Visiting Trinity

This congregation welcomes you no matter who you are or where you come from. We are Christ's people and this is Christ's place with its doors wide open.

If you are passing through, Godspeed. If you are looking for a worship home, stay with us. We invite visitors to join us, but most of all to return often.

Below you will find the answers to several common questions you might have before your visit.  We look forward to meeting you!

 

Trinity offers two Sunday morning services at 8:30 am and at 11:00 am.  Services last about one hour, sometimes a little longer on the first Sunday of the month when we offer Communion.

 

   Trinity Presbyterian is located on Blythe Street just west of downtown Hendersonville between 6th Avenue/Hwy 64 and Haywood St/Hwy 191.  Look up directions from your specific location.

 

Trinity has plenty of parking, both in front of the church and around on the side of the church building.  There are also many handicapped parking spaces for those who need to park closer to the entrance.  If it is raining, feel free to pull up to the overhang at the front door to drop off passengers.

 

   When you arrive at Trinity, you will be welcomed by greeters who are more then happy to answer any questions or help you find your way around.  Visitors are given name tags if they wish to help us get to know you better.

 

 
 

 Trinity provides a nursery for children under 3 years old with plenty of toys to keep them busy and caring, experienced staff.  We ask that you sign your child in and specify any allergies or special concerns when you arrive.  Nursery hours are 8:15 am to 1 pm.  

 

 

 

Trinity's sanctuary has three, fully accessible entrances.  Our sanctuary is arranged in an arc so that all seats have a clear view.  Ushers at these doors can help you find a seat if you need assistance. 

 

For those who have a hearing problem, Trinity has an  excellent sound system.  For those who wear hearing aids with a "T"  coil, and most hearing aids mow have them, we provide a neck loop that plugs into a small receiver that can be put in your pocket or placed on the pew next to you.  By switching your hearing aid to the "T" coil setting  the loop around your neck  feeds directly into your own hearing aid.  For those without a "T" loop in your hearing aids, or for those who do not wear a hearing aid, but need aid in hearing, ear buds are available.  The receivers and neck loops, and ear buds are available next to the main door, or an usher can assist you.

 

Bulletin

The weekly bulletin contains an outline of the service including all hymns and prayers.   A link to the week's bulletin is in the Resource menu on the Home Page.  Don't forget to check out the blue insert for upcoming church and community events.

 Music

Music is a large part of the worship at Trinity.  At both services our music director, Stephen Klein, provides organ music and accompanies the hymns.  The Chancel Choir joins in at the 11 am service.  Guest musicians of all sorts make regular appearances including soprano Amanda Horton, Jonathan Scales on steel drums and the Cullowhee Consort.

 

Kids Up

Just before the scripture reading, children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a brief children's sermon.  After this, the children are dismissed to the Fellowship Hall for the Kids Up worship service.  You can meet your children after the service in the Fellowship Hall - and stick around for coffee, cookies and fellowship! 

Communion

Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.  You may remain seated. Both the communion bread and wine are passed by servers.

 

 

 

 

   We hope that you will stay and visit with us after the worship service!  Coffee and cookies are available in the Atrium after the 8:30 am service and in the Fellowship Hall after the 11 am service.  Our friendly congregation would love to get to know you better and invite you to join us again.

 

 

 

Learning Hour is held at 9:45 am in the time between the two worship services.  There are Sunday School classes available for children 3 and up as well as a variety of classes for adults.  In the summer we bring in several excellent guest speakers for the Ohmann Lecture Series.  Learn more about specific classes and the topics they cover.
