I'm New

Welcome From Our Pastors

When are your Service Times?

Coming to a new church for the first time can be intimidating, which is why we try to make it as welcoming as possible for you. Currently, our Sunday Morning Worship Service begins at 10am and runs about 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes. Our Adult Sunday School runs from September-May and begins after service at 11:30am. Join us after service for coffee and fellowship!

The fourth Sunday of each month we meet after worship for Birthday Sunday where we fellowship together, eat cake, and celebrate all the birthdays from that month! 

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to Pastor Mark or Pastor Alicia prior to attending or introduce yourself to us after service. We would love to meet you! 

Where should I park? What door should I enter?

Guests may park anywhere in our parking lot. Some people prefer to enter at the front of the church that faces Pulaski Road, but most enter on the backside of our building through the west-facing entrance because it is closer to the parking lot.

What should I wear?

We welcome you to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. For some folks at our church, that means dressing up, and for others, it means jeans and a t-shirt. Any style of dress is welcomed here. 

What’s there for my kids?

At Trinity we try to include our children in the entire life of the church, while also providing programming that fits their needs. For this reason, we start our services with our children (aged 4 and older) in service with us so that they can participate in the rhythms and liturgy of worship. After our Scripture readings (and before the sermon), the children will leave the sanctuary to explore the Bible together in Children’s Church. A couple times per month we also have Children’s Sermons in service before the children depart to Children’s Church. We offer worship bags with age-appropriate activities for our kids to use if they’d like during the service.

Every fourth Sunday of the month we have an intergenerational worship service in which the children worship with us the entire time and participate in our service through offering prayers, helping to lead liturgy, reading Scripture, ushering, and singing. 

We have a nursery room available for infants and toddlers for the duration of the worship service. The nursery is the classroom closest to the narthex/front entrance. If you need help finding it, please ask any one of our ushers or greeters! As well, you are welcome to keep your infant or toddler with you in the service if you prefer.

What are Sunday services like?

Trinity’s Sunday worship services blend traditional worship with some contemporary pieces. During the service we sing both hymns and contemporary worship songs and use both traditional and contemporary liturgy. For example, you may hear a written prayer read during one part of the service, and later hear an extemporaneous prayer. In the same service, you will hear both an organ and an electric bass, or guitars and jazz piano. We seek to embrace a variety of styles that speak to the diversity of ways in which people worship God. Although we have a more structured service, we keep a spirit of freedom and openness to the Holy Spirit. You are welcome to worship however feels most comfortable - by sitting or standing, silently meditating or clapping and shouting “Amen!” and anything in between. 

What’s going on throughout the week?

While we gather together on Sundays to worship and fellowship, we also have other activities happening throughout the week at our church. We house a wonderful preschool in our building, host a Senior Adult fellowship called Pryme Tymers twice a month, and offer a Bible Study on Tuesday mornings. Information on these and more can be found under the  “Connect” tab.

Communion

In the ECC and at Trinity we practice open communion, which means that anyone who believes in Jesus can participate. We leave what age a child should partake in communion up to the individual families. Wherever you are in your walk with Jesus, you are welcome at the Table.
