Summer Outdoor Worship Services are held at Trinity Lutheran Church on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. between Memorial Day weekend in May through the end Labor Day Weekend (in lieu of Sunday School). It is a very casual service. Bring a lawn chair, or borrow a folding chair, and join us under the trees out back! (In inclement weather, we move indoors.) Fresh air will bring you closer to God's creation of nature, and will bring a breath of fresh air to your worship experience, as well as a fresh start to your new week.
50th Anniversary Events
As our year of celebrating 50 years of ministry here at TLC comes to an end, mark your calendar for these anniversary events.
Sunday, November 6 – Pastor Elton Richards will be our guest preacher. Pastor Richards served as Interim Pastor, 2001-02, while Pastor Ron and his family spent eleven months at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, KY. Pastor Richards and his wife, Anne, were active members of Trinity from September 23, 2001 to November 5, 2006.
Sunday, November 13 – Our Closing Celebration will be at 3:00 pm. Bishop Michael Rhyne will lead us and preside while Bishop Gregory Pile will serve as our preacher that day. Following the Celebration, we will have our annual Thanksgiving Dinner, beginning at 5:00 pm. A sign-up sheet is posted on the door to Fellowship Hall. Salads, sweet potatoes, and desserts are needed; turkey, filling, mashed potatoes and gravy will be provided. If you are willing to bake a turkey for the meal, please indicate that on the sign-up sheet as well.
$50K for the 50th Campaign
Have you heard about Trinity's "$50K for the 50th" Campaign? Trinity Lutheran Church of State College is celebrating its 50th anniversary from 2015-2016.
The Church Council initiated a campaign to help raise funds for fellowship hall - which served as the original sanctuary over 40 years ago. This section of our building needs new flooring, windows, central heating & A/C, and a few other tweaks. Changes will improve energy efficiency and viability as a year-round usable space for Trinity and Community members. Additionally, funds will cover replacement of the church's sign.
As of May 8, 2016 we have raised $20,000! We hope that family members of Trinity, past and present, will help contribute in some way, as we strive to raise "$50K for the 50th"! Special donation envelopes are available in the church pews. You can also support Trinity's campaign via PayPal - just click the Donate button below.
