Four Steps to Membership
Trinity Episcopal Church is a vibrant community of faith and we
invite you to share the Christian life with us. People come to us from
many different traditions.
We worship together regularly. We minister to one another in times
of joy and in times of trouble and sorrow. We enjoy fellowship
together, which deepens the bonds of affection among us. We study
and grow with one another, and we reach out to those in need with the
Good News and with our lives and resources. All are welcome.
If you wish to become a member of Trinity Church, we invite you to
follow these simple steps:
First, inform us of your intention.
Please arrange for a short meeting with one of the clergy. Tony
and Nick would like to get to know you and answer any questions you
might have about Trinity or about membership. You may arrange a
meeting by calling the church office at 978-369-3715.
Second, worship with us regularly.
We worship at 8 a.m. in the Chapel and 10 a.m. in the Church on
Sundays, and at 7 a.m. in the Chapel on Tuesdays. Worship is
central to our life as Christians. Please join us for worship.
Third, commit yourself as a member of the parish.
Please complete the Parish Information Sheet: “Database Update.”* The
information is used to include you on our mailing list, record your
birthdays and anniversary. If you have special interests or
skills, we invite you to tell us that as well so we may help you become
assimilated into the life of the congregation.
Fourth, offer your pledge for our ministry together.
Once you claim Trinity as your church home, we encourage you to
participate in the life of the parish by making
a financial pledge or
recordable gift in support of our many ministries.* Prayerfully
complete the pledge card and mail it to the Church Office. Your pledge
or gift is kept confidential. Christian giving is inspired by gratitude
to God. We give from generous and thankful hearts, recognizing that all
is God’s and that we are the stewards of God’s bounty.
Taking these four steps
you have joined Trinity Church.
May God bless your spiritual journey with us,
as God has blessed us with your presence.
We welcome all people who seek the love of God, without
discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic
background, socio-economic status, marital status, disability, sexual
orientation, gender or age. We welcome all people on the basis of
our Baptismal Covenant in which we promise to “seek and serve Christ in
all persons,” and “respect the dignity of every human being.”
* The Database Update form and Pledge Card are found in the Membership
Packet, available in the church office or at the Welcome Table.
or three times a year, visitors and new members of Trinity are invited
to an informal gathering at a parishioner’s home. These events give
people an opportunity to meet others new to Trinity as well as an
opportunity to meet established members and clergy. Visitors will
receive an invitation in the mail prior to the event.
Our next Brunch
