Annual Parish Meeting
March 17, 2024 10:30 am
Nominations for Vestry have been received and submitted to prayer. The Vestry is the chief oversight board of the church. Working with the Rector, the Vestry is the agent and legal representative of the parish for all matters concerning its corporate property and finances and the relations between the clergy leadership and the wider parish. It meets monthly throughout the year.

At our Annual Meeting on Sunday, March 17, 2024, the parish will elect 2 new Vestry members to serve a three-year term. Vestry nominees must be at least 18 years old, confirmed or received by a bishop of the Episcopal Church, members in good standing, and regular financial contributors to the church for the past year.

It’s important that all members be present at the Parish Meeting. Please make every effort to be there as we cast our vision, and make important decisions for the church.
Welcome Visitors - What to Expect

The Gathering

When you arrive, an usher will hand you a bulletin outlining the order of worship. Feel free to sit anywhere you'd like. Worship begins with the ringing of the bell followed by a processional hymn that you will find in the blue hymnal. We then pray together asking God to prepare our hearts and minds for worship.

Liturgy of the Word

We then listen to God's story throughout the ages. It includes readings from the Old Testament, the book of Psalms, letters of the New Testament, and one of the four Gospels. We stand during the reading of the Gospel and the minister and acolytes process down the aisle to symbolize Jesus' ministry of being among the people. Following the reading of the Gospel, we hear a sermon inviting us to reflect on the Scripture lessons. Next, we respond to what we have heard by affirming our faith in the historic Nicene Creed, which has served as the foundation for Christian belief since the 4th century. We then offer prayers. After our confession, the priest proclaims God's forgiveness of our sins, to which we respond by sharing the peace of God with another by shaking hands. After the Peace, we share some announcements and pray for those celebrating a birthday or anniversary in the coming week.

The Liturgy of the Table

We begin the liturgy of the table by offering the fruits of our labor to God with the offering. While we are deeply grateful for any offering, it is not expected nor required of guests. We continue with the Eucharistic Prayer. During this prayer, we sing a short song of praise called the Sanctus, You may hear a bell ring when the bread and wine are lifted. After the priest blesses the bread and wine we join in saying the Lord's Prayer. The priest then breaks the bread to symbolize Christ's body broken for us. All baptized Christians of any denomination are invited to receive Holy Communion. We encourage those who are not baptized but want to receive communion to speak with the priest about being baptized. The service ends with a blessing from the priest followed by a hymn that sends us out to be the hands and feet of Christ.

Holy Trinity is a community of faith showing God's love for all people by welcoming, equipping, and sending them to serve in the name of the Lord. If you are looking for a church where the Gospel is preached, the Creeds are embraced, and where children and youth can grow in faith; come and worship with us. We are an Episcopal church in the Orthodox tradition.
