Trinity CARES

Trinity Lutheran Church exists to make known the love of Christ in all things.


One of the ways we do that is through our human care efforts. Led by lay volunteers from the congregation, we strive to be a blessing to those both inside and outside of our faith family who are in need at this particular time.


For any questions concerning Trinity's human care efforts or to join our growing group of volunteers, please contact Matt Makela ( 

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry Caregivers are lay congregation members trained to provide one-to-one care to those experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or relocation.


Stephen Ministry Caregivers come from all walks of life, but they all share a passion for bringing Christ's love and care to people during a time of need.

Grief Care

Grief Share

Trinity sends a series of four books to help those grieving the loss of a loved one.


The books are sent at specific intervals of time following the death, to help those grieving in their journey from grief to healing.


For more information about this effort, please contact Judy Hake at: 

Trinity is happy to partner with St. Mark Lutheran Church and be supportive of their Grief Share program.


Dates of upcoming sessions at St. Mark will be posted once scheduled.

Trinity is ready to provide tangible support to anyone who comes to our building during worship services, perhaps not with the intention of joining the service but to find a warm place on a cold day.


Bags of nutritious and ready-to-be-eaten food are available from our church ushers. Also included in these bags is information about our church and a listing of community agencies that provide assistance for anyone going through a difficult time.


For more information about this opportunity, please contact Matt Makela at:

Love Comes Down

At Christmas time we bless students at Trinity Lutheran School and Longfellow Elementary School with gifts both practical and fun.


Students identified are those who may not be getting a lot of presents during the holiday season. In addition, we collect food and give away boxes of food right before Christmas to people in need.


For more information about these efforts, please contact Roger Buck (
