The Altar guild was organized in 1985. Members of the guild take
care of maintaining the paraments and altar linens, as well as the
brass altar and chancel appointments. The organization is also responsible
for changing the paraments according to colors appropriate for the
particular season of the church year. Meetings of this group are
held four times a year usually on the first Saturday morning of
the month in which the meeting is held, at 9:00 o'clock.
Trinity's has had a choir since the church was organized. The choir
sings on the first and third Sundays of each month during the months
of September through the end of May, and at special services. Rehearsals
are held at the church on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m.
Trinity has three Bible study circles which meet monthly in the
homes of members. While Bible Study is the principal activity of
each circle, the groups also adopt service and financial projects
each year, and they are affiliated with the LWML. The Martha Circle
is an evening circle, and it meets on the third Tuesday of each
month at 7:30 p.m. The Esther Circle is a day circle, and meets
on the third Monday of each month at 1:30 p.m. The Ruth Circle is
also a day circle which meets on the third Thursday of each month,
also at 1:30 p.m.
JUNIOR YOUTH GROUP
A Junior Youth Group was organized about 1984. This group meets
the third Sunday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Junior Youth meetings
bring members together for Bible Study, fellowship and games. The
Junior Youth is comprised of members who are in grades five through
LUTHERAN YOUTH FELLOWSHIP
The Lutheran Youth Fellowship, also known as the Youth Group, was
organized in 1938 as the Young People's Society. It was also known
as the Walther League at one time. Confirmed youth of the congregation
are members of this group, which meets the first Sunday evening
of each month at the church, usually at 7:00 p.m. A Bible Study
or devotional period is held, followed by games and fellowship.
The new church provides a Youth Room for these activities. Ping-pong
table and foosball were recently placed in this room for games.
Trinity's Men's Club was organized in 1949. This organization meets
for Bible study and fellowship in the church fellowship hall on
the third Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. The men's club actively
supports The Lutheran Laymen's League and the Lutheran Hour, which
is the radio ministry arm of the LLL. Two fund raising events are
held each year to provide funds for projects. A chili dinner is
held in the fall, and a chicken dinner in the early spring. The
club supports various mission projects.
Trinity's missionary society was started in March of 1952. The society
has membership in the LWML, and is a member of the Sedalia Zone
of that organization. The society administers the serving of fellowship
luncheons after funeral services, and enlists many other women in
the congregation to assist in the preparation and serving of food
at these meals. The society meets on the first Wednesday of each
month at 7:30, except during the seasons of Advent and Lent, when
the meetings are moved to an alternate evening.
