Trinity Lutheran Church values the gifts and wisdom of its senior members and offers specific Bible studies and outreach activities for this special group.


Seniors’ Bible Class

The Seniors’ Bible Class takes place every Tuesday morning at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary at our downtown church campus (220 S. Second St.). With a committed group of more than 30 attendees each week, comprised of both Trinity church members and visitors, this class offers a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and Bible study. The group, led by Pastor Hemenway, is currently studying The Great Divorce, by C.S. Lewis.
