Get Involved with Prison Book Ministry

Help improve the lives of men and women in prison and empty your over-crowded bookcases. Do two good things at once by taking part in our annual Prison Book Ministry drive!
In 2014 Holy Trinity shipped to libraries at Stateville Correctional Center for men in Joliet and Fox Valley Adult Transition Center for women in Aurora a total of 18 boxes of books--an estimated 630 books, weighing 540 pounds. This year we are adding as a recipient the hospice program at Dixon Correctional; for this site, uplifting fiction and nonfiction and inspirational books are appropriate.

Book Group Meeting

Eat, Drink. Read.
The next book group meeting will be Monday, April 27 at the home of Becky Sims, (1702 W Barry). We will not be discussing a book this month, so please come and bring your book ideas!

Baptism Seminar - May 6 + 7pm

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. Email Pastor Sevig for details and to RSVP.

+ Learn more about baptism at HTLC

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.
