We invite you to join us for worship

WHETHER YOU ARE AN EPISCOPALIAN, a member of another Christian denomination, a seeker or not sure what you believe, Trinity welcomes you. We at Trinity believe we are all on a spiritual journey and that the church of Jesus Christ is called to welcome each of us wherever we are on this journey.

For the first time visitor, the liturgy may be exhilarating...or confusing. Services may involve standing, sitting, kneeling, sung or spoken responses, and other participatory elements that may provide a challenge for the first time visitor. However, liturgical worship can be compared with a dance: once you learn the steps, you come to appreciate the rhythm, and it becomes satisyfing to dance again and again as the music changes.

All baptized Christians - no matter age or denomination - are welcome to "receive communion". Episcopalians invite all baptized people to receive, not because we take the Eucharist lightly, but because we take our baptism so seriously. Visitors who are not baptized Christians are welcome to come forward during the Communion to receive a blessing from the priest.

CONFIRMATION CLASSES are offered each Fall. The seven week course is designed to prepare baptized teenagers, seventh grade and above, as well as baptized adults for confirmation. Inquirers are always welcome. The classes are an excellent way for inquirers, who are unsure about joining the Episcopal Church, to learn more about its history, customs, and traditions.

For persons that were baptized at an early age, as well as those baptized as adults by someone other than a Bishop, confirmation is a way for them to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and to receive the laying on of hands by a Bishop. Persons who have been confirmed by a Bishop of the Roman Catholic or Greek Orthodox Churches are received into the Episcopal Church by the Bishop.

THE COFFEE HOUR following the 10:30 Sunday morning service is a great opportunity to socialize and attend to church business. It is also the perfect place to introduce would-be members to their new parish. A sign up sheet is available for those interested in sharing in the responsibility of making the coffee, preparing food, and setting up the hall. By sharing the responsibility for this important task, each of us will contribute to our parish and lighten the load for all.
