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 3 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

“…Sometimes You Get What You Need” by Pastor Jim Lindus
Today’s Word from Deacon Amy... When I was a teenager, I loved James Herriot’s books about being a veterinarian in the countryside of Yorkshire, England. He is, in my opinion, one of the best story tellers around. His books were hard to put down. I was drawn to the...

Today’s Word from Deacon Amy “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:18 A friend shared an incredible story about a sheep this week. It seems that this sheep had been wandering the wilderness in...
Today’s Word from Pastor Tom Kidd... I grew up in Rainier Valley, Seattle. I believe at the time of my Franklin High School graduation our student population was approaching 50% non-white. So while I grew up in a pretty integrated world, my father had an entirely...
Today’s Word from Pastor Jim... One of the great joys of serving alongside the people of God at Trinity Lutheran Church is the privilege of hearing your stories, struggles, joys and sorrows. We rejoice with families as they welcome children or grandchildren into the...
Today’s Word from Minister of Music Karl Olsen... All God’s critters got a place in the choir. Bill Staines Can you be inspired by a goat? Or by its story? Well, I guess that depends on the goat. And the story, and, in this case, the storyteller. Who loves goats....
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.
