Worship

worship

The worship of God is the central act of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. During worship we encounter God through word and sacrament with one another, and celebrate together the joys and sorrows we encounter in our lives.

Holy Trinity Lutheran celebrates worship weekly by combining traditional Lutheran liturgy along with more contemporary traditions from our hymnal: “Evangelical Lutheran Worship”.

Our sanctuary was designed to celebrate the Holy Trinity with our triangular shaped altar being the center focus of our worship space. At the altar we gather as a family to share, Holy Communion, a sacred meal of bread and wine modeled for us by Christ.

The worship committee meets once monthly to plan worship and explore creative ways to serve our church community. We coordinate various music and worship activities, and support the work of the altar guild, who prepare the sanctuary for worship each week. The committee assists in decorating the church for Advent and Christmas, and also help with planning and preparing for Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.

Children in worship

At Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, we worship and serve a loving and gracious God, who redeems us and claims us in baptism. In worship we mirror God’s reflection of grace and love with one another. During worship we are not simply performing rituals, but gathering as a family; sharing in the struggles, burdens, love, and joys with one another. As Christians we follow in the footsteps of Jesus by living our lives in a way that is honest, loving, and compassionate.

Following the model that Jesus establishes, we extend to children our open arms to grow, learn, and follow Christ. Children are invited fully to meet and experience our loving God in every aspect offered in corporate worship. As Lutherans, we make promises to God and the children during their baptismal vows. Our worship is enhanced by the joy children bring to our service. May their child-like faith be an example and a reminder to us that we are all children in God’s eyes.

Music Opportunities

Our Bell Choir rehearses weekly on Thursdays from 6:15-7:15 PM. The church owns 3 octaves of Malmark Handbells. Currently we are looking for four additional ringers to make use of the 3rd octave on a regular basis. We are also in need of a permanent substitute who could ring any position at sight. The group ranges in age from a 6thgrade to high school students to senior citizens and plays every 6 weeks or so and for all the church festivals.

The Senior Choir rehearses weekly on Thursdays from 7:15-8:45 PM and on Sundays from 8:45-9:30. The choir sings an anthem almost every Sunday from September through mid-June.  Choir members offer solos and duets during the summer months. Instrumentalists, including violinists and trumpeters, sometimes accompany anthems. High school students are welcome to sing in this choir.
