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.
Acolytes of all ages carry the church's processional cross, candles, or spirit sticks during processions in communion services. They receive the offering plates and communion elements from the ushers and may assist the clergy in preparing the communion table.
Members of Trinity’s youth choir develop their strengths as singers while becoming familiar with the rich tradition of church music—and having lots of fun! They rehearse each week and join the adult choir for 2-3 services each semester. The choir occasionally performs at other community events, and members enjoy other social get-togethers as well.
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.
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!
Eucharistic Ministers are lay persons who are licensed by the Bishop to administer the consecrated elements of the Eucharistic.
Lectors read the assigned scripture passages for each worship service. They’re usually sent each passage several days ahead of time, so they can review and practice it.
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 of hospitality.
