Church Activities

Church Ministries

churchWe want you to feel connected at Trinity Church! That happens as you get to know the people and the staff at the church but, beyond that, it happens as you find your place to serve the Lord and make a difference in the lives of others. We have many ministries in the church that exist to serve those who attend our church, but they also provide ways in which you can be a part of serving others. Please contact the church if you would like additional information about any of these ministries. These important ministries include:

 

Alcolytes

church Acolytes assist in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles or "torches", assisting a deacon or priest set up and clean up at the altar, swing incense or carry the incense boat, hand the offering plates to ushers, and other tasks as requested by the priest and/or acolyte master.

Altar Guild

churchThere are still spaces available to sign up for candle or flower remembrances on Sundays during the 2017 calendar year. The charts for dates to choose are located on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall beside the kitchen door. Directions for completing the sign-up are given for your information. Checks and forms may be turned in to the office, mailed in or given to Clyde McKee. Due to an increase in cost from our suppliers, the price for an Aumbry Candle is $10 and flowers, $50. Thank you for your help in providing this finishing touch to our Sunday worship services.

EASTER LILIES
The Altar Guild is accepting donations for the purchase of Easter Lilies for Easter Sunday, April 16th. Cash or checks made payable to Trinity Altar Guild can be turned in to the office, mailed or given to Clyde McKee.

 

Christian Education

churchAnother year has come to close and I want to thank those who volunteered their time to prepare and deliver lessons. Thank you again to Lisa Donovan for leading the High School group. She has developed relationships with all these students and always has interesting discussions and lessons. Thanks also to Marjory Hall who always prepares a lesson that is surrounded by great discussion and stimulates thoughts and conversation. Although we will not have Sunday School during our summer break please keep these teachers in your prayers as they discern whether to
continue this service to the church. Going forward to next year at this point we will have just two classes the high school class and the Adult class. If things change this summer we will revaluate and add more classes if needed. Thank you all for your support and have a great Summer. Sunday school we start in September.

Nursery

churchSara Hardin is looking for Nursery volunteers for a calendar rotation. You would be responsible for the care of child/children who come into the nursery during the 10:00 service hour. You would also be required to clean up afterwards. Also notifies of any restocking of diapers, wipes, cleaning products, broken toys, etc. You would be responsible for getting the key 15-20 minutes before the service starts and staying the entire time in the nursery. This is to insure someone is in the nursery in case a parent brings a child back to the nursery during the service.

 

 

Pastoral Care

church Providing Pastoral Care will depend on communication from the parish coming into the church office to Pam Tupone or Rev. Gene Wayman or to the Committee itself. We cannot provide care for our parish without being aware of the situation and circumstances. Please let us know about parish concerns in a timely manner.

Other committee contacts: Glenda Ryan, Martha Averitt, Kathy Nobles, and Pat McKenzie.

Focus areas for pastoral care:
Providing visits, cards/emails or calls to those who may be socially isolated, preparing bulletin boards that would provide current parish events and activities, and serving as point of contact for parish bereavement.

With clergy, serve as point of contact for Parish Care-line to inform parishioners of illnesses, deaths, and situations of concern involving other parishioners, posting Pastoral Care membership to enable quick response to parish needs, serving as Greeters for Sunday visitors, and providing follow -up contact with visitors.

Stewardship

churchStewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Episcopal Church views stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.

Here at Trinity our faith community strives to reach these goals of responsible stewardship daily with financial gifts as well as the donation of time and talent. Please contact the church office for more information on how you can make a difference.

Youth Group

churchThank you to Susan Dickason and Durham Lewis for leading our youth group this past year. They are a small but mighty group. They have had great participation and we look forward to our youth becoming active members in church. We wish our two seniors Zach Cox and Allie Bedell good luck as they head out to a new journey this fall. Congratulations! Trinity goes with you in thoughts and Prayers as you move forward in life.
