Trinity Lutheran School Mission Statement

The mission of Trinity Lutheran School is to provide a Christ-­centered education to the families of our congregation. We also wish to have our school serve the members of our sister congregations, to reach out to the unchurched and to the members of other Christian churches.

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church Mission Statement

“As a family of believers, Trinity exists to help people know Jesus, the Savior, to grow in our relationship with him and live lives of joyful discipleship through worship, education, outreach and fellowship by the power of the Gospel in Word and Sacraments.”

What We Believe

From its founding in 1883, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, has believed, taught and confessed that:

  • the Bible is the inspired Word of God, his unchanging and inerrant message to people of all
  • there is only one God. He is three distinct and separate persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • God created man holy and without sin. Man, of his own free will, fell into sin and so brought sin on the whole human race
  • sin is in all people by nature and reveals itself in every transgression of God’s holy will by thought, word or deed
  • the wages of sin is death and damnation in hell, and eternal, agonizing separation from a holy and righteous God
  • God so loved the world that he sent his one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem the world
  • Jesus redeemed, that is, justified, the whole human race with his holy precious blood and with his innocent sufferings and death
  • this glorious fact is accepted by faith which is worked in the heart by the Holy Spirit through the Word, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
  • by faith alone in the atoning work of Christ we are heirs of the glories of heaven; while yet on earth we want to show our love for him who first loved us
  • at our death we shall inherit the full glories of everlasting life with Christ in heaven, where there shall be no pain or sorrow, and all tears shall be wiped from our eyes.

For more information about our church and beliefs, please feel free to call the church office at (715) 732­-9868 and speak to our Pastor.

What Is Trinity Lutheran School?

Trinity Lutheran School is a Lutheran elementary school offering a Christ-­centered curriculum for children in Preschool to Grade 8. Students must be age 3 or 4 by September 1 to begin preschool and age 5 by September 1 to begin Kindergarten. The school operates in conjunction with Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church.

What Religious Classes are Taught?

Students study various Old and New Testament Bible stories in Preschool-­Grade 6. Scripture passages related to a particular story are assigned to the students. Students in Grades 6­-8 also study the Catechism which explains the teachings of our church. All teachers also conduct a study of a variety of hymns from “Christian Worship”, the hymnal used in our church.

What Subject Matter Is Taught at Trinity?

Trinity offers instruction in Math (Including Algebra), Reading, English, Spelling, Science, Social Studies, Computers, Penmanship, Music, Art, Piano, and Physical Education. In addition, an intramural program is conducted for students in Grades 5­-8 and individual band lessons are offered to students in Grades 5-­8.

Does Trinity Offer Extracurricular Activities?

Yes, Trinity is a member of the Bay Area Lutheran League and the Great Lakes Christian Conference participating in soccer, volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, track and softball. The school also participates in a math and spelling meets as well as a forensics contest. Plays and musicals are also presented.

Is There a Dress Code?

Yes, although students do not have to wear uniforms, Trinity requires the students to dress neatly and in a God-­pleasing manner. Parents are asked to assume the responsibility for having their children wear appropriate clothing to school and to cooperate with the school in this area.

Is Bus Service Available?

Bus service is available to students who live in the school district of Marinette, but outside the city limits. Bus service is also available to students who live in the Peshtigo School District.

Do Trinity Students Participate in Standardized Testing?

Are there any special requirements for parents?

Because all students who enroll in Trinity must participate in the same religious program, we believe that parents who belong to a church whose teachings are not the same as ours should know what their children will be taught about the Lutheran faith. We require parents of such churches to attend a Bible information class conducted by the Pastor or Principal sometime during the first year that their child is enrolled in our school. Those families who wish to become members of Trinity are asked to take a more extensive adult confirmation class conducted by the Pastor.

Whom do we contact with more questions?

Please feel free to contact the school and ask for the principal (715-­732-­2956) or fill out the form below for an email response.
