NYG Interest Form - The Time is Drawing Near!

Click the word here - YOUTH or CHAPERONE - to register your interest. Our wide-eyed goal is to register 50 youth (we are currently around 25) plus chaperones!
Youth Hanging Plant Sale
Our youth are selling 10" hanging baskets from Natural Beauty for $18 each.

Please keep filling those Mite boxes. Your mites, along with many others, do amazing things in the mission field both in our district and world wide. We continue to collect your mites at church - please put your Mites in a plastic bag or envelope, keeping your Mite Box to reuse, then contact the church office to schedule a drop off day and time. We are very thankful for your involvement in our LWML missions.

Green Bay Trinity Fundraiser - The UN-Auction
COVID19 will not defeat us! With the continued inability to gather in large groups in 2021 due to the COVID 19 virus, Green Bay Trinity's annual auction fundraiser has become an 'UnAuction'. For the UnAuction, we are asking for cash donations. Matching funds are being provided by several Trinity supporters and our goal is to raise $60,000 to meet our budgeted fundraising needs. An appreciation event will be held on April 17 at the Riverside Ballroom for those that donate to the UnAuction by April 13. A boxed 4 piece chicken meal may be purchased separately for $15; this can be eaten at the Riverside Ballroom during the event or picked up anytime from 4-6pm to be eaten at home. More information is available in the April issue of The Voice or at greenbaytrinity.org (scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the UnAuction logo) . You can also contact Michelle in the church office if you have questions or to make a donation.
Staples and Fasteners (things that never change)
We continue to offer pastoral visits with prayer and/or The Lord’s Supper at the door. Call the church office at (920) 468-4065 to schedule.
- Please arrive no more than 20 minutes early
- Entry and exit is at the main doors under the overhang. Make sure to check in at the Welcome Center upon arrival.
- Pre-registration online by Wednesday for Thursday or by noon on Friday for Sunday is recommended. OR call the church office by the deadline if you can't sign up online.
- Properly worn masks are required (except for those age 2 and under) at all times.
To purchase SCRIP, place your order by calling the office then schedule a pick up day and time. Buying SCRIP is a great way to support Our Saviour because a portion of all sales is given as a donation to the church. If you buy groceries, gas, eat out, shop online, vacation, etc., you may be missing out on this simple way to give to Our Saviour. Please see SCRIP purchasing availability exceptions below.
