Who We Are
Worship at Trinity is traditional and liturgical
At Trinity, you will find a steady liturgy for an unsteady world - an ancient faith for today's people. The heart of our life is devotion to the Word of God and frequent Communion.
The Church from the beginning has worshiped liturgically. The Lord Himself prescribed the liturgy of the tabernacle. In the book of Acts, the first Christians in Jerusalem are described as “dedicated to the doctrine of the Apostles, the communion of the breaking of the bread, and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). The early Christians combined the service of the Jewish synagogue (three Scripture readings, Psalms, sermon, and prayers) with the Lord’s Supper. This became the basis of the Divine Service, which has two parts, the service of the Word (three Scripture readings, Psalms, sermon, and prayers) and the service of the Sacrament (thanksgiving, Lord’s Prayer, and Holy Communion).
The Lutheran Reformers were not modernizers seeking to create a new church. They wanted to continue in the greater tradition of the Church with the liturgy cleansed from all false teaching. Lutherans rejoice in our continuity with the Church from the apostolic age and the faith the Church fathers passed down.
At Trinity, we celebrate the Holy Communion every first, third and fifth Sundays and on other festivals, according to the liturgical settings found in Lutheran Service Book.
We also offer seasonal evening services in Advent and Lent to further Christian devotion.
