Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.
I can feel His mighty power and His grace.
I can hear the brush of angels wings.
I see glory on each face.
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.

Adult Bible Study: January 18 at 7:00 p.m. / February 1 & 15. Lenten Education: For the Sundays of Lent, Fr. Phil will offer an inquirer’s class following the 10:00 service.  This is open to anyone new to the Church or any one who wants to know more about the history, structure and ministry of the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion.  This is also a very good opportunity for anyone who has questions of any kind about the Church to attend and ask their questions.  We will meet in the church during coffee hour.

Parnell will preach at both services that day and join us for coffee hour and discussion following the 10:00 service.

The church will provide coffee, drinks, and a sandwich platter.

Sunday, February 4 – Annual Meeting: ONE service this day at 9:00 a.m. The meeting will take place in the common Room following the 9:00 service.  We will gather for coffee and snacks before the meeting.  Please bring  a dessert or small dish to share with the parish for this event.

February 14th – Ash Wednesday.  Lent is quickly approaching, it’s early this year.  While we have enough ashes that we do not need anyone to bring palms for burning this year, we do need any with a fire pit or fireplace who is willing to burn palms to take them.  The altar guild has several bundles of old, dry palms which should be burned.  Any one willing to take some of these palms please talk with Fr. Phil.

Trinity Church is a wonderful church community.  We are old, young, diverse as to background in every way.  And we are a strong and loving church community.

As with congregants at all other Christian churches, the members of Trinity Episcopal Church are called to follow the Summary of the Law given by our Lord Jesus Christ. That means that we are to love the Lord our God with all our strength /and/ to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are to worship and to forge a genuine, welcoming and accepting community in the process. At Trinity Episcopal Church, we are always striving towards that end, and that means there is always a place for you in our midst. As we constantly invite new people into our fellowship, we are fulfilling our Lord’s Great Commission to the early Church: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19) We are a diverse group at Trinity. We are young families with children. We are retirees with children long grown. We are teenagers and singles. We come from a number of communities that surround Randolph. We come from a range of economic, social, racial and ethnic groups. We are life-long Episcopalians. We are Anglicans from other countries. We are former Roman Catholics and Protestants. We are people with little or no Church background. We are people who have been active in the Church all our lives. But there is one thing we all have in common: Somehow God has spoken to us in this place. We have found a home and we have experienced a genuine community here. And we are convinced there is a place here for you, as well. Come and see!
