Trinity’s 10:00 AM Mass is Live Streamed Every Sunday

In addition, Prayer Requests can be submitted, and safe and secure weekly contributions can be donated on the Live Stream page, as well. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 772-567-1146. 

Trinity’s Sermons are Available Online and On Podcast

Trinity’s sermons are available online and on Podcast. The podcasts are easily accessible on our website: www.TrinityVero.org. If you missed the sermon or just want to listen to it again, go to our website at www.TrinityVero.org and click on the “Sermons” tile.

The Rector’s Forum

— Sunday Mornings
The Rector’s Forum is held on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM in the Education Building. During the Rector’s Forum, the preacher of the day dives deeper into the Sermon topic. This is a Bible study that is interactive, extremely informative and highly educational. You will be amazed at how much you learn in a short time. So come to church with your Bible a little early, grab a cup of coffee and join your fellow parishioners. You will not be disappointed!

Sunday School and Childcare

— Sunday Mornings beginning at 9:45 AM
Sunday School and Childcare are held on Sunday mornings in the Education building. Sunday School begins at 10:00 AM; however, students and children for Childcare can be dropped off at 9:45 AM. Sunday School students are brought to Church after the lesson is over, around the time of the Announcements. Children in Childcare should be picked up in the Education building after the service by 11:30 AM. If you have any questions regarding Sunday School and Childcare, please contact Kathy Rodriguez in the office at 772-567-1146 or through email at [email protected]

Coffee Hour 

Coffee Hour is held in the Parish Hall on Sunday mornings after the 10:00 AM service.  Come grab a cup of coffee and a sweet treat, welcome visitors and new parishioners while getting to know other members of the church. Coffee Hours is also a great way to keep in touch with what is going on in the life of the Church.

Families are encouraged to attend Coffee Hour!  There are activities for children of all ages and childcare so kids can connect as well.

The Adair and Rodgers Families are our hosts for Coffee Hour this weekend.

Please sign up to host Coffee Hour for a Sunday in the coming weeks, on your own or with another family. Sign up on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall or contact Kathy Rodriguez at [email protected]. Hosting Coffee Hour is snap! For precautionary measures, we ask that food items that are brought to Coffee Hour are finger foods, already on serving platters, and are sufficiently spaced so that they can be chosen easily with tongs. These items can be homemade or purchased, such as cakes and brownies that are pre-sliced, finger sandwiches, deviled eggs, cookies, cheese, bagels, etc. Individual prepackaged items can be put in serving baskets. Please have your platters covered in plastic and ready to serve. 

Bring your items to the Parish Hall before the 10:00 AM Eucharist and put them on the serving table ready to serve. All paper products and serving utensils are provided and will be set on the serving tables by Sunday morning. If your items need to be refrigerated, or you need additional serving items, please contact Kathy Rodriguez in the office at 772.567.1146 or through email at [email protected] by the end of the week that you are hosting. Your requests will be on the table on Sunday morning.  

Activities for Kids During Coffee Hour

Attention all families with children!  In the past few weeks, Trinity has added more engaging activities for children of all ages during Coffee Hour, in addition to the beautiful playground that God has blessed us with. There is a corner of the Parish Hall that is dedicated to young children that is filled with age-appropriate activities, is gated so that the young children are safely contained and has a Sunday School teacher/child caregiver to monitor the children while they are playing. In addition, there is a corner of the Parish Hall for older children who like to make crafts, play games, draw on the white board, etc., and a corner of the Parish Hall dedicated to older children where they can play games such as Ping Pong and Air Hockey, etc.  To ensure the children stay safe, the Sunday School teachers and child caregivers will help parents monitor the children in each of these areas in addition to the playground.  We look forward to seeing you at Coffee Hour!

Sunday School Lessons and Crafts on the Website

Each week a new Sunday School Lesson and Craft can be found on Trinity’s website on the Live Stream page at: https://trinityvero.org/sunday-eucharist-live-stream/.  These are great for not only Trinity’s children, but for grandchildren and neighbors.  Feel free to pass the link along!

Youth Group

Trinity offers a Youth Group for young adults, grades 6 through 12. During the summer, the Youth Group meets on the second and fourth Sundays of the month from 12:30 to 2:30 PM. The youth play games, study the Bible, have Biblical discussions and have lunch – typically pizza.

Trinity’s youth group is engaging and Christ-centered, focused on imparting the love and knowledge of God. We use games and discussion-based teaching to serve our students. Our prayerful desire is for our students to then take the Good News of the Gospel and introduce it to their communities. We welcome all Middle and High School youth, from those who are merely curious about God to those who have a full-fledged desire to follow him. If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Josh Gritter in the Church office at 772-567-1146 or through email at [email protected]

Knitters Group Prayer Shawl Ministry

— Tuesdays at 12:45 PM
The Knitters meet on Tuesdays at 12:45 PM in the Education Building. Anyone interested in making prayer shawls for those in need is welcome. The group has yarn and needles for those who want to learn to knit. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Anselmini at [email protected]

The mission of the Trinity Church Prayer Shawl Ministry is to bring people of similar interests together to share in fellowship and to use our time and talents to produce prayer shawls that will be given away to help comfort those who need the loving hands of God surrounding them because of illness or grief. Each one is blessed by our priests.

Altar Flower Donations

Flowers for the Altar in the Church and Chapel can be donated “In Memory of” or “In Thanksgiving for” a loved one on any given Sunday of the year (except during Lent and Advent.)  If you are interested in donating Altar flowers, please contact Alyssa Hiser in the office at 772-567-1146 or through email at [email protected]

Prayer Requests

If you have a friend or a loved one that you would like to be prayed for by the Daughters of the King, please complete a Friendship Form that is in the pews in the Church and Chapel and place it in the collection plate during the service. The person requested will remain on the Daughters of the King prayer list for 2 weeks, unless otherwise indicated. You can also call the Church office at 772-567-1146 or email Sally Nicholas at [email protected] to have someone put on the prayer list.
