Welcome to First Trinity and

St Matthew Lutheran Churches


Welcome to First Trinity and St Matthew Lutheran Churches. You're invited to journey in faith, love, understanding, inclusivity, advocacy, and awareness. We as individuals are not perfect, but we strive to be better witnesses of Christ. 

NOTE: Due to the spread of COVID-19 in the worldwide pandemic, we are not worshipping or gathering in-person together for the foreseeable future. Instead, we offer many virtual resources and events to help you find community during this difficult time of uncertainty.  

Sunday Worship 10am

You are invited to worship via Zoom, Facebook  Live, or YouTube Live on Sunday mornings at 10AM! If you miss the livestream, you can watch the worship video anytime throughout the week on our website, Facebook, or YouTube. To follow along with the order of worship, here is our online bulletin for this upcoming Sunday! 

Tuesday Evening Fellowship 

Gather Tuesday evenings with the community including friends of Grace Lutheran Church via Zoom for a series of fellowship, prayer, and worship. Join for any/all of the scheduled activities. For the Zoom link, email

Wednesday Bible Study 12pm

You're invited to a drop-in community Bible Study on Zoom every Wednesday where you'll find discussion of readings from the Bible in a literary context, while also taking time to pray with one another. Email  for the Zoon link.

Sunday School

Welcome to Sunday School for all ages! This is an opportunity to grow in faith learning the Word of God in the Bible and the love God has for us and the world. Participate virtually by watching new lessons every week on our YouTube channel.


Sunday Worship Music

 This Sunday we’re excited to have musical guests, Double bassist, Christian Gray, and oboist, Alicia Maloney! They are a husband and wife duo based in the Washington, DC area. In addition to performing together, they frequently play with ensembles throughout the East Coast, including the Washington National Opera, National Symphony, and Alexandria Symphony. Beyond arranging and performing works for their unique combination of instruments, they both enjoy teaching and maintain private studios in Northern Virginia. They’re thrilled to be regular guests at First Trinity and St. Matthew Lutheran Church services.

Leadership Academy 

One of the Metro D.C. Synod’s priorities is to equip and develop healthy leaders on various topics and ministry tools led by industry and theological experts. From developing new worship experiences to getting in the weeds of communication tools to better tell your story, you can expect to leave each academy session uplifted and empowered to serve in the capacity God is calling you. Watch past videos or register for a new one here.
