If you have further questions about any of the services described below, or a service that may not be listed here, please email the appropriate individual listed in each description, or feel free to call the church office directly at 616.949.2510.

  • Baptism, one of the Lutheran Church’s two sacraments, is available to people of all ages who wish to affirm their faith and commitment to God in Christ Jesus — from infants to adults. Contact Pastor Bob Linstrom.

  • A columbarium is a structure with recesses in the walls to hold the urns of cremated loved ones. Trinity offers a columbarium for members of Trinity who would like to have a special setting for the urns of cremated loved ones. Trinity’s columbarium and surrounding garden is located on the balcony area outside the narthex, under the cross tower.

  • People who are homebound are very much a part of our church family. They, too, join in communion with God, and with all of us. Special kits of bread and wine are placed on the altar at church and blessed by the Words of Institution during our worship services. Volunteers bring these kits to our homebound members, read through a simple order of service, and share God’s gifts of body and blood.

  • If you have updates or changes on your address, phone number or email address, please call the church office.

  • If you or a loved one are hospitalized or ill, please notify Pastor Bob Linstrom, Pastor Kari Fast, or Faith Community Nurse Kristin Bradley, or call the church office so our staff can support you and include you in our prayers.

  • Through phone and email, members create a circle of strength by offering prayers for others in need. Have a prayer request or concern? Please contact the main office.
