Who We Are

It is our purpose at Trinity to share the love of God in Christ Jesus with such joy that more and more people would come into a transformed relationship with Christ.
Trinity Lutheran Church belongs to the Sierra Pacific Synod, part of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. (ELCA) Trinity was established in 1966 with 54 charter members. Over the years we have seen a tremendous growth in spirit and ministry. We currently minister to over 600 people who call this congregation their church home. In addition, our Sonshine Enrichment Center Preschool serves over 170 young people and their families.

Our Services

What are services like?
8:30am - Traditional Lutheran Service with Holy Communion using the liturgy from the Lutheran Book of Worship. Coffee Fellowship is served on the patio afterwards. 10:00am - Family Worship with Holy Communion. This service follows a less traditional form and includes a Children's message after which children may depart for Sunday School. Sunday School is available for children from three years old through high school seniors. Coffee Fellowship is served on the patio afterwards.

What is the community like?
We are vibrant progressive community located in the east bay of San Francisico. We host families from the silcon valley who enjoy the small town feel of a suburban lifestyle, complete with a main street, farmers market and parks all over the place. A safe place to raise a family, to take a walk, to ride your bikes, to hang with your friends and neighbors. Our church is a caring community that works together, prays together and worships our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We like each other! And we love the Lord our God!

What if I'm not a Christian?
Welcome! Come and explore and learn about the love of Jesus Christ! Why may be time to open yourself up to a new adventure in life that is truly fullfilling and life giving. We can be made new in Christ Jesus.
