Sundays at Trinity are centered around our worship service. Our service each week seeks to be
God-centered, God-directed, and God-glorifying; anchored in the historical richness of tradition;
understandable by today's culture; focused on the grace of God; and making use of the means of
grace of the Word, sacraments, and prayer.
We would love to have you join us! You will find us at 2577 Schaeffer Lane NE,
just east of Century High School, off Viola Road, in Rochester, Minnesota.

What to Expect & Things to Know
Once you arrive you will be greeted in a relaxed and welcoming way. Our greeters and ushers
will be happy to answer any questions you have including the location of the restrooms,
nursery, classrooms, and sanctuary.
Our Worship Service
As you enter the sanctuary you will be handed a copy of our weekly bulletin. The first several pages
contain the “liturgy”(the word simply means “plan”) that we follow during the service. You will find everything you need to know contained in these pages.
We conclude our services almost every week with the Lord's Supper. Wine, grape juice, and gluten-free bread are used. We invite to the Lord’s Table all baptized Christians who are members of TPC or some other evangelical church. Those participating acknowledge that they are in covenant with God and an active member of a congregation in which the gospel is faithfully confessed, taught, and believed. They also acknowledge that they are sinners, without hope except in the sovereign mercy of God, and that they are trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
If you have questions about participating, please feel free to speak with one of the elders before
or after the service.
We believe God calls us to nurture and disciple our children in the faith. One of the ways we do this
is through corporate worship. You are welcome to keep your children with you during the service, and
we also offer a nursery for kids ages birth through age three. Additionally, there is a private room within
the sanctuary (north side) for nursing moms. The foyer can be used for children who are crying or
need some extra attention. Both places have speakers which will enable you to hear the service.
During the school year, at our 11am worship service, children ages four through Kindergarten who are potty-trained may attend a Children’s Worship program. This program provides a place for this small subset of our children to learn about what we do in the worship service. Those who are interested in participating may leave the morning worship service at the designated time and meet the Children’s Worship leaders in the foyer where they will be led to a classroom in the education wing.
What to Wear
We don’t have a dress code at Trinity. People who attend come from many different kinds of back-
grounds. You will see a variety of attire including some in suits and ties and others in T-shirts and
jeans. Please wear what seems appropriate and comfortable for you.
Coffee & Fellowship
Please plan to stay after the service and enjoy some coffee or tea during our fellowship time. This is a
relaxed time when people visit, catch up with old friends, and meet new people. Feel free to browse
our Bookwall and visit with others in the foyer and hallways.
Our Christian Education Program
At Trinity we believe growing in faith and maturity is very important. One of the ways we encourage growth in our knowledge and love for the Lord is through weekly classes offered on Sunday mornings during the school year. We have classes offered for every age group from 3-years to adults. You can find information about the class locations at the Welcome Center or by asking one of the greeters, ushers, elders or deacons. At Trinity we take child protection very seriously. We have robust child protection policies and procedures in place which you can view here.
Because some in our congregation have life-threatening allergies,
ALL OF TRINITY is a peanut-free zone.
