Newcomers Lunch

Sunday, January 14, 1 PM

What:

If you are a visitor, new attender, or anyone who wants a chance to talk with Pastor Matt and other leaders to learn about Holy Trinity, this is a great way to do it! This lunch is Q&A driven, and is an opportunity to learn who we are and what we do here at Holy Trinity.

Newcomers Lunch vs Membership Class:

The Newcomers Lunch is Q&A driven, and is intended to give a more general introduction to who we are and what we do here at Holy Trinity. This is a chance for you to get to know us, and for us to get to know you.

The Membership Class goes into the theology and history of Holy Trinity and of Anglicanism in general. This is a more comprehensive class on our collective and foundational beliefs, for a deeper understanding what membership at HTAC is all about.

What to do Next:

Please RSVP so that we can plan food accordingly! You can sign up online, in the Fellowship Hall, or by emailing Dillon!


Membership Class

Sunday, January , 3-6 pm

What:

Seeking membership or just wanting to know even more about HTAC?  Pastor Matt has scheduled a membership/discovery class for January  (Sun) 3 pm to 6 pm.  This class, along with meeting the other membership requirements allows, but does not require, you to sign a Membership Covenant.

So seeking membership or not, this is an excellent class for learning more about HTAC and is highly recommended for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of our church, along with those wanting to qualify for voting in the annual meeting in January each year. (This is the final class before the 2018 Annual Meeting. The annual meeting will be Sunday, January 21, 2018.)

An Open Invitation for Prayer and Coffee

Tuesday Mornings at 9:30

What:

You are invited to drop by any Tuesday morning at 9:30 for prayer, coffee, and fellowship. We pray weekly for our Holy Trinity family and friends who request prayers. We also love to hear about prayers that have been answered.

By stopping by you don't have to commit to regular visits; there is no obligation to attend each week. However, we'd be delighted if you discover you'd like to join us often! 

Prayer is vital. It can seem so one sided and passive, but, in reality, it affects the spiritual realms in ways we cannot see or sense. That’s why the devil is so determined to distract us from doing it.

What to do Next:

You can come by Holy Trinity at 9:30 am on any Tuesday mornings, or if you need more information contact Barbara Osborne at wosborne@comcast.net


Quiet Bags Are Available for Children During Services

What:

We have bags in the entry of the sanctuary for the young children who stay in service. Please feel free to grab them and return the bags at the end of service. They are geared toward the pre K - 2nd grader.

What to do Next:

Feel free to grab a quiet bag for your child during the service! Also, parents, please look around your house to see if any child has walked home with a bag, we are missing a few.
