Trinity Lutheran Church (ELCA) is an inclusive and affirming Christian congregation. We believe that through our connections to God, each other, and our broader community we can make a difference in a hurting world. Through worship, learning, service, and fun we strive to create a safe and grace-filled place of belonging. We want you to know that no matter what you have endured, what doubts or questions you may have, or what struggles you are facing that you are loved by God and we’d love to be on your life’s journey with you.
We are a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation, which means we affirm and support people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions, and we are committed to racial equity.
We are small enough that you won’t feel lost in the crowd, but big enough to care for you and serve our community. At Trinity, you will find caring and authentic people who will be excited to meet you. We’d love to have you join us!
Reflecting the arts in our worship spaces
Throughout history people have used all different mediums of art to convey beliefs and invite curiosity, deepen relationships with God, and express beauty. Trinity values artistic expression in worship and faith formation.
Architecture is an art form which has been used by churches to communicate truths about God. The worship space is both dynamic and elegant; the materials and design used give a nod to the past, while still feeling fresh and modern. Renowned architect, Lawrence Cook, FAIA, designed our sanctuary and remodeled our social hall. His firm has won more than fifty awards for outstanding architecture design in addition to recognition for service to religious and charitable institutions. Lawrence has served on several architectural design juries and chaired the national Design Jury of the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture.
Our congregation’s emblem was designed by Catherine Kapikian. This symbol expresses our Trinitarian identity, along with our baptismal call to connect constructively with the world. We invite you to explore what meanings or images you see in it.
Catherine is a site-specific liturgical artist. She has received scores of commissions in contexts such as: churches of diverse denominations; university, seminary, military, and hospital chapels; retreat centers; and hotel and civic center lobbies where ecclesial installations for national events resided. Founder and Director Emerita of the Henry Luce Center for the Arts and Religion, she consults with congregations, teaches, and authored “Art in Service of the Sacred.” Her website with liturgical commissions is http://www.catherinekapikian.com/artist.htm
Our worship space houses a J.P. Moeller opus 8357 28-rank organ. Additionally, we own five octaves of handbells and five octaves of handchimes. These instruments are used in worship and concert offerings. The acoustic architecture of our building brings out the best in vocal and instrumental music.
