Trinity Lutheran Church was born on August 10, 1958 with the merger of St. Paul American Lutheran Church, which dated back to 1870, and St. Olaf Evangelical Lutheran Church, which was organized in 1937. The two groups met on the sidewalk in front of St. Paul church steps and merged into one group. Singing “A Mighty Fortress Is our God”, they entered the church carrying altar paraments, offering plates, and other useful tools of worship.

Trinity has also become the church home to many people whose churches have closed over the years, including St. John’s Lutheran in Lawler, Immanuel Lutheran in Ionia, and St. John’s Lutheran in Boyd.

An educational building and fellowship hall was dedicated in 1962, and in 2001, an addition to the church building provided new office space, a Fireside Room for meetings, an elevator for access to all levels, and new narthex gathering space.

Trinity Lutheran is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The list of cooperative projects continued to expand, as does our mission to Share God’s Word – Show God’s Love – Shine God’s Light.

Council meets the third Monday of each month at 7:00 PM

Meet our Staff

Kevin Frey

Senior Pastor

I enjoy seeing the Holy Spirit at work within our congregation among our many groups of members.  Trinity has been blessed with talented people who use their gifts in serving God and fulfilling our stated purpose of: “Sharing God’s Word–Showing God’s Love–Shining God’s Light.”  – Pastor Frey

Dan Christensen

Assistant Pastor

I really enjoy the visiting that I get to do in and around Trinity.  It is a joy to talk with folks about where the journey of their lives began and where it has taken them.  Folks have interesting stories about their families, their careers, their interests, and the world in which we live.   All in all it is a real learning experience to recognize the hand of God at work in the lives of His people throughout their lives.
