Our Mission

We are a congregation who is concerned about growing in faith.

We are deeply rooted in the Scriptures and in the Merrill community.

We are branching outward with the love of Jesus into Merrill and the world.

We design our lives and ministries to enable the Holy Spirit to mature people in the image of Christ.

Join us for worship!

What should I expect?

You can expect to meet warm, friendly, and caring people. If you visit our church, you are sure to meet our pastor, Scott Gustafson and our Director of Christian Education, Devan Arntson.  Along with the rest of our church staff and community, they would love to welcome you to Trinity! Join us for a warm drink and a treat at Trinity Café on Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:30am and be welcomed as a part of our Trinity family.

If you visit our school, be sure to meet the school administrator, Kathy Yahr, and Karli Severt, administrative assistant.  They can answer all of your questions and give you a tour of our awesome educational facilities.

When should I arrive?

We recommend arriving a few minutes prior to the start of services. If you are at Trinity on a Sunday morning you’re welcome to grab a free coffee from the Trinity Café on your way into our service. Feel free to pull up under our covered awning to let anyone in your family or group have easy access to our main entrance before parking.

What’s a worship service experience like?

Our traditional services are held at 8:00am and 6:00pmon Sundays. These services are accompanied by organ, using hymnals, celebrating the traditions of the saints throughout the years. Our contemporary services are held at 10:30am on Sundays. These services feature a live praise band and singing team. Expect a relaxed and casual atmosphere.

What should I wear?

Please don’t worry about what to wear when you attend our worship services. Whether you prefer to wear something casual or more formal – we want you to be comfortable. We see a whole spectrum of attire in worship each week from blue jeans to suit pants.

What do you have for children and students?

Families with children are warmly welcome! We love to have children participate in worship and offer activity bags just outside the sanctuary doors for busy hands.

If you need to step out of the worship service with a child, there are chairs set up in the lobby (narthex) for adults and children, with speakers to hear the service. Please do not feel pressure to leave if your child acts up a little bit, however. We want children to learn how to worship with us!
