Organ Concert / Hymn Festival

SAVE THE DATE On September 21, 1980, three young organists were among the 371 people who crowded into Trinity Lutheran Church to hear an Organ Concert / Hymn Festival presented by the legendary Lutheran organist Dr. Paul Manz. Over the years we have used his music in our own churches, and now, in this year of our Lord 2019, we have planned another Organ Concert / Hymn Festival to honor this man who so inspired us, to share his music, and to celebrate his legacy. Please join us at Trinity Lutheran Church (210 Washington Avenue, 38103) on October 20, 2019, 4:00 p.m. for “E’en So, Lord Jesus – A Celebration of the Music of Paul Manz,” featuring organists Martha Israel, Ty Legge, and Jane Scharding Smedley, as well as a choir led by Dr. Bruce Smedley. Free Parking is available in the lot across the street, and a reception will follow. For more information, call Trinity’s office at 901 525-1056.

Well, our water troubles are nothing like Oklahoma and Texas, but they are frustrating nevertheless. Trinity has had a long history of water woes. After spending thousands of dollars on water proofing several years ago, some of the men of Trinity underwent the tedious task of removing the old damaged plaster, replacing it with several coats of new, and then repainting it. “We even shook hands and congratulated each other when we finished,” said Mike Grant, one of the volunteers. “We had every expectation that the job we did would last a life time since the source of the water leaks had been located and fixed.” The back slaps and high fives were a bit premature it would seem. Soon after completing the project, the plaster in the narthex (the area at the top of the stairs where you receive your church bulletin) began to peel. Soon after that, efflorescence began appearing at floor level at the top of the stairs. Now it is reappearing again with a vengeance in the transept. Trinity’s Head Trustee, Jim Hofer has met with Mike Watermeier, a consultant that advises on water remediation.
