Coronavirus Updates and Resources
In the day’s ahead, please pray for God’s protection, be wise in your contact with others and keep a close eye on your neighbors. This is not a time to shrink back in fear but to lean on the Lord and learn to follow him in new ways. We will be in touch over the days ahead to let you know how we can grow and serve together during this unexpected and challenging season.
Join Us for Holy Week.
We have many opportunities to prepare our hearts for Easter Sunday as we walk together toward the cross. Palm Sunday’s recorded video service is on the Sermons webpage. Beginning Monday through Thursday evening at 5pm, you’ll receive a video meditation from John. On Good Friday, Holy Trinity joins with other local Anglican churches for an audio-only service at noon. Then on Easter Sunday, we will rejoice in our risen Lord online through a recorded video service. Everything you need to know (video and audio services and service bulletins) can be found on the Sermons webpage.
Online Giving Is Available!
While checks or giving through your online bank bill payment platform are the preferred giving methods because the church incurs the least amount in fees, we welcome online gifts. We accept electronic payments from your checking account or payments via debit or credit card. To create your online giving account, click the GIVE NOW button. Once on the Holy Trinity giving page, click Login/Sign Up in the upper right-hand corner and follow the prompts for your online giving account. Please email Anne with any questions about online giving.
Staying in Touch Video Messages
Tune in for our series of video messages from John and Claudia on our Holy Trinity YouTube channel. They bring words of encouragement to equip us for the days ahead and share important information for us as a church family. You can view all past video messages here! And subscribe to our YouTube channel so you are alerted right away when new ones are posted.
Resources and Other Ways to Stay Connected
We have created a churchwide playlist on Spotify called “Songs of Hope.” This is an open, collaborative playlist where you can add your favorite songs. Go for it and let’s make this a Holy Trinity community playlist!
Sign Up for 8@8
Come be part of a global community of people who are praying for 8 minutes at 8pm in their time zone, literally wrapping the globe in prayer. When you sign up, you’ll receive a scripture for each day and a hymn or praise song to complement your prayer time. Sign up now and invite friends to join! Find 8@8 on Facebook, too.
Pray Through the Psalms
Make reading the psalms part of your prayer discipline during Lent – and beyond. Together we will praise God in the morning, acknowledge him at noon and petition him at night. Download your copy of Forty Days with the Psalms, developed for us by Rev. Claudia Greggs.
