Trinity's Drive-In Theater Worship

Pile the kids and the family dog into the car and join us for our fun worship service at the Hilltop Drive-In Theater in Houlton, WI!  The Drive-In is just across the Stillwater bridge:  head east over the bridge, drive to the top of the hill, and look for the signs (it's about five minutes from downtown Stillwater).

The Drive-In service features both contemporary and traditional music, with an eclectic mix of musicians, throughout the summer.

You're welcome to stay in your car (the service is broadcast on the radio) or you can set up a lawn chair and enjoy the warm sun on your face.  We even have coffee and scones before the service, so breakfast is covered! Dress is casual (yes, we've even seen some folks in PJs), the service joyful, and the fellowship warm and welcoming.

Worship at Trinity

Trinity's summer indoor service honors the rich heritage and deep roots we have as Lutherans. Each week, we feature guest musicians, who encompass an array of musical styles, to inspire us in connecting with God.

Similar to our 9 a.m. service during the fall and winter months, we follow a pattern or liturgy that has been developed over 2000 years: Gather, Word, Meal, Sending.What makes worship traditional is the garb that is hung on it: the style of music, choirs, organ, instruments, assisting ministers, processions, etc.

We believe in our increasingly secular world, the church needs to be more than just a historical witness to the faith. We are the church and we must act as contemporary witnesses to the gospel, bringing its reforming power into the world using the riches of our past, present and the future.

Worship Times September through May

Sunday - 9 a.m.


Trinity honors the rich heritage and deep roots we have as Lutherans. For hundreds of years those roots have shaped our worship, and ultimately, our lives. Each week, as we plan worship and music, we search for God in “what is old and what is new.”

We follow a pattern or liturgy that has been developed over 2000 years: Gather, Word, Meal, Sending.What makes worship traditional is the garb that is hung on it: the style of music, choirs, organ, instruments, assisting ministers, processions, etc.

  • A beautiful space with artistic expressions of seasonal themes
  • A video screen displaying words to songs and prayers, freeing up our whole selves to express our worship
  • A contemporary band and vocalists leading a variety of songs, new and old, upbeat and quiet
  • A message from the heart and from the Bible, elevated with humor and grace
  • Babies, children and adults being baptized, surrounded by the love of our community
  • A weekly opportunity for ALL to receive the communion bread and wine that represent the body of Christ living in each of us

Personal

Though congregational worship is by nature a public expression, we gather as individuals as well, to celebrate God, who knows our name and our very soul. We believe that if we each can create ‘worship space’ in our busy lives, allowing God to take center stage, we will have a personal encounter with God’s holiness, and come away transformed by and connected with the holy spirit. We are dedicated to bringing all worshipers into a closer, deeper relationship with our Creator.

Passionate

God has a passionate love for each one of us, supremely demonstrated by Jesus Christ, through his life and his death upon the cross. Through worship we are called to a passionate response to God’s love – through our songs, prayers, thanksgiving, and service to others. We are committed to developing passionate worshipers in the world.

Purposeful

As a congregation, we’ve spent a great deal of time talking about being “on purpose” in our lives. Worship is no exception. We plan a variety of worship experiences: each one designed to draw a different audience; each one geared to speak of God in a little different way; each one reflecting the hope of the gospel and the promise of baptismal grace.

We never want people to just to go through the motions of worship, but rather to discover that our core purpose in life is to worship the One who has made us. We strive to bring purpose to everything we do in the worship service, from the team-led planning of music and message, to the intentionally warm, friendly leadership and hospitality people experience in our gatherings.

So, go ahead! Check out all our worship opportunities. Try them all on for size! You’re bound to find something that makes God more real in your life than when you first arrived - it’s a promise from God!
