Sunday Session

On Sundays at 9am, from September to May, kids from preschool through 6th grade connect before worship for ‘Sunday Session’ in the Education Building. Following Sunday Session, they attend worship in the sanctuary, 10am – 11am, where they enjoy seeing the traditions of our faith and community life modeled for them. We believe this is an important part of their faith formation. All are welcome!

Affirmation of Baptism

This program for our 7th and 8th graders meets on Sundays at 9am in the Education Building, September through May, in preparation for Affirmation of Baptism. Affirmation of Baptism is when young Lutheran followers of Christ publicly declare for themselves that they will live out the promises made for them by their parents and sponsors in their baptism (for those who were baptized as infants). For more information about what Lutherans in the ELCA believe about Affirmation of Baptism, please visit the following link: https://www.elca.org/Our-Work/Congregations-and-Synods/Faith-Practices/Living-Our-Baptismal-Covenant.

First Communion

Anyone in second grade or older (adults, included) is welcome to attend our three-session First Communion class held during Lent each year. We meet before worship from 9am – 9:50am in Fellowship Hall, and the First Communion service is celebrated on the Sunday after Easter Sunday. Class dates are listed on Facebook and in ‘Trinity at a Glance’. Please contact the church office or connect with Pastor for more information and/ or to register for the class.

New Member Meetings

A couple of times throughout the year, Pastor hosts an information meeting for those interested in either becoming Lutheran and/ or joining Trinity Lutheran Church as a full member. Our conversation topics range from an overview of Lutheran faith and history to the rights and responsibilities of being a member at this church. All are welcome!

Wednesday Bible Study

Join us for coffee and tea on Wednesday afternoons, 1pm – 2:30pm, in the Education Building Lounge. Pastor leads an interesting and engaging conversation on the scriptures for the coming Sunday’s worship service. Various topics of life and faith are explored, especially in light of current events. All are welcome. Please come with an open mind and an open heart.

TLC Book Club

A few times throughout the year, members and friends of Trinity will connect once a week for over a month to discuss chapters from a book we are enjoying together. Conversations are usually guided by Pastor or the Director of Youth and Family Ministries. Book topics dive into Lutheran theology, spiritual practices, faith and morals, ecumenical and interreligious dialogue, social justice, and more. Information about our next book and where to purchase it will be advertised on Facebook or in ‘Trinity at a Glance’. Stay tuned!
