What's Going on at Trinity...

Join us for a very special GIFT (Generations Growing in Faith Together).

The ELCA was formed 30 years ago when 3 Lutheran bodies merged. Today, millions of Lutheran Christians in the nearly 10,000 congregations of the ELCA make up this diverse church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. 

Trinity is an ELCA congregation. What does that mean to us, today, here in Bradenton?   Join us this Sunday morning at 10 to learn about the ELCA's mission, vision, values. Discover how those tenets impact our lives, daily! 

ALL are welcome to experience this GIFT event - Generations Growing In Faith Together. You'll feel blessed!


"God's Work. Our Hands." is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. ELCA churches around the country plan ministry projects in September each year.

The Habitat ReStore is one of our 2018 service projects for God's Work. Our Hands.  On Saturday, September 22nd, 8am-noon, we will assist at the store in a variety of ways. 

Sign up on the Blue Form at worship to be part of our project for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's annual day of service. 

We are also painting at the Habitat Interfaith Build in Bradenton on Saturday, September 15th. We have filled our spots for this project! Thank you to our volunteers.

The Seven Deadly Sins Sermon Series is underway!   

If you are unable to be at worship on the weekends, Tuesday worship is designed to fit into your schedule. You will hear scripture and find both challenge and hope in the message for our everyday lives.  This brief, celebration-style worship includes Holy Communion. Invite neighbors and friends to join you.

For several more weeks, come and explore with us those things (the 7 Deadly Sins) that draw us away from a loving relationship with God and one another!  Pastor Bobbie's messages will be uploaded to the right-hand column of the Worship tab as the series progresses.

To read the messages on the "10 Words" series we have just concluded, use the links on the right-hand column on the Worship tab of this website.
