Worship.....
 
The Church's first privilege and joy is to gather and worship God through Jesus Christ. Sunday Eucharists are the principle liturgies. Mid-Week Liturgies give further opportunity for the community to gather and share in worship, prayer, and fellowship. Other special mid-week liturgies also celebrate and observe the Festivals and Holy Days of the Church Year, such as Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil.
 

 

(Currently on Summer Schedule .... Sunday Eucharists at 8:30 am and 10:00 am .....

Sunday School, Adult Forum, and Wednesday Vespers will begin again in September)




Sunday Eucharists: 8:30 am & 11:00 am


Trinity gathers for worship every Sunday Morning. Corporate Confession and Absolution, reading and preaching from the Scriptures, the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion, prayers, hymns, and musical leadership from our choirs and musicians are part of each gathering.

 

 

Wednesday Evenings: 7:00 pm


... We gather every Wednesday evening (September through May) to sing Vespers, the ancient Prayer Office traditionally sung at sundown.  This contemplative liturgy gives thanks to God for the blessings of the day and seeks His calm and peace as we prepare for the rest of the night.  We read from the Scriptures and share a brief reflection on the texts.  The use of incense symbolizes the ascent of our prayers to heaven and adds to the serenity and solemnity of the gathering.
