About Worship

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 the sound of musicians with guitars, a keyboard, and a drum set perform a microphone sound check. When the electronic countdown board reaches zero, the worship band launches into a set heartfelt song praising God. Each song 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.

NEW SERIES "WELCOME"

Christmas can sometimes seem like a rat race with all of the hectic last-minute shopping in crowded malls struggling to find the perfect gift. We spend time decorating the house and wrapping presents after presents. Sometimes we even prepare for the family to come and take over the house. It’s easy to get lost in the busyness of Christmas. In all this chaos, how do we prepare to welcome Jesus?


Join us this Christmas season (November 28 - December 26) to learn more about what we can do to get ready for the arrival of Jesus into our lives just as we welcome a guest into our home.

  • jARROD wADE

    "I started coming to Trinity when I was just a baby. As I grew up and went through everyday teenage struggles, I fell away from the church and God. My sister introduced me to the Youth Director, Matt Hull, and the youth group, who welcomed me with open arms. Discovering the youth group saved me and gave me the support system to grow in my faith and as a person. My youth experiences, such as attending Oakwood at Blue Lake Camp and truly seeing Jesus move through the people and chapel, reaffirmed my decision to stay with Trinity and encouraged me to serve as I have grown up. I am currently a small group leader and mentor for Trinity Student Ministries. Trinity is my home away from home. It is more than a church, it's a family that will rally around you during the good and bad times. I can't imagine being anywhere else." 

  • The Searles

    "When Tyler and I first moved to Fort Walton Beach, FL, we visited nearly every church in town. None of them felt quite right to us until we came to Trinity! Wayne and Susan Kuhn welcomed us and introduced us to another couple our age. We received such a warm welcome that we immediately felt at home at Trinity. We were asked to be ushers, which was a great way to meet people. Our family has grown up with Trinity over the past 16 years, and we are so thankful for how Trinity has impacted us through worship, youth and children's ministries, friends, and fellowship. I grew up in church and accepted Christ at a young age. I am so happy to have found a church home for our family so that kids can have that same experience."

    -Jami Searle (Kellan, Kate, & Tyler)
