Welcome to First Trinity and

St Matthew Lutheran Churches

FIRST TRINITY  ST MATTHEW

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. 

Hybrid Sunday Worship 

This fall we are offering hybrid worship, both in-person and virtual, to accommodate the needs of our communities. We will meet in-person at First Trinity in September, at St. Matthew in October, and at First Trinity in November. At in-person services we will continue to observe COVID safety protocols, including masking and maintaining six feet of distance between those who don't share a household. We will also livestream all worship services on Zoom and YouTube. For the Zoom link and bulletin, please contact .

Worship Volunteers Needed  

Now that we are back to hybrid worship, we need your help to make it happen! Please faithfully consider volunteering as a Worship Assistant, Usher, or Zoom Host. If you're willing to serve in either of these roles, please contact MJ at
