On May 16 Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church will celebrate its 40th anniversary of service.

“Please come out and help us celebrate 40 years of service to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and to our community,” said Ida Tofsrud, Lutheran Church. “We have endeavoured to provide spiritual, physical and emotional support to our church family and community.”

Scheduled so far is a special anniversary service with communion at 10 a.m. followed by presiding minister, Bishop Ron Mayan, assisting minister, Pastor David Schumacher and keynote speaker Pastor Allen Jorgenson.

At 12:30 p.m. a full course dinner is offered —tickets must be purchased for dinner.

At 2 p.m. a celebration will be held either at the Kinsmen Community Centre or the church. This time will be focused on reflection, worship and greetings from dignitaries including MLA Ray Prins, MP Blaine Calkins, Mayor Larry Henkelman and Reeve Gordon Svenningsen.

A Power Point presentation will also be given. Refreshments and cake will be offered at the end of the celebration.

The Lutheran church had its first council meeting in 1970 and its first service at the United Church in May 31, 1970 featuring Pastor Dr. J Zimmerman. On Sept.1, 1970 St. Mary’s Anglican Church became the first site for the Trinity congregation. By June 1, 1975 the church had its own building to call home.

The church is located at 5501 54 Avenue. For dinner tickets call (403) 783-4141.
