About Our Congregation

Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church of Miles City, Montana. We are a congregation of approximately 425 souls. Our Holy Triune God has richly blessed us in many ways. Likewise, He calls us to be a blessing to others in our community and the world. 

Chief among our blessings is God's Word as revealed to us in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ and contained in the Old and New Testaments of The Holy Bible. We earnestly endeavor to allow this blessing of God's Word to permeate every facet of our corporate life together, as well as our service to God and our fellow human beings. That is an integral part of our mission statement and vision statement.

Feel free to peruse our website and learn more about us. Check out our confessional statements, worship opportunities, Christian education ministries, and congregational life. We would love to hear from you, or if you would like to have further information about any of our services or ministries, send us an e-mail or call us. We would love you to join us for Sunday worship and Bible class!

The peace and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you from Pastor Howard Schreibeis and our Miles City congregation members.
