What to Expect

 

Welcome!

We hope you’ll find this website to be a helpful introduction to who we are and what we are about. The best way to learn about Trinity, however, is to join us for a morning (9:30 a.m.) or evening (6:00 p.m.) worship service. If you choose to visit Trinity you will find us to be a welcoming, friendly and joyful group of people reflecting all ages and every stage of life.

We invite you to stay for a bit after either service so that we can get to know you better. We offer coffee and refreshments after the morning service and we tend to linger after the evening service for extended times of conversation. We enjoy the relationships we have with each other but we also love to meet new people. We hope that your tour through our website will encourage you to visit us in person.

Location

Once you have found our location you will find ample parking behind the church building, handicapped parking along both sides of the building and a wheelchair ramp at the west entrance. If you enter through the rear parking lot door you will want to make your way to the upper level where you will be greeted by our ushers who will be able to direct you to the right places at the right times.

Worship

Our worship services are held in the auditorium, the largest room on the upper floor. Feel free to sit wherever you like. You will find that our worship services are predominantly traditional. Here you will find our most recent orders of worship. Our services are led by our pastor, pastoral intern or one of our ruling elders and we invite you to follow their leadership. They let us know when we should stand or sit and sing or pray. You will not be asked to stand to introduce yourself or to pray out loud. We sing hymns and a few select contemporary songs. Our singing is typically accompanied by organ, piano and occasionally other classical instruments. If you don’t know a song we’re singing you can simply follow along silently.

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper during the morning service on the first Sunday of each month. If you are trusting in Jesus Christ and have publicly confessed your faith in him at another church we welcome you to join with us in this holy meal.

Offering

During each service we receive an offering which is one way we express our gratitude to God for what he has done for us and given to us. We use these monies to maintain the ministries the Lord has given us to do. We do not expect or depend on you, as a visitor, to give. Feel free to pass the plate on to the next person in the pew.  Trinity Church also provides an online giving option for those who find that helpful. 

Children

If you have small children and prefer to worship together as a whole family we encourage you to do so. We recognize that small children might find it challenging to sit for a whole service and that, from time to time, they might even become disruptive to the point of interfering with the worship of those sitting near you. If this happens you may wish to take your child out to the foyer where there are speakers that allow you to hear the worship service. You could also take advantage of our safe, clean and well-staffed nursery located on the lower level.

Dress

If you are planning a visit you might be wondering if we have an unwritten dress code. Our members and friends arrive in anything from casual to semi-formal and you will not be judged for what you wear.
