Indigenous Peoples Forum

Read the enewsletter in its entirety here

Beloved Siblings in Christ,

It's so exciting to see the church building bustling again with worship, Christian formation, activities and events! As the Covid numbers continue to decline in Tulsa County, we are hopeful for more and more normalcy in the coming weeks.

This Sunday, join us for the Indigenous Peoples Forum immediately following the 11:00am service. Bring your chair and gather on the promenade for a discussion of how the parish might best acknowledge and respect the Indigenous Peoples who have lived on the land currently occupied by the church and the broader Tulsa community. Ross Swimmer, former Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, will lead this conversation, which will include a historical context for this question and a discussion of Indigenous religious traditions. All parishioners are invited! We will meet outside for Covid safety so plan to bring a lawn chair. Boxed lunches will be served so please RSVP to help us plan.

Also Sunday the 10th, Taizé makes its return! It has been 19 months since our last Taizé service so we are thrilled for this "next step." If you have not attended a Taizé service, which takes place on the 2nd Sunday of each month, you may enjoy participating in the quiet, contemplative worship. Typically the service would be followed by a pot luck dinner, but we're taking it slow and delaying the start of the communal meal for now.

We are excited to announce the formation of a new handbell choir, the Trinity Ringers. Whether you have experience, or you're a complete novice, you're invited to join! Rehearsals will take place on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00pm and the Ringers will perform each month at the 9:00am and 11:00am services. Please email Carteena Robohm, parishioner and new Handbell Director, or Casey Cantwell, Organist and Music Director, for more information.

Keep up with everything happening at Trinity by following us on Facebook and Instagram!

Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.

-Philippians 2:4
