Welcome!

Trinity's vision is to "know Christ and make Him known".  There are many opportunities to "know Christ" through Worship, Bible Classes and Sunday School.  There are also many opportunities to help "make Him known" through Fellowship Events, Community Events, Christian Hospitality, and as "Conversation Partners" in ESL Bible Classes. All are welcome to join in all activities and take part in Trinity's vision.

We have an awesome God who loves us unconditionally. What better way to honour Him then to worship Him, learn more about His love, give thanks for the gift of His precious Son who gave His life so we could inherit eternal life, and help others learn more about Him.

May God bless you today, and every day!

It's all about Jesus

October 31, 2017 marks the 500th Anniversary of the start of the Reformation when Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses on the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany. In the 95 Theses, Luther said the church at that time had strayed from the teachings of the Bible. The church was teaching that people had to earn their way into heaven, but the Bible actually teaches that because of God’s grace and the special love Jesus has for people, anyone who has faith in what Jesus has done for them will receive God’s forgiveness and live with God forever. It is impossible to earn our way to be right with God. Only through Jesus’ love and what He has done for us can we be made right with God. Luther’s gift was to help people understand the Bible and that our relationship with God is all about Jesus.

 
Reformation Celebration

This year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation begun by Martin Luther...  the 500th "birthday" of the Lutheran Church (and all Protestant Chuches).

Update from Nicaragua

tools-in-Nicaragua-20170130

January 26, 2017 -- Trinity members, Reg and Sean, are currently in Nicaragua helping at the Chinandega Lutheran Mission and at several churches in the area. Reg is training individuals to use computers, and Sean, along with a few co-workers from BC, are doing extensive upgrades of electrical wiring to make the electrical safe and meet modern standards.

Reg writes: "This week was spent on public and deaconess training. However, today, we opened up the room with the tools donated by Trinity members; a true blessing. Sorting and distribution will take a good part of next week. However, I can tell you that today shovels and picks are being used in the garden. Sean and crew will be using the electric drills next week. Thank you from your brothers and sisters in Nicaragua."

The-Crew-Christmas-Tour-2015

All are invited to hear The Crew perform at Trinity Lutheran Church during the 11am Worship Service on Sunday, November 29.  The Crew completed a 16,000km USA tour this summer and Trinity is pleased The Crew will make time to join our worship service as part of their 2015 Christmas Tour. As they put it: you will hear "some of our songs and some other songs by others; some acapella songs that are Christmassy and some unacapella ones that aren't.  Or something." Actually, we don't know what to expect, but we know it will be enjoyable.  Each performance is a bit different. Everyone is welcome to come. Invite your friends & neighbours!  Note that Nov 29 is the first Sunday in Advent...  having The Crew here is a great way to begin preparations for Christmas. The Crew's website is www.thecrewguys.com.
