Welcome to Trinity Lutheran in Bradenton, FL!

We are an inclusive congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America  located on the Gulf Coast in the heart of Bradenton, FL. We invite you to fully participate in the life of Trinity.

  • We strive together each day to live out our mission: Being neighbor + Sharing God’s transforming love.  We partner with community organizations to support their efforts to serve individuals and families throughout Manatee County.
  • Our building hosts many community interest activities.
  • We come together at Trinity and throughout the community to stir up the gift of faith in each other - individuals and families - people of all ages.
  • We provide multiple worship and learning opportunities for all God’s people.

Faith formation begins early!

In addition to our children, youth and families programming at the church, we have a preschool on our campus. Tree of Life Preschool offers affordable, Christian preschool and daycare for ages Infant to 5 years. We are a free, accredited VPK site, and a Certified School Readiness Provider. Please visit our Preschool page for more information.

We invite you to explore God’s great gift of faith with us!

If you are looking for a church home, we encourage you to be part of our ministry of love and service. Come to worship, a learning opportunity, or join us for a fun activity. "Try us on.”  Or contact one of our staff or the church office for more information.

Each Sunday morning people of all ages gather as a cross generational family of faith to learn and share. Our time together includes scripture, songs, Faith 5 sharing, and new activities. Invite friends and family to have their hearts filled and their joy charged up too.  Check out this short clip about GIFT!



We are disappointed, as are the Roma people of Hungary. However, due to the recent Federal government efforts affecting non-US citizens who are living and working in the US, as well as those travelling to and from this country, the length of time for eligible and qualified individuals to obtain visas and other immigration paperwork has been significantly lengthened. We are, therefore, postponing our June trip to Hungary until later this year. Once immigration agencies are able to understand and handle paperwork issues as effectively as they were previously, we will set another date.  

If you are interested in joining our group when we travel to Hungary later in 2017 or in 2018, please watch this website and other information we publish so you may take part if you are able.

Everyone welcome!  Thursdays, 6pm
