Photos from November 18, 2018

Facebook has become a little difficult to use, as well as being perhaps less than credible, so we are experimenting with putting our weekly photo albums directly on our website.  Let us know how you like it!!

Trinity Times for July and August

The Trinity Times for July and August is now available.  You can pick up a paper copy at Trinity, or download it here (we recommend the download because it saves on paper and copying costs, and you can get it and read it right now, but whichever works for you works for us!)

People occasionally ask why we have a weekly e-mail newsletter, the Trinity Update, and the Trinity Times too.  (by the way, you can sign up to receive the Trinity Update each Wednesday if you wish by going  HERE— and you don’t need to be a Trinity parishioner to receive it) but the answer is that the format of the Trinity Update is too brief to be able to convey much information besides who/what/when and where — there’s very little room for  “how” or “why”.  The Trinity Times covers things in more depth and hopefully answers these important questions.

One topic you’re read about in this issue of the Trinity Times is our backpack project. This photo is from 2014, showing the ingathering of the backpacks

06-17-2018 4 Pentecost Youth

Since it is Youth Sunday, parents and young people may want to review the readings ahead of time just in case your young people (or YOU!) are asked to do one of the readings.

Even if you are NOT a parent or a young person, you may want to review it before you come to church on Sunday, or you may choose to follow the service from your personal electronic device instead of the paper bulletin the ushers will hand you.

Sunday will be the Youth Sunday for April, so you may want to download the bulletin and read the readings through ahead of time in case you are a young person and are assigned one to read in church.

Or, you may want to review the way the service runs.

You can download the bulletin now at home, or you can download it at Trinity and follow the service on your personal electronic device.

However you use it, we hope we see you on Sunday at Trinity!

New Junior Instructor

Sunday marked the graduation from Sunday School at Trinity of one of our oldest students and her appointment as the new junior instructor in Sunday School.   Our Sunday School, which meets year-round, operates on the “one room schoolhouse” approach, so our young people  age three and up work together in a collaborative environment.   You can read more about our Sunday School and our young people HERE.

One of the younger young people read the somewhat tongue-in-cheek proclamation to Helen and to the congregation on Sunday (which was the Youth Sunday for March), but several parishioners have requested a copy of it.  Hence, here it is!

Helen graduation proclamation

We are truly proud of Helen (her last name is redacted since she is still a minor) and we as a parish are truly fortunate — delighted, actually — to have her as the junior Sunday School teacher!

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.
