Central Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity
Central Lutheran is a vibrant, diverse, 200+ member urban Seattle congregations with dozens of preschool and school age children. We were the first, open and affirming church in the Synod. Central has had a 20 year relationship with the Community Lunch on Capitol Hill, a twice-weekly feeding program for low-income and homeless guests in Central's parish hall that began as a ministry of the church and is now run by a free-standing non-profit. Central also provides space to Lutheran Peace Fellowship and Seattle's Progressive Preschool.
We affirm with the apostle Paul that in Christ “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female” (Galatians 3:28). Christ has made us one.
As a community of God striving to be inclusive and open to diversity, we, the members of Central Lutheran Church, welcome all people to join us as we struggle to better understand the mysteries of God’s teaching and purposes for us. Although our world can seem to be a place of alienation and brokenness, Christ calls us to reconciliation and wholeness. We are challenged by Christ to care for, to love, to understand and to listen to each other, regardless of our race, age, gender, marital status, physical and mental abilities, sexual/affectional orientation, national origin, or economic status. We celebrate the special gifts that each has to bring!
