So our roots go way back, but that and $1.95 will get us one cup of coffee. After years of decline with a big, magnificent building dominating our focus we have become a small band of sojourners looking to grow and discover a future with or without our present building. We are enthusiastically and passionately engaged in what we have called The Futuring Process to determine whether there are partners in the area that want to buy into our building, a business or organization that wants to purchase it out right, or some combination of the two. In short, we have thrown open the doors and are examining all avenues into the future.
We believe that through this process it will become evident which direction God is calling us toward. As that happens our creativity and abundant resources will provide us with the vision and means to go there.
We would welcome you to join us in this discovery. We are very excited to be on the cusp of new life!
Referred to elsewhere, it has become clear to us that Trinity is in the process of change along with much of the rest of organized religion in The United States. A massive, historic building does not go well with a small congregation and so we called The Rev. Cameron Miller to help us explore and determine how we will move into the future. He has described his role as that of a midwife and the vestry has devised a process to assist with that labor. We are inviting others to join us as we open ourselves to God’s best dream for us. Contact the church office to see where you might fit in.
Like all Episcopal congregations, we are led by a council called the “vestry.” It is an old British term reflecting the original cultural heritage of The Episcopal Church, which has since diversified and moved beyond its Colonial roots. Like the founding fathers and mothers of The Episcopal Church that also constituted the origins of the nation, Trinity democratically elects the vestry at an Annual Meeting and they, along with the priest and staff, lead the congregation.
A constellation of ad hoc committees form, change, die, and reform as needed to provide for coffee hour, pastoral concerns, program, and worship. You are very welcome to join in! Contact the parish office for more information.
