Eucharistic Ministers are lay persons who are licensed by the Bishop to administer the consecrated elements of the Eucharistic. Members of this ministry usually administer the consecrated bread at services where a priest is presiding.
On the first Sunday of each month,members of this ministry bring an opportunity for worship, prayer and Holy Communion to parishioners who are unable to attend regular church services.
Music is an integral part of our worship at Trinity. We recognize that music makes present in tangible and intangible ways the reality of God's presence in our lives. Our parish places great emphasis on the thoughtful inclusion of music within our liturgies. Members of the Trinity Choir meet on Thursday evenings at 7 pm for practice and sing and lead congregational singing at the 10 am Sunday service.
If you like to sing, consider joining the choir!
The Worship Committee is made up of our two resident clergy, our four Worship Leaders, the chair of the Altar Guild, the Music Director and the Senior Warden. The Worship Committee reflects on the effectiveness of our worship and develops and implements our worship schedule.
Members of this team work behind the scenes to set up the church for Sunday services. Generally a less experienced person works with a more experienced person. Members of the altar guild need to know all the parts of the church, the church seasons and colors, the names of the vestments, linens, and sacred vessels, and the most widely used church symbols. For a typical Sunday, it takes about half an hour to get everything ready for a service.
Members of the Pastoral Care Team attend to the needs of the parish community. Pastoral Care Team members visit members of our parish who are sick, or homebound, in special need of support, or who at times may feel disconnected with the community. Whatever the need, pastoral care always includes prayerful concern for the well being of others.
There are many ways individuals can serve Trinity during Worship. Here is a list of just a few. If you're interested in serving during worship, please give the church office a call.
Ushers greet people as they enter the church for worship and assist during the service, with the offering, at communion and following the service. This is a vital ministry, one of hospitality and supporting our worship.
Crucifers carry the church's processional cross during processions at the beginning and the end of the serv ice. Members of this group may also assist the clergy in the administration of the sacraments during Holy Communion.
The mission of the Bread Bakers is to proclaim God's glory by preparing the altar bread that wil become the Body of Christ at our Lord's Table. If you like to bake, consider joining the Bread Bakers.
