What to Expect at a Sunday Service
Although currently we are not worshiping in person, the typical Sunday worship service starts at 9:30 am. Ushers and greeters at the back of the church will provide you with a bulletin with the order of service (copies are also posted on the home page of this website) and can answer any questions. Large-print bulletins, large-print hymnals, and personal listening devices are available from the Ushers. Feel free to sit anywhere. Dress as you feel comfortable. You will find others dress in a range of styles - from casual jeans to business attire.
The worship service is a "blended" service mixing a traditional style of worship and hymns with more contemporary music and technology. Worship services vary throughout the year, so you will find something different happening each week. The order of worship includes prayer, music, Bible reading, and a sermon based on Scripture. The Sacraments, a time of personal response / offering, and a sharing of community concerns are also parts of our worship.
At Trinity, prayer may be spoken, sung, offered in silence, or enacted. Music is a response that engages the whole self in prayer. Also, song unites our congregation. We have a Director of Music Ministries, and many members of our congregation participate through music in our worship.
Reading, hearing, preaching, and confessing of the Word are central to our worship. At Trinity, worship is an activity of the common life of the people of God in which the care of the members for each other and for the quality of their life and ministry together expresses the reality of God's power to create and sustain community. As God is concerned for the events in daily life, so we, in worship, appropriately express concern for one another and for our ministry in the world.
If you are a parent, you will find a safe, fun environment for your children. Nursery is available for children under the age of 3. Children age 3 through Grade 4 participate in the first 15 minutes of the worship service and then attend an interactive, high-energy Children's Church program.
