The Session of Trinity is the decision making team here at the church. As one body, we oversee all aspects of life and worship here at Trinity. The Minister is part of Session, and serves as a teaching elder, although his membership doesn't sit with Trinity, but with the Presbytery.
Each Sunday, we have a different Elder on Duty - so if you have any needs that arise during your time with us, or you just have a question, there will always be someone ready to help you out.
If you would like to get in touch with the Session, you can email our Clerk (Fran Neuls) at [email protected]
Fran Neuls (Clerk of Session)
Grenfell, Saskatchewan is the hometown for my husband, Glen and myself. We live on an acreage on the edge of the Pipestone Valley 10 miles south of Grenfell. We have two adult children, Chelsey (Jamie) and Tyler (Amanda) and two wonderful grandchildren, Jaxon and Kashyn. Our family joined Trinity Presbyterian Church in December 1994.
When our children were young, I assisted with the Sunday school program and the kid’s choir. I also served as a trustee for many years, and I have been a member of Trinity’s Search Committees to recruit new ministers in 2004, 2010 and 2016. Recently I have become more involved in Trinity’s leadership. In January 2015, I volunteered to act as the treasurer of the Trinity Presbyterian Women’s association. Then, in October 2015, I was ordained as an elder of Trinity and assumed the Clerk of Session responsibilities in January 2016.
I would be happy to hear from you! Please contact me through email: [email protected].
Grenfell is the birthplace for my husband Ken, our two Children Kimberley and Curtis, and me. We, as a family, joined Trinity Presbyterian Church in December, 1994.
In my first years as a member of this congregation, I co-supervised the Christian Education program, and assisted the Junior Choir. In addition, I volunteered as secretary for the steering committee to plan for the construction of our new church building (completed in 1994!)
In February 1999, I became an ordained elder of Trinity Presbyterian Church. In addition, I have also served on the Search Committee for a minister in 1995, 2004, 2010 and most recently, 2016. I also acted in the capacity of Clerk of Session from 2008-2015.
Trinity recently celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary as a congregation. I look forward to serving the congregation and community in the years to come.
I became an elder on October 29, 2014.
Hi. My name is Sharon Lowenberg. I am the wife of Elwood, a mother to four children (Karen, Candace, Kimberley and Cory) and a Grandmother of 8. I have lived in the Grenfell area for 44 years, farming with my husband. Our son, Cory and his wife, Karen have taken over the farming operation, but we still take an interest in the day to day activities. I enjoy sewing quilts and hand quilting. We go to Arizona for the winter months to get out of the cold, but we love coming back in Spring to our local church. I am enjoying being part of the Presbyterian church and now as a Session Elder I'll be ready to serve as needed. If anyone needs to talk or a friendly visit, please feel free to call.
Hello, my name is Tracy, I became an elder in May of 2016. I am a born and raised Grenfell girl who married a Moose Jaw boy named Todd. We have some awesome fur babies in our lives and they make us super happy. My husband and I own a Plumbing and Heating business in Grenfell, and we are very pleased to be able to live and work in a great town! I have been a part of the church since the beginning. It is a family church to me; my grandmother and my mother were a part of the planning efforts to create our beautiful church. My grandmother was a part of the choir and now I from time to time take part in the choir as well. I was only a young girl when we became Trinity Presbyterian Church, so I can honestly say I have grownup with the church. My husband is a member of the Board of managers along with my dad. I am not only an Elder, I am part of the Ladies group and the Leading with care committee. I have always loved our church because it is like I have been blessed with not only my family but a much bigger family, my church family. Growing up we all hit milestones, and in this church, its like you get to celebrate them even more with more family. Confirmation, graduation, marriage, and going out and starting your own business, big life events are not only celebrated with your immediate family but the extension of your church family. I love our church for how welcoming and caring it is, and we always have the coffee on and the toast toasting on Sunday mornings after worship service.
Good things happen with the love of God and your family embracing you and encouraging you. Faith, love and hope are gifts from God, when you open up and accept these gifts, a sense of peace will come about.
