LOOKING TO JOIN BUT NOT OF LUTHERAN BACKGROUND?
If you are a brother or sister in Christ, are from a non-Lutheran Christian Church, and desire to join Trinity Saint James we welcome you in the name of Christ our Savior! We also desire to share with you Lutheranism’s unique and Scriptural presentation of the Christian Faith. Our New Member's class also outlines the teachings of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod as presented in Luther's Small Catechism. Contact the Church Office to speak to our pastor at 989-659-2506.
LOOKING TO JOIN, LUTHERAN, BUT NOT MISSOURI SYNOD?

LOOKING FOR A LC-MS CONGREGATION?
If you are currently a member of another Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregation and wish to transfer to Trinity Saint James it is up to you to notify your present congregation of your desire to transfer your membership. We also ask you to notify Trinity Saint James' Church Office by e-mail or phone of your intentions.
LOOKING TO JOIN BUT HAVE NOT ATTENDED CHURCH FOR A WHILE?
If you were once a Lutheran but haven’t attended church in a while, your membership in your former congregation may have been dropped. Come in and talk with our Pastor about how you can become active again in Christ’s Church, or contact the Church office.
