Hope is an essential characteristic of the faith. Followers of Christ live in hope for today and for the future. Our confidence comes from the Lord who came to us in the form of a helpless infant. God set aside his power and divinity and joined humanity in our fragile flesh. Our hope is in Emmanuel: God with us.

Trinity Lutheran Church was established in March 28, 1920 (Palm Sunday) when some of the members of St. Peter Lutheran Church on Sandhill Road wanted a church “in town.” At the time the two parishes were served by the same Pastor; that practice continued for many years.
In 1920 and still today, this congregation abides by a common confession:
“We the members of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church believe and confess that the Bible (ie. the Canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments) is the revealed Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and the only infallible authority, source, rule and guide in all matters of faith and practice. To this Word we humbly submit ourselves in all things.”
