In Remembrance – Pastor Jon Bielfeldt (President of LCMC Texas District)

Pastor Jon Bielfeldt Has Passed Away
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, 

We received word from Pastor Jon’s family that he succumbed to his pneumonia this afternoon. Jon and Kathy have been bulwarks of the LCMC Texas District for years, and St. John’s Thrall has lost the shepherd of their flock. Please pray for the Bielfeldt family, St. John’s, and remember Jon and Kathy fondly.

Arrangements have not yet been completed for Jon. We will alert you when we have more information.

“For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing.” – 2 Corinthians 5:1-2

Trinity Volunteers at Watermelon Festival

Hempstead volunteered to manage the Watermelon Eating and Seed Spitting Contest on July 24th.  It was a hilarious good time with a lot of bulging cheeks.  We had to have a “spitoff” on the seed spitting contest because they were both hitting the wall and move to another direction.  Congratulations to the winners and all who participated.
