At Trinity, we seek to share the gifts God has given us by serving others.
Trinity Lutheran Church has an active music program that serves to aid the worship life of the congregation. Our music program has opportunities for all ages and musical abilities. Our musical groups include:
This group is for players of all ages and skill levels from beginner on up. Rehearsal schedule is fluid and on an “as needed” basis. Generally, we play accompaniment on congregational hymns, but we also have instrumental pieces for different parts of the service such as prelude, offering, or postlude.
This group is for kids starting at first grade and up, but we don’t turn away adults either! No experience with chimes or music is needed—we’ll teach you to read notes. We meet on Monday evenings at 6:15 p.m. for 30 minutes. We play during services for prelude or offering as we have music ready.
The Handbell group is for ages 10 and up. It is helpful to have some musical experience for this group, but we can help with that. We play throughout the year with congregational hymns, choir pieces, and other parts of the service. Rehearsals are Monday evening at 6:45 p.m. as needed.
Adult Choir (postponed due to COVID-19)
The Adult Choir is for all people who want to lift their voice in song. We support the congregation by helping learn new hymns and service music as well as assisting with the liturgy. We also sing choral anthems throughout the year. Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM.
Trinity is active in supporting the international mission work of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. We actively pray for our missionaries and raise money to keep them on the mission field.
Currently we are supporting:
Rev. Dr. Tom and Mary Aadland
serving in Kenya, Africa
Rev. Ryan and Emily McDermott
and their children—Rhys, Evangeline,
Joshua, and Kaj—serving in Togo, Africa
Rev. Matt and Kali Wood
and their children—Laurel, Eleanor, and Caroline—serving in Indonesia
LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF QUILTERS
Each Tuesday morning at 9:00 AM, the Trinity Quilters meet. They gather to make quilts that are given to Lutheran World Relief (LWR) for use around the world. These quilts are used to provide warmth, shelter, and a way for refugees to carry personal belongings when they have to flee their homeland because of wars and other dangers.
Each quilt consist of three layers. The top is twelve, 21-inch squares (multiple colors), sewn together. The middles are made of quilt batting, and the backs are usually used bed sheets or fleece. Once the layers are put together, the quilters hand-tie the layers together and then sew the edges into the hem. Finished quilts measure 60” by 80” and are taken to the LWR warehouse in South St. Paul where they are bailed into large bundles and shipped wherever relief is needed.
There are ladies who like to sew, others who cut the squares, and still others who iron the fabric. Anyone of any ability is welcome to join!
The Women of Trinity Lutheran Church are a part of the Minnesota South, Lyndale Conference, Southeast Suburban Zone of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). For specific information on the Minnesota South branch of the LWML, click here.
Our society hosts a spring retreat each year that includes both a Bible study component and a servant event. In December, we host our annual Advent by Candlelight event. This event includes a program, singing, dessert, and fellowship that help us prepare for the birth of our Savior. Our society is also in charge of the kitchen at Trinity Lutheran Church. We keep it stocked and also assist with events that need the kitchen.
Throughout the year, we host an annual plant sale, serve Lenten suppers, stock greeting cards for the congregation, collect Mites monthly, host an LWML Sunday, bake Thanksgiving bread loaves, and attend various zone and conference rallies as well as district and national conventions.
All ladies are welcome to join us!
Our youth—5th grade and up—are a part of our Young Believers Lutheran Youth Fellowship (LYF). We meet twice a month on Sunday evenings for fun, food, fellowship, and prayer. Throughout the year, we also have events such as bowling, movie parties, lock-ins, a day at Valleyfair, and various servant events.
Trinity’s seniors gather each month for fellowship, learning, and food. Throughout the year, we meet for potlucks after Bible class to plan our events, play games, and enjoy fellowship with each other. We also go to various places in the area for learning and fun. In the past, we have gone to plays and movies together, the Eagle Center in Wabasha, boat rides, and more. We welcome everyone to come and join us!
