O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Worship Ministries. Volunteers Needed!

As we move forward and gather for future services, please keep in mind all the Worship Ministries that help to create such wonderful services here at Trinity Church.

We are looking for volunteers for our Altar Guild, Usher and Flower Ministries. No previous experience is needed. If you would like more information, please contact Barbara Roos in the office and she will connect you with the ministry leader.

A/V Guild

After taking a step back from recruitment to continue to refine the system, we are once again seeking volunteers to be a part of the A/V Guild. Don’t worry about your level of technical skill. If you can press a button on a remote control, then there’s a place for you on the team. If you would like more information, would like to volunteer, or would like to come watch the a/v guild at work on a Sunday to get a sense of what they do, please be in touch with Jake Troiano or Casey Rosseau.

Please email office@trinityhartford.org or call 860-527-8133 ext. 204 and Barbara Roos will provide contact information for Casey and Jake.

Trinity Book Group

For its next gathering, which will be in September, Trinity's Book Group has chosen The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go from Here by Hope Jahren. In concise, highly readable chapters, the author takes us through the science behind the key inventions—from electric power to large-scale farming to automobiles—that, even as they help us, release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere like never before. She explains the current and projected consequences of global warming and the actions that we all can take to fight back. All are welcome to attend this meeting, which will be September 24th, 7 pm, which is expected to be in-person! Location TBA.
