Trinity's Sunday Morning Worship
We’re so glad you found your way to Trinity. We extend a special welcome to the young, the old, the extravagantly wealthy, the ones struggling to get by. We especially welcome transgender folks, cisgender folks, genderqueer folks, gay folks, straight folks, bi-folks, poly folks. We love quiet children, rambunctious children, curious children, polite teenagers, sullen teenagers, excited teenagers. We extend a special welcome to those who have always been in church, never been in church, or got fed up and angry at the church. (We get that.) We welcome you if you’re single, separated, divorced, married, or widowed. We welcome you if you’re childless or have 20 children. We extend the warmest of welcomes to Democrats, Republicans, Socialists, Libertarians, Communists, Green Party, and Independents. You are welcome here if you were born here, born in another country, born on another planet, here with documents or without documentation. We welcome all of God’s children, and that means you!
Sunday morning begins at 9:30am with a Sunday School class that features a lively discussion of a book chosen by the class. Topics and themes vary and its members take turns leading the class. All are welcome to come and join. Worship then begins at 11am in the Fellowship Hall, although we do worship in the sanctuary for all High Holy Days and on special occasions. We sing hymns with an organ or piano, the choir sings contemporary and not-so contemporary choral pieces, we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month and use prayers and liturgy that are written by our own members. Dress is casual. As Weny likes to say, “We are High Church in low heals.” We have a nursery available for younger children and activity packs for those who would like to stay in worship.
Then following worship, we gather for a luncheon — where all are welcome — prepared by one of our members. If you can’t join us in person you can find our sermons, music and podcasts under our Media page. OR come find us on Facebook where we stream our sermon live every Sunday at 11:15am.
If you have further questions, you can email Pastor Deborah or use our Contact page to reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you!
