Capital Campaign

Refocus. Renew. Refresh.

Trinity Lutheran Church is a landmark in the city of Moorhead. The bell tower, golden cross and stained-glass windows stand as symbols for worshipping members who have called Trinity home for over 135 years. Throughout our history, Trinity has responded to both challenges and opportunities. Moved by God’s Spirit, ours is a heritage of risk taking and growth.
Building upon God’s blessing of our rich history at Trinity, we seek to carry out God’s calling in a new time with bold new initiatives. Our faithfulness and fruitfulness will be measured in many ways, both large and small.

Refocus. our vision

Our vision is centered upon our call to “be a light.”

As this light shines the good news of God’s love for all creation, it brightens the dark places, it inspires, it connects, it gives hope, and it touches those in need. God is calling Trinity Lutheran Church to shine the light of Christ into Downtown Moorhead and beyond.

 

There is hurt and brokenness in our community:

We are called to be a light.

There is a hunger for relationships and for places to belong:

We are called to be a light.

There is a disconnect between our faith and life in the world:

We are called to be a light.

There is a deep longing to express our gratitude for God’s love and grace:

We are called to be a light.

“What has come into being in Jesus was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness does not overcome it.” John 1:3b-5

Refresh. Our Facilities

TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH: 

CALLED TO BE A LIGHT…

  1. By providing a space that is open, illuminated, navigable, and hospitable.
  2. By providing a facility that is safe, efficient and secure.
  3. By modifying youth, education and music spaces to meet the needs of our ministries.
  4. By enhancing our worship spaces, and taking care to preserve those spaces as we respond to new worship opportunities.
  5. By securing an endowment to provide funding for ongoing facility maintenance, protecting our investment in the future.

Renew. OUR MINISTRIES

To our FAITH COMMUNITY:

  • By developing an environment in which members can connect with one another, build relationship, and seek deeper spiritual understanding.
  • By renaming all current small group ministries and encouraging the development of new Light Groups.

 

To Downtown MOORHEAD and WIDER COMMUNITY:

  • By nurturing a culture of welcome that invites the community into our mission. We currently host 17 organizations and a refreshed facility will allow us to increase this number.
  • By responding to the critical need for infant care and expanding our preschool services to the community.
  • By developing the outreach of our Lost and Found Ministry to better address the reality of addiction in our community.
  • By expanding opportunities for members to engage in ministry within our community, celebrating and recognizing where our members are already engaged while lifting up and encouraging similar opportunities.

 

To our WORLD and the WIDER CHURCH:

  • By enhancing our global outreach. From Haiti to India, from long-term missionaries to Young Adults in Global Mission, from Lutheran Social Services to World Hunger, we are at our best as a congregation when we extend our resources to meet the needs of our global mission partners.

Trinity Lutheran Church has, and continues to make a difference in our local community and in the world. In addition to our number one resource, our people, we must also consider our second most important resource: Our facility.

Our Future

Building upon God’s blessing of our rich history at Trinity, we seek to carry out God’s calling in a new time with bold new initiatives. Our faithfulness and fruitfulness will be measured in many ways, both large and small. We will continue to cast a wide net, but success will also be measured one individual at a time: one recovering addict; one youth moved by great ministry; one new person finding a place in our community. As Trinity Lutheran Church we will answer our call to

 BE A LIGHT.

These images and plans will be updated as new information becomes available. Thank you to Jim Cole for his expertise and renderings.
