We are a church so old and
so new…

Trinity Lutheran Congregation is the only remaining Christian congregation located in Cedar-Riverside, a central Minneapolis community of more than 7,500 people. Trinity is originally a Norwegian immigrant Lutheran church, with roots in the Lutheran Free Church. Our theology is solidly Lutheran. Our new immigrant members are largely from Mekane Yesus, the Lutheran Church in Ethiopia.

Trinity is a church without walls.

In 1966 Trinity lost its building to Interstate 94 construction. The mission-minded congregation voted to use its resources in active outreach to the Cedar-Riverside community rather than investing in a new church building. The lack of conventional church walls frees us to tear down walls that can separate us from effective service to God and each other.

But we do need a few practical walls. We worship in the Augsburg College chapel at the corner of Riverside and 22nd Avenue in Minneapolis (get directions). Our office is at the corner of Riverside and 20th Avenue.



As Christ’s presence in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood and the Church Without Walls, Trinity is crossing many barriers as the Body of Christ, especially those of language, country of origin, tribe and skin color.

As part of our efforts to transform our faith community, Trinity called Alemseged Hagos as Associate Pastor in 2004. Since then we have welcomed more than 35 members from East Africa, primarily Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Trinity is a rich place for learning about other cultures and how to be together as Christ’s Body in the midst of diversity. Learn more about us by browsing our Web site or reading our monthly newsletter. (February 25th Issue)
