The Worship Committee at Trinity consists of 1 or 2 Elders, 5 or 6 members of the Congregation, and the Pastor and Choir Director (ex-officio). We are responsible for all aspects of the Worship Service and the use of the Sanctuary for anything other than regularly scheduled Services. We schedule and train Elders to serve Communion and insure that Ushers are in place for all planned Services. We help plan our annual “Picnic Service” at Lake Weston. If you have questions, contact us at email@example.com and enter “Worship Committee” in the subject line or come to our monthly meeting, at the Church, the 1st Tuesday each month @ 4 pm.
On Sunday mornings, we offer two worship services.
9:00 Just As You Are Contemporary Worship and Study
Here we worship God through contemporary music, visuals on screen, and interactive conversation. We are currently using the DVD-based study, Making Sense of the Bible. All ages participate and are welcome to come as you are, though nursery is also provided for those who prefer. This service meets in the round in the chapel.
11:00 Traditional Worship
At 11:00, we gather to worship God in a traditional Presbyterian service with a call to worship, prayer of confession and assurance of forgiveness, passing of the peace, Scripture and Sermon, prayers of the people and our opportunity to respond to God’s grace through our weekly offering. Hymns are sung throughout the service, and our choir adds to our worship with a weekly anthem. Church members assist with worship leadership by serving as greeters, ushers, and as liturgists. Our children participate in this service as acolytes and collecting canned goods for Harvest Hope Food Bank each week during the offering time. Nursery is provided for infants through Pre-K. Worship bags are provided for elementary aged children. This service meets in the sanctuary.
10:00 Summer Worship
In the summer months of June, July, and August we gather in the chapel for a time of worship and community. In this service, we try to combine the different aspects of the traditional service and the contemporary service and come together to praise God.
Throughout the year, we also enjoy special worship services including Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, a community Thanksgiving service in conjunction with Christ the King Lutheran and Church of the Cross Episcopal churches, and our Christmas Eve candlelight communion service. Many of us also attend the community Easter Sunrise service held each year at Greenlawn Memorial Park.
The worship committee is currently chaired by Bob Dunn and Dottie Copeland, and meets the first Tuesday of each month at 4:00pm. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include “ATTN: Worship committee” in the subject line.
