Hospitality

The Hospitality Team’s mission is:

“Welcoming all people into worship and fellowship”

HOSPITALITY

As a Reconciling in Christ community of faith, Trinity welcomes all people. With other Valparaiso area churches, we resist and oppose racism and other forms of prejudice in our churches and in our community. We commit ourselves to welcome all people as equally loved, forgiven, accepted, and blessed children of God.

CHURCH FACILITIES

A parking lot, entrance doors and an elevator are located on the west side of the church building. There are also entrances off of Washington and Chicago Streets. An un-staffed nursery for small children and their parents is available during worship services. Also, activity bags for children are located in the coatroom. Restrooms are available on the upper floor in the educational wing and on the bottom floor near the fellowship hall, including one accessible to all. Regular and large-print service folders are available from the ushers and hymnals and Bibles are located in each pew.

HOLY COMMUNION

At Trinity, the Holy Communion is celebrated in accordance with Holy Scripture and the Confessions of the Lutheran Church. In the Sacrament of the Altar Our Lord offers his true body and blood for the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. Admission to the Sacrament is by invitation of the Lord, presented through the church to those who are baptized. Baptized Christians are welcome and encouraged to receive the Sacrament with us.

FELLOWSHIP TIME

Everyone is welcome at fellowship time at Trinity which is held between the 8:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. worship services. From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend fellowship time is held after one service held at 9:00 a.m. Saturday worshippers have fellowship time every other month after the 5:30 p.m. worship service. We also have an Easter Vigil Break-Fast fellowship time after the Saturday Vigil worship service each year.

FUNERALS/MEMORIALS

Trinity offers food and beverages in the fellowship hall following funerals if desired by the family. The Pastor discusses with the family the options that are available to them. In this small way, Trinity extends its love and care to those who have lost loved ones.
