Worshipping God is the heart and soul of our community. We proclaim the sacred words of scripture, listen for a faithful application for today, and partake of Holy Communion. Nourished by Word and Sacrament, we are strengthened for service in our homes and communities.

Trinity has a very active knitting ministry which provides knitted and crocheted items of comfort and care including prayer shawls and squares, baby blankets and lap blankets. All items are blessed before they are given to those in need. Our knitting gathering has felt inspired by the book “Knitting Into the Mystery” by Susan S. Izard and Susan S. Jorgensen. Here is an excerpt: “Our experience of the power of the Prayer Shawl Ministry is an experience of the living God. We are engaging in a simple act of compassion that God is calling us to. Our knitting weaves us, our hearts and souls into the truth of God’s love. God’s compassion has a life of its own. By giving away the Shawls, we are being swept up into God’s energy without even knowing it was happening. It is delightful to watch love unfold, to let forgiveness melt our hearts, to laugh at the joy being shared and to knit into the mystery.” Members of Trinity and their friends are invited to participate in this holy work. The group meets on the second Wednesday of most months at 10:30am in Millett Hall and knitters who cannot attend the meetings are invited to support this ministry as they can. Men and women are welcome in this ministry as well as friends who would like to share in our fellowship.
LEMs assist with distributing communion. LEMs typically serve the chalice during communion but at times might be asked to distribute bread.
St. Julian’s Guild is the Trinity chapter of the ECW. The Guild is open to all women of the church and their friends. Each month, a program of interest is presented, refreshments are served and fellowship is shared. Special events include a holiday luncheon, a Lenten meditation program and a spring luncheon to benefit Bishop Anderson House, a chaplaincy program supported by the Episcopal Church. Members meet at 12:30pm in Millett Hall on the third Thursday of the month and all interested persons are welcome.
Lectors proclaim God's word by reading scripture and the Prayers of the People during worship.
Ushers help our worship happen in an orderly fashion. They greet people at the doores, provide bulletins, take up the collection, assist during communion, and pay careful attention to the needs of those gathered at worship.
