Who is your pastor? We were in a pastoral vacancy from August 2018 to mid-March 2019. On Sunday, March 17, 2019, the Rev. John Preus accepted the divine call to serve our congregation. Pastor Preus’s installation will be in May. In the meantime, we continue to be served by the Rev. Marcus J. Baikie, associate pastor of Our Savior Lutheran Church, one of our sister congregations here in Cheyenne.

What do you believe? As a Lutheran congregation Trinity finds her identity in the proclamation of the catholic Christian faith: Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures and was raised to life for our justification. We believe that the prophetic and apostolic Scriptures (i.e. the Old and New Testaments) are the very Word of God written, divinely inspired and inerrant, and that they are the norm for Christian doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Our pastor and congregation have publicly subscribed to the Lutheran Confessions (i.e. the Book of Concord) because they are in complete agreement with the Scriptures and thus express “the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3). In accordance with this one faith, the Word of God is preached in its truth and purity at Trinity and the sacraments are rightly administered. For a summary of what we as Lutherans believe, please consult the Small Catechism of Dr. Martin Luther.
What is your worship practice? We joyfully retain the Lutheran liturgy at Trinity. The Divine Service and hymns are taken straight from the Lutheran Service Book (2006) with some supplementation from The Lutheran Hymnal (1941). The Lord’s Supper is celebrated every Sunday. Our school has daily chapel services which are open to the public: Matins (the morning prayer office) Monday through Thursday and Vespers (the evening prayer office) on Friday.
Do you practice closed communion? Yes. In accordance with Scripture, Trinity practices closed communion (cf. “An Explanation of Closed Communion”). Visitors who are not members of congregations in fellowship with Trinity are welcome to remain in the pew during the distribution of the Sacrament or come forward for a blessing with arms folded across the chest. The pastor would be glad to speak with you if you have additional questions about our communion practice.

I’ve heard that Trinity is a “classical school.” What does that mean? We’re so glad you asked. This article by our headmaster is a good place to start. See also the linked piece at the top: “The New Classical Schooling,” by Peter J. Leithart.
