Ministries are an integral part of every church community. At Holy Trinity Lutheran Church we have various ministry opportunities that seek to strengthen personal relationships and inspire spiritual growth within our church community as we all lend helping hands to those who are in need outside our walls.
Lutherans proclaim God’s love and grace for all people. We seek to pour the love we first receive from God out into the world again.
We encourage everybody to be involved and take part in the mission of the church.
