Trinity is worshiping in new ways.

 Please sign up for in person worship here.  Please join us for worship in person or online. Please scroll down for the order of worship and lyrics for today’s worship.
October 24th we have one service in the sanctuary at 10 a.m. because of the church retreat.
 
Fall Worship: 9am outside contemporary worship 11:15 a.m. inside traditional (recorded) worship and online.
 
A few things you need to know for in person worship: 

Outside at 9am: Please sign up. Everyone will need a mask for singing and we are encouraging physical distancing. Masks are required on Trinity property if you are not vaccinated.  Please bring something to sit on. If there is inclement weather, we will move the 9am outside worship to inside the sanctuary  and update the website and email the change by 7:30am that Sunday. Inside worship will be limited to 75 people, masked, with space on the left side of the sanctuary for 3 ft physical distancing for those who prefer it.  If the sign up for outside worship is greater than 75 people, we will ask people to sign up for inside worship that morning. We anticipate  some people would prefer not to worship inside so there should be space for everyone. 

Inside at 11:15am: Please sign up. Everyone will need a mask at all times. Inside worship will be limited to 75 people, masked, with space on the left side of the sanctuary for 3 ft physical distancing and every other pew open for those who prefer it.  We will have pews blocked off on the left side and also reminders in each pew for distancing.  We are limiting the number to 75 so there is more space for everyone.

At home: We are recording the inside worship and hope to have it available each week via the website, the enews on Wednesdays or earlier on the website/Youtube channel, barring any technical glitches.

Childcare: Will be available at both services. While we are not requiring sign up for childcare, it is helpful for planning.  Sign up here.

Bulletins: please use your enews bulletin link, the website link, or the church app link for your bulletin. We will offer a few bulletins in large print for worshipers that are unable to access the digital bulletin.

 

Please see the Trinity Worship enews email on Sunday for the bulletin and prayer concerns.
 

The liturgist today is Gil Klein.

Scripture and Lyrics
Psalm 134
Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, who stand by night in the house of the Lord!
Lift up your hands to the holy place, and bless the Lord.
May the Lord, maker of heaven and earth, bless you from Zion.
Job 38:1-7, 42:1-9
Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me.
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?
Then Job answered the Lord: “I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted. ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. ‘Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.’ I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”
After the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. Now therefore take seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept his prayer not to deal with you according to your folly; for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has done.” So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did what the Lord had told them; and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer.
 
Hymn # 19 God of Great and God of Small
1 God of great and God of small,
God of one and God of all,
God of weak and God of strong,
God to whom all things belong,
alleluia, alleluia,
praise be to your name.
2 God of land and sky and sea,
God of life and destiny,
God of never-ending power,
yet beside me every hour,
alleluia, alleluia,
praise be to your name.
3 God of silence, God of sound,
God by whom the lost are found,
God of day and darkest night,
God whose love turns wrong to right,
alleluia, alleluia,
praise be to your name.
4 God of heaven and God of earth,
God of death and God of birth,
God of now and days before,
God who reigns forevermore,
alleluia, alleluia,
praise be to your name.
Hymn #327 From All that Dwell Below the Skies
1 From all that dwell below the skies
let the Creator’s praise arise:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Let the Redeemer’s name be sung
through every land, in every tongue.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
2 In every land begin the song;
to every land the strains belong:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
In cheerful sound all voices raise
and fill the world with joyful praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
3 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord;
eternal truth attends thy word:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
till suns shall rise and set no more.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
