What are services like?
To first-time non-Episcopalian visitors, our services may seem like a lot of standing, kneeling, sitting and at the 10:00 service, singing. Feel free to participate as much or as little as you wish. You’ll be given an easy-to-follow bulletin so at any given point the service, you’ll know where we are. You are welcome to take communion (or Holy Eucharist, as we say). Or if you’d like to just sit quietly and take it all in, that’s okay, too. Click here to find out more about the services.
Must I identify myself as a newcomer?
We hope that you find us to be a friendly congregation—we want you to feel as comfortable as possible when you visit our services. While we would love a chance to meet you, you don’t have to identify yourself as a visitor. You can slip into a worship service and check us out without identifying yourself to anyone, if that is what you choose. You’ll have the opportunity during the services to fill out a welcome card, where you can give as little or as much information about yourself as you wish—and let us know of any prayer requests that you have. You can also stop by the welcome desk at the door for more information about the church and our ministries.
What’s available for my children?
Children are welcome here. We believe Trinity is enriched by the presence of children, and we invite you to let them see you participate in, and enjoy, the service. Children learn about church by worshiping with you.
During the service
Children’s activities including books, art supplies, and felt stories are located at the south entry of the church building. A soft space with toys and board books is available at the front of the church for babies and toddlers and their caregivers.
At the 10AM worship service, younger children (and their caregivers, if desired) are invited to process behind the cross just before the Gospel to enjoy Children’s Liturgy of the Word, an informal chapel service including songs, prayers, and sharing. Children are escorted back to the congregation during the announcements.
Need a break? Feel free to take your little one to walk around the church grounds. Please do return for Holy Eucharist, an opportunity for families to come together at God’s table. You are encouraged to bring your child to the altar rail for a blessing. Once a child desires to receive bread and wine, she or he is welcome to do so.
Nursery care is available Sunday mornings from 9:45 – 12:15, for infants and toddlers. Please ask an usher to point you in the right direction.
We offer Sunday School after the 10AM service. To learn more about Trinity’s Sunday School Programming click here.
