After 125 years of serving southern Minnesota and northern Iowa, Trinity of Elmore is closing its doors.  The final service is slated for November 4, 2018 at 2:00 PM.  Members of the church do not wish to leave sacred items behind in the building and are offering them for free to churches who can use them,  Several items have already been promised but here is a list of what remains:

Processional cross, two hymn boards, large cross over altar, missal stand, eternal light (electric), baptismal bowl, cover and flagon (baptismal font cannot be moved), assorted banners, set of LSB altar books, various religious pictures, American and Christian chancel flags, the bell outside, the cross on top of the church, organ books, fixed lectern and pulpit, two wrought iron railings up to chancel with cross in them, offering plates.

Generally, these items will be available beginning November 5.
