Sundays at Trinity

Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. We invite you to come just as your are to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our Sunday worship services. You can engage with others and find places for your whole family to connect. We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.


Let's Gather Together in Praise!

Traditional Worship

Traditional worship at Trinity keeps us in touch with the deepest roots of the Christian faith. We appreciate the traditional elements of worship and have pews, pulpits, choir lofts, robes for pastors and choirs, daylight streaming through the stained glass, the deep resonant sound of a pipe organ, and the classical piano. Voices led by the Chancel Choir lift high the praises of God. It has everything you'd expect in traditional worship.

Every Sunday is a structured combination of the use of traditional prayers and liturgy. It allows you to put yourself in a place where we can hear God's voice through song, traditional prayer, scripture reading, and sermon.

Contemporary Worship

Entering the Memorial Fellowship Hall, you are greeted by our worship band's sound with guitars, a keyboard, and a drum set to perform a sound check. When the electronic countdown board reaches zero, the worship band launches into a selected heartfelt song praising God. Each piece is meant to help you focus on your personal devotional experience and praise before the message.

Contemporary worship provides a mix of contemporary and traditional elements. If you love church traditions and a bit more pep in your music, contemporary is the perfect place for you.

Current Sermon Series

The Ripple Effect

October 17 - 31

We begin our yearly stewardship sermon series "The Ripple Effect" on October 17. For three Sundays during worship, we will reflect on how being stewards of faith, love, and hope impacts those around us. But what does it mean to be a steward? It simply means to manage what God entrusts to us, and God has entrusted much to us.

The Ripple Effect... the continuing and spreading results of a single event or action. We’ve all done it at some point in our life. You’ve taken a stone, and you’ve thrown it into a body of water, and you see the concentric circles that are rippling outwards from the center where the stone made an impact. That’s not the only effect that throw might have had. The sound of it going in may have scared a duck on the pond or the weight of it going down through the water, disturbing fish swimming there.

You have caused change through a single and simple act. In this upcoming sermon series (October 17 - 31), we’ll learn what it means to be stewards of what God entrusts to us: faith, love, and hope. We’ll understand how our actions with each of these can be used to impact others, the church, and the world.

    Centering Prayer is the practice of sitting silently with God while consenting to God’s presence and action in our lives. If you feel the desire to grow closer to God if you want to grow in your prayer life, and if you want to experience God’s peace that passes understanding even during the storms of life? Then, you may want to try centering prayer.

    If you are interested in learning about Centering Prayer, I invite you to join us in room C102 at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 9 for an introductory workshop. You will learn the basics of centering prayer, and we will practice this prayer together. Our goal is for all of us to grow in the discipline of prayer.
