Welcome to Trinity—we are a community dedicated to radical hospitality and nurturing faith. Our experiences are varied, but we are united in and by the love of Christ. Our Sunday 10:00 a.m. service reflects the community here at Trinity Reformed Church—we are an egalitarian, inclusive and multigenerational congregation. We've coined the spirit of Trinity’s worship as “liturgical folk” and we celebrate communion every Sunday. No matter who you are or where you’ve been, you’re invited to come as you are (jeans and t-shirts are as welcome as dresses and button downs). We look forward to welcoming you to our community of faith!
When you arrive at Trinity, enter through the parking lot doors and head up the steps to our Welcome Center. There you will grab a name tag and have any questions you might have answered by a friendly volunteer. From there you will head into the Gathering Space where you may grab a cup of hot coffee to take with you into our hearing loop equipped and wheelchair accessible sanctuary. Large print bulletins can be found on the back table and there are coloring pages and children's resources available to help keep little ones engaged.
We have a sample bulletin for you to get an idea of our worship flow. Typically, we follow the Revised Common Lectionary calendar (you can find the weekly scriptures here). We celebrate communion (gluten free) weekly, and baptized children and adults are all welcomed at the table.
Children are encouraged to be actively involved in our worship life as full participants. A nursery and children's liturgy are provided for families who want to use them, or children are welcome to remain in the service. Children sit with parents at the start of worship and from September – mid-May, they are invited mid-service to head upstairs with volunteers for separate, age-appropriate worship centers for children 3 years old - 5th grade. Before the children's message each week, the Prayer for Illumination: Be Still and Know That God is Here is recited together as a congregation.

After the service, we move into the Gathering Space for social time – coffee, tea, snacks, and conversation. Church members typically provide the snacks (they sign up for a particular Sunday), and it’s a good time to meet someone or catch up."Second Hour" begins at 11:30 a.m. and provides an educational opportunity for all ages. Parents may either pick their children up immediately following the service on the second floor, or at 12:15 p.m. in the basement classrooms after Second Hour.
