Who We Are

WELCOME TO TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH. You are invited to join with us as we seek to be God's loving community for all who enter here. You are received as a friend . . .
• just as you are, created by God.
• whatever your color, culture and customs, your age, abilities or your sexual orientation.
• wherever circumstances find you… in the midst of change or challenge or pain, in need of strength and hope, or in search of spiritual fullness and friendship.
• whether you are a new visitor or an old friend, have no church home, have doubts or do not believe, or want to follow Christ and pursue peace and justice in Christ's name.
You are embraced as an expression of the diversity and beauty of the creation God has given us.
You are welcome here!
