Our Vision and Mission

Through God's Grace, Growing as God's Disciples

As baptized children of God, we are called and gathered: in Christ to worship, pray, study, and live in fellowship; with Christ to welcome, care for, and grow disciples; and through Christ, to serve and invite others to share in God's grace.

 

Statement of Welcome

In response to the call in Romans 15:7 "welcome one another therefore, as Christ has welcomed you for the glory of God," we believe that every person has worth as an individual and every person is entitled to dignity and respect.

We therefore publicly proclaim that:

  • We welcome people of any race, nationality, sexual orientation, age and physical ability into the membership of our church, and we encourage all people to share their faith, gifts and talents in worship, service, study and leadership;

  • We commit to remove all barriers that exclude people from full and active participation in our church; and

  • We will continually strive to be non-judgmental in our thoughts and actions and discourage judging others at every opportunity.

 

Brief History of Trinity Lutheran Church

In 1974, Trinity was organized under the leadership of Rev. Donald Hanberry after visiting approximately 5,000 homes door-to-door. The original charter was signed by 218 members.  At the time, Trinity was the largest organizing congregation of the Southeastern Synod of the Lutheran Church in America.   Rev. Hanberry served as pastor until 1987.

Today Trinity is served by Rev. Dale Sillik (1987) and Rev. Jill Henning (1995). Trinity established a Pre-school 25 years ago and expanded to include a "Before and After School" care program, TLC 4 Kids. Trinity has assisted in starting two other Gwinnett County churches; Christ the Lord in Lawrenceville and Community of Grace in Grayson. Trinity is a founding member of the Southeast Gwinnett Co-op and a member of the Lilburn Co-op ministries.

Trinity continues to grow and seek to be a community center, reaching out to our neighbors, celebrating almost 40 years of worship, fellowship, service and growth.
