"There is always hope:" First Sunday service after Trinity Lutheran church fire

NOW: “There is always hope:“ First Sunday service after Trinity Lutheran church fire


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Dozens of parishioners filled the auditorium at Milwaukee Area Technical College Sunday morning. 

“God's word is exactly what we needed. It lifts us up and gives us the hope we need," said Ed May, Pastor. 

It's the first Sunday since the devastating fire caused 17 million dollars in damage at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. Church board members met on Thursday and decided to have Sunday service at MATC. 

"The church is God's people and we are proving it. The church is God's people, not the building," said Christine Behnke, Director of Parish Education. 

After this Sunday, parishioners will meet at St. James Church at 833 W Wisconsin Avenue for the next six weeks.
