Worship services at Trinity typically last about an hour and include singing, prayer, scripture readings, a sermon, and Communion.
6:00 p.m. Saturday Night Service:
Our 6:00 p.m. service includes timeless hymns played on an incredible pipe organ which are interwoven with the traditional Lutheran liturgy. The chancel choir adds to the worship experience once a month. You may come early to join us for a Bible study at 5:00 p.m. which is held in the lower level.
9:30 a.m. Sunday Morning Service
Our 9:30 a.m. modern service includes a mix of modern and traditional songs led by a band and vocalists. The liturgy has modern elements and kids are invited to participate. Nursery is provided. We invite you to stay after the service to join us for Fellowship and Faith where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, a light breakfast and conversation meant to build faith and community. September - May Kids gather together during this time for crafts, music and an object lesson that focuses on the verse of the day.
WHAT TO EXPECT
What’s a service like?
All services include singing, corporate Confession (admitting to God we need forgiveness), and Absolution (forgiveness through our belief in Christ’s death on the Cross), Scripture readings, the sermon (spoken message from the pastor), the Creed (statement of what we believe as the Christian church) and Holy Communion. The words and songs are projected on the front walls to make it easy for you to follow along.
What’s the music like?
During the Saturday 6:00 p.m. service we sing hymns played on the pipe organ and sometimes the choir sings. We follow the liturgy from the hymnal. The 9:30 a.m. Sunday service is led by a worship team and usually includes a mixture of piano, acoustic guitar, strings, percussion and vocals.
How do people dress?
People wear everything from their favorite team’s shirt to sundresses. In general, the Saturday traditional service leans more towards busingess casual end of the spectrum, whereas the Sunday crowd embraces more casual wear.
What about my kids?
Bring them! We love them! At Trinity we welcome kids in the service but there are also locations to step out with your children if necessary. Our church body feels like a family where the parents, young professionals and surrogate grandparents alike get to know the kids and enjoy their energy. During the Sunday services, childcare is available if needed.
Can I take Communion?
If you are a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod or hold the belief that the Lord's body and blood are present in, with, and under the bread and wine, you are welcome to join us in communion. Our Lord invites to His table those who trust in His words, repent of all sin, and offer forgiveness and love to others just as He forgives and loves us.
If our beliefs are new or unfamiliar to you, we invite you to join us at the altar and cross your arms over your chest to indicate you will be receiving a blessing rather than receiving communion today. If you want to learn more about Holy Communion our pastor would love to speak with you and help you prepare for Holy Communion in the future. We offer First Communion for classes for students in Fifth Grade and private and group preparation for teens and adults.
Where do I park?
We have lots of parking options. There is a parking lot on the east side of the church and a municipal parking lot on the west side of the church. You may also park along the street and across the street in the Y Center parking lot. On Saturday nights and weekends the parking is free in the municipal lot.
Where do I enter for worship?
We have two entrances for you to enter. On the west side we have a ramp to enter through the glass doors, once inside the ramp continues up to the gathering area outside of the sanctuary. On the south side you can enter through the red doors and either walk up two sections of 8 steps to the gathering area or ride on the lift chair.
