We would love for you to join us on a Sunday morning.
We meet at 10:00AM each week at the corner of
West 28th Street and Humboldt
in Uptown, just off Hennepin.
Hope to see you soon!
Sunday mornings at
Grace-Trinity are a time that our community gathers together for worship and fellowship. We tend to be traditional in our worship style, but our approach is casual and informal. Some people dress up, others wear jeans. We want you to feel relaxed, so come as you are, however you are most comfortable.
Our worship service includes new music and classic hymns, liturgy that represents our Presbyterian and Baptist traditions, and a brief sermon. Children are always welcome in worship, but nursery care is provided during the service. Following worship, children are invited to Kidspace, our after-church program with snacks, a story, and craft project.
What to Expect
When you visit Grace-Trinity, we hope to make you feel as welcome as possible. To help you get to know us better, we’ve put together the visitor information you'll find below:
- Expect a warm welcome! Not too hot, not too cold, just the right temperature of welcome! We love having guests and love seeing new faces. Greeters will be standing by the door to hand you a bulletin. They can answer any questions you have about our church and worship service.
- Dress however you feel most comfortable. We have a bunch of retired folks (who tend to dress up a bit) and an increasing number of young professionals (who tend to wear jeans) - wear whatever you like. Some people bring in their coffee from home or from Isles Bun and Coffee (right next door)... Feel free to do the same!
- Our worship is fairly traditional, in that it follows a standard Reformed liturgy, but people will tell you it doesn't feel stuffy or formal. In addition to our choir, we often have special guest musicians and soloists to help lead our worship. We love to sing and have a great variety of classic hymns and newer songs.
- We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month. Everyone is welcome to participate, children, too. We honor parent(s)' decision about when it's the right time for their kids to begin participating in the sacrament.
- Speaking of children, we offer nursery care provided by trained, background-checked workers and volunteers. We know that some kids aren't ready to leave mom and dad yet, so you'll also find a special family pew with crayons, small toys, and age-appropriate books.
- We enjoy a community meal on the second Sunday of most months. All are invited to join us, whether they've brought a dish to share or not... there's always plenty of food!
- You'll find a greeting pad along the center aisle of each pew. If you'd like to add your contact information, we'd love to be able to be in touch. We send one email each week with information about what's happening in the life of our church.
- We hope that you'll stick around after worship and join us for some coffee and refreshments in the back of the sanctuary. Community is important to us and we love to connect with old friends and make new ones. Daniel, our pastor, is usually standing near the back of the church once worship is over, so please say hi and introduce yourself!
