“Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music.”

– Martin Luther

Can you sing? Can you play an instrument?

Trinity Choir

The Trinity Choir sings for the 8:30 and 11 a.m. Sunday worship services. Rehearsals are Wednesdays, October-December, and then March-May from 7-8:30 p.m. The choir is open to all without audition. In addition to Sunday services, the choir presents concerts each season and a highly anticipated annual Advent Lessons and Carols.

We work together to develop a collective sense of community–musically and spiritually–that enables us to share God’s love with one another and with our congregation. Many people find the experience of singing in choir to be a place where they feel most connected to others, to their faith, and to God.

Seasonal Choir

The Seasonal Choir sings for festival worship services throughout the church year like Reformation, Christmas, Holy Week, and Easter. Rehearsals are generally only a few weeks before each event and do not require significant commitment.

Contemporary Worship Teams

Both the Mission and Shawnee Campuses have in-house worship teams which lead our contemporary music services. Open to singers and instrumentalists by audition.

He who sings, prays twice. – St. Augustine

Music and Arts Classes

It is Trinity’s joy to share a love of the arts with others and to be known as a congregation who provides artistic experiences for our members and the community. Trinity’s vibrant arts community includes concerts, student recitals, church music workshops, choir, instrumental ensembles, vocal ensembles, art exhibitions, liturgical dance events, drama and the hosting of professional touring artists. Instruction classes are offered in watercolor and oil painting, piano, toddler music, Suzuki violin and dramatic improvisation.

Trinity’s collection of religious art is impressive. We are blessed with members who regularly express their faith in the creation of stained class images, worship banners, architectural design, furniture building, woodworking, interior design, painting, quilting, floral design, and landscaping as well as our wonderful musicians who share their gifts in our worship services. Because of who we are collectively, connecting to the community through our Arts Ministry is a natural avenue.
