Pastor James Markus
Pastor Jim Markus was a graduate of Concordia Seminary St. Louis in 1986 and placed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Waterbury, CT (were he vicared). He was then called to Mt. Olive Lutheran in Shelton WA from 1989 - 2004 before coming to Trinity.
He and his wife Elizabeth were married in 1982, two weeks before beginning seminary. They have enjoyed their 5 dogs over the years and travel to Norway, France and Israel. Pastor Jim is known as the “fastest Lutheran Pastor in Cottage Grove.”
The members of Trinity Lutheran Church make a commitment to worship, to study, to understand and to live God's Word and to assist others to do the same.
Each week we gather together....
to sing the praise of Jesus, the Christ, who was condemned, crucified and is risen from the dead that we might stand free and forgiven.
to celebrate His presence and power in Holy Communion
to hear words of grace and words of guidance in an anxious and troubled time.
Holy Communion is celebrated the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month.
Special Services are held on Wednesdays during Advent and Lent.
Our Congregation is the only Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove, Oregon and we are affiliated with LCMS.
