115th ANNIVERSARY - Diana Otto and Jayne Swanson are looking for volunteers for a planning committee.

Our suggested quarterly mission contributions for fiscal year 2008-2009 are Grace Matters (ELCA's radio outreach), Slovak Zion Synod support for missionaries in Slovakia, ELCA worldwide missionary support, and scholarships.

************************************************************************ANNUAL VOTERS' MEETING/(KONVENT') - APRIL 13, 2008
**************************************************************************
ELECTIONS - The following were elected: Steve Fusek, congregation president; Dave Sieger, treasurer; Duane Smart, financial secretary; Council members: Annie Kim, Richard Kvorka, Joe Ruiz, Eleanor Toman.
BUDGET - The budget for the next fiscal year was passed 64-1, with projected income of $285,490 and expenses of $352,009, for a projected deficit of $66,519.
ENVELOPE OFFERINGS - The budget shows an expectation of increases of $60 per giving unit, or approximately a 10% increase. But, covering the entire expected deficit of approximately $67,000 through weekly giving would require each giving unit (envelope) to increase contributions almost $250 for the year, or $5 a week.
***If every Trinity member increased weekly donations by $5.00, next year's budget deficit would be covered!***
