Easter Disappointment?

No Time for Heaven!

Today’s Word from Pastor Jim...   A vision of heaven: “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared and ready like a bride dressed to meet her husband. I heard a loud voice speaking from the throne: ‘Now God’s home with mankind!...

Silent Saturday

Silent Saturday

Today’s Word from Pastor Jim...   The events of Good Friday are gruesome and painful. It is not the kind of story that I would tell in detail to our Trinity Preschoolers. Savage violence has always been a regrettable part of the human story, and it is sad to say that...

What’s So Good About Good Friday?

Today’s Word from Deacon Amy...   On Good Friday, we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. We remember his trial, his suffering, and his crucifixion. We remember the saddest day in our Christian history. So, if it’s all about remembering such a terrible day, why do we...

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.
