About TOL
Trinity Old Lutheran Church is grounded in the words of Jesus.  

We are empowered by God’s amazing grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.  

We are continually being made “new” through the forgiveness of sins

and our belief that God is not finished with us yet. 

 

We gather for worship, service and fellowship.  

Through worship and fellowship, we are empowered to serve our neighbors as Jesus commanded.  We welcome and encourage new people to help us continue to be renewed by the Holy Spirit.
