In addition to the many ways we reach out to our local communities, Trinity Lutheran Church also participates in many service initiatives at the national and international level.
Lutheran World Relief
Lutheran World Relief (LWR) is a nonprofit organization that helps families in the world’s poorest communities build the resilience they need to thrive. Trinity Lutheran Church and School supports LWR through the collection of Personal Care/Hygiene Kits and the World Relief Mission Quilts program.
Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML)
Trinity Lutheran Church offers two LWML societies, The Ladies Aid group meets during the day on the second Wednesday of each month. The Women with Mission group meets in the evening on the first Monday of each month. Both groups fully participate in LWML at district and national levels and support the missions of LWML through their mite contributions. These contributions support the mission grants of the LWML.
