Welcome!

Worship is the center of our lives together at Holy Trinity where Holy Communion is celebrated weekly at both services and everyone—without exception—is invited to receive the bread and wine.

Because it is Christ's table, we open it to all.

We gather every Sunday at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM for the service of Holy Communion. Children are always welcome and may attend Sunday School at the 9:00 AM hour. All are invited to join us for our coffee hour which follows all services.

9 AM is our Family Service featuring more upbeat music, contemporary readings and a children’s moment (sermon). 

10:30 AM is our Traditional Service with more traditional hymns and our Holy Trinity Choir offering a musical offering. 

During the summer months of July & August there is only one service at 10:00 AM

Word & Sacrament, Joyous Music

We gather as a community, often beginning each service with an announcement of forgiveness or a remembrance of our baptism. We hear the Word of God read in the Old and New Testaments, proclaimed in sermons, and sung in traditional hymns, global music, or songs with profound new poetry. Lutherans love to sing; God invites us all to lift up our voice in praise to our Lord!

We pray for the needs of the world, our neighbors, and ourselves, trusting that God always hears our prayers. We practice generosity by offering our resources for the work of God’s church. After we’ve shared the peace of Christ, we gather at the table to receive bread and wine, Christ’s own body and blood offered to all of us, without condition, for those who have great faith and those who wish they had more.

Finally, we are sent into the world to be agents of resurrection, empowered to serve our neighbor with compassion, humility, and justice.

Fellowship

Following worship we invite you to join others in the lower level Fellowship Hall for coffee, cake and conversation.

Holy Trinity is blessed to walk with you through all of life’s passages. Please call or contact the church office to schedule a meeting with Pastor Rebecca. 


Holy Baptism

We welcome people into God's family through the sacrament of Holy Baptism during one of our Sunday morning services.  Please speak to our pastor and arrange a meeting to discuss planning for this important sacrament.


First Communion

The sacrament of Holy Communion is most commonly offered to youth in grade three. Parents should speak with pastor if they feel their child is ready at an earlier or a later age. Preparation consists of a workshop with parents and their child where they discover the meaning of communion and bake communion bread. 

Weddings

Couples wishing to be married at Holy Trinity are asked to set up pre-marriage consultation with our pastor.  Please speak with someone at the church before finalizing your weddings plans.


Membership

We welcome all those who wish to become more active and/or desire membership. Those wishing to join Holy Trinity are invited to attend some information sessions prior to joining the congregation.


Funerals*

Pastor will help family members in arranging for the funeral of loved ones. Holy Trinity recommends that the funeral take place in church for faithful Christians.
