Trinity's mission

EQUIPPING people to GROW in Christ at home and go in SERVICE to the world.


"to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12)

"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named" (Ephesians 3:14-15)

to GROW in Christ at home:

" But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen." (2 Peter 3:18)

and go in SERVICE to the world:

"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)

TRINIty's mission values

Walking in worship and the word, learning together, faith in families, and being outwardly focused are the values that guide our actions as a congregation and reveal the strengths of the church.

Walking in Worship and the Word: (Acts 2:46-47, Mark 12:30, Col. 3:16-17, 1 Cor. 10:31)

We are a church that is centered on God's word and a worshipful life.

We show this by:

  • frequent opportunities for worship, school chapels and devotions in order to help all grow in Christ
  • striving to glorify and praise God in everything we do
  • reverent thankfulness and prayerfulnes in our approach to life
  • regularly praying all kinds of prayers for all kinds of people and situations recognizing that God is in control and answers according to His will

Learning Together (Acts 2:42, Prov 27:17)

We are a church that learns and grows in Christ through relationships with one another.

We show this by:

  • championing life-long education among our membership
  • providing a Lutheran day school in our community since 1870
  • gathering togehter for Sunday school, bible studies, and small groups
  • a shared humility that we don't know everything
  • an earnest desire to grow in our knowledge so that we can share with others

Faith in Families (Gen. 2:24, Acts 2:46b, Deut. 6:4-9)

We are a church that treasures God's gift of family, His first institution.

We show this by:

  • recognizing and naming the primary growth center for faith is the home
  • having faith in parents and other adults to be influential spiritual leaders
  • intentionally connecting with and equipping parents as spiritual leaders in their homes
  • scheduling and structuring church and school events in a way that is geared to and for families
  • encouraging, equipping, and inspiring all to live a life of every day faith
  • speaking the importance of changing the world, starting at home

Outwardly Focused (Ph. 2:3-5, Acts 2:44-45, 2 Cor. 9:6-8)

We are a church that lives generously.

We show this by:

  • collaborating to use spirtual gifts in service (World Changers Program)
  • consistant, ongoing care for the needy:  focusing on elderly, hospitalized, and impoverished
  • being warmly invitational with people we encounter
  • responding to specific, expressed needs
  • proportional giving (tithing) as a congregation (and as individuals)
