About the Liturgy
The Lutheran church is a liturgical church. Lutherans believe that the gospel is not only the good news that Jesus has saved sinners, but also a power God uses to create and strengthen faith in Jesus. Lutheran worship places the gospel in central focus in an order of service called the liturgy. In message and meal (Holy Communion), in specially selected Bible readings, and in carefully crafted songs, prayers, and confessions, the liturgy points to Jesus as the Savior of all.

Getting Involved with Worship
The best way to get involved in worship is to attend a service. You will participate in responsive readings, prayers, hymns, psalms and canticles. Even if you don't think you are the best singer we still encourage you to make a joyful noise to the Lord. Listed below are others way you can be involved with worship at Trinity:
Choirs and Music
Those who enjoy music and singing are encouraged to join one of Trinity's choirs.
The Senior Choir is open to any confirmed member of the congregation and sings a variety of music at various services throughout the year.
The A Cappella Choir is for those who enjoy the challenge and have the ear for unaccompanied singing. The A Cappella choir sings traditional four part chorales and participates in many services throughout the year. Both choirs rehearse on Wednesday evenings starting at 6:00 pm in the church balcony.
Members are invited to join rehearsals at any time.
Instrumentalists and accompanists with a medium level of proficiency are encouraged to volunteer their talents to accompany our choirs and congregational singing.
Decorating and Altar Guild
We are also in need of artistic individuals who can help design, plan and set up seasonal decorations in the sanctuary, fellowship hall and welcome center. Trinity has an altar guild that sets up communion and makes sure the communion vessels and altar linens are cared for properly.
Ushers, Greeters and Audio Visual Teams
Our ushers and greeters make sure that worshipers are welcomed and have the direction and resources needed to feel comfortable at Trinity. Our audio/visual teams record and make copies of our services for home bound members and internet viewing.
Please fill our the volunteer survey to indicate your interest in getting involved with any of the activities listed above.

About Participation in Holy Communion
We believe that God comes to us with forgiveness in very tangible means as we participate in Holy Communion. Because the Bible has convinced us that Jesus’ body and blood are present in the Lord’s Supper, and that receiving this sacrament together is a public statement of complete oneness in our beliefs and commitment, we invite to the Lord’s Supper members of Trinity and guests from sister congregations of the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) and the ELS (Evangelical Lutheran Synod). If you are a member of another Lutheran denomination or another Christian church and would like to commune with us, please contact our pastor and he would be delighted to explain what that entails. We don’t want to be presumptuous and put you in the position of stating your agreement with our convictions before we have had an opportunity to explain them. We do look forward to any opportunity to discuss the Christian faith with you.
