Our Services

What are services like?
8:00 am Worship Service At our 8:00 service we celebrate the great tradition of liturgical worship with Holy Communion each week. We print the entire order of worship in the “worship folder”, and the hymns can be found in the Lutheran Service Book in the pew. If you become confused, ask someone next to you for assistance. They will be happy to help! 10:30 am Worship Service This service is more casual in nature and features a blend of contemporary music and traditional hymns of praise. This entire order of service is also in a “worship folder”. Every 5th Sunday is a contemporary service which features innovative multi-media, our praise band, and the same Christ-centered message from our Pastor or Vicar. Monday Night and Mid-Week Opportunities If you miss church on Sunday, please join us for Monday Night Praise at 6:30 pm. This service features contemporary music, praise band and a message from the Pastor or Vicar. Throughout the week, you’ll find men’s and women’s Bible studies, choir rehearsals, Boy and Girl Scout meetings and other activities taking place at Trinity. Check out the calendar so you don’t miss out! Find out more about mid-week opportunities at Trinity!
