    Welcome to St. Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church

    During this Lenten season, we praise God for His righteous Son, who perfectly kept all of Gods commandments for us and paid the full price of our disobedience. Let us praise Him with hearts filled with Christs spirit of obedience.

    I will be their God and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:33). What does it mean to be Gods people? It means we recognize that everything we have and everything we are belongs to God. We arent owners of anything; we are merely stewards of the gifts God has given us. It means we are willing to use our gifts and our lives to care for our neighbors and the world, just as God cares for us.
