Community Connector – Trinity Lutheran Church

,
Trinity Lutheran Church has been in North Omaha nearly 100 years. Began as a Swedish Lutheran congregation, we have evolved over that time into a multi-cultural congregation base. We have two faith communities in our facility which are, over the course of the next decade or so, becoming one Church. Trinity Lutheran - historically white but now diversifying along with the neighborhood, and Nile Lutheran Chapel - a Nuer speaking congregation of immigrants from South Sudan. Over the last three years, under new pastoral leadership, Trinity has been doing some self study and is - over the next five years, planning more aggressive work in the community as a servant Mission Outpost of the ELCA.

To coordinate and prosper our various community mission outreach opportunities. That means: 1) Keep congregation informed of the various ways in which members can serve our community through the congregation. (see other form) 2) encourage and schedule volunteers for these various opportunities. This is a very important part of the task 3) keep contact with the various partners we have in these mission opportunities - the schools and the ministries - so that we have clear expectations and outcomes are positive. 4) Work with our South Sudanese congregation in their aculturalization process. Help them (especially their students) make their way here in the States. 5) There are other tasks associated with this position that have to do with the day-to-day workings of the congregation. Errands to run, periodic publications to make occur. These more mundane tasks will be accomplished in concert with and at the direction of the parish secretary.
