New to Trinity?
​Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Trinity.
​Our hope is that this might be a place for you to belong and grow together as you hear the Gospel message of Jesus.

Our Beliefs
Trinity is a congregation of the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod. We believe:

  • The Bible, the inspired Word of God, is the only reliable source of truth for Christian faith and life;
  • The Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—is the one, true living and almighty God;
  • All people, by nature, are sinful and deserve God’s anger and punishment for their sins;
  • Jesus Christ, true God and true man, through His innocent suffering and death, has redeemed the world from sin and hell and cleanses us from all sin;
  • By His victorious resurrection, Jesus defeated death and gives to all believers the gift of eternal life and at death, the believer enters glory in heaven;
  • These blessings are received by God’s grace (His undeserved love) through faith in Jesus, worked by the Holy Spirit through the hearing of God’s Word and Holy Baptism; and
  • We are strengthened in our faith in Jesus Christ through the regular use of God’s Word and the Lord’s Supper.

Sunday School & Nursery
The nursery is open every Sunday during both serves and is staffed during the Sunday school hour so parents can attend Bible study. Children (even noisy ones!) are encouraged to participate in services along with their parents to create the habit of participation as they grow older. To help with short attention spans, we provide activity bags in the narthex and a children’s message during the service. Should the need arise to take your children out of the sanctuary during worship, the service is on screens in the narthex and in the nursery. We want people of all ages and walks of life to be able to hear God’s Word in a way they can understand and that connects them to the whole body of Christ!

Sunday school classes are offered for kids age 3 and up! Sunday school classes start at 9:15am, and we meet in the education wing (long, brick building next to the main entrance).
