Trinity Lutheran Church is a family of followers of Jesus Christ, committed to sharing the Gospel, and graciously serving all of God’s people with love and hospitality.

A Word From the Trinity Lutheran Church Office…

We have resumed on-site worship in the church sanctuary on Sundays for an 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. worship service.

Online worship is also available on our website, Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and audio podcasts via streaming.

The Covid-19 Vaccinations are a tribute to the human spirit. Following the CDC Guidelines and the best possible scientific study we are adjusting our policies on a regular basis.

We are encouraging all worshipers, vaccinated or not, to wear masks during worship for the next couple of weeks. When we move into the gym or outdoor spaces where there is less congestion and more open air, masks may be removed.

Please respect the personal space of others as not all worshipers are vaccinated or comfortable with close personal contact.

 
Our nursery will be open during both services for infants and toddlers.
 

Our church office is open between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Please call the office for appointments at (360) 331-5191.

Making a Positive Difference in the World

Today's Word from Trinity member Ron Roesler... I am just one of seven billion people. What can one person do to make a positive difference in the world? What could one in billions possibly do to affect the whole world? I have my own problems and opinions. As good as I...

An Evening Hymn, This Morning

Today's Word from Karl Olsen... One of my favorite hymns, in our hymnal or any other, is an old favorite sung to the hymn tune TALLIS CANON, All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night. Part of my affection for this hymn is its straight forward, wonderful,...

Uncommonly Common

Uncommonly Common

Today’s Word from Pastor Tom... “I’m an idiot!” Not an uncommon piece of internal conversation I have that is never ever to be available for an outside audience. But it is, none the less, a fairly regular piece of ticker tape that floats across my frontal lobe. I mean...

More Kindness

Today’s Word from Deacon Amy... “Nothing in nature lives for itself. The rivers do not drink their own water; the trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Living for others is a rule...

Walking in Limbo

Walking in Limbo

Today's Word from Mark Winslow This pandemic time reminds me a great deal of a previous time in my life about forty years ago. Walking in limbo. I was 28 years old and experiencing the happiest day of my life, at that time. I was getting married to the woman I loved,...

’Til Each Tear Becomes a Rose

Extravagant Hospitality

Today’s Word from Pastor Jim... “Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so some have entertained angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:1-2 It was one of those quick church conversations while moving about from office...

New to South Whidbey? Looking for a church home?

church raising hands

We are a group of imperfect people who are grateful to be held in God’s grace… a family of believers seeking to grow in God’s love and to share that love through living intentional Christian lives.

We are a congregation of more than 1,200 people today. Trinity is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, but nearly half of our members come from other faith traditions. We recognize that it is God’s house and God’s table, and God who gives the invitation, and as such, we welcome all people to our church.

We pray together, sing together, talk together, laugh together, and do volunteer projects together. Having been richly blessed by the grace of Christ, we seek to be a blessing to others.10986517_821716207882078_2799011456801132783_n

Many parents look to Trinity for a solid Christian education program for their children. We have dedicated volunteer teachers and modern facilities and are committed to help children and teens develop a faith relationship with God that will sustain them through life.

When this pandemic passes, we will resume having Bible Studies, service groups and Men’s Breakfast. For now we ask that you keep up with our services and missives online and on Facebook.

Welcoming-new-members-1024x614Want to know more about the Christian faith? Have questions about Trinity Lutheran Church? Please speak to one of our pastors, or call the church office.  We would love to visit with you. You are also welcome in our new members classes, held three times a year.

There are opportunities for you to learn, grow and serve at Trinity Lutheran Church. What is your passion? Where are your gifts and interests? Or, perhaps you are weary and broken and just need to be ministered to and find rest in Christ. Come. You are welcome at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Our communion table is open to all people. Our hospitality is meant for all as well.

If we can answer any questions, help you on your journey of faith, minister to you in crisis, and celebrate with you life’s special occasions, please call upon our pastoral staff. We are here to serve.

For the convenience of people viewing the website on their phone, we have been asked to make our Donation button easier to find.
