Easter Pictures

We captured some wonderful Easter pictures this year at Trinity Lime Rock, but we want to start off with one of the Easter egg hunt on Sunday following the 10:30 AM Festival Eucharist.

However, we’ve got more, beginning with Friday evening’s Good Friday observance, continuing with activities on Saturday during the day, and the Great Vigil of Easter in the evening, and, of course, Easter Sunday.  Those photos and photo albums are found on our Facebook page.

Here are direct links to each:

Click HERE to see a short video of the choir warming up for the Good Friday service.  You’ll also find a few photos of that particularly moving service in our Facebook newsfeed.  Click HERE to see photos of Saturday daytime activities at Trinity.  Click HERE to see more photos of the Easter vigil, and click HERE to see (and hear) a portion of the Exsultet from that service.  And click HERE to see some photos of the 10:30 AM Easter service.

If you dig a little deeper in our Facebook page you’ll see lots more than Easter pictures, because we are a year-round church, one with a choir every Sunday and activities for young people every Sunday, year round.

Here’s one more photo of the Easter egg hunt from Patrick Sullivan and the Lakeville Journal:

Thanks to Patrick Sullivan and the Lakeville Journal for this Easter egg hunter in a hurry!

Rota for first quarter 2018

Here’s the rota for first quarter 2018

What’s a rota?   It’s the schedule of who, among our many wonderful volunteers, performs what roles in our Sunday services.

Our Verger prepares this (with a whole lot of input from the volunteers themselves) a week or two before each quarter ends and gets it “out there” so that people can plan their schedules as far in advance as possible.

Without further ado, here’s the rota for first quarter 2018!

You can also see a copy posted at Trinity, or pick up a printed copy there as well.

Thanks to all of our volunteers for all that they do for Trinity!

Instructed Eucharist

Instructed Eucharist at Trinity

November 19 was the Youth Sunday for November, and, in addition to the young people assuming most of the roles in the service, they took on a significant part of the instructed Eucharist we hold from time to time.   The instructed Eucharist is basically a series of planned interruptions of the service in which readers provide commentary about what has just happened and about what is going to happen next.  We don’t conduct them frequently because the narratives do disrupt the flow of the service, but when we do, most people find it to be a learning experience.

It’s not just for the young people that we hold these, by the way.  Most adults can still learn something about the way our principal worship service is conducted and why it is the way it is.  For that reason we’ve decided to provide the script for this year’s instructed Eucharist  so you can read over what you heard on Sunday.

Bulletin for Trinity Sunday 2017

Here’s the bulletin for Trinity Sunday 2017!

Trinity Sunday is the day we celebrate our birthday, so it’s an even bigger day at our house than it would otherwise be.

There will be special music, and our annual Trinity Sunday picnic follows the service.  All are welcome, there will be hot dogs and hamburgers to grill, and if you could bring a dish to share (side dishes, salads, desserts) it would be great.

Without further ado, here it is:
