"We are bonded together in a covenant relationship with Jesus Christ, the Lord of our lives. We seek to grow as disciples of Jesus by worship, study, prayer, and service so that we may love God and one another and bring the Good News of Christ to those beyond our parish family."
Please join us at 10:30 on Sunday morning, or at any other scheduled events, classes, or studies listed on this website!
"Thrust out a little from the land," (Luke 5:3) and founded upon a rock, may it ever point the way to Heaven and allure men and attract them, win them and fit them and train them for the Temple that is not made with hands." -- Annie Clarkson, 1896.
l would like to recommend the following article from an independent Episcopal-oriented weekly journal called The Living Church. Dr. Philip Jenkins (raised Roman Catholic, now a practicing Episcopalian) is a religious historian and observer of religious tends in modern society. The following article gives his assessment of the place of Christianity in the world today.
Philip Jenkins' observations are both 1) encouraging -- Christianity is growing rapidly in the world, and 2) sobering -- Christianity is disappearing in former areas of strength, especially Europe and the leading nations of the British Commonwealth, Canada, New Zealand, etc. What about the U.S.? While secularism is a obviously growing force in America, the U.S. is unique in the West for the continued vital presence of Christianity.
As we approach July 4, it is worth reflecting on our identity and vocation as Christians in America. Why is it that Christianity continues to thrive in America -- despite a strongly secular environment? What can we do to be effective witnesses of the life-giving power of Gospel and living presence of Jesus in the Spirit?
This week Trinity will celebrate Independence Day, as we do each year, with a special outside service on Sunday. Becky MacKellar has gathered an ensemble of eleven musicians, and has meticulously worked up musical arrangements for hymns and anthems that fit into the musical idiom known as "Americana." Invite your friends to this festive occasion of worship.
Worshipping outside, in plain view of the wider community, reminds us of the public character of our faith and identity as disciples of Jesus. It challenges the modern assumption that religion is just a private matter, and allows us a chance to bear witness to those around us.
