Rota for Second Quarter 2021

Here’s the Rota for Second Quarter 2021 at Trinity Lime rock!

Trinity continues to worship online due to COVID-19, but as more people have been vaccinated, and as the level of infections continues to decrease (cross fingers on that!) we anticipate resumption of small in-person services, beginning with Easter. What will happen after that remains to be seen.

Our main Sunday service will continue to be online, on YouTube, beginning at 10:30 AM.

The Revised Second Quarter Rota is now available.

Thanks to all who serve!

Easter II at Trinity: video and sermon

Here’s Pastor Heidi/s sermon from the second Sunday of Easter — so-called Low Sunday — in 2020 — in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Of course we were worshiping remotely.  You can watch the service if you’d like.

If you would like to read Pastor Heidi’s sermon, you can download it here:

Easter II

Short-term rota

In accordance with the instructions of both the Bishop of Connecticut and the Governor of Connecticut, Trinity will be worshiping online until at least May 20, 2020.  However, that doesn’t mean that we cannot have parishioners participate actively in the services!  Thus, a number of parishioners will be doing the readings for our online services using Zoom.

Attached is the rota showing who will read when.  We will issue a new rota when the Coronavirus situation becomes clearer and as we receive further directions.

To download the new rota, please click below:

Remember to follow our Sunday services on our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/trinitylimerock/

As well, our Music Director is offering daily improvisations/contemplations on the organ at 7 PM, also on our Facebook page.

 

Easter 2020

The Easter service this year was unlike any before in the history of Trinity — but the last time we dealt with a pandemic was 100 years ago, with the Great Influenza of 1918 – 1920, and we did not have the internet to offer a different way to “do church” — nor the medical and epidemiological knowledge to know how to handle epidemics.

This year there was no Easter Vigil, and no 8 AM Holy Eucharist.  The 10:30 AM Eucharist, however, reflected the four weeks experience we have now had in virtual services, and, if you missed in, it is well worth watching.  You can do it here:

One final note:  many people like to drop something extra in the offering plate on Easter.  If this sounds like you, Please click HERE to go to the page where we help you do that, even in these virtual times.

During the week, be aware of our offerings including Bible study and Book Group, and we are very fortunate that Christine Gevert is providing us with a 15 – 20 minute organ meditation/improvisation based on a hymn every evening at 7 PM.  You can find them on our Facebook Page.

We wish you a joyous Easter Season!!

Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020 at Trinity Lime Rock

Palm Sunday 2020 at Trinity was, well — different!!   A wonderful virtual service, and one well worth viewing again, it incorporated the efforts of Pastor Heidi, Christine, Gordon, Linda, and a dozen readers of the Passion Gospel, who contributed their part via Zoom.
