so we might get to know you better.
Growing up on a farm in Clinton, Minnesota, Lisa Markert was part of a Lutheran Church where there were eight in her confirmation class and the only trip her youth group took was tubing down the Apple River.
Fast forward a few years and Lisa moved to Moorhead to attend college at MSUM where she met her husband Dan. They moved out of the area for jobs and came back to Moorhead in 1998. Dan’s grandparents, Donald and Nettie Markert were Trinity members so Dan grew up attending holiday worship at Trinity with his extended family. Lisa says the decision to join Trinity was easy and they have never looked back.
Her home church might have been small but it was huge in nourishing her faith and showing her what a supportive congregation feels like. Lisa’s connection to Trinity is similar, strong, and emotional. She says “I cry fairly easily so I have shed many tears at Trinity.” Worship is so meaningful here that tears come easily such as during music in the CLC or during Deacon Kathy’s sermons. At her daughter, Megan’s baptism at Trinity Lisa says “I couldn’t stop crying, happy tears of course!”
Through life’s ups and downs, Lisa has found connection and support at Trinity. While serving on the Children’s Ministry Team Lisa went through breast cancer treatment. Sandra Anderson gave her a Prayer Shawl made by a Trinity Light Group, physically and emotionally wrapping her in prayer and support. Today Lisa is cancer free and has been dismissed by her oncologist. She is the picture of health and vitality and is an avid marathon runner. Lisa has completed 20 full marathons and will be running her 46th half-marathon in Fargo in May.
Lisa is very excited about the new and improved Trinity underway through the Shining Together Capital Campaign. With all the division in the world, she wants even more people to experience our welcoming and accepting congregation and our meaningful worship experiences led by Trinity’s relatable pastoral staff and gifted musicians. Lisa is happy to have found her church home in such a vibrant congregation with many opportunities for people to connect. She thinks the future of our congregation is going to be even more impressive.
Shining Together - Capital Campaign
Phase 1A of our facility renovations is now complete! As we embark on our new Shining Together Capital Campaign to fund Phase 1B, we are filled with gratitude for your extraordinary generosity that will refocus, renew, and refresh our mission and our church home. We are also grateful to each of you for being a light within the Moorhead community and surrounding area, and we are excited to see how our 140-year-old faith community will position itself to continue Shining Together for generations to come.
Thank you for your faithful generosity to Trinity in the past and for your continued support as we practice Shining Together for all those drawn here by the Holy Spirit. Together, we will finish this gift of light we started.
Light Groups are gatherings of people connected to Trinity whose calls to “Be A Light” intersect. Because of a shared interest, passion, or cause, these groups are formed to help build connections between our faith and our life as we grow in relationship with one another.
