Questions about Sundays?

 

At Trinity on the Hill, we love to wor­ship God and we invite you to join us either on Sun­day morn­ing or at one of our mid-week ser­vices. The “Wor­ship Here” menu above has more detailed infor­ma­tion on each ser­vice we offer.

As we wor­ship, “we unite our­selves with oth­ers to acknowl­edge the holi­ness of God, to hear God’s Word, to offer prayer, and to cel­e­brate the Sacraments.”

In the Eucharist, which is also called Communion, Mass, or the Lord’s Supper, we believe “the ben­e­fits we receive are the for­give­ness of our sins, the strength­en­ing of our union with Christ and one another, and the fore­taste of the heav­enly ban­quet which is our nour­ish­ment in eter­nal life.”

Through wor­ship­ping God and meet­ing Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the strength to “to rep­re­sent Christ and his Church; to bear wit­ness to him wher­ever we may be; and, accord­ing to the gifts given us, to carry on Christ’s work of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion in the world.”

Whether you are a sea­soned Chris­t­ian, or a seeker look­ing to expe­ri­ence God for the first time, you are wel­come to wor­ship with us and feast at the table of the Lord.

*Quo­ta­tions are taken from the ‘Out­line of the Faith’ found in the Book of Com­mon Prayer of the Epis­co­pal Church.

Where is Trinity on the Hill located?

What does worship look like at Trinity on the Hill?

We are a liturgical church, which means we follow a historic pattern of worship used since the earliest days of Christianity.  As Episcopalians, we use the Book of Common Prayer at our services.  The services are usually an hour long, though sometimes they can go about 70 minutes long.  We sing hymns, hear three different readings from Scripture, listen to a sermon, pray for the needs of our community and the world, and share in the bread and wine of the Eucharist.

Is there a dress code?

People come to worship dressed in a wide variety of clothing.  Some come in jeans and a t-shirt, some come in suit and tie.  Some even come in shorts during the winter! However you dress, you will find yourself welcomed by our community without question.

What do you offer for children on Sunday mornings?

For newborns up to the age of 5, we have a nursery that operates at both services.  Parents are invited to use the nursery how they see fit.  Some parents have their children in the nursery the entire service.  Some parents retrieve their children halfway through the service so the children can receive the Eucharist.  Some children don’t go to the nursery. At Trinity on the Hill, children are welcome to be in the sanctuary for the whole service.  We aren’t afraid or bothered by the noise and the wiggles of little children!

We have Sunday School for children ages 3 until High School.  For more information, click on these links: Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry

At the 10:30am service, there is a Children’s Sermon followed by Children’s Chapel in our historic St. Athanasius Chapel.  The children who attend Children’s Chapel will return to the sanctuary before the celebration of the Eucharist.
