A National Historic Landmark Church

A National Historic Landmark Church

you are welcomed!

As members of the body of Christ, centered on Word and Sacrament, God’s people at Trinity in Milwaukee gather to joyfully receive our Lord’s gifts and live out His love in this community. For nearly 175 years, the church has served as a “light on the hill” and a refuge for many in the city. Grounded in the Word of God and boldly confessing the faith as outlined in the Book of Concord, we bear witness to God’s love for the world, show mercy to others, and rejoice in our life together in Christ. Trinity’s history is steeped in the ancient liturgy of the Christian Church that has sustained God’s people in the true faith for thousands of years. 

Worship

The Divine Service is celebrated every Sunday at 10:00am, as our Lord Jesus offers His gifts of Word and Sacrament weekly. Our experience of God’s service to us is enhanced through rich Lutheran hymnody that is often accompanied by choral music, string instruments, and hand chimes, all designed to serve the proclamation of God’s Word. 

Fellowship

Flowing from our unity in the Divine Service, the people of Trinity come together for fellowship through events like coffee hour after church, meals together, and youth-sponsored fundraisers. Our church also hosts concerts, recitals, and an annual Workshop for Church Musicians, all to offer more opportunities to gather and enjoy God’s gift of music to His glory. Fellowship at Trinity extends beyond the walls of the sanctuary and into the lives of each member, living out our lives as a community that cares for and loves one another as Christ first loved us. 

Christian Education

Trinity is committed to helping families learn and grow in faith through Bible study and Sunday School, offered each Sunday at 9:00am. These classes provide opportunities for members and visitors to ask questions about the Christian faith and to explore the depths and truths of God’s Word. It is our joy to equip parents and grandparents to nurture their children’s faith through Scripture, catechism, and prayer, engaging their young hearts and minds to grow in love for Christ.

A Landmark of Faith

Since 1878, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church has been a beacon of the Gospel of Christ in our beloved city of Milwaukee. With its soaring steeples, ornate interior, and grand bell tower, Trinity is more than just a landmark in the city, but a worthy and faithful place for God’s people to gather and worship. From supporting Lutheran education to helping plant daughter congregations in the area, Trinity’s history is rich with the work of faithful, dedicated members who desire to receive and share God’s Word in this community and beyond.

More about us

Trinity is a Confessional, Liturgical, caring member congregation of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. We believe, teach and confess Christ and Him crucified, as we hold to Scripture’s inerrancy and timelessness. Our Divine Service uses the liturgy from The Lutheran Hymnal pg. 15, while singing the richest of hymns from both The Lutheran Hymnal (1941) and Lutheran Service Book (2006). Trinity offers faithful youth programs and activities focused on building unity and fellowship as members of the body of Christ. Trinity is conveniently located in Downtown Milwaukee with easy freeway access. We look forward to your visit!

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20
