Baptism isn't a one-time event--it's for life! This seminar is offered several times a year for expectant parents, parents with newborns, those planning a baptism in the coming months, and parents or others who would like a refresher on the meaning and theology of baptism. All parents planning to have a newborn baptized are asked to attend this seminar at some point before the baptism of their firstborn child.

Topics of the seminar will include baptismal theology, the role of parents and sponsors, and scheduling a baptism.

Film Night August 7 at 4:30 pm

Join us on Sunday, August 7 at 4:30 p.m. at HTLakeview to watch and discuss the film Spotlight.
We will share a light meal and snacks.

From the New York Times Review: Directed by Tom McCarthy from a script he wrote with Josh Singer and based closely on recent history, “Spotlight” is a gripping detective story and a superlative newsroom drama, a solid procedural that tries to confront evil without sensationalism. Taking its name from the investigative team that began pursuing the sex-abuse story in 2001, the film focuses on both the human particulars and the larger political contours of the scandal and its uncovering.

  • My friends, behold the power of prayer. It may be new to some of us, like visiting a new place we’ve never been kind of awkward and clumsy, or it may be familiar to us like driving home to see family, but regardless of where we are, prayer is potent.

  • "Mommy, can I have some of Jesus too?" a toddler asked after the Christmas Eve service. The two quickly made their way to the front of the church to find me and asked if the little one could receive his first communion that night.

  • It’s never just one thing is it? And if it’s not one thing, it’s another. When we feel overwhelmed, it is usually because we are worried about many things. One we could handle.

  • All are welcome this day. All the feelings we carry. The sighs and prayers too deep for words. Our personal wounds as well. Worries about relationships, jobs, money, health, the future, our own peace of mind. Sometimes it’s all too much.

Greetings from Pastor Mueller

Holy Trinity is unlike the churches most of us grew up in. Because it is fluid and ever-changing, the congregation has a remarkable spirit of openness and vitality. Yes, we value our Lutheran heritage and the ancient roots of our liturgy, yet we delight in a faith that is ever new and infused with a message for the needs and concerns of our contemporary world. As somebody recently put it: Our faith is two thousand years old, but our thinking is not.
