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 Morning Opportunities for Children

— Ongoing

Sunday School and Childcare
Trinity has childcare for children ages 6 months and up.  We also have Sunday School for children PreK through 5th grade, where the children are taught an age-appropriate bible lesson that is supported with songs and activities.  Both programs begin at 9:45 AM in the Education Building.  Once Sunday School is over, children are brought to their parents in church shortly before Communion.  Children up to age 5 can remain in Childcare until parents pick them up after the service.

During the 10:00 AM Service
If you prefer that your children be with you in church, we offer activity packets and crayons which can be found in the narthex of the church.  The packets pertain to the gospel reading for that day.

Trinity also has a Quiet Room located in the back of the church that welcomes families with small children under the age of 18 months.  There, parents have the benefit of participating in the service while in the soundproof room caring for their young children.

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 

— Sundays

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 Hour 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 so kids can connect as well. 

Sandy and Nancy Wolcott
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! We ask that food items that are brought to Coffee Hour are already on serving platters. These items can be homemade or purchased, such as cakes and brownies, finger sandwiches, deviled eggs, cookies, fruit, cheese, bagels, etc. Have your platters covered in plastic and ready to serve. Trinity has serving platters and utensils on the table in the Parish Hall Kitchen if you need them. Please help yourself!

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. Happy Hosting!

Activities for Kids During Coffee Hour

Trinity has engaging activities for children of all ages during Coffee Hour. In addition to the beautiful playground, there is a corner of the Parish Hall that is dedicated to young children. This space is safely contained and has a child caregiver to help the parents monitor their children while they are playing. In addition, there is an area for older children to make crafts, play games, and draw on the white board. A third area is dedicated to older children where they can play games such as Ping Pong and Air Hockey. We look forward to seeing you at Coffee Hour! If you have any questions regarding the activities for children during Coffee Hour, please contact Kathy Rodriguez in the office at 772-567-1146 or through email at [email protected]

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.

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]
