Membership Means Ministry
All members of the Church are called to share in the ministry of the Church, according to their gifts. The ministry of lay persons is to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever they may be; and, according to the gifts given them, to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world; and to take their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church. We invite you to become a member of Trinity, everyone is welcome!
There are four ways to become a member of Trinity:
Any person who has received the Sacrament of Holy Baptism in the Episcopal Church or in any other Christian Church may become a member of Trinity. Simply contact the church office and let us know you wish to become a member.
Letter of Transfer
Any person who has been a member of another Episcopal church may become a member of this parish by indicating to the church office that a Letter of Transfer should be sent to their former church.
Confirmation or Reception
In the Episcopal Church it is expected that all adult members will, after appropriate instruction, make a mature public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and will be Confirmed or Received by a Bishop of the Church.
Baptized persons who have been confirmed by a Bishop in a Christian Church with the historic episcopate (such as the Roman Catholic or Orthodox Church) or by a Bishop of a Church in communion with the Episcopal Church (such as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) are, after appropriate instruction, Received by a Bishop into this Church.
Holy Baptism is administered to adults and to the children of parents who are members in good standing of Trinity, or another Episcopal church. We celebrate Holy Baptism at the Easter Vigil, Pentecost, All Saints Sunday, on the feast of the Baptism of our Lord, and on other Sundays as scheduled by the Rector.
