St. John's Lutheran Church

First Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in Utah

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Riverton, Utah, preaches the Word in the suburbs of Salt Lake City.

Situated between two mountain ranges in the Salt Lake Valley, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Riverton, Utah, has been growing and growing alongside Salt Lake City’s booming population. People are hungry for the Word of God, and they are finding their way to this former church plant.

Historically, there have not been many Lutherans in Utah — Utah is Mormon country, through and through. But in an effort to reach out to Mormons and also to meet the needs of Salt Lake City’s fast-growing southwest side, Grace Lutheran Church in Sandy, Utah, was encouraged to plant a daughter church nearly 20 years ago.
