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.

Ushers and Bible Breakfast Helpers Needed
We are in need of ushers, especially for the 10:45 service. And, we need Bible Breakfast helpers for the 4th Sunday of the month and when there is a 5th Sunday of the month. Please contact the church office at if you can help.

Men's Ministry
The Trinity Men's Ministry has begun and we are actively looking for any interested men to be a part of the group. Our purpose is to build friendships, a support network of Christian men, help others and explore what it means to be a Lutheran man in the
modern age. Learn more >

Water Donations - No Longer Needed
Thank you to everyone who donated water for the Marigold Festival parade. We now have plenty of water so donations are no longer needed. THANK YOU!!

Marigold Parade
Trinity is participating in the Pekin Marigold Parade. We need plenty of walkers to help hand out Bibles, bottled water, booklets, bracelets and frisbees. There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board. Thank you to everyone who donated bottled water. We have more than enough! We will meet at the church at 8:00 a.m., leave our cars in the church parking lot and ride the float to the parade line-up. If you have a Trinity t-shirt please wear it, if not that's okay too!

Operation Christmas Child
Our Sunday School is participating in Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan's Purse. Operation Christmas Child shares the love of Jesus Christ, the joy of Christmas and delivers gift packed shoe boxes to millions of boys and girls worldwide. We are beginning collecting items in mid-September. We are asking our Sunday School children to bring in new, items to help pack shoe boxes – for boys and girls ages 5 - 9. Gifts do not need to be expensive. You might try searching the dollar stores in town. Please remember items need to fit inside an average size shoe box. We will be collecting items through the end of October. Acceptable items: Small Dolls, stuffed animals, pens, pencils, sharpeners, brushes, combs, toy cars, crayons, markers, wash cloths, yo-yos, solar calculators, socks, jump ropes, coloring books, hats, sunglasses, balls, playing cards, toothbrushes, barrettes, hair clips, school supplies, bar soap and puzzles. Items that cannot go in the boxes: Candy; toothpaste; gum; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; seeds; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans. There will be official Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes in Room 10 for people who would like to take one home and fill it.

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.
