Believers Follow the Savior to the Cross
On the Sunday of the Passion, also known as Palm Sunday, Christians hear the account of the Savior's last journey to the cross. In readings and hymns we follow Jesus from Saturday to Saturday, from a banquet in Bethany to the garden of his tomb. In this way we prepare ourselves for the celebration of Easter.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty and everlasting God, you sent your Son Jesus Christ to take upon himself our flesh and suffer death upon the cross. Mercifully grant that we may follow the example of his great humility and patience and be made partakers of his resurrection; trough our Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever, Amen.
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
