Visitors' Guide

You're always welcome at Trinity.   
 
We would really enjoy your visit.  Here are some common visitor questions about worship.  Feel free to call or email us with any other questions. 

Can I remain anonymous (will I be pointed out to everyone as a visitor)?
I just want to come and watch. Is that OK?
How should I dress?
Where should I park?
What about the offering?
What about Holy Communion?
Who are your pastors?
What if I use a wheelchair, or have special vision or hearing needs?
Where are the restrooms?




How do I become a member?
By being a member of a church, you are professing that you believe what that particular church believes. The two ways we generally receive new members is by transfer or by profession. If a person belongs to a different WELS church but has moved into this area and would now like to join Trinity, we receive that person by transfer understanding that their beliefs are in agreement with ours. For those who do not belong to a WELS church, we offer instruction so that a person may understand what we teach before professing to believe what we believe. Find information about that instruction here.


When are the worship services held?
Sundays at 7:45 am & 10:00 am
Mondays at 6:30 pm

What does Trinity teach?
By our very nature we are all rebels against God. God answered our rebellion (our sin) with love. Jesus Christ lived a perfect sinless life for you (as a substitute for you and all people). Jesus also died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sins and for the sins of all people. This foundational truth is emphasized by Trinity in all of its programs. This is the central theme of our worship. We teach what God says in the Bible. You are encouraged to ask us, "Where is that taught in the Bible?" We are happy to hear and answer every question.

What is the worship service like?
All of our worship services focus on what God has to tell us in the Bible. Each service has several readings from the Bible, a sermon (message given by the pastor), several hymns (songs), and several prayers. As you enter the church, an usher should hand you a worship folder with an order of worship. The order of worship helps you follow what is happening during the worship service. Several times the congregation (everyone) will stand to honor God, such as while the Gospel is read from the Bible. While a choir may sing at a service you attend, most songs are sung by the entire congregation. Sometimes the congregation reads out loud from the worship folder. You may choose to stand, sing, and read, or to sit and observe. It is your choice.  Each service lasts about 1 hour.

How will I know what to do during the service?
If you wish to participate in the service, just follow what is printed in the worship folder which is given to you as you enter church and/or follow along with text on the screens in front of church. The red hymn books (located at each seat) are used for most songs. Please feel free to ask any nearby person, "I'm new here. Can you help me?"
We really desire to help our guests including you.

What about kids?
Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me.” We love children and encourage their worship. Please don’t feel embarrassed if your child is restless during the service. You are among caring people who understand and several families with young children attend worship services. If you feel that your child is distracting others from worship, you may take him to the entry of the church.

Can I remain anonymous (will I be pointed out to everyone as a visitor)?
Trinity does NOT ask visitors to stand up and be introduced as some churches do. Our ushers, greeters, and some regular worshipers will probably greet you as you enter and leave church. It is up to you whether you wish to have an extended conversation with us. Many visitors attend several times before they wish to have a conversation.

I just want to come and watch. Is that OK?
It is entirely OK. Everyone is welcome to come and simply watch, or to participate in the worship service. Whether you are a Christian looking for a new church home, or someone of another faith who simply wishes to see what our worship is all about, please feel welcome.

How should I dress?
Be yourself. We aren't worried about what you're wearing. Come casual or dress up. Many of our regular worshipers wear their best clothes out of reverence for God.

Where should I park?
You may park on any of the streets around the church or in the parking lot directly across the street by the gymnasium. There are also a few handicapped spots in both locations.

What about the offering?
The offering allows members of Trinity an opportunity to give a monetary gift out of love for Jesus. As our guest you are not expected to contribute, but any gift you give is appreciated.

What about Holy Communion?
We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. In keeping with God's Word, and as a confession of faith, we ask that only members of Trinity, another WELS or ELS congregation, or visitors who have spoken about communion with the pastor before worship, come forward to the Lord's Table.

Who are your pastors?
Pastor David Fleischmann and Pastor Kurtis Mau serve the Lord at Trinity. You are invited to call and arrange to discuss spiritual matters with either of these thoroughly trained ministers.

What if I use a wheelchair, or have special vision or hearing needs?
Large print copies of the worship folder and hymns are available from the ushers. We also have a hearing loop system in which our microphones are tied in directly to your hearing aid. There is a lift up to the sanctuary that the ushers would be happy to assist you with.  Wheelchairs are available from the ushers. Several spaces in the church's seating area are provided for worshipers using wheelchairs, allowing them to sit with their families.

Where are the restrooms?
There is a restroom on the upper level right behind the sanctuary.  As you exit the sanctuary, you will find it on the far left.  There are also larger men's and women's restrooms in our fellowship hall in the church basement.  The stairs down to the basement are found near the front doors.
