Giving to Trinity

Trinity Lutheran Church has established an online method for our congregation members and other community benefactors to provide gifts or offerings to the church and its various ministries. It also affords you a way to support our mission during the suspension of regular worship services due to the stay-at-home guidance.

More Information

We have started worshiping again at our normal worship times with new protocols. Please call to make a reservation (815-963-4446). The wearing of facemasks is asked of everyone and remember to social distance. You can still find us on Sunday mornings (or whenever you feel like worshiping) on our website, Facebook and YouTube.

Regular Worship Times

8:30am Traditional Service

10:00am Family Service and Sunday School

Trinity Lutheran offers two worship times on Sunday mornings. For certain holidays, we may conduct a single special service or change the worship times for those occasions.
