Join Our Church

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church is a congregation of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS). Membership at Trinity Lutheran Church is based on your confession (agreement) with the teachings of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod as drawn from the Holy Scriptures and the Book of Concord (The Lutheran Confessions). There are four ways to become a member of Trinity.

1. Baptism

The first method is by baptism. Children who have received the Sacrament of Holy Baptism at Trinity Lutheran Church and have been placed under the spiritual care of this congregation shall be considered baptized members. Children who have been baptized by another Christian church through water and the Word in the name of the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and who personally or through their guardian, express the desire to be members of this congregation shall be considered baptized members.

2. Confirmation

The second method is confirmation (youth or adult). Baptized members of Trinity go through a three year period of instruction beginning in the sixth grade and they are confirmed at the end of eighth grade. The Rite of Confirmation for youth is one in which a young person confesses for themselves what their parents confessed for them at the time of their baptism. Adults who are not baptized and desire to become members would first take adult instruction classes, be baptized and then make a confession of faith in the Rite of Confirmation for adults.

3. Transfer

The third method is by transfer. This is when a member of another LCMS congregation who moves to this area requests a transfer of membership from their former congregation to Trinity Lutheran Church.

4. Profession of Faith

The fourth method is a profession of faith. This can happen one of two ways. When a baptized and confirmed adult from another Lutheran church body indicates that they believe what the LCMS teaches and they desire to become members of our church. Or baptized and confirmed adults who were once members of an LCMS congregation who have become inactive, and desire to be active members of the church once again.

Trinity offers an adult instruction class for all those who are beyond youth confirmation age (older than 8th grade) and are interested in church membership at Trinity. If you would like to learn more about The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, or would like to refresh your understanding of what we teach and believe as LCMS Christians, you are invited to come. Watch the newsletter, church bulletin and website for information on when Pastor will be teaching the class.

Trinity Lutheran Church - Orchard Farm MO

Trinity Lutheran Church - Orchard Farm MO has a group within the church known as "The Thrivent Advocates." This group reminds church members of their Action Teams, helps them come up with project ideas, educates members of their Thrivent Choice Dollars and more!

This past Friday night, they used a Thrivent Action Team to make freezer meals at The Dinner Bell in St. Peters, MO. The seed money covered the cost of the meals and the advocates assembled the meals and delivered them to congregants in the church going through hard times. They said it was a fun way to spend a Friday night and an easy way to help out fellow congregants!

How will you use your 2019 Thrivent Action Teams?
