Trinity Lutheran Church

In this place...

Teach, live,
and Share Christ's Love

Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church in Hovland, Minnesota.  Here at Trinity, God provides a beautiful worship space, building, and gardens.  This is a place for worship and gathering where the Sacred meets the everyday. Here we are taught by the Holy Spirit, strengthened to live Christ by who we are in families, workplace, stores, or over a simple cup of coffee with a friend.  We are continually encouraged by the Holy Spirit to open our doors further to provide a greater welcome, and to remember Jesus said, “whatever you have done for the have done for me” (Matthew 25:40).  

Strengthened by worship, Holy Communion, and a place of respite and rest, we also head out our thrown open doors to live Christ by widening our invitation to worship, faith, and community.

This Week at Trinity

Worship is central at Trinity!

Sunday Worship

Beginning Sunday, August 29, we moved worship outdoors to our worship area at the Trinity Trails Gathering Space. Follow the path from the parking area and church.  Worship begins at 9:00 a.m. This decision was made in response to the increase in the COVID-19 test positivity rate in the county.

The Trinity Congregation Council recommends that when inside the building at Trinity, you keep "a moose-apart" safe distance, and wear a face mask. This follows the increase locally in COVID-19 cases, and is out of desire to increase safety for those who cannot receive vaccinations, including children.

From Cook County Public Health and Human Services - August 6, 2021

Given that the State of Minnesota is considered an area of substantial transmission of COVID-19, the high volume of travel within the state, and the increasing rate of hospitalization statewide, Cook County Public Health strongly recommends wearing a mask in public, indoor settings regardless of a person’s vaccination status.  Mask use is a simple way to further reduce the chance of the virus spreading in our community, particularly among those who are not fully vaccinated. Outdoors, as well as indoors, keeping "a moose apart" is also recommended.
