When are your services?

We have several services times, each offering something different. 

  • Saturday at 5 p.m. (September-May) OR Monday at 7 p.m. (June-August)--These services are Informal, smaller in size, and blend hymns and contemporary music played on the piano and led by a small group of singers.
  • Sunday at  8 a.m. --This service is Traditional and liturgical in style and uses the organ along with traditional hymns. 
  • Sunday at 11 a.m.--This service blends aspects of traditional and contemporary worship and features our praise band and worship choir.

How do I know where to go and what to do when I arrive?
First, stop at our Welcome Center.  They’ll answer your questions and direct you to the worship center. You can also pick up a copy of the "Announcer," which serves as a weekly newsletter to the congregation with lots of information about what's happening at Trinity.

Where do I park?  
Our main parking lot is in the rear of the church. You can enter off of Harper on Farmcrest.  Follow the green signs and “overhang” to the church entrance.

How should I dress?
Comfortably!   We have people who dress in their “Sunday Best,”and people who come casually in jeans, t-shirts, khaki’s etc.  It’s up to you.  We’re glad to have you with us no matter how you’re dressed.

How long do the services last?
About 60 minutes, a little longer when there are baptisms, Holy Communion, or special events.

What is included in a worship service?
Songs, special music, Bible readings, prayers, a message from the pastor based on the Bible, video presentations, an offering, baptisms, Holy Communion, statements of faith, confession and forgiveness, and more are included in our worship services in diverse ways and at various times. The bulletin and screens within the sanctuary will guide you through the service.

What do I do with my children?
Children are welcome and encouraged to worship with their parents.
For children up to age 3, we have a professionally staffed nursery available.
For children age 4 to 8 we have children’s church available during the 11 a.m. service. (Children sit with their parents for a portion of the service and are escorted to our music room next to the worship center for an age-appropriate time of worship during the adult message. They return after the sermon is over.)

As a visitor, will I be introduced during the service?
No.  We want you to feel welcome and included at Trinity and we hope you’ll stop by our Welcome Center but we will not publicly put you “on the spot.” However, do introduce yourself to others during the welcome at the beginning of the service.

Is the Church handicapped Accessible?
Yes, there is an handicapped accessible entrance and bathroom near the handicapped parking.

Are there Special Accommodations for the Visually or Hearing impaired?
Yes.  You may ask an usher for a “hearing assistance” device or for a “large print” bulletin.  Songs and liturgy are also projected onto large screens for easier viewing.

Will I Be Required To Give An Offering?
No, we do not expect our guests to give an offering.  Our Ministry is supported by the gifts and offerings of our members.

May I receive Holy Communion?
Holy Communion is for baptized Christians who understand what the Bible teaches about this sacrament. Our worship bulletin contains our statement of faith.  If you’re in agreement with our teaching we welcome you to commune with us.  If not, or if you are unsure or have questions, please wait until you’ve had a chance to speak with one of our pastors.
