Some of the most popular services involve special events for children. Each December the children of the Church School stage a tableau-style Christmas Pageant. Lights, costumes, music and children all combine for a sweet, spiritual, and moving interpretation of the Nativity story. Children narrate the story, and the congregation joins in singing beloved Christmas hymns.
Another popular service is the blessing of the animals. People bring their pets and farm animals to Trinity for a special service. Usually held outdoors, in poor weather the entourage retreats indoors, ably handled by Trinity’s sextons.
Twice-annual Parish meetings provide an opportunity for Church School children to socialize while their parents meet and discuss church business. Lunch, entertainment and supervision are provided.
And of course the annual Easter Egg Hunt brings out the best in dress as the children chase for eggs on the Green—along with squirrels, both on the Green and on Trinity’s northwest stained glass window.
Other special events for families to share are scheduled throughout the year. Watch for announcements in periodic editions of Still Small Voice and weekly eNews.
