     I began my call at Trinity on March 1, 2016 and I am excited to be a part of this exciting vibrant community. Together, we seek to serve God and our neighbors in new and exciting ways. I love to lead worship and teach about how our faith is a part of our lives every day. Mostly, I want everyone to encounter God in ways that are life-giving.
     In addition to my service to Trinity, I also serve as a chaplain in the United States Navy, Reserve Component. Through this ministry I have the opportunity to reach many who need to hear about God's love and grace. I am currently assigned to the 25th Marine Regiment, USMC, headquartered at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. 
     I have recently returned from a mobilization to Germany where I worked with sailors who were rerturning home after spending time in Africa and the Middle East. I found the work very rewarding but am glad to be back in Taneytown.
     I am blessed by a family who has supported me in my ministry. My wife, Laurel, and I have been married for (almost) 25 years and have two children, Cole and Sydney.
     Please contact me HERE if you have any questions!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Cris Frigm

Having taken on the role of Office Administrator in May of 2016, I thoroughly enjoy working at Trinity and am excited about what lies ahead for the congregation! I have a background in office work having worked at law firms and a consulting firm in Washington, DC, as well as various non-profits here in Carroll County.

Currently, I am also the owner of "Events by Lexi," a corporate, social, and wedding planning and coordination company, and have worked with many couples in the Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia areas, making sure they have a fabulous start to their "happily ever after."

‚ÄčOriginally, from Northern Wisconsin, I moved to Northern Virginia right after college. I met my husband there, and we moved to Westminster in 1995, when he accepted the call to be the pastor at St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church in Westminster. We love it here! We have two daughters, Creason and Chamberlyn, and gained a son-in-law when Creason married Caleb in June 2021.
