Getting Involved With Worship
One of the best ways to get to know people and have that homecoming feeling when you walk in the doors is to get involved! Everything that happens on Sunday morning and evening is the product of many, many people coming together to create and produce it, and most of those people are volunteers, just like you. You could be one of them!
We are always looking for new members for our choir! If you have been interested, now is the time to join. Rehearsals are at 8:30 a.m. in the Marfield Room on Sunday mornings. If you have any questions, please contact .
Our 10:30a.m. worship is a labor of love by many and you can dig in too. Helping lead worship is one of the ways you can be personally invested in Trinity and we hope you will consider it. Each Sunday we have people to read, lead prayers, serve as greeters, acolyte, prepare for and clean up after communion on the Altar Guild, serve communion as “Chalicers” and sing in the choir. It would be a weak and anemic worship indeed without the many people who provide leadership. The 8:30a.m. and 7p.m. are less labor intensive but both of them also need greeters to practice the hospitality that is so central to the community of Trinity.
Governing and Behind the Scenes
We are in the process of re-organizing the committees and structures of Trinity so that we can expand the capacity of our organization as we expand the size of our congregation. Trinity, like all Episcopal congregations, is governed by an oversight group called the vestry. At Trinity the vestry delegates much of its specific tasks to smaller committees and reserves its task of oversight for the mission, planning and policies of the program and ministry. Finance, Building, three Fundraising Events, New Member program and annual Stewardship appeal each have on-going committees composed of vestry members as well as at-large members. In addition, ad hoc committees are formed on an as-needed basis. When you want to get involved in this aspect of congregational life ask one of the clergy to sit down with you and explore your interests, talents and gifts to help discern the most authentic and life-giving opportunities for you.
Trinity Rising: Radical Generosity
Getting personally invested in the community of Trinity includes financial contributions. Even if you are exclusively a part of the web-community of Trinity (and thousands are), you can invest in Trinity. Your financial contribution is the yeast that keeps the community rising, the outreach expanding, the treasure of our buildings open and shared and the web community thriving. One of the core beliefs of Trinity is that the radical sharing of abundance is at the heart of what allows any of us to thrive spiritually. Because we care so much about this community and one another, the opportunities and challenges of radical generosity are embraced as the core of our spiritual practice.
We have three ways of giving: 1) Make a pledge and contribute the amount weekly, monthly or annually as works our best for you. 2) Instead of pledging make a goal for the year based upon your circumstances and a plan for meeting it, then simply contribute in accordance to your plan, or 3) give spontaneously throughout the year as the spirit and opportunity leads you. We have envelopes that can be sent to you with your own number on it so that we can give you records at the end of the year for IRS purposes, just let us know.
