Trinity Lutheran construction to begin Construction.

Trinity Lutheran construction to begin Construction on the new Trinity Lutheran Church in Gothenburg is expected to start by the end of August.

The building site for the congregation’s first church is a five-acre plot just east of the Gothenburg Cemetery. Kearney-based Brown Church Development Group is the general contractor.

Trinity Lutheran Church was formed in Gothenburg in May of 2011 by area residents determined to gather a congregation and get the church up and running. The church is a new mission start of the North American Lutheran church (NALC) and Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC). Trinity Lutheran’s pastor is Rev. Jeff Cottingham.

Church leaders worked through the process of purchasing land for a building, and worked through the phases of the building process with Brown Church Development Group.

“Brown’s integrated process kept the family unity at Trinity Lutheran very strong,” Rev. Cottingham said. “We are confident that the design of our new building is ministry driven, and one that will serve our needs well.”

The congregation has been meeting in rented space from the Seventh Day Adventist Church and will continue to do so until their new facility is built.

Trinity Lutheran offers Sunday School for adults and children at 8:45 a.m. on Sundays, followed by worship at 10 a.m., and fellowship at 11:15 a.m. There are also a number of opportunities for Bible study each week.

A ground-breaking ceremony was held on June 1. “Our doors are always open and we welcome everyone in the community to come visit,” Rev. Cottingham said.
