Trinity Lutheran Church began as a congregation of 42 members in 1949, and has been in ministry for 75 years. With our recent move to Flossmoor, IL, from Park Forest, we are open to the Spirit's calling as we live according to our signature prayer:
Gracious God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
