Each Sunday we come together in thanksgiving. We sing God’s praises, and we hear God’s word through Scripture. A sermon helps us reflect on God’s story and our purpose. We pray for the world, the church and each other. At least twice a month we share the Eucharist – consecrated bread and wine which sustains us as Christ himself. We are then sent into the world to do God’s will throughout the week.
At Trinity, our main Sunday worship service is either Morning Prayer (led by a licensed lay minister) or Holy Eucharist (led by a priest). We often share Morning prayer on the first and third Sundays of the month and Holy Eucharist on the second and fourth Sundays.
Both services are built around praise and prayers that sometimes stretch back more than a thousand years. We ordinarily use the Book of Common Prayer, but we also use other authorized Episcopal Church liturgies with more inclusive language. The words we speak or sing are drawn heavily from scripture. They connect us to generations of believers across the world and across time, and they invite the congregation to participate in worship. If you’ve worshipped in the Roman Catholic or Lutheran traditions, you may find our Eucharistic liturgies familiar.
For either service, there will be a worship bulletin that contains all you need to follow along and participate to whatever extent you’re comfortable. Hymns and music can be found in the bulletin or in the hymn books in the pew rack in front of you.
Please join us for coffee hour in the Parish Hall after the worship service!
Masks are optional at Trinity right now, because the number and severity of cases in this area are comparatively low. A supply of N-95 masks is available at our welcome table, and anyone who would like to wear a mask is encouraged to do so. We continue to monitor COVID trends and public health recommendations in case we need to make different choices to protect the most vulnerable among us.
