Meet  Our Pastor

Welcome to Trinity!  

Trinity Lutheran Church is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and part of the Mid-South District which is located in Memphis.  Pastor Henning follows a host of pastors who have served the congregation since its formation in the late fall of 1899 with 14 members.  Rev. Christian F. Rittman was the first Pastor of the congregation serving from 1900-1906.  The congregation still worships in the sanctuary which was built beginning on

November 1, 1901 and dedicated to the glory of God on January 5, 1902.

Our Rich History

Lutheran families of Mena organized Trinity Lutheran Church in the fall of 1900. In the early days, services were held in both German and English. As the church grew, a white frame church was erected and dedicated to serve the needs of both the church and the Christian Day school. This white frame church building, which has stood at the corner of DeQueen and Oak streets since 1902, is well preserved and stately. It is the oldest church building still in use in the city of Mena today.
