What to Expect

Dear Members and Friends of Trinity,

The good news is, God does not give up searching for us. We are found, but may not even realize it. On Sunday, September 25, Trinity will worship with Morning Prayer led by lay people. We are blessed by their leadership.

+Blessing of the Animals:  On Sunday, October 2, at 9:45am, we will bless the animals. We celebrate St. Francis Sunday. We will meet outside in front of the church.  Then, at 10am, we will experience the leadership of our Bishop. He will preside, preach, and will receive one person into the Episcopal Church. Following worship and coffee hour, he will meet with the Vestry.

+Thank You for your continuing generous financial support of Trinity. We are blessed to be a blessing.

And thank you to those who serve on Sundays, especially those who do our video.

+Watch for my article on depression, in the Ware River News under the heading, Life Together.

    We have been coming to Maine for 41 years. It is our sacred space and we are blessed with good friends and beautiful places to stay. Some of our friends are very ill so it is timely that we are here.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve Trinity and for this time away.

Blessings to you and yours as we continue to journey with Jesus. Pastor Randy Wilburn,  Bridge Pastor

The Bishop will be presiding the Service on October 2nd.  Along with the Bishop, we will also have Organist Kell Julliard and Trumpet player Sheldon Ross joining us.  Sheldon Ross is an active freelance performer in The Pioneer Valley and throughout New England. He enjoys making music in many genres, from musical theatre, orchestral, chamber music, to R & B and jazz.  Sheldon has appeared numerous times as a guest soloist with The Holyoke Civic Orchestra, The Old Post Road Orchestra and is currently a trumpet faculty member at The Northampton Community Music Center and Principal Trumpet for The Keene Chamber Orchestra .  In his spare time he has a teaching studio, and balances his time between performing, teaching, teambuilding, and fathering.

Prayer for Ukraine: As we witness the horrific events in Ukraine, we turn toward each other and turn to God in prayer. We seek a peaceful resolution to the destruction and death we see. We pray for wisdom of our world leaders. We pray for comfort and relief for so many who have lost loved ones. We pray for those who stand for justice and peace and refuse to give into the threat of extermination. For most of us this is new. Not many of us were alive or remember the 1940’s in Europe, but now we have an idea of what that was like. We pray for an end to war. More than ever, we need to come together and be the Beloved Community God has called us to be. May God lead us into the future and show us how God can make “all things new”. -Prayers Ascending,  Pastor Randy Wilburn, Bridge Pastor

Trinity Episcopal Church welcomes you! When you join us for worship you will be greeted and given a bulletin that will help guide you through the order of the service. Episcopal services are based on The Book of Common Prayer which will be the red book in your pew.

During worship you will be able to follow along from the bulletin with the corresponding page numbers in The Book of Common Prayer. There will be several opportunities where you can enjoy or join in singing hymns. Music and words for the hymns are found in the blue hymnal in the pew.

Episcopal worship is centered around Communion, also known as The Holy Eucharist. All are invited to come forward and receive the bread and wine during communion, or if you would prefer you can come forward to receive a blessing by the priest or simply remain seated.

Services start at 10:00am on Sundays and typically last about one hour.

After service, please join us for downstairs for coffee hour in Morrill Hall. A chairlift is available if needed.

If you would like more information about the Episcopal Church or how to join or get involved please see a church member or send an email to secretary@trinityware.org.

Trinity’s mission is much more than Sunday Services.
