Rota for July 2021

Here’s the Rota for July 2021 at Trinity Lime Rock!

Trinity continues to worship both online and in person as hopefully we make our way past COVID-19. We are committed to providing both quality in-person worship and high quality online worship as well. The transition between our current form of online worship and livestreaming an in person 10:30 AM service is still being worked out, so this is a monthly instead of a quarterly rota.

Our main Sunday service continues to be online, on YouTube, beginning at 10:30 AM. In person worship is also available at 9 AM most Sundays.

The July 2021 rota is now available.

Thanks to all who serve!

July 21 Photos at Trinity Lime Rock

We’re calling these July 21 photos at Trinity Lime Rock although two of them were not taken at Trinity at all and were taken earlier that week!

Pastor Heidi was just back from a week as Chaplain to the wilderness camping group at the Diocesan Camp Washington, so we’re providing a bit of flavor of what that experience was like.

Sunday was also the Youth Sunday for July as well as being the hottest Sunday so far this summer. Hence the casual attire on most participants shown.

One moment that touched all of us. A lady who was not a parishioner, but who brought her much loved dog to us to be blessed when we had our annual Blessing of the Animals, sadly lost him this week. She brought us the blue and white pitcher of flowers from her garden to remember him — and we do!

Photos from July 14 at Trinity Lime Rock

Here are a few photos from Sunday, July 14, at Trinity Lime Rock.

We held Morning Prayer on Sunday since Pastor Heidi was at Diocesan Camp Washington serving as Chaplain to the wilderness campers. No priest? Normally we would call on supply clergy for the day.

However, we have a resource at Trinity that we were able to use instead. The Northwest Cluster of our Diocese held a training program for lay preachers this past year, and several from Trinity participated. Morning Prayer provides a wonderful for these trained homilists to “do their thing.” This week, our own Alexis Dorf was the Lay Officiant, and Danielle Gaherty was our Homilist.

It all worked perfectly!

What happened to Summer Sports? Well, fair question! We started with bocce, but the interest level just wasn’t there. So, the young people came into church for the last part of Morning Prayer, and then, during coffee hour, decided to try out their artistic skills in the courtyard!
