Recently my son graduated from 8th grade. It was a day of celebration, but it was also a day marked with a tinge of sadness. Why? A few years back I was introduced to a phrase called “little deaths” in a book by Walter Wangrerin titled “Mourning into Dancing.” The book emphasized that grief hits us not only with the death of a loved one, but also during a number of transitions in life. Some “little deaths” include the perceived loss of one’s youth, a move, the end of a personal or work related dream, divorce, a toddler transitioning to school, retirement, and the list goes on. The Bible has much to say about Jesus giving life to the dying. Yet, we miss out on the wonder and joy of these passages if they are only meaningful in the last moments of life.
Here are just a few life giving passages that I pray will encourage you in the midst of life’s “little deaths:”
None of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. Romans 14:8
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live. And everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.” John 11:25-26
Have a Blessed Summer,
Summer Pastoral Thoughts:
· Even though it is summer don’t forget to receive Christ’s gift of Word and meal in public worship. Let us together with the help of the Holy Spirit work to stem this national and congregational trend of declining public worship attendance.
· In this Newsletter is a ten-week reading schedule on the Psalms. If your schedule looks different this summer, use this as an opportunity to add in a new personal devotional program.
· Thanks be to God the predicted debt ceiling of $100,000 was not reached in the spring as predicted in the January newsletter. As of now, the congregational operating debt stands at $79,024.44.
· The Open House sponsored by the Board of Outreach on Sunday, June 26th, from 10:00 am-1:00 pm is for both the congregation and community. There will be food, games, and informational tours of both the church and school.
· Please join us on Sunday, June 12th, at 9:00 am for the Service in the Park with our guest speaker Dr. Richard Warnack from Concordia Seminary. Dr. Warnack is a recently retired professor in the practical department at the Seminary. His area of teaching included numerous courses in preaching.
· Vacation Bible School is a wonderful “outreach” even for the congregation. Please consider helping out as Angie Redeker and Kim Deiters help organize this event. This year’s VBS is June 20th-24th.
· Off to School. For the last time (God willing) I will be heading off to school at Concordia Seminary from June 6th-17th. My two classes this summer are “Systematic Theology Today” and “Getting to the Heart of Conflict.” After these two classes are completed, a major applied project is to be completed by December, 2012. This project has to pertain to “something” that can be used in my present congregation. I will be home on the weekends, and I am available during the week via my cell phone should Pastor care be needed (363-0121).
· I am honored and humbled to be the Pastor here at Trinity. Please continue to keep me and my family in your prayers.
The end of the school year is always an exciting time for students, their parents and even for the teachers. All of the end of the year field trips and picnic took place between the rains. The PTL sponsored picnic at the park was a great success. The track team finished up an exciting season where a number of school records were set and a number of competitors went to the state meet. Some other final events during the school year were the 5th-8th grade dance and awards night. The series of activities that lead up to these final days and hours keeps everyone very busy, but it is all with an important purpose. That purpose is to do everything we can to “Send our students into the world as productive members of the Christian community, strong in faith equipped with the knowledge, skills, and desire to live as powerful witnesses of God and His love.”
Congratulations to our eighth grade graduates: Caleb Boehne, Sean Kellermann, Joel Krenz, Sabrina Maschhoff, Reid Michael, Sadie Monken, Dylan Moyer, and Jonathan Siddell. The valedictorian of the 2011 class is Sabrina Maschhoff and the salutatorian is Reid Michael. The class motto is “Our Journey Continues…” drawn from the theme of the year. The class hymn is “The Lamb,” the flower is the white rose, and the class colors are blue and silver. Six of the students from this class will be going to Christ Our Rock Lutheran High school next year. We pray God’s richest blessings on all of the graduates as they continue in the next phase of their education and life.
