We are a multi-generational church that embraces individuals of different cultures, backgrounds, gender, and age. We believe our personal strengths and individual differences create a much more dynamic, vibrant, and inspired congregation that is willing to step out in faith to worship God and serve others. In addition to our worship services and special programs, we also offer a myriad of small groups that meet on a regular basis and are designed to help people grow in their relationship with God and with one another. These include Bible Study groups, Prayer Groups, Service Groups, Fellowship Groups, and Women’s Circles.
Our worship services follow the biblically-based liturgy and hymns of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Large-print bulletins and sound amplifiers are available if needed. On the first, third and fifth Sunday of each month and on Festival Sundays, we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. We invite all baptized Christians who believe that our Lord is truly present in His Body and Blood to join us. Our congregation offers Holy Communion to children beginning at approximately 10 years of age, when youth begin understanding of the blessed Sacrament. Younger children who have not yet received their first Communion are invited to come forward for a special blessing from the Pastor. In our Communion service, we come to kneel at the altar to receive the bread and wine. Let the Pastor know prior to the worship service if you need a gluten-free wafer. The service opens with confession and forgiveness, followed by hymns, Bible readings, a sermon, the Apostles Creed, and a congregational prayer.
The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching, the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. ELCA teaching or theology serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. The ELCA’s official Confession of Faith identifies the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments; the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds; and the Lutheran confessional writings in the Book of Concord as the basis for our teaching.
Military / Veterans / First Responders: We enthusiastically support our first responders, veterans, and active duty service men and women of all branches of service....Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy, and Coast Guard. We also value the commitment and sacrifices these selfless individuals and their families have given to our nation and community. Many military members, veterans, first responders, and their families from the surrounding area call Holy Trinity Lutheran their church home. May you find peace in Psalm 91. Come visit us to see how welcoming we can be.
Seasonal Snowbirds: Our seasonal "Snowbirds" from up north are a valued and loved part of our congregation, and many have been faithfully attending Holy Trinity Lutheran church during the winter months for 5, 10, 15 years or more. Psalm 133:1 states, "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Come see why Holy Trinity Lutheran Church is so warm and inviting.
Families and Youth: We are a family-friendly church. There are many spiritual and social activities that support and vitalize our families and youth in their walk with Christ. In fact in Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
