July 13th Service
This video was the Reformation Service from the Greater Milwaukee Federation of Lutheran Churches Missouri Synod on Oct 28, 2007 at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This particular service celebrates the 400th birthday of hymn writers Paul Gerhardt and Johann Rist. The organist is Jim Freese, choir director Ralph Kohrs, liturgist Rev. Hunter Hoffman of Trinity, Lector Rev Donald Hougard of Benediction Lutheran, and the preacher is Rev. Mark Wangerin of Mount Olive Lutheran. Please excuse the quality of the video. It was shot with a basic home video camera several years ago. The service remembers hymns that beautifully express the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a beautiful instrument, the Schuelke organ which was destroyed by fire on May 15, 2018. To God be the glory!

History of the Holy Trinity Parish
Holy Trinity parish was founded on August 28, 1897, when the first Divine Liturgy was served in Butte. Thirty-five families, all from the southern regions of the former Yugoslavia, gathered around a visiting Orthodox missionary priest, committed to establishing a parish and building a permanent Orthodox Church. In 1905, their dream, through prayers and self-sacrificial love, turned into a reality. This first church edifice stood until 1964 when it was demolished due to the structural damage caused by underground mining. The construction of the new church was finished in 1965 with the consecration date on July 25. Today, this vibrant Orthodox community has members with various ethnic backgrounds, Serbian, Greek, Irish, Scottish, German, etc. Holy Trinity parish is pan-Orthodox and welcomes everyone seeking the fullness of the Christian faith revealed by Jesus Christ, confirmed by Holy Scripture, preached by the Apostles, and lived victoriously throughout the centuries by countless holy women, men, and children.
God is With Us
The church is oriented toward the East, according to the Apostolic canon: “The house of the Lord should be oriented towards the sunrise, with annexes on both sides corresponding to the nave” (1, II, 57). The church is entered from the West and the faithful, standing in prayer, face the East — the altar, the symbol of heaven, spiritual light and Christ — the Sun of Righteousness — who shall appear as lightning form the East at His second coming (Matthew 24:27).
The Interior of an Orthodox Church…
It’s designed to speak to the worshipper, to establish the mood for worship, to preach the Gospel through architecture and icons, to elevate one’s mind and heart to the God one comes to praise and worship. The church edifice has three main parts: the narthex, nave and sanctuary or altar.
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is one of the oldest cathedral churches in the United States; it is older than the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., or the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. The word, “cathedral,” comes from the word, “cathedra’” meaning the chair or seat of authority of the Episcopal bishop of Arkansas. It was completed in three stages: the Bell Tower, Baptistery, and Nave in 1884; the North and South Transepts between 1888 and 1889; and the Chancel with the Great Choir and Sanctuary between 1890 and 1892.

With numerous foreclosures in his parish, Father Eddie Samaniego finally said, “enough is enough” to the banks and their loan modification policies. His church, Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in San Jose, is one of the first to divest its funds from Bank of America to a local credit union. The movement is gaining momentum as more and more churches and individuals divest their money from big banks.

1. Built on the Rock the Church doth stand,
Even when steeples are falling;
Crumbled have spires in every land,
Bells still are chiming and calling,
Calling the young and old to rest,
But above all the soul distrest,
Longing for rest everlasting.
2. Surely in temples made with hands,
God, the Most High, is not dwelling;
High above earth His temple stands,
All earthly temples excelling.
Yet He whom heavens cannot contain
Chose to abide on earth with men,
Built in our bodies His temple.
3. We are God’s house of living stones,
Builded for His habitation;
He through baptismal grace us owns
Heirs of His wondrous salvation.
Were we but two His name to tell,
Yet He would deign with us to dwell,
With all His grace and His favor.
4. Now we may gather with our King
E’en in the lowliest dwelling;
Praises to Him we there may bring,
His wondrous mercy forthtelling.
Jesus His grace to us accords;
Spirit and life are all His words;
His truth doth hallow the temple.
5. Still we our earthly temples rear
That we may herald His praises;
They are the homes where He draws near
And little children embraces.
Beautiful things in them are said;
God there with us His covenant made,
Making us heirs of His kingdom.
6. Here stands the font before our eyes
Telling how God did receive us;
The altar recalls Christ’s sacrifice
And what His table doth give us;
Here sounds the Word that doth proclaim
Christ yesterday, today, the same,
Yea, and for aye our Redeemer.
7. Grant then, O God, where’er men roam,
That, when the church-bells are ringing,
Many in saving faith may come
Where Christ His message is bringing:
“I know Mine own, Mine own know Me;
Ye, not the world, My face shall see.
My peace I leave with you.” Amen.
