Trinity Lutheran Church / History 

   Trinity Lutheran Church - Begins

   ------------------------------------------------

October 2014, 15 people met in Bible study; In November we moved to a larger facility at the American Legion in Rotonda West as our numbers were increasing; Pastor Earl Schmidt began leading us in Divine Worship.

   Moving Forward in Faith

   ---------------------------------

February 2015, the congregation began assessing options for a more permanent place of worship. Summer of 2015 an abandoned bank building and 3.6 acres of land was chosen as a viable future home.  Plans and specifications were prepared and a loan application submitted for financing.

   Trinity Lutheran Church - Name

   ----------------------------------------------

January 2015, the name Trinity Lutheran Church of Southwest Florida (TLC) was chosen by the congregation.

A decision was made to seek a more permanent home for our growing congregation;  a building committee was formed and planning for a new church home began.
