Are You New? 

You will be warmly welcomed. – In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he gives us a command to show hospitality to others. Here at Holy Trinity, we take Paul’s command seriously. We pride ourselves on making everyone who comes through our doors feel welcome. We are a church family in every way that truly loves and cares not only for one another but also for all those who may come to visit us for a day or who hopefully stay with us for a lifetime.

Walking into a new church, or a new denomination can be an intimidating experience. But don’t let that stop you. To make things a bit easier for you, we offer this brief introduction of what newcomers might expect. If you have questions during the service, feel free to ask someone nearby or one of the ushers at the back of the church.

The Act of Worship – As Episcopalians, we gather in worship to celebrate God’s presence among us. The services follow an order found in our Book of Common Prayer (“common prayer” refers to the prayers we say as a group, in common). We’re a sacramental and liturgical church, acknowledging our traditional rites and roots but open to thoughtful debate.

As you enter the church, you’ll be greeted by an usher and be given a pew bulletin that will guide you through the service, containing all the prayers, responses, and readings. It will also tell you when to stand or kneel. Practices vary, even among Episcopalians. Generally, we stand to sing; prayers are said either standing or kneeling; we stand to hear the Gospel and sit to hear the other readings.

On the back of the pews, you will find two books: the blue 1982 Hymnal and the black Book of Common Prayer from which all services are conducted. Pew bulletins are used to make following the services easier, especially for newcomers.

An Open Door – When you visit an Episcopal church, you will be a respected and welcomed guest. You will not be singled out in any way nor asked to stand before the congregation nor to come forward. You will simply be part of our family as we worship God. We strive to live by the message of Jesus Christ in which there are no outcasts and every one of God’s creations is welcome.
