Pastor's Monthly Message
Welcome to the web presence of Trinity!
Whether you´ve stumbled across us by accident or purposefully sought us out;
whether this is your first visit or you´ve been here before;
whether you´re a member of Trinity or never even heard of us before;
whether you are a Lutheran or claim no denominational title;
for whatever reason you are here -- WELCOME!
The heart of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Nokomis, Illinois,
is not our beautiful church building
or our peaceful, small central-Illinois town
or even our friendly, easy-going members -
our heart and center is Jesus, God´s one and only Son,
who lived, suffered, died, and rose from the dead
so that you and I, indeed all people,
might have the gift of new life now and life everlasting in heaven!
This truth is the heart and center of all that Trinity is and does!
We learn of this truth from the only true God Himself,
as He reveals it to us in His holy Word, the Bible!
From Genesis to Revelation the message is the same --
God´s Son, Jesus, has come, and He is the Way, the Truth and the Life!
No one comes to the Father except through Him!
This message is powerful and true because God the Holy Spirit resides in and through this wonderful Word and the ´Word made visible´ --
His Sacraments (Baptism and the Lord´s Supper)!
He has remade us -- at this time, in this place -- to be His people!
Fed, nourished and sustained by His presence in His Word and Sacrament,
life is a joy, even in the middle of all of it´s ups and downs!
We are not perfect, just forgiven in Jesus!
We don´t have all the answers, but we do have The Answer, Jesus!
We ´don´t have it together´ all the time, but, by God´s undeserved love,
we are committed to learn and grow together in Jesus!
We also invite you to come and see,
to experience firsthand, God´s love at Trinity!
The peace of the Lord be with you!
Pastor Bert H. Eickhoff
