Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What Do Lutherans Believe?
Lutheranism is a faith founded on Good News! Back in the 15th century, a priest named Martin Luther realized that there were significant differences between what he read in the Bible, and the practices of the medieval Roman Catholic church. He challenged these differences, and this was the beginning of what later became the Protestant Reformation. While Luther never intended to start a new church, he was committed to reforming the church so that the Good News of Jesus was central.
What is that Good News? We are forgiven, redeemed, and made right with God not because of our own actions or deeds, but because of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ! Through Jesus God’s love for all people has been revealed, and through faith we are set free to live and love as God’s people in the world.

Q: How do I find out if church services are cancelled due to inclement weather?
While it is rare that we cancel a service, should the weather be severe enough that you would question if we are gathering, please call the church office at 610-664-5503 where we will leave a recorded message if no one is in the office.
Q: Is a nursery available during the service?
Yes, we have child care available during our service, located in our Community Life Center. You can drop off your child(ren) either before the service or, should you need, at any time during the service.
Q: Does Holy Trinity perform wedding ceremonies or funerals?
Yes, Holy Trinity is available to officiate your wedding ceremony, or perform funeral services. If you have questions, call our office at 610-664-5503 and ask for our Pastor, Josh Ferris. Alternatively, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Is Holy Trinity handicap accessible?
Yes, Holy Trinity does have a lift in the back of our building where wheelchairs can be brought up to the main floor. This lift is accessed by the sidewalk on our Woodbine Avenue side of the church.
Q: What parking is available?
Street parking is available Sunday mornings on both sides of Narberth and Woodbine Avenues. This is usually fine for typical Sunday mornings. For larger events such as holiday services or funeral masses, St. Margaret’s Catholic church, just down the block on N. Narberth, allows us to use the back section of their parking lot. Feel free to contact the church (610-664-5503) if you are uncertain. We’re happy to direct you to the right spot.
