Ways to Serve


Men and women who have the gift of being able to serve the Lord during the worship services are encouraged to consider being part of our usher group. Basically, ushers make sure everything runs well during the service by doing such things as finding seats, passing out worship folders, collecting the offering and Ritual of Friendship cards, etc. Usually ushers serve at the service of their choice. If you would like to be a part of this invaluable service, please contact Brad Juergens.


Acolyting is an opportunity for our young members to be a part of Worship Services.

Concordia meets the second Thursday of the month at 1:30 p.m. for devotions and fellowship. They are planning various projects to do around the church and help with shut-ins. Luncheons are served by Concordia for families of members of the congregation who are buried from the church. Visitors are always welcome.

Bible Breakfast Helpers

To continue offering Bible Breakfast each Sunday, volunteers are needed to pick up donuts and to help in the kitchen to serve donuts, coffee and juice. A sign up sheet is passed around during Adult Bible Study. You may sign up for one week or more!


Volunteers are needed each Sunday to provide transportation to members wanting to come to church but are not able to drive themselves. If you can help with this please contact Debbie Fornoff or the church office at (309) 346-1391.

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree project began in 1976 at Trinity Lutheran Church. At that time we distributed hats, mittens and scarves to needy children at Jefferson School. We have since grown to serve Pekin District 108 preschool thru 6th grade schools, Schramm Educatioanl Center, and Good Sheperd Lutheran School. Children in need are given new winter coats, hats, and gloves/mittens. The Giving Tree is a project of the Board of Christian Service and the Board of Evangelism. With the help of this group and the donations of others, an average of 215 children are helped each year. Volunteers are needed to purchase, sort, package, and deliver coats. Contact Melissa Deverman if you'd like to help in any way.