We thank everyone in our congregation who helps make this school mission a success. That includes parents who find it important for their children to be educated in a Lutheran School and grandparents who encourage their families to attend church on a regular basis. It also consists of people in the congregation that do not have students in the school who assist by contributing to scholarships or coming to the PTL dinner and auction. Things that may seem inconsequential like cutting out box tops or soup labels are a tremendous help to our school. In each of these, we are all working together to serve our Lord in His church.
With the close of this school year, we also look ahead toward the next one. Enrollments are now being accepted for the 2011-2012 school year. There are already more enrolled in kindergarten class than we had last year. Mrs. Kasten will not be with us for band next year so we are working to find a replacement for her. It remains our goal to reach as many children as possible with the Good News of Jesus Christ our Savior. We bring these cares to Him in prayer and His plan will come to pass.
Have a Blessed Summer,
Trinity Lutheran Church Hoffman IL

Farewell Reception – This year Karen Belli, Joyce Michael, Diana Hemminghaus, and Marge Kasten will be leaving our school/church staff after years of service. Following the Sunday service on June 5, there will be a brief presentation and some refreshments in the gymnasium. Join us as we give thanks to God for serving many people through their service to our community.
The Annual Summer Voter’s Meeting will take place on Sunday, June 19th. At least half of this meeting will be spent receiving input on the best use for the Mabel and Elmer Mattmiller estate money. The congregation is being asked to fill out a survey to help rate interest in a number of projects already suggested. In this same survey, new ideas are also requested.
Mark your calendars for Big Jungle Adventure VBS June 20-24. If you would like to help at Vacation Bible School please sign up in the back of church or call Angie Redeker 594-6525 or Wendy Peltes 594-8271 or Kim Deiters 594-4911. On June 26th we will have an open house following the Sunday Service. Join us for a picnic along with a number of games for all ages.
New Organ - At the May 15th Voter’s Meeting the congregation voted to purchase a new organ from Roger’s Organ Company out of St. Louis. The old organ will be sold and (at the earliest) the new organ will be in the sanctuary this fall.
Wudtke Farewell - The leadership of Christ Our Rock Lutheran High School extends an invitation to our congregation for a farewell to Curtis and Jenny Wudtke. Mr. Wudtke has accepted the Executive Director position at Metro East Lutheran High School in Edwardsville. He has served CORLHS since 2003 and Mrs. Wudtke has served the school since 2004. A reception will be held at CORLHS on June 11, 6:00pm. Please RSVP to the CORLHS office, 226-3315, by June 6 in order for them to plan for appropriate accommodations.
Capital Improvement Survey - Pastor and the Board of Elders have been charged by the Elmer and Mabel Mattmiller Trust to make decisions in regards to the use of their generous gift in excess of $200,000 dollars. However, these decisions will not be made without plenty of input from the congregation through surveys, individual conversations, and upcoming Voter’s Meetings. Surveys have been available for several weeks and are located on the table in the narthex. Please prayerfully think of how our congregation can best carry out its mission by filling out the survey and placing it in the designated box, and pray that God will give our congregation wisdom in using this wonderful gift.
Thank you to the congregation for donating $329 to the Wakefield family to help with general expenses following the devastating earthquake in Japan. Their daughter, Hana, came to our school for two weeks last year. At the time of the collection, we were under the impression that the father was still in the states. He has returned to Japan, and due to the difficulty and expense of sending a money order overseas, we are waiting to see if the family will be returning to the states in the next few months and then give them the donation. If they do not return in the next two months, we will donate the money to LCMS World Relief-Japan earthquake or a similar earthquake fund. The family is very grateful for the congregation’s generosity.
Registration – We are now accepting registration for Preschool through eighth grade for the 2011-2012 school year. If you are interested or know of any families that might be served by our school, please contact us. There will be a Church and School Open House on June 26 for those interested in learning more about Trinity. Please call the school office for more information or to answer any questions.
The Board of Parish Education is asking for donations to the Christ Our Rock Lutheran High School Scholarship Fund. We were able to award 10 scholarships last year to students from our congregation who attended CORLHS. This year we anticipate that there will be 11 students applying for scholarship monies. Please prayerfully consider giving a gift for the support of Lutheran education.
