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
May the Spirit of the Crucified and Risen Christ dwell with you today, and all through the week. Christ goes ahead of us to meet us in all the places where we find ourselves. May you feel his Resurrection Power in your life today!
Trinity to participate in the Cooperative Internship Program with the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia (LTSP).
After informed discussion, the congregation voted today to participate. We begin the process of application now with hopes of having a seminary student here by September.
The intern is a “student pastor” who will be mentored by Pastor Paul and participate in all aspects of parish ministry here at Trinity. The person chosen will be part time, in classes at Philadelphia from Tuesday-Thursday and with us Friday – Monday. This person would serve part time here at Trinity for 3 years. An internship committee is now in place with the following persons serving: Angela Marino, Chair, Richard Hayden, Nile Mathias, Maritza Tamayo and Pastor Paul.
Stay tuned for more information about this exciting venture!
