Everyone Is Welcome

Trinity Lutheran Church is a community of people who believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Many people like to be made "members" of a congregation. We welcome you to delve into that opportunity.  For our college students, we'd like you to think of this worship space as your church home away from home. If you're interested in becoming more attached to this place, we have "associate memberships" for you - so you can retain your membership at your home church while still allowing us to be an active part of your faith milestones.  

There are many people who are uncomfortable with the idea of membership but still worship and volunteer regularly at Trinity Lutheran. We like to think of all people worshiping as Disciples of Jesus, regardless of membership.  We are thankful that people choose to stay connected with this worshiping community. Regardless of church affiliation, everyone is welcome to come, worship, be encouraged, and partake in the full life of Christ.  

At Trinity Lutheran we offer "get to know you" times throughout the year to become a part of our church family. New Members/Disciples are Welcomed into the church family in the Spring and Fall.
