SUNDAY – 9 A.M.
Worship led by choirs, organ, and instrumentalists, incorporating historical, yet relevant elements of Lutheran worship. Here you will participate with robed clergy and worship leaders. You will sing hymns, songs, liturgy and psalms from a worship book and hear music from the Renaissance to the contemporary, from Bach to Gospel and a message relevant to our lives today.
SUNDAY – 10:30 A.M.
Worship led by an ensemble incorporating the best of contemporary Lutheran music. Through worship leaders, electric bass, drums, keyboards, and other instruments, the congregation engages in a time of praise and worship following the historic pattern of Lutheran worship (Gathering, Word, the same message as at 9 a.m., Meal, and Sending.)
ONE WORSHIP SERVICE
A few times a year we offer one worship service only on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. to reflect a special occasion and come together as one body of Christ in community. These are advertised well in advance.
Worship is at the center of our lives together at Trinity. Therefore our Wednesday Faith Formation kids begin their Wednesday night experience with worship, then move into their small groups for learning and relationship building. Everyone is invited to attend this short worship service filled with kids and the basic elements of Lutheran worship—Wednesdays at 6 p.m. whenever Faith Formation meets.
Summer Worship Times
(Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend)
SUNDAY – 9 A.M.
Indoor Worship at Trinity
Trinity’s summer indoor service honors the rich heritage and deep roots we have as Lutherans. Each week, we feature guest musicians, who encompass an array of musical styles, to inspire us in connecting with God.
Similar to our 9 a.m. service during the fall and winter months, we follow a pattern or liturgy that has been developed over 2000 years: Gather, Word, Meal, Sending.What makes worship traditional is the garb that is hung on it: the style of music, choirs, organ, instruments, assisting ministers, processions, etc.
We believe in our increasingly secular world, the church needs to be more than just a historical witness to the faith. We are the church and we must act as contemporary witnesses to the gospel, bringing its reforming power into the world using the riches of our past, present and the future.
SUNDAY – 10 A.M.
Outdoor Worship at Drive-In in Houlton, Wi
Pile the kids and the family dog into the car and join us for our fun worship service at the Hilltop Drive-In Theater in Houlton, WI! The Drive-In is just across the Stillwater bridge: head east over the bridge, drive to the top of the hill, and look for the signs (it’s about five minutes from downtown Stillwater).
The Drive-In service features both contemporary and traditional music, with an eclectic mix of musicians, throughout the summer.
You’re welcome to stay in your car (the service is broadcast on the radio) or you can set up a lawn chair and enjoy the warm sun on your face. We even have coffee and scones before the service, so breakfast is covered! Dress is casual (yes, we’ve even seen some folks in PJs), the service joyful, and the fellowship warm and welcoming.
