Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church in North Branch, MN!
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in
America (ELCA) and the Saint Paul Area Synod. As you explore our website we hope
you discover who we are and the mission we share as a faith community. We invite you to join us!
Trinityís beginnings date back to 1887 when Swedish
immigrants originally gathered to center their life in Christ and serve Godís
world. Each successive decade has brought new challenges, new opportunities and
new dreams. Today we are community where people come from all walks of life to
worship weekly, pray daily, study scripture, serve Godís world, walk as
spiritual friends, and give generously to the mission we share as disciples of
Trinity began as an immigrant congregation and in
many ways we still are an immigrant congregation. People no longer come from
Sweden, Norway and other parts of Europe; instead they come from places like
Blaine and Anoka, St. Paulís Eastside and North Minneapolis, and of course North
Branch and its surrounding communities. They also come from out state Minnesota,
Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and beyond. People still come
searching for a spiritual home, a place of belonging, and for meaning and
purpose. Whether you are a newcomer to North Branch or someone who has resided
here for many years, we invite you to come. Be a part of this community that
gathers around Jesus.
We hope that you will perceive that we are a
Spirit-led community that continues to discover that God is up to something in our
church and the world. We hope that you will experience that we are excited by
the energy, convictions and hopes that are alive in Trinity Lutheran Church. Most of all we want to welcome you more personally
because we truly believe God is calling us to be a welcome place of grace where
everyone matters and where everyone has something to offer.
Jesus Christ continues to transform our lives and
our congregation. Come be a part of what God is up to!
ďFor where two or three are
gathered in my name, I am there among them.Ē Matthew 18:20
