What we do

Our Ministries

School Ministry

Our flagship ministry at Trinity has always been our school.  Christian education is among our highest priorities.  For more information on the school and how it could work for your family, check out our sister site pk8.trinityl.org.

Connection Groups

Connection groups are a gathering of people who meet regularly and are open to a growing relationship with Jesus and each other through studying His word and praying, caring for one another and serving others.

Care Ministries

As the body of Christ, we care for and support one another in the various stages of our lives. Whether someone is in need of prayer, hospital or home visitation, Stephen Ministry, or would like to participate in our GriefShare or Divorce Care programs, there is a caring community to help.

Outreach Ministries

It is our goal as a congregation to reach out, in the name of Jesus, to serve those in need in our local community, our nation, and the world. We participate and support various outreach ministries throughout the year.

Fellowship Ministries

God created us to be in relationship with Him, and also created us to be in relationship with one another. Through fellowship, our faith is strengthened and our joy is shared.

Featured Classes

Membership Classes

Basics of the Lutheran Faith

Basics of the Lutheran Faith is for those who are transferring their membership from another Lutheran church, or who are active in a church other than Lutheran, but would like to be confirmed in the Lutheran Church

Rites of Christian Initiation for Adults

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is for those who are new to the Christian faith, or have been away from the church for quite some time, baptized or unbaptized. Together we journey through the story of our faith as we connect it to our life in the church.

Bible Classes

Pastor’s Class – Modern Biblical Family

This class gives the opportunity to dig deeper into the themes of our Weekend Sermon Series of the same name. We will examine the Scriptures in greater detail, have time for discussion and questions, and pray for families, including our own.

Adult Study – Body Concept
“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” This study is an exploration of what scripture says about our oneness and our individuality in the body of Christ and how this should work out in our relationships with one another and our Lord.

Youth & Kids Classes

Trinity Kids

Preschool through 4th graders are invited to share Jesus through weekly classes as we explore more about God’s love for us and have FUN together.

Volunteer Central

How Do I Serve?

Want to get involved in ministry here at Trinity, this is the place to be.  Below you will find links to our volunteer roles, and a form to get signed up.

When Do I Serve?

With all the activities and commitments these days, it is hard to keep them all straight.  Not to worry with our volunteer management system you can log-in to see when the next time you play in the worship team or greet people as they arrive.

What is Elvanto?

Elvanto is our new church management system.  Basically, it is software to help us run all the functions of the church.  It has recently been purchased by our online giving provider, Tithe.ly.  

Why do I need to use it?

Elvanto will handle all of our volunteer scheduling, for one.  It will also allow members to access and update their personal information and provided a secure online member directory.
