About Us

At Trinity Lutheran Church we are "Experiencing the Heart of God."

Founded in 1946, our church is located on South Otsego Ave. in Gaylord, MI. Our new pastor is Rev. Joe Polzin, and our secretary is Elaine Raschke. Members of Trinity strive to reach out with the love of Christ to the community and to each other. They join many different groups, including the Youth Group, Ladies Guild, Kut-Ups, Outreach, Stewardship, Sunday School, Council, Choir, LWML, and many different Bible study groups. We have three home Bible studies currently in progress. We also operate an after school tutoring program in our building for second and third graders.
Our vision is to grow a strong community of believers who are "experiencing the heart of God" with us as we are transformed by Christ to fufill our God-given purposes in Him. Our purpose is to worship the Lord Jesus, to bring our members into Christ-like maturity, and to equip them through Word and Sacrament for their mission and ministry. We go heart to heart into the world to live for Jesus and share His love, caring for one another, and bringing the lost into a relationship with Christ, by the working of the Holy Spirit. As a Stephen Ministry congregation, we minister to the needs of the people with Christian caregiving.  We hope to see you in our church soon!

Ways to Help at Trinity - Groceries
Save the labels from Campbell Soup products. Place them in the basket on a table in the Fellowship Hall. Once a year these are sent to the Detroit Lutheran Special Education Ministries, or to Bethesda at Watertown, WI. The school then redeems the labels for equipment used in their ministry.

Community Pantry Non-perishable foods can be placed in a basket in the Fellowship Hall.
The third Sunday of each month the foods are taken to the Community Food Pantry, where they are used to help the needy in our Gaylord/Otsego County area. Distribution is made through a community agency.
