Floral Memorials List

Generous parishioners and others frequently make a donation to Trinity to provide the funds for the Flower Committee to have flowers on the altar on Sundays. Usually these donations are in memory of a loved one or friend, or in honor of someone living — or just in thanksgiving. The customary donation amount is $50, but a donation in any amount is acceptable.

If you would like to donate for the flowers this year, the list attached will let you know what Sundays are still available — June is completely committed but there are remaining opportunities in future months.

Flower Memorials 2020

If you would like to make a donation for flowers, please call the office or e-mail Pastor Heidi to reserve a Sunday.

Thank you for thinking of Trinity!

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.

Easter II

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!!

Don’t miss the daily livestreams at 7 PM by our Music Director, Christine Gevert, of her meditations and improvisations on a hymn. Also on our Facebook page.  A different hymn every day, seven days a week!  Needed meditation music in today’s world!

Sermon from March 22, 2020

We are very happy to not only be able to bring you live-streamed Holy Eucharist on Sunday from Trinity, and Christine Gevert’s organ meditations each evening  during this pandemic, but also provide such things as the text of Pastor Heidi’s sermon only minutes after she preaches it!

Pastor Heidi - Lent 2019

A year ago, Pastor Heidi was preaching to us live from Trinity’s pulpit. Today, however,…..

Rota for 4th Quarter 2019

Here’s the Rota for the 4rd Quarter 2019 — the Autumn and Christmas Rota — at Trinity Lime Rock. The Rota, of course, is the schedule of who is on duty when to do what at Trinity: serve at the altar, usher, read, help with the young people, arrange the flowers or the altar, even count the collection.

To download a copy, please click below.

Thank you for all that you do at Trinity!

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!
