Trinity offers two worship opportunities every weekend, Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and Sundays at 9:00 a.m. We also have Wednesday evening services during Advent (December) and Lent (six weeks leading up to Easter).
Some important components in every worship service are:
As you enter the sanctuary, you will be given a bulletin (order of service). Our services are easy to follow. The parts the pastor speaks and the parts the congregation speaks are clearly labeled.
As we gather together to hear God's Word, each service begins with a time to greet each other in fellowship. It's a great time to greet old friends and make new ones as well!
Each service includes three related readings from the Bible that form the basis for the Pastor's message.
Music is an important part of worship at Trinity. Songs are either written in the bulletin or found in the burgundy hymnal, officially titled Lutheran Service Book, behind the bench in front of you. Page numbers are indicated in the bulletin and we sing the whole song unless otherwise noted or announced.
Every service at Trinity includes a Message (Sermon) given by Pastor. While the messages vary from week to week, every Sunday you will hear the life-saving, life-transforming message that points to Jesus and tells what God has done and continues to do in our lives.
After the Message, all people (visitors and members) are invited to write their names on our fellowship pads located in the middle of each pew. On these sheets you are able to make known any request for a special call from the pastor or inquire about making Trinity your church home.
Also during this time, the Offering gives people a chance to respond to all that God provides. As all we have and all we are is from the Lord, it is a time to give back, so that His work in the church and community can continue and expand. It is our prayer that the service will be a blessing to you and if you are visiting Trinity, please consider the service our gift to you.
Each service includes a specific time for prayer. There are prayers that give thanks to God and prayers that ask for His help and guidance. Some are specific to people and situations and others are more general in nature. The Lord’s Prayer is included in every service.
The service ends with a parting blessing, final song and any special announcements. After the service our church-family can turn to greet one another, meeting new friends and catching up on whatever is going on with old friends. The congregation exits down the center aisle to greet and visit with the pastor and anyone else. Trinity has a welcome gift for first time visitors too.
Jesus says, "Let the little children come to me…for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these" (Luke 18:6). It is a wonderful thing to have kids of all ages join in worshipping our Lord! In order to best assist your worship with children:
Whatever you feel comfortable in! Some people wear “business casual”, others choose dresses and ties and others opt for blue jeans.
At times throughout the year, pastor offers an 8-week class that meets to study the basics of the Lutheran faith. For more details, call the church office to speak with pastor.
Trinity celebrates the Lord's Supper the first two weekends of each month. We kindly ask our guests who desire to receive communion to speak with pastor prior to the service. More details of "Preparing for Communion" are found in the bulletin on Communion Sundays. For additional information, see www.lcms.org.
Yes! Sunday School for children ages preschool-8th grade is offered Labor Day through Memorial Day at 10:15 a.m. Students gather for a snack downstairs in the fellowship hall before starting with some music and then heading off to their own classrooms.
Adult Bible study also meets at 10:15 a.m. upstairs in the sanctuary and additionally on Saturday evenings at 4:15 before worship.
For parents who have infants or toddlers, and who wish to teach Sunday School or attend adult Bible study, a staffed nursery is offered during the education hour.
