What to Expect
Dear Members and Friends of Trinity,
This Sunday is Trinity Sunday. For many the idea of three in one is confusing. Trinity is not a puzzle to be completed, nor a math problem. Come worship with us Sunday at 10am and explore the depth and breadth of God’s love given in the presence of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are:
Genesis 1:1-2:4a Psalm 8
2 Corinthians 13: 11-13 Matthew 28: 16-20
Prayerfully read and reflect upon these verses to enrich your worship experience.
+Christianity 101: This Sunday, following worship, we continue our conversation about the evolution of the Gospel; faith of Jesus, faith in Jesus, and faith about Jesus. How did the early church create their confession of faith through the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds. We limit the class time to 45 minutes.
+Thank You: Thanks to all who make Trinity work. Altar Guild, Worship Leaders and Ushers, Counters, Coffee Hour Hosts, Buffy, our Office Administrator, and the Vestry. We are engaged in several outreach ministries, including Jubilee Cupboard. We are mission driven and trust we will grow in Spirit and number.
Thank you for your continuing generous support of Trinity.
+Deacon Sunday: On Sunday, June 11, we welcome Deacon Pat O’Connell. The Diocese is affirming our Deacons, and Pat will preach and assist with Communion. We are blessed to receive her as another minister of the Gospel.
+Sunday Prayer List: If you would like to include the name of someone in our Sunday Prayers list, please let me know so when I write the prayers I can be sure to include them. Thank You.
“A future not our own.” Oscar Romero is honored by the prayer written on his behalf by a pastor who lifted up Oscar’s courage. Romero was Archbishop of El Salvadore, and in 1980, was murdered as he celebrated Communion in a chapel in San Salvador.
Some congregations in America are anxious about the
future. Attendance dwindles, income shrinks, and maintenance of the property and cost of clergy , all impact the future of the congregation. We cannot go back to the 50’s or even the 90’s when we had robust attendance and Church School for children. So, how does a congregation become sustainable?
There is no simple answer to this question. My belief is that a congregation rooted in the Gospel and motivated by the call of the Holy Spirit will thrive. The hope is a congregation moves from surviving to thriving.
Some who enter our beautiful Trinity Church comment on how they “feel the Spirit” here. We are blessed with a congregation grounded in the Gospel and motivated by the Spirit. We are a welcoming, inclusive, and generous community. May those who come share our joy and love. Thank you all for your openness and support.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
