The Retirement of Pastor Joe

After being our shepherd for the past 38 years, Rev. Joseph Donovan III is retiring.  It’s hard to even imagine Trinity life without our “Pastor Joe.”   We are all very excited for this next chapter of his life, but he will leave a gaping hole behind him.  His last Sunday preaching at Trinity will be July 31st.   Read his last letter in our church newsletter by clicking here.



Vacation Bible School – A Success!

Trinity has finished up another successful Vacation Bible School program this past June with a record number of kids participating.  Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make the week great, especially Director, Laura Iager and to Tom and Lisa Piston who held a pool party for the kids. We are grateful to all the parents who brought their kids each evening and attended the ice cream social.  The kids had a great time and learned a lot.  We hope to see you for the next VBS – and anytime during the year.

REACH Cold Weather Shelter

The REACH Cold Weather Shelter, located in Hagerstown, is a critical resource for the homeless of our area.  The shelter opens in late October and gives a warm bed and food to those who otherwise would not have it.

Trinity will once again provide coverage at the shelter Dec. 20, 21 and 22.  We will cook the evening meal and volunteer with check-in, intake, laundry assistance, and hospitality.

Please join us in this very important outreach.  Contact Jane or Gene Walkley with questions or to volunteer.


Thank you for School Supply Donations!

A big thank you to all those who donated school supplies in our recent drive.  Your items will be combined with those from the other churches in our Lutheran Churches of South Washington County group, which sponsored the drive including, Trinity Boonsboro, Trinity Sharpsburg, St. Matthews in Beaver Creek, St. Peter’s in Keedysville, and Mt. Zion in Rohrersville.  The items in the photo represent a fraction of the overall donations.

Donated supplies will go directly to the schools in our area to be distributed to any children who are in need.   Your ongoing support of our outreach initiatives help us make a difference in our community and allow us to serve as an instrument of God’s work among us.

– See What’s Happening at Trinity!


At Trinity, we seek to follow and to serve our Lord by serving others. We want people to discover the love of God and experience in Jesus’ presence among us. Please come worship with us and join our ministry.

Sincerely, Pastor Joe Donovan

Why Trinity?

We arrived as strangers in Boonsboro in 2009 and marvel at how our lives have been enriched by our affiliation with Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. Trinity is a Christian community that practices what Jesus taught: spreading the Gospel message of love and forgiveness, providing support and assistance to those in need, teaching our youth about God’s love and encouraging them to grow and develop spiritually. We relish our membership in a loving, supportive and welcoming church family and enjoy the company of so many new-found friends. How different our lives might be, had we not found Trinity.

Remember as a child, the little poem that used your hands to make the church and the steeple? I love opening the doors at 64 S. Main Street to see all of the people. Inside I find a community of folks who will encourage, challenge, love and support each other through peaks and perils. A relationship with Jesus Christ and faith practices have to really be a personal choice, a personal walk. That walk is much more the merrier when made in community. There are many styles of worship, denominations and traditions associated with Christianity, and I feel as though the environment at Trinity brings together the best for me and the best from me.

Kristy Smith Member, Trinity

I joined Trinity 35 years ago with my daughters, and we have been blessed with an awesome minister who leads worship and participates in many of our church activities such as youth fellowship, music ministries, Sunday School, and Bible study for all ages. Today, along with our grandchildren, we love being a part of such a caring church family and participating in outreach programs like Micah’s Backpack.

Jean McCammon Long-Time Member

We’ve been at Trinity for over 8 years and couldn’t be happier. I’ve felt Trinity is a great place for me to serve others and to utilize whatever talents and abilities God has given me. And, what a wonderful place to raise my children – they are truly loved here.
