“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
Services begin at 10:00 am starting Sunday June 5, 2022.

Sunday School and Choir Rehearsal are on pause for the summer.
Trinity’s congregation is thrilled to be installing our newly ordained Pastor, Rev. Luke M. Csellak Swanson, on Sunday, July 17, 2022 at 11 am in our Sanctuary. Pastor Like is a recent graduate of Millersville University in Pennsylvania and completed his internship right here at Trinity, near the beginning of the pandemic. During that time he has shown us his natural ability to adapt, lead, and lift-up our members and community during unprecedented times. His faith and dedication have already been a great example to us.
We hope you can join us on July 17th, and for worship services this summer. We would love to have you fellowship with us and get to know our new Pastor!
A Note From Our Council President
Trinity’s 75th Anniversary
This year Trinity will be celebrating it’s 75th year of service to God and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Planning for our 75th Anniversary Celebration are just beginning. In May, a 75th Anniversary Celebration Planning Task Force was created. Serving on that Task Force are Norma Beckner, Deb Gordon, Troy Kincer, Deb Metcalf, Candy Puckett and Louise Reep. Our first planning meeting will be held in June with the celebration event to be held sometime in the Fall.
This will be great time for us to look back and celebrate the past by reminiscing and remembering the saints of Trinity, past ministries, past activities and events, friends, former Pastors and the many changes that Trinity has seen over the years. So, begin the process of looking back through your personal archives for pictures and begin to recall those stories of our life together as God’s church at Trinity. We will be reaching out.
We have so much to be thankful for, and we are blessed to have this opportunity to look back and remember where we came from with an eye on the future and as we look to God to help us be the servants that He wants and needs us to be.
So now just a little history on Trinity (the information below was extracted from Trinity’s website):
- On January 2, 1947, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church began under the direction of Rev. C. Max Huddle, appointed mission developer by the Board of American Missions. The first service was held in the Lee Theater on Williamson Road on February 2, 1947. Sixty-four people were in attendance and the message was delivered by the Rev. Max Huddle.
- On October 12, 1950, a contract was obtained for the erection of a church building and on February 14, 1951, cornerstone laying ceremonies were held. On October 14, 1951, the church dedication services was held.
Stay tuned. More to come.
Thanks be to God.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 NRSV
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”
