We attend services at Trinity every time we are in Detroit (we live out of state and have a condo downtown). We love it, the architecture, the service, the music, the communion. The pastoral staff is very welcoming

I have been there for Detroit Lutheran singers concerts. At Christmas time there are 100s of decorated doll houses all around. An attractive church.
