Trinity Lutheran Church, Des Moines

Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church and Student Center. We are located on the northwest corner of 32nd and University—just a few blocks from Drake.

Lutheran Student Fellowship (LSF): Trinity has an active outreach to college students at Drake University, DMACC, AIB and Des Moines University. In 2010 a Lutheran Student Fellowship (LSF) student organization was established at Drake University. Students from DMACC and Des Moines University are more than welcome to be involved in this organization as well. LSF's mission is to foster spiritual growth through sound teaching & searching of the Holy Scriptures. Through such diligent work students will become better equipped to face the everyday challenges of college life. Combine this with faithful attendance of the Divine Service, where students receive God's Word & Sacraments, and they, God willing, will be led by the Holy Spirit to profess this wonderful Gospel truth throughout their campus life.

Bible Study:  Tuesdays, 9:00pm

Opportunities to Serve:   Students are encouraged to participate in the congregational life of their "church home away from home". Opportunities include: Teaching Sunday school, serving on the Campus Board, Singing in the choir, Playing instruments or participating in the Bell Choir, reading the Sunday lessons or ushering in worship, helping with church clean-up, attending fellowship events.

We endeavor to lead the Campus Students on a mission trip each year. Previous trips have been to Texas Underground, New Orleans hurricane clean-up, New York hurricane clean-up, Joplin, MO tornado relief, Skid Row in Los Angeles.

Weekend Activities: The Campus Board meets on the second Sunday of each month after worship and serves a lunch for the students on the last Sunday of each month. The students are encouraged to participate on the Board, and also volunteer serve as LSF officers each year. Students currently participate in the Bell Choir and the Adult Choir.  The Board also sponsors a Super Bowl Party each year for students and other activities are held periodically.
