Welcome to Trinity Lutheran in Bradenton, FL!

We are an inclusive congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America  located on the Gulf Coast in the heart of Bradenton, FL. We invite you to fully participate in the life of Trinity.

  • We strive together each day to live out our mission: Being neighbor + Sharing God’s transforming love.  We partner with community organizations to support their efforts to serve individuals and families throughout Manatee County.
  • Our building hosts many community interest activities.
  • We come together at Trinity and throughout the community to stir up the gift of faith in each other - individuals and families - people of all ages.
  • We provide multiple worship and learning opportunities for all God’s people.

Faith formation begins early!

In addition to our children, youth and families programming at the church, we have a preschool on our campus. Tree of Life Preschool offers affordable, Christian preschool and daycare for ages Infant to 5 years. We are a free, accredited VPK site, and a Certified School Readiness Provider.

What's Going on at Trinity...

Thank you to all the children and families who visited Trinity last weekend for our Trunk or Treat gift to you!

The winners of the guessing contests were a brother and sister!   Alissa guessed the weight of the pumpkin at 20 pounds 10 ounces and the actual weight was 20 pounds, 8 ounces.  (Wow that was close!)    Her brother, Jeremiah, guessed the amount of spiders at 163 and the actual was 164! (Awesome!)

Those who brought their "trunks" voted among themselves for the Best Decorated. This year's winners were:

1st place: Tree of Life Preschool teachers and families (5 vehicles - Farm theme)

2nd place: Gwin and Leonne Wilburn  (Hippies)

3rd place: Traci Pope  (Harvest)

Many thanks to the 75+ volunteers who worked non-stop to help make Trunk or Treat another successful event.  Thanks also to those who donated extra candy (we went through pounds and pounds)!   Mark your calendar for October 27th next year!
