COVID-19 News

March 2020

In response to the COVID-19 situation, Trinity Lutheran Church is suspending public worship, Bible classes, and other church gatherings.  As soon as we are given permission, we will resume all such activities.

Three of the 10 Commandments are a helpful guide to our decision:

  • The 4th commandment speaks of honouring our parents and
    others in authority over us. As good citizens we strive to obey our government in all things that do not conflict with the truth of God’s Word.
  • The 5th commandment tells us not to harm our neighbour in any way but to support him in any need.
  • The 3rd commandment tells us to not despise the preaching & hearing of God’s Word.

In view of these commandments, for the time being, we will provide for you alternate ways to hear the proclamation of God’s Word
outside of a public gathering. How so?

  1. Listen to sermons at this website. There are hundreds of sermons from the past 13 years. You can listen to the messages and even use the outline as you so desire.
  2. Go to lutheranchurch.ca for worship and devotional resources (Lutheran Church – Canada)
  3. Go to lutheranhour.org for sermons & devotionals  (The Lutheran Hour radio ministry)

We encourage individuals and families to take time and worship at home, gather around and hear God’s Word and to pray for our congregation and the world around us.

This is a challenging time.  But we worship a God who specializes in bringing good out of evil.  Take time now to read Romans 8:37-39.  This is God’s promise for you.  You are loved.
