    Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church of Owatonna, Minnesota!  We are an ELCA congregation of 4,100+ Christ followers of all ages living out our mission statement, “A Community of Believers Growing Disciples for Christ.”  We are  firmly committed to six marks of discipleship:

    Reading scripture

    Praying daily

    Worshiping weekly

    Building spiritual friendships

    Serving others, and

    Giving generously