The Board of Education would like to make available a means for interested individuals to sponsor tuition for Trinity students that are in financial need. If you no longer have children in school or just have a heart for Lutheran education, you may help a family that may be in need. Trinity Lutheran School is a great mission of our congregation and it is our desire that no student be turned away due to lack of finances. During this school term, 7 students (members and non-members) have received assistance from our scholarship funds and gifts from several individuals that have helped in specific situations. Our scholarship funds are in need of replenishment so that we can continue to provide aid to those families that are indeed in need for the coming school year. If you would like to assist when needs arises or have questions about ways to help, please contact Stephen Burger.
Confirmation Testimonies – On Sunday, May 1, the Rite of Confirmation was held at Trinity. The seven 8th grade confirmands were asked to write testimonies telling what confirmation means to them:
Caleb John Boehne: What does it mean to be confirmed in the faith? What it means to me is that through the confirmation process, I’m much stronger in the Christian faith. I also am promising to stay with Jesus and his Church. As a confirmed member, I now get to take part in the Lord’s Supper with many of you here today. The best part is that I will be in heaven with my Lord and Savior.
Shannon Brook Edler: Being part of the church is a great privilege for me. I get a chance to praise my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ every Sunday. I also get the opportunity to strengthen my faith by the help of many people in the church. Now that I’m being confirmed, I also get the chance to take Jesus Christ’s body and blood with the congregation. These things and many more have made for a great experience in the church and I pray it will remain that way for many years to come.
Sean Christian Kellermann: To me, being confirmed is a privilege in the church. I can now receive the Lord’s precious gift of his body and blood every week. And even though confirmation does allow us to receive
communion now, it also is a reassurance of our baptism. Confirmation is also a way to express my faith through the whole church and gives me the strength to proclaim it elsewhere as well. It took a lot of time and effort for me to be confirmed. But through this time spent studying and learning in class, I can proudly say that I am a confirmed child of God.
Joel Thomas Krenz: To be confirmed means that I am reaffirming my Baptism when I take the Lord’s Supper. I am pledging to stay with the church and my faith until I die. My God given faith helps me realize that if I stay in the faith, I will be with Him someday in paradise. Being in the visible church means that I can confess my faith with other believers. Being confirmed is a big step in my faith life.
Sabrina Renae Maschhoff: Being confirmed is a major step in my faith and everyday life. Not only have I been strengthened in my faith in the confirmation process, but I am also promising to join my church family at the Lord’s table. Becoming a confirmed member will give me the chance to publicly confess my faith with fellow Christians. I now look forward to joining my family and taking part in the body and blood of Christ and receiving the benefits it has to offer.
Reid Benjamin Michael: Being confirmed here today is a big step in my Christian faith. I am now able to partake in the body and blood of Christ with many other Christians. As a confirmed member of the church, it is a great comfort to me to know that I receive forgiveness of sins along with life and salvation through Jesus Christ. This is a big step in my faith; however, it is not the last. I will continue to worship and I will continue to come to the Lord’s table.
Sadie Brianne Monken: Now that I am getting confirmed, I know that I have a good foundation as I journey through life. Being confirmed means to me that I don’t have to be worried about being forgiven because I know that God assures forgiveness to me when I take the body and blood of my Lord. I am happy to be a member of this church because I know that we are not afraid of publicly confessing our faith. I also know that no matter what, my family, friends and especially Jesus will always be there for me.

On Monday, June 6th, volunteers are needed around 8:00 am to help unload, sort, and organize the food for the Wednesday, June 8th, food giveaway. Jim and Deb Ainslie are volunteers from our congregation who will be there on that day and have done this before.

Please place these items in the confirmation room throughout the months of June and July, and we will make sure they are distributed to the food bank. Cash donations will also be accepted. "I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor will I satisfy with food." Psalm 132:15. Board of Outreach
