  • LITURGICAL arts

    Liturgical Arts includes visual and performance arts that enhance our worship and liturgical year. If you have a gift you would like to share, let us know!

  • Chancel choir

    The Chancel Choir meets on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m., September through mid June.  This is a praying and caring group of people committed to worshiping through quality choral music.  We do a wide variety of musical styles throughout the year, including renaissance, baroque classical, romantic, contemporary, gospel, jazz, and rock.  In the summer months, the choir meets on Sunday morning before worship at 8:30 to prepare that morning's musical offering. This is a great time to come try us out! 

  • Worship Team

    Our song leaders and band lead the congregation in singing and provide a blended assortment of music in worship on most Sundays. Rehearsals are arranged as needed. Sunday morning run-through is scheduled between

    8-9:30 a.m. 

  • MEDIA and TECH

    Trinity's visual media and sound assistants provide technical support for our weekly worship services. This includes switching slides, running video equipment, lighting and assisting our sound engineer. This is perfect for those techie-types. Most individuals serve once a month on a rotating basis. 

  • CHANCEL bells

    Chancel Bells, for middle school age through adults, meets seasonally and rehearses on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. using our 5-octave Schulmerich handbells. Chancel Bells are coordinated by Marcia Granucci. 

  • Joyful noise!

    Joyful Noise is an energetic choir open to all K-4th graders in the community.  We rehearse on Thursdays from 3:30-4:15 p.m. in Fellowship Hall, October through April and learn songs for worship and special occasions. We look forward to having you join us!  Bring a friend! Joyful Noise is directed by Kristan Verveniotis and Grace Schulz. 

  • GRACE NOTES (Youth SINGERS)

    In music, a grace note is an embellishment or ornament that is printed a bit smaller than other notes. Trinity's Grace Notes, although a bit smaller, powerfully leads us in worship several times a year. We serve to reflect the grace of God though Jesus. These 5th-8th graders meet as needed on Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:15 pm. Grace Notes is directed by Kristan Verveniotis and assisted by Marcia Granucci.

  • Organ

    Trinity is blessed with an outstanding pipe organ.  Built in 1988, the three manual 37 rank Schantz contains 2,172 pipes.  This magnificent instrument is an important part of Trinity’s worship and music ministry and is known as one of the finer pipe organs on the Peninsula. Its balanced design easily lends itself to repertoire from all eras.

  • Piano

    Our sanctuary piano is an exceptional instrument.  Completely refurbished from top to bottom, this 1913 Mason Hamlin AA is truly a remarkable instrument with an interesting history.  Leonard Bernstein took his first piano lessons on it!
