In the year 1902, as the Village of Bergland came into existence, Mrs. Anna Stindt began operating the Bergland motel. She was instrumental in establishing Lutheran services and encouraging mission work to be done by Lutheran pastors in the area. In 1922, it was decided that a church building should be constructed, which was completed and ready for dedication in the next year. Several pastors served the gathered worshipers, in their early years. It was under the able leadership of Rev. Seeliger, however, that the assembly was ready to officially organize as Trinity Lutheran Church, in 1933. After many years of steady growth, and in response to the need to relocate the church building away from Highway M-28, the current building was constructed. Since its dedication, in 1967, God has granted His Word to be preached and sacraments to be given in this place even unto today. As a member of the Lutheran Churchâ€”Missouri Synod, our congregation holds to the Holy Scriptures as the inspired Word of God, the only rule and norm of our faith and life; and to the Lutheran Confessions as the true exposition of that Word. We are a liturgical church, enjoy singing the hymns of the faith from the Lutheran Service Book, and observe the historic festivals of the church year. Join us for worship; pull up a chair for lunch after the service; give thanks to God with us for the gifts He gives us in Jesus Christ our Lord!
