Visiting a new church for the first time can be intimidating. The following information will answer some of your questions about what to expect when you visit us. Check around the rest of our website, and feel free to contact us if you have any unanswered questions or comments.
You can find directions by clicking here. You will find plenty of parking, including special spaces for visitors and handicapped spaces in front of and beside the church. The building is wheelchair-accessible. There is a coat closet on the right just inside the main front doors. There are restrooms just off the narthex/lobby. Greeters and ushers in the narthex will give you a bulletin, gladly answer any questions you have and help you if you need assistance.
We do ask that you get a name tag at the welcome table in the narthex so we can greet you by name. We are delighted to have you as a guest and we hope your time with us will be a blessing to you.
We do not have a dress code. Worshippers at Holy Trinity wear anything from jeans and t-shirts, to slacks and golf shirts, to suits and ties. Please wear whatever you feel is most comfortable for you in this setting.
Child care is available during all services for infants and toddlers in our staffed nursery room down stairs. Just ask and we will help you find your way. At the 9:00 am service children are invited to come forward and listen or participate in a Children’s Sermon. If your children remain in worship you may want to find the Welcome Wagon in the left rear of the church where there are activity bags for the children. If you need to take your child out of the sanctuary, you can still listen to the service on the speakers in the narthex.
Everything you need in order to follow the service is in the bulletin. There’s no need to deal with multiple books. Hymns are in the red worship book. LARGE PRINT versions of the bulletin are available from the ushers. You can drop-off your copy of the bulletin in our recycling baskets located by the door on your way out.
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion. This gift is the real presence of God’s forgiveness and mercy.
The ushers will indicate when it’s your row’s turn to approach the altar. If you choose to participate, join the line in the center aisle, and when you reach the front, the pastor or assisting minister will give you the bread and say “The body of Christ, given for you.” You may say, "Amen". Next the acolyte will offer you wine. White grape juice is in the individual cups in the center of the trays, and red wine is in the outer rows of the tray. As you take the wine of grape juice the acolyte will say “The blood of Christ, shed for you.” Place the used cup on the small table as you leave the center front and return to your seat by the side aisle.
If you wish to take communion but are unable to walk to the front of the church, please notify an usher, and the pastor will bring you communion.
