Worship with Trinity Church on Pentecost in Three Ways – Gathering in person in the Sanctuary at 9:30 AM; praying virtually with our Livestream at 9:30 AM; or gathering in the Garden at 11:15 AM! Please join us.
Friends, our scripture for Pentecost from The Book of Acts begins this way:
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.”
How amazing that Pentecost is the first day we will re-gather in our historic Sanctuary – to receive God’s Spirit ‘together in one place’! Equally amazing is that we continue to have the capacity to gather online and outside as well, according to our and your comfort as we ease pandemic restrictions.
Last Thursday, the map of COVID numbers in Newtown changed dramatically, to a level well within the guidelines set forth by our Diocesan Bishops for safe indoor gathering. We also saw new CDC guidance about the efficacy of vaccines.
We affirm that we are all in different places of comfort, and we encourage wearing of masks for the indoor service in this transitional time. Children and folks with various health concerns may not yet have access to vaccines; we are not all in the same place of safety. If you are not ready to come to the Sanctuary, that is just fine – we offer beautiful options for you as well!
For communion we will offer bread, the Body of Christ, at both the 9:30 and 11:15 services.
