    Visiting Trinity

  • Our Service

    Sundays at 9:30am at the Hinsdale Seventh-Day Adventist Church

    What is your Sunday worship service like?

    Okay, we admit it, we're a bit eclectic, but we like it that way! We want to hold onto the rich treasures of the past that God has given his church, but we hope to do it in a way that feels alive and meaningful to people today. So that means on one hand that our service includes some things that might feel more traditional, (like creeds and hymns and the Lord's Prayer). On the other, our service generally has a more informal (people dress fairly casually) and contemporary feel. The one consistent conviction that underpins our entire service is the centrality of God's Word. What God says in the Bible directs what we say, sing, pray, and do. To get a better feel for what all of this is like, take a look at our service order or visit our YouTube channel to watch our most recent service.

    What Covid precautions are you taking?

    The safety of our congregation and visitors is important to us, and so we are taking the following steps:

    1. Before the Service: Everyone wanting to attend is asked to register for the service ahead of time. Please also check for symptoms before attending. If you have a fever or other Covid-like symptoms, or if you know you have been recently exposed to someone with Covid19, please instead join us via our YouTube livestream.
    2. Masks: we're asking all attenders to wear masks while indoors. If you forget one, don't worry! We have extras at the door, along with plenty of hand sanitizer.
    3. Seating:  We're keeping our attendance below 25% of building capacity (it's a large building!), allowing us to have every household sit more than 6 feet apart from each other. When you visit, a friendly greeter will instruct you about where you may sit. (Cheerful round stickers on every third pew with the words "Sit Here" will give you a clue).
    4. Ventilation: We're keeping multiple windows open to maintain a steady flow of outdoor air. With the heat being on, the temperature stays fairly comfortable, but you might want to bring a sweater.
    5. Changes in Our Service: Though we normally love welcoming each other with handshakes and hugs, we've removed the time of greeting from the service until the pandemic is over. We also have shortened the service (with us now singing only two songs). And communion is now served in prepackaged, germ-free kits.

    What to do with my kids?

    During this pandemic season, we are not offering childcare. However, your children are welcome in the service, no matter what their age (we're used to the noise!). There's a back area with two crying rooms if ever you need to get away with your child for a few moments.

    How long will the service last?

    The service lasts about an hour. If you're able, we'd love to have you hang around after the service so that we can have a chance to meet you!
