History

From its inception in 1904, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and its dynamic congregation has been a place of deeply-rooted Christian worship and a leader at the forefront of various issues concerning Longfellow, surrounding neighborhoods, the city, and the world. Holy Trinity continues to be committed to these communities today.  South Minneapolis and Holy Trinity are both gaining diversity, which people of Holy Trinity believe provides greater vitality, strength and understanding.  As our motto states, “We welcome, with no exception, all people to the full life of this community of faith.”

While people come from different walks of life, the center of the congregation’s life is worship in the name of Jesus the Christ. Participation in Word and Sacrament enables people of God to transcend all which separates us from one another. Music is meaningful to the spiritual life of Holy Trinity members, therefore, the congregation incorporates a variety of traditions into the six liturgical settings rotated for Sunday worship.

The people of this congregation are committed to the positive future of south Minneapolis. This congregation recognizes, however, that maintaining and enhancing the quality of life within the community requires constant care. Therefore, Holy Trinity members are deeply involved in efforts contributing to community well-being, including collaboration with surrounding organizations and activities for children and adults alike to be involved.

You are happily invited to participate in the life of the Holy Trinity congregation! This is a place where it is possible for people to work through varied issues of faith and life. The faith that sustains the congregation’s life is God’s presence in the whole creation, most clearly revealed in Jesus the Christ and active through the Holy Spirit. Please join us and see what God is doing at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
