Growing Seeds of Love
If you want a history lesson on Trinity Lutheran Church, just talk to Char Skaff.
Back in 1955 Char’s parents, Sam and Florene Skaff, moved to Moorhead with their family of 4 young children. One night, they received a late-night visit from Pastor Oscar Anderson who promptly registered them for the Fall session of Sunday School at Trinity, and the rest is history.
Char grew up at Trinity playing the organ for weddings, funerals and as a sub for Sunday Worship services. In Jr. High she began volunteering at the Information Desk and went on to work there for 34 years in addition to being a Paramedic and Realtor. She remembers that confirmation was challenging with lots of memorization but knowing Bible verses and Luther’s Small Catechism has been a bedrock in her faith formation.
When asked about challenges to her faith she said that Covid and the isolation that came with it have been hard. Being separated from her beloved church family left a void. Char is so grateful for the online services that allowed her to worship every Sunday. Health issues have also been hard, but Char says her faith in God, family, friends and the pastors at Trinity has been wonderful. Being in a community of faith with in-person worship is a balm to her soul. She wants to encourage everyone to rediscover the joy of worshiping in Trinity’s beautiful sanctuary or CLC, singing hymns of faith and being filled with meaningful spiritual music.
Times may change, but for Char the values of strong faith, good music, and generosity remain. What does generosity look like to Char? Giving our time, talents and treasure to God with a generous and cheerful heart.
“Blessed Assurance, Jesus is mine.
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Praising my Savior all the day long.”
