Worship Services

Two Services One Community in Christ

We recognize that people come from different backgrounds and that Christians worship Jesus Christ in different ways. At Trinity, we have two services that differ in style, but not in substance, seeking always to bring faith and daily life together in the Body of Christ.
Sunday 9:00 a.m. Praise Worship
The style of the praise worship service brings worshipers together using a less formal approach. The focus in this service is upon worshiping through contemporary Christian music led by Trinity’s praise band, applying God's Word to our lives through scripture reading and the sermon, and through personal and congregational prayers. A children’s message is offered, each Sunday.

Sunday 11:00 a.m. Evangelical Worship
People of various ages have expressed a need for meaningful rituals to feed heart and soul and glorify God. Our evangelical worship at Trinity strives to meet this need using any one of the many orders for worship from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal.

Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday to be fed by the presence of Christ among us. In this service we listen for God's voice speaking into our lives through the Holy Bible, the proclamation of God’s Word, the hymns we sing, in personal and congregational prayer and in greeting one another in the peace of Christ.

Jesus said, "Let the Children come"
While children of all ages are welcome in worship, if you desire to give your children a break from sitting in the pew, we have different options for different ages.
During Worship, you can take advantage of these activities for young children.

Trinity offers a staffed nursery where you can trust that your child will be watched in an enjoyable, safe environment. The target age group for the nursery is infants through age 4.

Activities for Children During Worship
For children who prefer, quiet bags and worship bulletins are available for them to pick up and take to their pew. The bags are filled with small toys and activities in case busy minds tend to wander during the service. Always included as part of both services is a children's message, which attempts to help even the youngest disciple to hear God's voice in their life.

Faith Formation (Sunday School) for all ages! (Program Year - Mid-September through Early June)
Because our Christian faith is a life long journey of spiritual growth and maturing as believers, from September through May, we offer a time to learn and to grow during the Sunday Faith Formation Hour - 9:55-10:55 a.m.; please come join the fun, the fellowship and the joy of coming to "know Christ" and God's will for our lives!
Both worship spaces are handicapped accessible.
