Christians struggle and battle with the forces of evil in the world, and the Lord calls on us to take up the weapons of the Word and take on the fight. He also urges us to be cautious and careful as we face our enemies, for not every apparent enemy is an actual enemy. Sometimes the real enemy is closer to home, even in ourselves. This is the point Jsus makes in the Gospel for this coming Sunday. We are wise to listen and learn. Come and worship with us.
Our Way of Worship
Our Sunday worship follows a worship pattern used in Christian churches for almost 1,500 years but in contemporary language and a variety of styles. The entire service is printed in an easy to use folder. We hear readings from the Bible and join together in prayer. We sing psalms and hymns found in a hymnal called Christian Worship which contains hundreds of well-known hymns. The high point of Sunday worship is the message or sermon, a twenty-minute explanation of a reading from the Bible and its meaning for our lives in the 21st century.
Some of our older members dress up for church, but casual dress is perfectly fine. The Lord looks at our hearts and attitudes, not our clothes. Members support the congregation’s work with offerings, but guests should not feel obligated to participate. Rest rooms are located in the lower level of the church.
On two Sundays a month we celebrate Holy Communion, a special meal that forgives our sins as we receive the Savior’s body and blood in bread and wine. The Bible teaches that receiving Holy Communion with others symbolizes our unity in faith, and so communion is offered to Trinity members and members of our denomination.
Come, let us worship the Lord
