“LIVE” DIVINE SERVICE Each week,
our 10:30 am service will stream live on YouTube! Go to our page on YouTube: “Trinity Lutheran Church Norman, Oklahoma”.
Continued Stewardship Giving during this time
We have several methods to continue your weekly giving, even though we will not meet at Church for a few services. Since the Church’s financial responsibilities will continue, we need to make every effort to continue our giving as best we can. Please send your weekly offerings to the church in one of three ways:
- Mail your offering envelopes (Please no cash) to the Church Office (603 Classen Blvd. Norman, OK. 73071)
- Bring your Offerings to the Church Office (Monday – Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon).
- Use the “Simply Giving” service to give your offerings digitally online.

All communicant members at least 18 years old plan to attend this meeting. Let’s have good attendance! This is a great way for you to participate in the life of your congregation and show support for your elected leaders. Also, this is a great opportunity for you to be involved and active in our appointed tasks.
We will elect new congregation officers for 2020-2021. When you are asked to serve on various boards or council, say “Yes, I will serve gladly and do my part in serving our Lord in this congregation!” We need each of us to do our part!
We also want to thank all of you who have served these past two years and want to acknowledge the work of selfless service you did among us. I know we are all serving through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and in love for one another but we still want to offer each of you a big, “thank you!”

Join us as we go on a Jungle Adventure with Vacation Bible School this Summer.
It’s easy to get lost. That’s why we need Jesus! To make it through this unknown world safely, kids need a guide who can keep them on the right path. At Rainforest Explorers, Jesus is our ultimate guide in the rainforest and our lives. He leads us to the treasure of eternal life, and He’ll never leave us!
VBS will be Sunday, July 26th to Thursday, July 30th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. All kids from 4 years old (as of June 1st) to completed 5th grade are invited to join us as we discover “the depths of the riches…of God! A family dinner will be served from 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. There is no cost to the families for VBS and we welcome all kids to come and hear the Gospel.
We also need volunteers to make this week possible. Last year we had 65 children who attended our Vacation Bible School. If you are older than 5th grade and want to help, there is a job for you!
For more information, to volunteer, or to register go to www.vbsmate.com/tlcnorman or contact Beth Brown firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-6579
50+ ADULT FELLOWSHIP GROUP
With the uncertain forecast concerning the pandemic, it is important to consider the well-being of our 50+ Adult Fellowship Group members. We have decided to cancel our monthly luncheons for June, July, and August for this year. Hopefully, we will be able to continue our monthly pot-luck luncheons and trips in September.
I realize our lives have been put on hold and have become boring on occasion, but as the days have gone by, I am reminded to appreciate our pastor and vicar for their on-line daily devotions, Sunday sermons, week-end communions, calls, keeping in touch, and prayers. We are truly blessed at Trinity with their concerns for the members and their families. It is important for us to keep in touch with one another and pray this pandemic will soon be over.
Stay healthy and safe and God bless each of you.
