throw an inkwell at the Devil? Would Luther have a blog or used Twitter, if he were alive today? Why did Luther switch his studies from law to theology? Our first session will focus on Luther's life and times, including a look at his 95 Theses.

Week 2- Why did Luther encourage "public education"? Would he do so today? For whom did he write catechisms? Luther spent most of his life in the classroom. That had a significant impact on his life. His educational philosophy and pedagogical tools will be sampled in our session this week.

Week 3- What is the value of the Christian family? How can work be done to God's glory? Why did Luther say a milkmaid could do more for God than a monk? Answers to these and other home-and-job-related questions will be presented and discussed in our study of Luther’s life and legacy.

Week 4- Did Luther use drinking songs as a base for his hymns? How would Luther react to our Sunday services? Why did Luther teach his barber to pray? What are essential resources for spiritual growth from Luther’s perspective? In this last week, we will spend some time on Luther's ideas of worship and praise and spiritual nurture.
