Trinity Lutheran Church was founded in 1989 as a daughter
congregation of Mt. Pisgah Lutheran Church, Hendersonville, thus giving the
Missouri Synod a presence in Polk County, North Carolina near the South
Carolina line. A leading retirement area in the United States, we are
committed to people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds.
For many years the flock of Trinity met in the Seventh Day Adventist Church
building on highway 108 in Lynn until it purchased a former fish camp along
the river in the Pacolet Valley. The building was transformed wonderfully
into a sanctuary with an office and several small meeting rooms. In 2006, an
addition that seats about 70 people was built on for parish activities. The
park-like setting is a perfect resting place for all travelers whenever they
pass through the area. Picnic tables are available beside the river.
In addition to the eternal welfare of souls, we are also concerned with aid
to the needy. We currently support Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry of
Columbus, which gives generous help both to local folks and people passing
through the area who find themselves in need.
Trinity Lutheran Church is a member congregation of The Lutheran Church -
Missouri Synod, belonging to the Southeastern District. It exists to spread
Godís kingdom by the preaching of His Word and administration of His
Sacraments; to demonstrate Jesusí love and compassion to the needy and
downtrodden with physical and spiritual help; to build one another up in
faith and love; and to shine forth with the truth of the Gospel as clearly
taught in the confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
