Bulletin for Sunday December 17

 

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.

Sermon for October 15

We’re happy to bring you Pastor Heidi’s sermon for October 15, 2017, which also happened to be a Youth Sunday (we have one of these every months — on these Sundays the young people basically run the service — and they do a very good job at it!)

Pastor Heidi’s sermon for October 15 also mentions a statue of Jesus on loan to Trinity from the Diocese.  Here’s a photo of it at Trinity:

 

Want to know more about this statue?  You can find out about it in Pastor Heidi’s sermon for October 15!

We also celebrated the installation of new LED floodlights to improve the light level at the crossing in place of old, inadequate incandescent lights at that location

 

 

Sermon for March 26

Here’s Pastor Heidi’s sermon for March 26, the fourth Sunday in Lent.

This is also known as “Mothering Sunday” — marked by the appearance on the altar of the only altar flowers we see during Lent.   Those who attended coffee hour today also had an opportunity to enjoy some traditional Simnel Cake — traditionally served this Sunday.

It was a Young People’s Sunday as well, so our readers and our second chalicist were all young people — and they provided us with acolytes as well.
