Welcome!

We’re glad you’re checking us out here on the web, and hope you will join us for worship soon! This page is here to answer those FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) that you might want to know something about before visiting us in person. If you have a question we don’t address here, please email office@trinitypresonline.com and we will get back to you shortly!

Where do I go when I arrive on a Sunday morning?

You will find that Trinity is a congregation of warm, welcoming people. Before you have a chance to ask where something is, it is likely that someone will spot you and offer to help. But maybe you’re the type of person that wants to know ahead of time anyway.

So…

  • If you’re coming to Sunday School at 10:00. All classes meet on the office side of the building. Our nursery is in room 5 and 6. The Adult classes meet across the hall from the nursery.
  • If you’re coming to our traditional service at 11:00, we meet in the sanctuary. People tend to begin gathering about 10:45. Even if you arrive late, you are always welcome to join us for worship! Ushers are available to help seat you.

What do most people wear to services?

Our 11:00 service is a bit more formal, but we do not have a particular dress code! Dressy casual is probably the most typical, but you will find people in a variety of dress, from jeans to career casual to traditional Sunday dress. As the saying goes, “God doesn’t care what you wear, God’s just glad you’re here!” (and so are we!).

What do Presbyterians believe?

Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, whom alone we worship and serve.(From A Brief Statement of Faith)

God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time. Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.

More than two million people call the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) their spiritual home. Worshiping in 10,000 Presbyterian congregations throughout the United States, they
engage the communities in which they live and serve with God’s love.*

How do I join?

If you are interested in joining Trinity Presbyterian Church, please contact Pastor Robyn. We host an actual new member class on an as-needed basis; as individuals or couples become interested in joining at any given time, we hold a more casual conversational process in which we talk about the structure of the Presbyterian Church (USA), what we believe, how we are governed, and more of the details of Trinity Presbyterian church. At the end of that time, if you are ready to join, a few members of the session will meet with you to hear your faith journey, and formally receive you into membership. We then ask you to join the church in a service of worship, where you publicly reaffirm your faith. If you are a member of another congregation, we will request that church to send us a letter of transfer.
