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…
Our first priority is the health and public safety of our people. We appreciate your patience and support as we reopen slowly and responsibly.
Our church office is now open between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
Please note the following instructions:
- If you want an appointment to see any staff member please call or email that staff member directly prior to your arrival. The church office number is (360) 331-5191. Staff emails are listed below.
Pastor Jim Lindus – email@example.com
Robin Edgeman – firstname.lastname@example.org
Karl Olsen – email@example.com
Deacon Amy O’Collins – firstname.lastname@example.org
Lana Johnson – email@example.com
- All visitors to the TLC Campus must wear face-masks covering nose and mouth at all times. Limited masks will be available at the office door.
- Social distancing of six feet is to be practiced.
- The Sanctuary is currently closed to non-staff members.
- Small group TLC-approved meetings may take place between 9 a.m. and 1:00 pm. (except on Wednesdays). Meeting space will be assigned by the office.
- At this time, our campus will not be open for any public meetings.
- Bathroom use is limited to two people at any one time.
- Small group leaders will be responsible for turning in a list of attendees to the office before leaving the campus and for wiping down/disinfecting the meeting space.
We will not be returning to onsite in-person worship until Phase 4 of the re-opening plan put forth by the State of Washington. The dangers of doing so are unknown at this time and compliance with the phase 2 worship regulations would be nearly impossible for a congregation our size. Sometimes love does look like an empty church–at least until we can be sure to safeguard the health of our most vulnerable populations.
May God grant you peace, patience and perseverance,
Pastor Jim and Your TLC Staff

“Turning Wine Into Water” by Pastor Jim Lindus
Today’s Word from Minister of Music Karl Olsen... Sometimes, like now, it’s helpful to be reminded that we have a shelter in God when times are challenging and we’re weary. Here’s a possibility! Jesus Is a Rock in a Weary Land (ELW 333) is listed as an African...
Today’s Word from Minister of Music Karl Olsen I have protestant roots. Protest. Hmm…maybe you do, too. But first, here’s a bit from the recent Holden Village email newsletter… "In the Christian calendar, January 6 is Epiphany, which means “manifestation” - a thing...
Today’s Word from Pastor Jim... We watched the movie Selma last week. It reminded us of the long struggle for civil rights, voting rights, and basic human rights. The blood-stained dream of the Declaration of Independence turned out to be more an illusion than a...
Today’s Word from Deacon Amy... “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5 Consider this a continuation of my last note to you – I referenced the above verse at the end of my message, and I’ve had this verse swirling around in...
Today’s Word from Pastor Tom Kidd... Picture 15 middle schoolers sitting around the confirmation table with yours truly trying to be inspirational, hoping to quicken their love of Luther and the Small Catechism. But it’s January, it was dark at 4:15 p.m., they’ve been...
Today’s Word from Pastor Jim... “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 Is it time to question Christianity? The answer must be a resounding YES! Why? Because it is always time to question the human institution that bears the name of Jesus....
Today’s Word from Trinity Keyboardist Sheila Weidendorf... On Winter Solstice 2020, Saturn and Jupiter reached a significant conjunction – the closest they’d been in over 800 years! – to form a recurrence, it is believed, of the Star of Bethlehem. A considerable...
Today’s Word from Mark Winslow... Recently, I was out in my old neighborhood of Snohomish. We lived right in town, for most of the 50s and 60s. At that time, it was a sleepy little town. Mostly just a bunch of old houses that are now referred to as “historic.” I took...
Today’s Word from Pastor Jim... “Then neither do I condemn you, now go and sin no more.” Jesus One really only has two choices in life; move on or get stuck. Time, months, days, years, the calendar, the stars, the slow decay of our bodies, the mountains working their...
New to South Whidbey? Looking for a church home?
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.
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.
Want 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.
