Dorcas Circle

The Dorcas Circle is comprised of a group of women who meet each month for fellowship, lunch, a devotion/Bible Study led by pastor, and to work on meaningful service projects. Our main project is making quilts for Lutheran World Relief. Through our freewill offerings we are able to contribute to various missions and organizations such as Bethesda Lutheran Home, Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, Orphan Grain Train, SST Youth, etc.

Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month, September through June at 11:30am. We welcome you to join us!

Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML)

Many women in the Trinity Guild are also very active in the LWML (Lutheran Women’s Missionary League). This national ministry has recently undergone a tagline change and rebranding and is now “Lutheran Women in Mission.”
