Worship Services are designed for all ages, including families with young children as a Children's Story-time is normally a part of the service. Families are invited to worship together.


Large Print Bibles, Seat Cushions, and Hearing Assist Aids are available for the asking.


Holy Communion


We practice communion of the baptized. All who believe in the real presence of Christ’s body and blood in the Sacrament and desire His forgiveness through taking part in this meal are invited to receive the elements of bread and wine. All others are welcome for a blessing.


We offer grape juice as a substitute for those not able to drink wine in communion. Please indicate this to the communion server who is distributing the wine by holding up your index finger. Gluten free rice wafers are also available for those needing an alternate to wheat flour for health reasons.


Cry Room

This room is located to the left of the Sanctuary and is equipped with one-way glass and a speaker so that people in the Cry Room can hear and see what is happening in the Sanctuary. The Cry Room is provided for nursing moms who might prefer the privacy it offers. It also provides a space for very young children or infants who might need a "time out" space. This room is furnished with several rocking chairs, a table & a small lamp.


Chapel/Quiet Room

Located at the southwest corner of the building, behind the Fellowship Hall. This is a quiet, private space for grieving families to gather before funeral services; a quiet, reflective space for prayer time for staff; a smaller, more intimate space for individuals or small groups to pray, reflect and/or meditate; a comforting, inviting space for certain types of counseling; a private, joyous space for bridal parties to gather before weddings; and a more comfortable space for small committees and/or groups to gather for meetings or study.

EDUCATION

Trinity Lutheran Church provides a wide variety of educational opportunities for people of all ages to grow in grace, and in the knowledge of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Living as God’s People we extend an invitation for you to come and experience the joy of study in God’s word, and believe growing in God’s grace to be a lifelong process.


We learn of God’s love and promise to us through music, stories, crafts, videos, and study.
