What to Expect
We love visitors, and you are welcome and invited to join us for our services.
Every worship service, we try and make sure that you can hear both God’s Law and his Gospel, that is, his will for our lives and his love for us in Jesus. Our Sunday morning services at 8:00 am and 10:30 am are traditional, organ-led worship services (occasionally incorporating guitar or piano leadership), following the Lutheran liturgy. The order of worship, liturgy, and song lyrics are posted on the screen at the front of the church. In our worship, we want God’s Word to be heard, telling of his works done for us and for our salvation. Singing and telling of what God has done is to his greatest praise and glory. Whichever service you attend, at Trinity Lutheran, you’ll hear God’s Word and his will for your life, but especially, you’ll hear of his amazing love for you in Jesus.
What time does worship start?
Our traditional services begin at 8:00 am and 10:30 am on Sundays. Occasionally service time will change, such as Christmas and Easter. Additional services are also held during the seasons of Advent and Lent. – typically Wednesday morning at 10:00 am, and Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm, preceded by a family meal.
How do people dress?
God doesn’t care about your external appearance. Whether you like “Sunday best” or casual, you’re welcome.
What about my kids?
Bring them! While we encourage parents to do their best to remain in the sanctuary with their children, we realize there are times when it becomes difficult. We certainly do not want you to feel uncomfortable and so the children’s nursery is a great alternative when needed. You can still hear and see the service from the room. It is located just outside of the sanctuary. An usher will be happy to direct you.
Does Trinity offer Holy Communion at worship?
Yes, we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month at both services. We believe that the sacrament of Holy Communion is a gift of Christ to His Church. However, all who receive this gift must first examine themselves concerning matters of Biblical faith and Godly living. “A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.” 1 Corinthians 11:28 (NIV) Therefore, prior to celebrating Holy Communion, we ask that you prayerfully consider the following:
- Do I believe that I am a sinner without hope of eternal life except for God’s mercy offered through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ?
- Do I repent of my sins in thought, speech and behavior?
- Do I believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son and my personal Savior?
- Do I believe that Jesus Christ is personally and physically present in the sacrament of Holy Communion with His body and His blood?
- Do I desire by the power of the Holy Spirit and the instruction of God’s Word to live a life pleasing to Him
We believe your “Yes!” to these questions affirms a common faith with confirmed Lutheran Christians and is you invitation to the Lord’s Table of Holy Communion. We encourage non communing children to accompany their parents for a personal blessing.
