If you have Christmas gifts that need gift wrapping, the students at Trinity Lutheran in Owatonna will be on hand to help on Sunday, December 18. From 3-6PM youth will be in the church's main entrance offering assistance in gift wrapping your presents. A donation will benefit the youth for their summer ministry trips. The church is at 609 Lincoln Ave., Owatonna.

Trinity also reminds residents of their Longest Night-A Service of Hope, which will be offered Wednesday, December 21, at 6PM. The loss of a loved one, illness, depression, loneliness, unemployment are all situations that can magnify during the holiday season. This is a service of hope to those so afflicted or those who find it difficult to celebrate the season.

Trinity is offering "Comfort and Joy," a Christmas Cantata, along with singers and orchestra. Worship times this weekend are at 5PM Saturday, December 17, and on Sunday at 8:15AM, 9:30AM and 10:45AM.
