Whether you're new to Trietsch or you've just never met the pastors, this is a great chance for you to ask them anything. On each date we'll start at 12:15 pm in the Family Life Center. Rev. Daniel Humbert will be present at every Lunch with the Pastors, and our Associate Pastors will join as much as they can. 

It's helpful to sign up in advance so that we can gift you with lunch, but walk-ins are welcome. We always order extra! We also offer childcare for children 8 weeks old to 10 years old. Please e-mail for more information.
