Message from the Pastor

Trinity Lutheran Church and school is where all are welcomed.  We are a friendly congregation who loves first time visitors, and would like to have them return.  Our Sunday school classes are based on Biblical Teachings and current issues; our Sunday Worship is a blend of traditional and contemporary music as well as relevant preaching.  After Sunday services there is a time to gather and fellowship over great food.

If you’re looking for a church home please try us.  If you just want a change of pace you are more than welcome to visit.

Our school is composed of Pre-school (3yrs old), Pre-Kindergarten, and K-8th).  Our faculty is composed of loving, nurturing, and above all Christian teachers.  For more please look at our School page.
