    How We Come Together in This Unusual Summer

    On Sundays this summer, we're gathering to worship in smaller services (around 50 people) on the church lawn at 9AM and 10:30AM. If you'd like to join us (and we hope you do!), here's what you need to do.

    • Register in advance for either the 9AM or 10:30AM service using this simple form.
    • On the morning of, check you and your family for any Covid19 symptoms, such as fever, loss of smell, and coughing. If you have any of those symptoms, we ask that you stay at home and join us online.
    • Bring lawn chairs or a blanket for seating.
    • Print out the service order. If you register before Saturday morning, this will be emailed to you. It also will always be available on the homepage of our website by Saturday morning.
    • Because we are outdoors and spaced out from each other, masks will be optional for those attending the service.

    Social Distancing

    Your Safety Matters to Us!

    Using cones, we have designated zones for each household to sit by that are at least 15 feet apart from each other. As you arrive, an usher will help you know where to sit.

     

    Additionally, we have eliminated some parts of our service which involve direct contact, such as the greeting time and the passing of the offering. And for communion, we are using prepackaged juice and wafers, which will be served by people wearing masks and gloves..

    Can't Come in Person?

    Join Us Online

    We know that not everyone will be able to join us, especially since we will be unable to provide childcare. For this reason we will be livestreaming our 9AM service so that people at home can join us. You can find it on our YouTube channel.

     

    Also, If weather is inhospitable, we will simply have a 9AM online service instead. A "rainout" will be announced on Saturday night so that you can plan ahead.

  • What about when the weather is bad?

    Unfortunately, not every Sunday is beautiful and sunny. It's Chicago, after all. In that case, we will meet indoors. Here are the guidelines for our indoor worship services in this Covid season.

  • Our Purpose

    To experience and extend the life-changing love of Jesus in our homes, workplaces, and communities

    It's All About Jesus

    Our only true comfort in life and in death is that we belong to Jesus, whose death has changed everything. Everything we do must center on Jesus. Our weekly worship is shaped by His gospel. Our teaching focuses on His word. We seek to love each other well because we belong to His body. These convictions have led us to be members of the PCA.

    Experiencing His Life-Changing Love

    Jesus accepts us in all of our mess, but he doesn't leave us there. He changes us. We as a church together are pursuing that change process. From our youngest to our oldest we are committed to intentional discipleship. If you join us, our commitment is that you will not remain the same.

    Extending His Life-Changing Love

    Jesus is engaged in a worldwide mission to make all things whole, restoring the world back to God. We as a church are participating in that work. Bringing clean water to orphans in Haiti, providing clothes for refugees, and even rebuilding broken marriages all are an expression of Christ's redeeming love.

  • Our Convictions

    What Trinity Believes

    What do we believe? Well, how much time do you have? The quick answer is that we are confessionally Reformed, carefully biblical, and passionately Christ-centered. If you want to go deeper, check out our Discovering Trinity page, which outlines some of what we teach and our ministry philosophy. If you want to go even deeper (and we know that some of you do!), you can check out the Westminster Standards, which are the statement of faith of our denomination, the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
