January 3rd, 2021

       This is an update on worship and building activity at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in the midst of many changes in the community and our lives due to COVID-19 / coronavirus.  

1. Council adopted the following:
    Holy Trinity Lutheran Church returned to weekly virtual Holy Communion via our Zoom Worships.

    If you wish to receive Holy Communion during our weekly zoom worship service, have the following
    ready before the service begins.
      - a small piece of bread or cracker.

      - a small glass of wine or grape juice.

2. Council adopted the following:
    As long as Lucas Co. is deemed a Level 3, or higher risk for COVID-19, HTLC will:
      - Follow the 2nd greatest commandment "You shall love your neighbor as yourself", in considering            when the safest time is to begin to reopen the building to other services, meeting or gatherings;

      - Continue on-line services indefinitely;

      - Limit use of the church to staff and pantry volunteers only,
        practicing recommendations of 6 feet distancing & wearing of masks;

      - Enforce following safe distancing & wearing of masks, when 6 ft. distancing is not possible; 

      - Re-evaluate the benefits & risks to all congregants, when risk level is 2 or less.

Your partner in ministry,

Pastor Merlin Jacobs - Holy Trinity Lutheran Church

FELLOWSHIP ACTIVITIES - May 20th, 2021 - 11:00 AM

Every month, a recipe appears in the Lamplighter. Gather your ingredients and then get cooking! We’ll meet on Zoom and do a recipe chat. Was the recipe fun to make? Delicious to eat? Did you put your own spin on it? This is just one more way we can stay in touch with each other and have a little coffee and conversation. This month we will be making "Mom's Banana Bread" and then meet on May 20th at 11 a.m. on zoom. See you there!

What brings you joy? For me it is nature, friends and family, babies and little kids, the sound of laughter, a good joke, good book, and movie. The ARTS bring me joy. I appreciate art around me and within me. God the creator is an artist.  Creation is art! These are all gifts from God. God’s gifts and presence bring me joy!

This month in April, our J.A.M. students will be focusing on the Fruit of the Spirit, Joy. One way we will be doing this is by responding to God’s creation through the medium of art.

We will be passing on the joy of their creations for your enJOYment as their works of art will be displayed during our April Sunday services.


The Christian Ed team




Beginning Tuesday, April 20th, Pastor Jacobs will lead a 5 week Bible study on Generosity. We often think there is not enough but God has created a world that provides an abundance. How can we live in our world knowing there is always more than enough? The class will begin at 6:30 PM on zoom. 

Generosity is everywhere. Last year in the United States 93,000,000 acres of corn were planted. There are 100,000,000 walleye in lake Erie. Generosity is all around us. Let's open the Holy Scriptures and learn about generosity. Its a spiritual gift. How might we live generously?
