Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church
Trinity Lutheran Church Edwardsville, IL – We welcome you to the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod affiliated church located in historic Edwardsville, IL. We are excited that you’ve visited us here, and we look forward to welcoming you in worship.
For over 100 years, we have been the Lutheran church serving the Edwardsville region. Our ministry has grown to include a day school as well as a daycare. Trinity Lutheran Church is a Christian community where a faith in Grace Alone, Faith Alone, and Scripture Alone unites us in our daily lives.
We invite you to worship with us each weekend as we celebrate our faith in the Risen Christ. We worship weekly on Saturdays at 5:30pm and Sundays at 8:00am and 10:30am. Sunday school and Bible Study is held Sunday mornings at 9:15am. All are welcome!
Traditional Services – Saturday 5:30pm, Sunday 8:00am
Our traditional worship services are held at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and 8:00 a.m. on Sunday Morning. Orders of worship from the Lutheran Service Book are generally followed. Music is provided by the pipe organ and all verses of hymns are sung from the hymnal. Anthems and Offertory Music are provided by one of the choirs – Men’s, Women’s, Mixed, School, Sunday School or Handbell. On special days the organ is joined by brass, woodwind or string instrumentalists. Acolytes and Pastors wear vestments and preach from the pulpit. Responses are generally sung and the congregation stands for the reading of the Gospel. The three-year readings schedule is used. The Lord’s Supper is served to groups at the rail in the front of the church. The common cups, as well as individual cups, are offered. Our service would be a familiar experience to members of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod from across the country.
Contemporary Service – Sunday 10:30am
Our contemporary worship service is held at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. Although the service does not follow a traditional order you will find the elements of the invocation, confession and forgiveness, prayer, offering, creeds, words of institution and benediction. Music is provided by the Celebration Band and Choir. The Band consists of two keyboardists, three guitarists, one bass guitarist and two percussionists. Four members of the choir lead the singing from the front of the church. The music includes newer compositions with a few older hymns added occasionally. The readings and sermon are the same as the traditional service. The Lord’s Supper is served in line at the front of the church. The common cup and individual cups are offered. The music is modern and the mood is less formal, but the message of law and gospel is clearly proclaimed.
