In-person worship Sunday at 10:30 a.m. — The Holy Eucharist: Rite II

The service will be streamed on the Trinity Facebook page.

Thy Kingdom Come: A call to prayer The Trinity Chapter of the Daughters of the King invites the Trinity congregation to join us in in a prayer initiative called Thy Kingdom Come.  This program was initiated by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York of the Church of England in 2016.  Beginning on May 13 and ending on May 23, 2021, for 11 days, we will pray daily for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus.  This is a global prayer movement.  You can read more information and register (registering is not required) at thykingdomcome.global.

After the Ascension of Jesus, Mary and the disciples gathered and prayed as they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  In that tradition, between Ascension and Pentecost, we are praying that God’s spirit will touch 5 friends or family to respond to God’s call.  Pray privately in whatever manner is best for you.  If you have any questions, please contact Donna Coker (870-692-0445).
