Our Midweek Lenten Series begins February 21 and continues through March 21, each Wednesday evening!
The evening is set up in 40-minute increments. 6:00 pm Soup Supper / 6:40 pm Series Discussion / 7:20 pm Worship in the Chancel. This year’s theme follows the five covenants used as part of the Rite of Baptism and Affirmation of Faith services. Each Wednesday will reflect upon one covenant:
- to live among God’s faithful people
- to hear the Word of God and share in the Lord’s supper
- to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed
- to serve all people, following the example of Jesus
- and to strive for peace and justice in all the earth
Soup Supper is provided by volunteers. There are sign up sheets on the parlor bulletin boards if you wish to contribute to the meal or can help setup/cleanup!
The Trinity Chimes for February – April 2018 is here! Check it out for information through Lent and Easter Sunday.
This Lent, we will discuss the five baptismal covenants. You’re welcome to join us at any time on a Sunday morning or Wednesday evening – all of that information is available in this newsletter edition.
On Sunday, February 4, Trinity will welcome Seminarian Ann Shade into our community in Christ. Ann is a first-year seminary student at United Lutheran Seminary, studying to become a pastor in the ELCA. As part of her formation, she is assigned to our congregation to try out her gifts and skills in a pastoral role. She will observe our ministry, build relationships, assist with worship leadership, education and visitation. Welcome Seminarian Ann! We are blessed to accompany you on your seminary journey.
In the case of inclement weather, information about schedule changes and cancellations are shared on our website, voicemail, and via email to those in our contacts via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the Pennridge School District calls an early dismissal, offices will closed and evening rehearsals and events are cancelled.
If the PSD closes, evening events will most likely be held but based on parking/sidewalk conditions.
If the PSD operates on a 2-hour delay, offices will open on regular time unless conditions warrant otherwise.
Executive Council members and staff will help events coordinators decide if/when events need to be postponed or cancelled due to weather. When at all possible, decisions about morning events will be made by 8:00 pm the prior evening.
The November and December 2017 Chimes is packed full of information! Be sure to check it out, share with a friend, and contact the church office so we can put you in touch with event coordinators.
A Trinity Chimes was published for September 17. Get your copy of the Fall 2017 newsletter here! Black and white copies are available at the welcome center in the parlor entryway.
Beginning this July, a Midweek Summer Series on Worship will be offered Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Chancel. Discussions will include exploring our own worship practices as well as those of Lutherans around the world, all while we consider, “What does worship look like,?” “What does worship sound like,?” and “How does worship engage body, mind, and spirit?” Our guide for these discussions is an ELCA resource CAN WE TALK: Engaging Worship and Culture, focused around the thought that we talk about worship because in worship we remember who and whose we are as God’s people. Bible study, discussion, and brief worship experiences will all be included. We hope you can join us July 5th through August 2nd.
Remember, Sunday worship is held at 9:30 am through September 3rd!
The first release of concerts for the 2016-2017 Trinity Concert Series listing is available. Concerts begin this year in late summer! Ongoing thanks to our patrons who support and maintain the series, and to the Endowment of Trinity Lutheran Church for their gift the past two years.
