  • The good news is that we can take action. There are many ways we as individuals and as a community reconcile the happenings of our neighbors. We are called to tell the good news and share what God has done for us as we cast out destructive ideologies.

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.
