Whether you are looking for a church family or are just in town for the weekend, we love having guests! In order to make your first time with us as easy and as comfortable as possible we have included the following list of what you can expect on any given Sunday morning here at Trinity.
As you prepare to visit, you might like to know that most folks here dress pretty casually. If you are not familiar with where our building is located, you can find directions on the "Where to Find Us" page. There is a covered drive-through at the front door of the building, and there are handicapped accessible parking spaces available on either side of that loop. A wheelchair ramp is also available on the left side when facing the building.
2. Find a place for you and your family
When you enter the front door you will find an entryway with stairs leading either up or down. If you are arriving for Sunday School (at 9:30, restarting in September), you can take any children downstairs where you will find our nursery and classrooms. The Cross Training classes for high school students and adults all meet upstairs (also restarting in September).
If you are arriving for the Worship Service at 10:00 (summer schedule), come on upstairs to the foyer. There is an information booth in the foyer with more information about the church, and the greeters can help answer any questions that you may have. Nursery care and children's church for age 4 to 8 are available downstairs from the beginning of the service. Once you are ready, come on in and have a seat.
3. Worship with us
The service usually lasts about an hour. We nearly always start out with a time of praise and worship songs, followed by a few announcements and a prayer led by one of the church leaders. There is then a message from the Bible, usually about 25 to 30 minutes. Older elementary age students are welcome to join in on our Transition Kids program during this time. You can find more on our Sunday worship page.
One thing you may notice is that we don't collect an offering during the service. There is a wooden box by the glass doors for those who would like to help financially support our ministry, but we don't want our guests to feel obligated to do so.
We are a pretty friendly bunch, but we also respect those who would prefer to remain more anonymous on a first visit. The bottom line is that we won't single anyone out or put anyone on the spot. For those who are ready to take the next step in connecting with others at Trinity, we recommend checking out a small group. If you have any additional questions that were not answered here, please call Mark at 927-4384.
