What to Expect on Sunday

What to expect on Sunday

There’s a reason why you’re visiting this site.  There may be several.  But here’s the most important one - the Lord has led you here!  And why would He do that?  Because He wants you to experience the very best both in this life and in eternity.  That’s why He’s given us His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior!

In everything we say and do, we want you to see Jesus.  His grace.  His life-changing power.  His true and certain promises.  His forgiving love.

That’s really our sole purpose for being here.  Why don’t you come by and let us get to know you?  We’re not perfect people.  Not by a long shot.  But we are united and dependant on the perfect sacrifice that Jesus made on your and our behalf.  And that changes everything!

Art Hill, Senior Pastor

 

Order/Flow of Services

Our traditional services follow a liturgical structure.  There are Bible readings, prayers, chanted portions with spoken and sung responses.  There are printed orders-of-service and songs from a hymnal.  These portions are also tastefully projected on screens to help those less familiar with the service.  Music includes a pipe organ, handbells, choirs and the like.

Our Ignite contemporary service is more free-flowing.  There are Bible readings and prayers, but with more extended times of music.  The service flow is more casual.  The music is led by a worship team that includes guitars, drums, keyboard, and vocalists.  You can easily follow instructions and wording on the projection screens.  

Children

Children are welcome and encouraged to worship with their families.  Yeah, we know they talk and move around a lot, but that’s where they learn how worship works.  We’ll take kids wiggling in worship over no kids in worship any day.

At the same time, there may very well be times when you want to take advantage of our nursery care for children up through age 3.  Ushers can direct you to room 103 in our children’s ministry hallway.  It is available during all worship services (8:30 & 11:00) and the education hour (9:45).  Our nursery is staffed with trained, adult, child-care professionals.  After signing your child in, you will receive a pager which will vibrate if you need to return to the nursery for any reason.  

Bibles

In the contemporary service, you can pick up a Bible from the book cart that is in front of the door as you enter the gym.  In the sanctuary, Bibles can be found in the pew-back in front of you. 

Collection / Offering

As our guest, please don’t feel any obligation to give.  Your presence is gift enough.  Really.  The offering is for members and regular worshippers who want to help support our ministry efforts - both local and far away.  During this time, we do ask you to fill out an attendance card. 

Bible Classes and Sunday School during the Education Hour

At 9:45 am, there are classes for all ages from nursery to adults.  

Separate middle and high school classes meet at the Hunter House (the house on the south side of the Hunter Street entrance).  There are multiple adult classes.  The most popular class is in the traditional sanctuary.  Additionally, that is a chance to see and/or meet one of the pastors.  

Finding out more about Trinity or membership

About 3 times a year, the pastors teach an 8-week “New to Trinity” class.  It’s an overview of our church’s beliefs and our congregations particular emphases.  It’s also the best chance for the pastors to get to know you and for you to interact with them.  Check out more on our how to join page.
