IN THE NAME OF CHRIST we welcome all who worship here today. Please quietly begin your preparation for worship at 10:50 am.

REMEMBERING OUR BAPTISM A bowl of water is placed at the entrance of the Sanctuary to remind us that we enter the church through Holy Baptism and that we are sent into the world to serve others with the love of Christ. As you leave worship today, you are encouraged to mark your forehead with this water and with the sign of the Cross as a reminder of this calling.

NEW FRIENDS are always welcome! If you are new to Holy Trinity or without a church home, please fill out a yellow welcome card and place it in the offering plate. For more information visit our website, holytrinityelca-wythe.orgOur website is updated regularly with current information and announcements.

COMMUNION Welcome to the Lord’s Table. All Christians who believe that Christ is present in the Sacrament and are properly prepared in their own church are invited to participate. Communion will be at the altar. All children who are not yet prepared for communion are invited to come to the Lord’s Table for a blessing.   Gluten free wafers and grape juice are available upon request. Please ask the pastor or communion assistant if you prefer one of these options.

CHILDREN ARE WELCOME IN OUR WORSHIP SERVICE and are strongly encouraged to be present with us. Children and their families are especially encouraged to sit on the front two pews where they can see and where the Children’s Message is presented. An unstaffed nursery is available if it is needed.   Rainbow bags for children 2 - 7 years old are available in the Narthex.
