Worship this Week


Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church offers traditional historic worship services centered on Jesus Christ crucified for the forgiveness of sin.

In the Divine Service God comes to us in Word and Sacrament (Holy Baptism and Holy Communion) to give us the forgiveness of sins won for us by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Please join us as God brings to us these amazing gifts.
