Important Message

In an effort to protect our community from the COVID-19 virus, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church will be closed Mar. 13th until the Bishop gives us the ok to return.  This means all activities, services, meetings, etc will be canceled for that period of time. At that point, church leaders will reevaluate resumption of normal activities. This is in response to a directive from the Bishop and a recommendation from the Presiding Bishop.

You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

 

Many blessings, Meredith Scott - Youth Minister & the EYC Advisor Team

Our Mission
 
To know Christ and make him known 
through an inward journey of faith
and an outward journey of service

EYC Definitions and Details

 

EYC Meetings at the Youth House

Sundays – 5:30pm to 7pm – Meet us at the Youth House. Dinner provided! All 5th graders through 12th graders are welcome. Youth don’t need to be a member of the church to participate. Bring friends. Please be sure an EYC registration is on file before attending. You can register online at holytrinityeyc.com

 

EYC Dinners

We enjoy fun and fellowship as we eat together. These meals are graciously provided by our EYC parents. You can sign up for a date and work with other parents to prepare a meal for our group. Sharing a meal is an important part of our program as we celebrate measl among friends, just as Jesus did with his disciples. We coudn’t do it without parents help. Each family needs to sign up for at least one date. If cooking isn’t your gift, how about a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

 

EYC Adventure Sundays

On Adventure Sundays, we will meet at the location of Adventure (not Youth House) at a specified time. Parents will need to provide transportation unless otherwise stated.  Dinner will not be provided on those nights.

 

Breakfast with Friends – Serving our Community Neighbors

Several years ago, the Holderness Family, wanting to help the city’s homeless, would make hundreds of burritos and deliver them by bike on Saturday mornings. Many churches, schools and other organizations in the area have now joined in to help. Currently, the program is being run through the Tiny Houses organization.

Our youth make and freeze burritos during youth group on Service Sundays. We then meet at the Youth House at 7:45am and head to Center City Park to hand them out. Tweens need a parent. Dates for the fall are the second Saturday of the month for October, November, and December

 

Hot Dish and Hope – Serving up a Dish of Hope and a Hot Meal

Through StepUp ministries, Hot Dish and Hope gives us the opportunity to put our faith into action by serving dinner and a “measure of hope” to those in need. Volunteers help prepare the dining area, pass out dinner, and clean up.  Meet up with other HT volunteers at 5:30pm in the Mullin Life Center at First Presbyterian Church in the 700 block of S. Greene Street, just down from Holy Trinity. Tweens must be accompanied by a parent. HT night is always the 4th Tuesday of the month.

 

Pathways Dinners

Pathways, run by Urban Ministry, is a temporary shelter for homeless families. Each age group goes once in fall and once in spring to provide dinner, music, arts & crafts for Pathways family shelter.

Sun. Oct. 22nd

2pm to 4pm
