Coronavirus Updates and Resources
We’re Returning to In-Person Worship on July 19!
We are so excited and look forward to seeing you again in our sanctuary – to offer our praise and thanksgiving to the Lord together. In our efforts to serve and care for you and our neighbors well, we have adapted our worship service in a number of ways. Please review the resources below to find out what is new and what has changed, including mask wearing, safely distanced seating and cleaning protocols. Thank you for following these guidelines as we learn together how to worship safely.
We realize that some of our congregation will need to continue to worship from home. We will miss you and invite you to worship with us online as you have been doing. Our services will be posted to the website for easy viewing or listening.
Sign Up for the Sunday Worship Service of Your Choice: 8:45am or 11am.
We are requiring signups in advance of each service so that we can maintain a safe environment and our maximum safely distanced seating capacity of 100 people per service. If your plans change, be sure to cancel your spot so that someone else may attend in your place. A waiting list is being maintained. Simply click on the service of your choice below to sign up.
Sign Up for Our Mid-Week Holy Communion Service.
Holy Communion will not be offered on Sundays. A modified 30-minute Holy Communion service will be offered on Mondays and Wednesdays beginning July 13 and 15 at noon in the sanctuary. It is limited to 25 people and advance signups are required. We will add other weekday services as demand necessitates. Please click on the service of your choice below to sign up, and be sure to cancel if your plans change.
Responding as God’s Ambassadors
We are grieved and overwhelmed by what is going on around us. Our wounded city needs healing, and we know that as God’s people we must be part of this work. But how?” Please read John’s June 1, 2020 letter as he responds to Mr. Floyd’s tragic death and the ensuing unrest with a message for us all, as well as a pastoral letter jointly written by our Bishop Steve Wood and three other Anglican bishops.
How to Reach Our Clergy and Staff
In our efforts to care for and serve you well, Trinity House and the church sanctuary are closed to visitors without an appointment. All clergy and staff can be reached by calling the church office at 919.833.4202. You may also find their email addresses and alternative phone numbers on the website. For more specifics, please reference this reopening overview document.
Sermons, Talks and Other Resources
Our worship services continue to be posted to our website. You will find everything you need on the Sermons webpage. You’ll also find our special online Trinity Kids worship service for your children – preschoolers though 5th grade!
In addition, you will find past sermons and talks as you scroll down the page. Lastly, under the Resources tab, we have blogs that cover a variety of topics, recommended books and healing prayer testimonies to encourage you in your walk with the Lord.
Worship Through Giving
As we all work out our new routines, just a reminder that Holy Trinity relies on donations to operate. While checks and giving through your online bank bill payment platform are the preferred giving methods because the church incurs the least amount in fees, we welcome your online gifts. To give online, click the GIVE NOW button below to take you to the Holy Trinity giving page. Then click Login/Sign Up in the upper right-hand corner and follow the prompts for your online giving account. To explore other options for giving, visit the GIVE page. Please email Anne with any questions about giving.
Staying in Touch Video Messages
Tune in for our series of video messages from our clergy and staff on the Holy Trinity YouTube channel. They bring words of encouragement to equip us for today and 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.
