Reformation Sunday - October 28
On October 28, Reformation Sunday is the day in the liturgical calendar that we celebrate the presence of the Holy Spirit of Martin Luther and other Reformers.

What to Expect When Worshiping at Holy Trinity
If you are visiting for the first time or you are not a regular church-goer, this short guide is for you.
What is worship like?
Worship at Holy Trinity follows a traditional pattern that dates from the early church. It involves the whole person in the "worship of the people" (the "liturgy"). There is singing and responsive readings, prayers and greetings, candles and colorful pastoral garb, sitting and standing, words about the Word and an open invitation to the Lord's Supper, offerings and closing exhortations to go forth and serve the world. Don't worry if this may be new to you. We all use a printed Worship Booklet to guide us through the service, and other worshipers will happily help the newcomer. A large-print version of the Worship Booklet is also available. Just ask the usher.
What should I wear?
People of every walk of life are part of our community and our attire reflects that. Come as you are. You will see people in jeans, dresses, suits, shorts, high heels and flip-flops.
What happens after worship?
Following the worship service we assemble in the Gathering area for coffee, light treats, and fellowship. Please join us!
Children in Worship
If you bring a child to worship at Holy Trinity, feel free to relax! We believe that God gave children the wiggles when God made them, and it’s ok for them to wiggle during worship.
We have a children’s sermon each week during worship to engage children in the stories of the Bible in a way that they can understand.
We have three worship tables in our sanctuary for children to use. Each table has a Children's Bulletin. Your family is welcome to sit near one, and your children can worship while they color and create artwork to decorate our sanctuary.
Children of all ages are welcome in our worship service, but for those who wish it, a staffed nursery is provided for children up to age 5 and located down the hallways to the left of the kitchen.
