We give thanksgiving for each of them and we thank our Heavenly Father for making His will clear to the teachers.

The Board has offered a math teaching position to Miss Faith Hoksbergen for the 2023-2024 school year. We pray that the Lord makes His will clear to Miss Hoksbergen.

The road to the west parking lot is back in shape and usable. We’ll resume our regular parking practices.

Thursday will be a special day as we are expecting to be visited by the bands of Heritage CHS (Dyer, IN), Covenant CHS (Grand Rapids, MI), and Faith Christian School (Randolph, WI). We’ll have a noon meal of pizza together, there will be a few mixer-type activities, and then a rehearsal in the afternoon. After the evening concert there will be an open gym for the high school students. Each Trinity student needs to bring $5 to school.
