Adult Christian Formation

The Casual Adult Education Class on Sunday mornings is a place where adults can gather to discuss their faith and to learn from each other.  It’s casual because it is expected that people will participate in the sessions that interest them when their schedule allows but that there won’t be any guilt forced upon people who can’t make all the sessions.  And it's education because it gives participants an opportunity to learn more about the many different aspects of their faith.

The Casual Adult Education Class meets in the Lounge, near Café Trinity from 10:20 – 11:00 a.m. when Sunday School is in session, giving a good opportunity for parents to learn while their children are doing the same thing.  Participants may grab a cup of coffee, something to eat, and then join the class.  Classes often focus on some aspects of theology or current issues presented in a compelling and comprehensible way using videos and questions from the ChurchNext Series.  The true learning takes place through the conversations among participants as they help each other learn about and grow in their faith.  The class is facilitated by volunteers from among the participants.

The Order of the Daughters of the King

The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is a lay order for women dedicated to prayer, service, and evangelism for Christ's sake. Members of this Order follow a Rule of Life incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service by reaffirming the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation. A Daughter pledges herself to lifelong prayer and service and to strengthen the spiritual life of her parish. Trinity’s chapter, The Sisters of St. Jane de Chantal, meets the first and third Wednesdays of each month.  Some of the activities of the chapter in the past have included a Valentine luncheon for widows and widowers, a retreat at Richmond Hill in Richmond, VA, donating personal care items, stationary and stamps for Grace Inside Prison Ministry, and sponsoring a family friendly Advent Event of seasonal crafts for parishioners of all ages.

 

Evangelism

 

Healing Prayer Team

Members of our Healing Prayer Team pray with and for worshippers during communion at many of our Sunday Eucharists. All prayer requests are kept under the strictest confidence. The Healing Prayer Team meets on the second Tuesday of the month to strengthen and deepen our prayerful work. Training happens gradually by inclusion, prayer, and study. If you feel the call to serve, please

 

Worship & Liturgy Committee

The Worship and Liturgy Committee meets in the Rector's office on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 pm to discuss ways to enhance the worship services. All are welcome to attend the meetings.

 

Trinity Musicians

Music provides a heartbeat for many churches and Trinity is no exception. The choir at the 11am worship service helps lead the congregation in singing and provides an anthem on alternate Sundays. There is a pick-up choir at the 9:15am service on the first and third Sunday of the month. Our 8am service is blessed with Instrumental/Organ music on the 2nd and 4th Sunday’s of the month. Additionally, we have a “Trinity Band” that engages the spirit and the soul on the First Saturday of the month. Periodically the Sunday school shares their talents and learned songs and choreography at the 9:15 service. If you have talents you want to share, contact our Minister of Music, Denise Symonds, at dsymonds@trinity-fredericksburg.com. We would love to hear from you.
