We are a vibrant diverse community made up of life-long Lutherans and those who are new to the Christian faith. One will encounter wise seniors and little children in our midst. We are single, partnered, married, widowed, straight, LGBTQ. We are native Astorians and people from around the world. Our worship, theology and life together celebrate the abundance of God’s love, found in the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus!
Here you can laugh, cry, sing, eat, pray, serve the greater community, and engage in intimate conversations with us about life and faith.
In all that we are, we try to live our mission promise:
To Seek and Share God’s Grace Through Welcome, Worship & Work
Here at Trinity we celebrate the rich diversity with which we have been blessed with persons born in so many different countries. We also celebrate that we are here in the United States of America where we can worship freely, and debate our various issues without fear. Our prayer is for you, on this anniversary of the United States of America, that God’s blessings of freedom, equality and justice will rain down upon our country, and especially in your life – and that you give thanks to our God for many blessings.
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain,
for purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain:
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
and crown they good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.
O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife,
who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life:
America! America! May God thy gold refine,
till all success be nobleness and ev’ry gain divine.
O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years
thine alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears:
America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
confirm thy soul in self-control,
thy liberty in law.
Text: Katherine L. Bates, 1859-1929
