The chief end of human life is to glorify and enjoy God forever! Worship is the place to begin. Worship is central to our life together at Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church. When you join us for worship, you join a body that seeks to set aside what we want and who we are and place our focus on God. In worship our community rejoices in God’s presence in the world and in our lives, offering our praise and thanksgiving, being transformed, renewed and equipped to answer Christ’s call to us.
Founded on the traditions of the Church, our worship seeks to facilitate our spiritual experience through engaging sermons and inspiring music. While treasuring the classical liturgies and musical forms, we embrace new forms and music that enhance the beauty of the praise and thanksgiving we offer God.
Schedule of Sunday Services*

Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper each week.

We welcome children of all ages in worship. Children ages 4 years – rising 2nd grade are invited to Children’s Time with the Pastor. Afterwards, they will then leave with a leader for Children’s Church. Children’s Church includes Godly Play worship which is a method of teaching biblical stories. On communion Sunday’s, the children will reenter the service after the sermon to participate in communion with their families.
*Childcare is provided for both services, beginning 15 minutes prior to the service.
Throughout the liturgical year, special worship services are planned, including those on Christmas Eve and during Holy Week (Maundy Thursday and Good Friday). In addition, you may want to join us on Wednesday evenings for dinner and worship. Other special services are held at regular intervals, and have in the past included a Service of Healing and Wholeness and Children’s Communion Worship. Announcements about these services are made via the congregation Facebook page, email messages, the newsletter and the weekly bulletin. Childcare is generally available for these special services.
Worship at Trinity Avenue is enhanced by a strong music ministry which includes the singing of hymns, choral music from our three choirs and periodic special music offerings by guest instrumentalists, choirs and singers. Through this music ministry, worshipers have the opportunity to hear God’s message in new and stimulating ways.
Trinity Choir rehearses Wednesdays, 7:15-9:00 p.m. The choir provides musical leadership for the 11:00 a.m. Sunday worship service each week. In addition, the Choir sings special musical programs with the Trinity Chamber Orchestra at Christmas, Easter and festival Sundays.
