Welcome and Welcome Back!
Was your introduction to Trinity through an online service? You should know there’s really no substitute for worshiping God with body and spirit and in community, surrounded by his people. We are back to gathering for worship twice each Sunday, live, in-person and without restrictions. You are free to wear a mask if you prefer and we happily recognize your reasons for doing so are your own. We welcome you to join us and trust you’ll find us to be a warm, hospitable and joyful group of people reflecting all ages and stages of life. We look forward to meeting you. Here’s a brief description of what you can expect as you prepare to join us:
Our main worship space is our Auditorium and we continue to provide a live-streamed version of this service to be viewed at home and around the world. If you or your little ones are still adjusting to being around people you may prefer to gather in our Social Hall where you can view the service by live-feed and where there is plenty of room.
Our services are paperless and we do not pass an offering plate. You can access the morning’s order of worship through our website or you can capture it through a QR code you’ll find on the menu board just outside the main doors to our Auditorium. We use a video projector to display all music and the readings you need to know and they are easily visible from any part of our Auditorium. Our pastors and worship leaders give simple cues from the pulpit so everyone knows when to stand and sit.
If you are just beginning to venture out in public you may want to make our Sunday evening service your introduction to Trinity since there’s a little more room to move around. This service is live but not live-streamed. The sermon (only) is recorded and is posted on our website Sunday evening. We do this because during this service we take time to solicit specific prayer requests and items for praise. In encouraging shared prayer requests we want to protect the privacy of those who offer them and the identities of those for whom we pray. As with the morning service you are welcome to stay behind to make and meet new friends.
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. Someone will greet you at our main entrance, the doors nearest the rear parking lot. 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.
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 order of worship. Our services are led by one of our pastors, a 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 in another church we welcome you to join with us in this holy meal. The bread we provide is gluten-free and we offer a choice of wine or grape juice. We invite participants to come to the front of the room to take individual servings before returning to their seats at which time we eat and drink together.
Each Sunday 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 guest, to give. If you do wish to give out of gratitude to God and to support our ministries you will find offering plates at the back door of the Auditorium or you may use our online giving option.
If you have small children and prefer to worship together as a family we encourage you to do so! We also recognize that small children might find it challenging to sit for a whole service. If you or they need a break or if you are concerned that they are disrupting the worship of those sitting near you may wish to take them to either the Social Hall or to Rooms 110/112 on the lower level. You will be able to watch the service live and your children will have the freedom to squirm. Feel free to break out the books and toys.
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 business-casual and you will not be judged for what you wear.
Once again, welcome. If you still have questions about what to expect feel free to call the office and someone will be glad to speak with you directly.
