The Altar Guild is responsible for preparing the church for all services. This includes Sunday and other worship services, weddings, and funerals. Two members are scheduled together on a weekly rotating basis. The time commitment is minimal - it basically includes setting up the altar before each service and cleaning up after each service. Serving on the Altar Guild is a quiet and meditative way of serving God as well as giving of your time and talent.
The volunteer Casserole Brigade provides meals to Trinity Church members who need assistance during illness or other crises. A casserole may/may not be homemade or a one dish meal. Brigade members deliver one meal a day two or three times a week as necessary. Typically, a volunteer provides a meal one day during a family's need. Consideration is given to scheduling volunteers within their home area.
On the recommendation of the Rector, Chalice Bearers are licensed by the Bishop to serve for a term of three years. The appointed group administers Communion on a rotating basis at the 8 and 10 a.m. services, the 2:00 p.m. Main Line Nursing Home service, and at other special services as requested by the Rector.
Children are an integral part of our life here at Trinity. Our Childrens Ministries program offers a variety of activities that play an important part in our children's Christian formation.
The children meet for one hour each Sunday to participate in singing, learning Bible stories, and sharing our Episcopal faith. You can be one of the adults who will grow through serving, loving, and teaching a small group of children. Responsibilities include teaching every other month, class preparation time, attendance at teacher training, and involvement in Childrens Ministries activities.
CHILDREN'S OUTREACH CLUB:
This is an opportunity for the children to reach out to others in the world and our local community. They meet on the first Sunday of the month after the 10:00 a.m. service. Some of the projects are: making gift bags for the Navajo Nation, blankets for children in shelters, and birthday party bags.
Children in grade 3 and up have the opportunity to participate in the 10:00 a.m. service by being a torchbearer. They also have the opportunity, on the first Sunday of each month, to serve as lector, usher, and intercessor.
