2021 Dillard Forum

2021 Dillard Forum

Dr. Charles A. Gillespie, Assistant Professor of Catholic Studies at Sacred Heart University

Save the Date: October 24-25 Trinity will host the Dillard Forum. This year’s topic is Theology & Theater.

The arts are important.  They captivate and inspire. Our 2021 Dillard Forum will feature Dr. Charles A. Gillespie, Assistant Professor of Catholic Studies at Sacred Heart University, Fairfield CT.  With a background in performing arts as well as in theology, Dr. Gillespie is uniquely positioned to offer an engaging and thought-provoking look at both our faith and belief as well as popular expression and art.

Trinity Co-Rec Softball

Trinity Co-Rec Softball

Trinity is forming a co-ed softball team for this summer.  Games will likely begin at the end of May or the beginning of June and continue one night per week through the summer.  In the past, games have been played at Quioccasin Middle School on Tuesday nights.  This year, the structure of our league is a bit uncertain, so we are waiting to learn the night and location(s).  Softball is a great way to connect with other members throughout the church.  Make it a family affair and bring the kids to watch you play!  If you are interested, contact Paul Brooks at jpaulbrooks@gmail.com.

Holy Week Worship

Holy Week

Maundy Thursday, April 1 at 7:00 PM online.
On Holy Thursday, we remember the supper Jesus shared with his disciples before his crucifixion, when Jesus washed the disciples’ feet and instituted the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Footwashing is a powerful symbolic response to the Word, dramatizing the servanthood of Jesus, both on the night before his death and in his continuing presence in our midst. Trinity invites you to join a “Foot Washing Service for Home.” Please prepare a bowl of water and a clean towel for the foot washing service.

Good Friday, April 2 at 7:00 PM a service of Tenebrae online.
Trinity will be providing an online Tenebrae Service on Good Friday, April 2 at 7:00 PM. Pastor Larry also invites you to participate by gathering 7 candles for your family in your home (to blow out after each reading).

Winter Weather Decisions

Winter Weather Decisions

For weather related information and updates, please visit trinityumc.net/weather.

Even though our building is basically closed because of the pandemic, we still must make decisions related to opening and closing based upon winter weather conditions.

The Trinity Preschool will follow closing announcements from Henrico County Public Schools.

Even in this virtual environment, school systems will be making winter weather closing decisions.

For Trinity staff, community groups, and vendors who supply services to Trinity, we will basically follow Henrico County Public Schools closing announcements.

However, there is a slight difference. If everything comes together properly for snow removal, Trinity might be able to reopen quicker. This all depends upon our ability to clear our sidewalks and parking lots. If we can clear these areas and safely get people into the building, then we might be able to reopen a bit earlier than a large school system.

Winter weather could also impact the broadcast of Sunday worship services. This would be true if it is too dangerous to bring in Trinity staff or if we had a power outage.

As in the past, we will communicate closing and schedule adjustments via our website, social media, phone message in the church office, and local news media outlets.

If you have additional questions, please e-mail Bill Pike: bpike@trinityumc.net
