Trinity Lutheran Church is a member of the Central Illinois District of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. As Lutherans, we in the LCMS share a strong belief in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired inerrant Word of God. It is by God's grace alone, through our faith worked in us by the Holy Spirit, that we believe in Jesus Christ as the only means of salvation.

These ladies have completed two years of confirmation instruction. Their first year of confirmation took place during our vacancy. They attended confirmation class at St. John's Lutheran Church in Pekin, with Pastor Daniel Bishop. They completed their last year of confirmation with our new pastor, Pastor Simeon Raddatz. This is the first confirmation class that Pastor Raddatz will have the honor of confirming. On Confirmation Sunday we will have one combined service in order that we might pray for and encourage our confirmands as they confirm the gifts given to them in Baptism and ask for the Lord's strength in continuing and growing in their Christian life.

Vacation Bible School

Trinity's First Block Party - Saturday, June 23 - 4-7 p.m.
The Board of Evangelism is planning Trinity's first block party on Saturday, June 23 from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. We are inviting neighbors within a couple of blocks from our church. The purpose of this block party is not necessarily to invite them to church, but just to let them know that we are their neighbor and we care about them. There will be a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board. Please join in our block party and help us to welcome our neighbors.

Transportation Help Needed!
We are in need of people who will help with transportation! There are some who would like to come to church if they had a way to get here. This is an important ministry, as transportation should never be the reason anyone is prevented from worship and fellowship. Please contact Pastor Raddatz if you would be able to help with this ministry.

Monday - Wednesday - 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Thursday- 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Friday - Office Closed
