WHAT TO EXPECT
Trinity Pentecostal Church strives to be “A Place for the Whole Family.”
We want you and any guests or family members with you to feel comfortable and welcome here.
 
 
 
 
 
 

  Wondering what to wear? 

Trinity Pentecostal Church values modesty. That is why you will see many of our leaders and congregation in business casual or business formal style. However, casual dress is quite common as well, and you will not stick out if you don’t have business wear.  
 

  Wondering about parking?  

When you first arrive, you will enter the parking lot for our main church building, and you can feel free to park anywhere you would like. Then you can enter through the main building’s entrance, which faces the highway. 
 

  Expect to be greeted!  

When you come through our main entrance, a friendly church member will welcome you to Trinity, hand you a bulletin and guide you and anyone with you to your appropriate class, or to the sanctuary.
 

  We have childcare!  

We have a variety of classes for all age groups on Sunday mornings. Our greeters will give you more information when you arrive. There are no classes on Sunday nights, but the nursery is always available for parents to use as needed.
 

  What to expect from a regular service –  

On Sunday mornings, we have a variety of Sunday school groups for all ages. After Sunday School, the teens and adults join together in the Sanctuary. We have a time of worship, take up an offering, and listen to a sermon from Pastor Mike. There is usually an altar call.
 
On Sunday nights, all ages meet together in the Sanctuary. We follow a similar pattern to Sunday morning. We will also take up prayer requests, allow testimonies, and have a time of fellowship.
 
On Wednesday nights, we have classes for children and teens. The adults meet for Bible study or ER Recovery Class.
 

  What to expect from worship –  

The worship team and choir at Trinity strive to unify the congregation and point our hearts and minds toward Christ. You can expect a mix of traditional and contemporary music. You are free to stand, lift your hands, and worship as the Holy Spirit leads.
 

  What if I am unfamiliar with Pentecostal church traditions? 

  What do I need to know my first time visiting a Pentecostal church?  

All churches have a different atmosphere – even churches among the same denomination! If you are unsure whether you would feel comfortable at Trinity Pentecostal Church, we urge you to consider the following so you know what to expect:
  • Gifts of the Spirit – We believe in the gifts of the Spirit such as speaking in tongues, prophecy, and healing. It is common at Trinity for gifts of the Spirit to be manifested during our worship time or altar call.
  • Tongues and Interpretation – We believe that one primary purpose of tongues is to edify the church. At times, a message may be given in tongues. This should be followed by someone giving an interpretation. It is appropriate to be quiet and prayerful during this time. Another purpose of tongues is prayer between an individual and God – for this, there is not usually an interpretation.
  • Being led by the Spirit – We believe in all things being done decently and in order. We follow a specific order of service for all of our meetings. However, we also believe in being led by the Spirit and allowing God to have His way in our services. Our altars are always open for those who feel led to come and pray, or just to praise God at the altar.
Overall, we do not want anyone to feel alienated or left out. We want you to know what to expect and to feel comfortable. You are always free as a guest to join in our times of worship and prayer. However, you are under no pressure to participate in anything you are not familiar with or have questions about.
We encourage you to speak with our Pastor, his wife, or another one of our ministry leaders if you have any questions about our beliefs and practices.
