Shipwrecked VBS

July 16-20

Registration has begun for our Vacation Bible School this summer. Sign up using the forms in the entryway, or sign up online here!

Our program will run from July 16 to 20 and will offer a great week of fun activities and powerful learning for our VBS kids.


VBS Volunteer Training

June 24, july 1, july 15

Volunteers for our Shipwrecked VBS program, which starts on July 16, have the opportunity to receive special training to equip them for their roles.  The first training will happen on Sunday, June 24, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.  The training will involve child abuse awareness and prevention training, as well as VBS-specific materials and discussion.  If you have any questions or if you are interested in participating in the training, please see Jonathon Thigpen or email him at holytrinitychildmin@gmail.com 


Sound Tech Team Training

WHAT:

In the near future, we will be conducting a training session for people interested in serving the church on Sunday mornings as a member of the Sound Tech Team.  This team serves a vital role every week during Sunday services.  Truly, without them we would not hear the music or the inspired words of our pastors and the liturgy; we would not have words and lyrics to follow during the services.

Next STEPS:

We need more volunteers for this important role on Sundays.  If you are interested in working with the Tech Team on the sound board, supporting the Sunday service, please send an email to Ben Holsteen to sign up for the training session.

Prayer Requests for our Sister Parish

Please join us in prayer as we at HTAC stand shoulder to shoulder with our sister parish in Nyagatovu and for the Kibungo Diocese.

  1. We have received the news that 2 sub parish church buildings in Nyagatovu have been closed due to government regulations. Please pray for unity among the people and for wisdom, strength and guidance for Bishop Emmanuel and the clergy as they plan and pray during this time of change and challenge.
  2. We have undertaken to raise $6,000 to support the building efforts needed in the Nyagatovu Parish.  Please prayerfully consider supporting our brothers and sisters in Rwanda through a financial contribution to meet this critical need.  You can donate by sending a check to Holy Trinity Anglican Church with "Rwanda" noted on the memo line.
  3. The Rwandan genocide took place 24 years ago. Please pray for continued reconciliation among the people as they continue to work together to move beyond this most tragic time of loss and suffering.
  4. We pray for the families of our sister parish... for physical, spiritual and emotional health.
  5. We pray for peace, joy and community worship that strengthens faith and for close fellowship in the sub parishes.
  6. We pray for the impact and the growth of the Mother's and Father's Unions as they come alongside their communities offering support, encouragement, leadership and fellowship.
  7. We pray for spiritual growth in our Lord Jesus Christ for all of our brothers and sisters; that their faith would be strong and their journeys filled with the presence and joy of the Spirit.

Newcomers Lunch

Sunday, JULY 8, 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 Mark!

Other upcoming Newcomers Lunches (Tentative):

  • Sunday, September 16, 2018 - 1 pm

Seeking membership or just wanting to know even more about HTAC?  We have scheduled a membership/discovery class for July 8 (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.
