Trinity Lutheran Church is a Reconciling in Christ Congregation. RIC congregations clearly state that they welcome people of all sexual orientation and gender identity. The pictures below are from our celebration of RIC status on July 13, 2014.

The Season of Lent
Join us every Wednesday in Lent for worship at 12:00 noon and 7:00 p.m. Watch our video!
Check out our 2015 Lenten Informational Booklet outlining our regular and special events during this time of reflection and preparation.
We offer our Lenten Devotional 2015 which you may use in your home. Printed copies of this booklet are available in our gathering space.
Adult Forum during Lent: Pam Gabel leads a seven-week series that takes an in depth look at the last 24 hours of Jesus' life and his resurrection. "Twenty Four Hours that Changed the World" by Adam Hamilton, draws on insights from history, archaeology, geography, and the Bible, to provide a deeper understanding of the most amazing day in history. Weekly videos take us to the sites where those earth-shaking events took place, and we walk where Jesus walked along the road that led to the pain and triumph of the cross.
Join us on March 29 for Palm/Passion Sunday to begin Holy Week. Palm branches will be provided and the Passion Gospel will be read, lead by our Sunday School children who will also sing. First Communion will be celebrated at the 11:00 service.
The Paschal Triduum begins on Maundy Thursday with a traditional service at 12:00 noon followed by a luncheon in the Lounge. Seniors are especially encouraged to attend for the "Come to Trinity Day."

Our Good Friday Cantata at 7:00 p.m. will feature the Trinity Festival Choir, Chamber Orchestra and soloists who will present Mozart's Missa Brevis in d minor, KV 65.
