Worship Service

The worship service begins at 10:30 and lasts for approximately an hour and 15 minutes.

Trinity is a Reconciling Congregation, welcoming all who wish to worship. Everyone is welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender expression. We also invite those with physical, mental, or memory challenges to be a part of our congregation.

We encourage all who worship with us to participate fully in the experience, through singing, praying, active listening, receiving communion, or any other aspect of the service.

Each year the worship committee choses a theme to focus and guide the worship experience.  You can learn more about this year's theme on the Mountains and Valleys page.

Children are welcome at our worship service and families are encouraged to worship together. We provide a table at the entrance to the sanctuary with books and other items for children to use during the service.

During the “Children’s Moment” all children are invited to join with the worship leader at the steps to the chancel area for stories about some aspect of life and faith in an age-appropriate (and often entertaining) way.

Information concerning our Nursery, and worship alternatives for children can be found on our Children’s Ministries page.

The ushers can direct you to the appropriate areas.

Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month. In the United Methodist tradition we practice an “open table,” which means all are welcome to participate in Communion, regardless of religious affiliation, age or church membership. 

Communion is served by intinction (taking a piece of bread and dipping it into the cup of grape juice). Communion is served at the front of the sanctuary or at the altar. If a person does not wish or is unable to come forward, alert an usher and it will be served in the pews. Trinity has gluten free bread and grape juice available. 

The sacrament of Christian baptism is most often held during the worship service. It can be administered to people of all ages: infants, children, youth or adults. Baptisms do have to be scheduled well ahead of time with one of the pastors.

Following the worship service all are invited to join the Fellowship Hour in Asbury Hall to greet old and new friends and learn about activities and upcoming opportunities.
