Serve in Our World
Trinity supports the missionary work of The Rev. Philip & Lou Marie Knutson and The Rev. Elisabeth Johnson with prayer and financial sponsorship. Support for our missionaries in Africa for one week is $20. We invite and encourage you to sign up on either calendar in the back of the sanctuary for a week of support. A gift supporting our missionaries is a great gift for a birthday or anniversary or a meaningful way to remember or honor a loved one.
THE REV. PHILIP & LOU MARIE KNUTSON serve throughout the countries of Southern Africa as resources for Christian education projects. Your gift will support evangelism, leadership development, justice and relief in Southern Africa.
