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, 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 and 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, 8 p.m.

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 Committee 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 and Camp Restore in New Orleans.

Weekend Activities: The Campus Committee Board meets on the second Sunday of each month after worship. A lunch for the students is served on the fourth Sunday of the month. The students are encouraged to participate on the Campus Committee Board, and also volunteer to serve as LSF officers each year. The LSF group plans a monthly lock-in on a Friday evening with the middle and senior high youth of Trinity and their friends.
