About Us

TRINITY CHURCH

Empowering ourselves to Serve others

Who are we?


A church community of faith focused on serving God manifested as three persons, namely, as Parent, as Child and as Holy Spirit.


We strive to be students and disciples of scripture, church tradition, reason and subjective experience. We humbly submit to truth that is the outcome of proven experience and excellent scholarship.


We seek to serve God and neighbor with our total selves, that is, with mind, heart and body.


We strive to be mature in our relationships, seeking to preserve the oneness and unity of the community by living out the command to love unconditionally, thereby manifesting the fruits of the Holy Spirit, which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These are our guiding attitudes towards others especially in these modern times when various issues threaten our unity, common bond and love for one another.


Our Common life


Individual prayer and study life is encouraged, but our true strength is the coming together for common worship. At worship we collectively strengthen one another by our presence and participation in the orderly balanced structure of the service; the reading and understanding of the scriptures, the affirmation of our collective belief in the church's Creed, the common prayers, the rejoicing of the presence of God in the commemoration of the last meal (the Eucharist), and the covenant of commitment to go into the world to serve God in our neighbor.


We meet regularly to learn in the weekly Bible reading and discussion group, the various interest discussion groups, and the adult and children's education programs.


We minister incidentally at the places God has strategically placed us- our homes, our neighborhoods, our recreation and work places. We also minister directly at the cottage meetings as the Holy Spirit directs. In these meetings, participants are raised and trained to minister the Spirit.


We intentionally strategize and plan to serve our neighborhood by providing programs. At present our facilities are used for ballet classes and community meetings. Future programs will include AA meetings, girl scouts and affordable housing.


Approach to Scriptures


We encourage private reading for guidance and inspiration. We strongly advise that our personal and private learning be subject to the community of faith as the scriptures direct. We understand that the community of faith includes the local church, Diocese and the world community. We believe that this strategy keeps us humble, loving and righteous especially in our attitudes towards those who are different from us. We emphasize study of the scriptures over the practice of merely reading the scriptures.


Worship


Worship at Trinity engages the heart and mind. We strive to do justice to both. We aim at honesty and integrity. In all that we do in worship, we aim to please God rather than self. We come together to worship God, to learn, to have fellowship with the brethren and to be empowered to serve others with the gift of love.


Our expectations from each other


  1. Be regular and on time when the community meets for worship.
  2. Participate in the worship by being an usher, acolyte, layminister, chalicist, chorister, etc. Training classes are offered for these ministries.
  3. Be a leader- in the vestry board, children's education, adult education, committees, etc.
  4. A participator in at least one of the programs- bible class, interest group (supper club, movie club, discussion groups, men's group, women's group), cottage prayer groups.
  5. Serve through church's outreach programs.
  6. Support the church's work financially.

"It’s big for phase 1, and definitely it will grow every month and every year, and it will be beneficial to both countries," said the crown prince. "We have been a brotherly country, a friendly country to Pakistan.

NASA posts image of ghostly blue objects, deep in the cosmos

NASA posts image of ghostly blue objects, deep in the cosmosWhen a star is born, a chaotic light show ensues.  NASA's long-lived Hubble Space Telescope captured vivid bright clumps moving through the cosmos at some 1,000 light years from Earth. The space agency called these objects clear "smoking gun" evidence of a newly formed star — as new stars blast colossal amounts of energy-rich matter into space, known as plasma.  Seen as the vivid blue, ephemeral clumps in the top center of the new image below, these are telltale signs of an energy-rich gas, or plasma, colliding with a huge collection of dust and gas in deep space. As NASA says, these blue masses are transient creations in the cosmos, as "they disappear into nothingness within a few tens of thousands of years." Bright lights inside a nebula. Image: ESA/Hubble/NASA/K. Stapelfeldt These blue clumps are traveling at 150,000 mph toward the upper left direction (from our view, anyhow). In total, there are five of these ghostly clumps, hurtling through space.  SEE ALSO: Opportunity rover's last picture is as grim as it is dark NASA doesn't identify the new star itself, called SVS 13, perhaps because it's obscured by thick clouds of cosmic matter. This collection of dust and gas is part of a distant nebula, which are often the remnants of exploded stars swirling through the infinity of space. WATCH: Ever wonder how the universe might end?

Polish PM nixes trip to Israel after Netanyahu Holocaust 'comment': govt

Polish PM nixes trip to Israel after Netanyahu Holocaust 'comment': govtPolish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has cancelled a visit to Israel for a high-level summit, a government spokesperson told AFP on Sunday, after uproar in Poland over reported comments by Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu about the Poles and the Holocaust. Netanyahu -- who was initially quoted in Haaretz newspaper as saying that "The Poles collaborated with the Nazis" -- has been condemned in Poland for appearing to accuse all Polish people of cooperating with Germany during World War II. Warsaw has long been at pains to point out that Poland, which was occupied by Nazi Germany, could not have and did not collaborate in the Holocaust although individual Poles may have done so.
