What to expect

Our worship service is an invitation to rest from work, reflect on life, and redirect yourself to following Jesus. In an atmosphere of quiet, thoughtfulness and beauty, you can expect to be drawn into loving, grace-filled connection with God.

Our worship

Liturgy is for everyone, who is spiritually hungry and seeking training in heartfelt obedience to God and His purpose for our lives – including beginners. Liturgy is participatory, so please join in! If you get off track in the liturgy, don’t worry. Just relax in the moment and make yourself peacefully present and alert to the Holy Spirit. Allow yourself to be immersed in the community around you – in song, prayers, and God’s Word.

Children & Youth Ministries

Jesus loves children and so do we! We believe that from the youngest infant to our teens, all should experience the love of Jesus and begin to know and live out his purpose for their lives. At Holy Trinity, our family ministry team is dedicated to age appropriate curriculums and activities to foster love and followership to Jesus. Our skilled and caring leaders endeavor to build genuine relationships with children and parents in a peaceful, thoughtful, and safe environment for each to thrive. As we follow the seasonal church year, we are committed to teaching God’s word and understanding God’s sacraments.

Caring

Our classrooms are marked by an atmosphere of peace and playfulness. Through a posture of hospitality, our leaders invite participation in activities and ensure each child feels safe and loved.

Learning

We do not settle for merely teaching Bible facts and data. We utilize Scripture to introduce children and youth to a way of being in the world as followers of Jesus. Our aim is to encourage growth in “wisdom and stature and in favor with God and others” (Luke 2:52). We cultivate formational practices to teach children and youth how to “turn their ears toward wisdom” and “store up God’s commands” in their hearts, in order to apply God’s word to their daily lives (Proverbs 2:1-5). Our youth leaders are intent on building relationships and connecting students to God through word and prayer. Youth are encouraged to develop friendships with one another through wholesome, fun outings.

Safety

At Holy Trinity Church, your child’s safety is our priority. We have a “team teacher” policy which is a team of two or more adults present to lead and supervise children and youth. Our childcare workers, leaders, volunteers and staff undergo safety protocols including training, fingerprinting and background checks. First-aid emergency kits are present in each classroom. Our leaders ensure safety guidelines are followed each Sunday.

Prayer & Care Ministries

At Holy Trinity, our intent is to serve with the same heart as our Lord’s, with compassionate and attentive care. Our desire is to assist people with various needs so that they may encounter God’s love. Pastoral care ministries at Holy Trinity Church include: biblical and pastoral counseling; spiritual direction; prayer, benevolence, and visitation.

Sundays

Holy Trinity Church has trained and compassionate prayer ministers available during and after the worship service to pray with you.
