Sunday Ministries

GREETERS

Greeters are the face of Trinity.  They are the ones to make the "first impression" of Trinity and are vitally important in welcoming our parishioners and guests.  Contact Hannah Middlebrook for details.

 

USHERS

Ushers wear many hats, from handing out bulletins before the service, to collecting the offering and directing and assisting the congregation during communion, ushers are essential for the smooth running of Sunday services.  Please contact Tom Neal for more information.

OBLATIONERS

Oblationers have a short, sweet and simple role in the service, but one that is indespensible.  It is the Oblationers' job to carry the sacraments from the rear of the church to the altar for consecration before Eucharist.  There is no need to worry about when to go, the ushers and altar guild are always happy to help direct you and it's a wonderful way to be involved in the service without a lengthy time commitment.  Please contact Mark Shackelford for more.  Click here for Oblationers' schedule.

 

LECTORS

One of our more popular ways to be involved in service, many people enjoy being lectors, or readers, for our services.  Because of the high demand for the opportunity to read the lessons, the rotation of volunteers may take several weeks.  Please contact Sara Arnold if you are interested in becoming a lector. 

 

CHALICE BEARERS

Chalice Bearers play an exceedingly important role in the service as they assist the priest with Eucharist.  Full training is given to ensure you are capable and comfortable.  High School Seniors or older please.  Contact Bill Daniels for more information.

 

ACOLYTES 

Many young people chose to begin their service to the church as an acolyte.  Torch bearers and crucifers are an important part of the ritual and beauty of the Episcopal service.  Students third grade and older may train and can begin serving at the altar in just a few weeks.  Please contact Bud Davis for details.

 

ALTAR GUILD

Much of the work of the Altar Guild is done "behind the scenes." Under the direction of the Rector and clergy, the "Blue Coats," as they are sometimes called, are responsible for preparing the elements for all services, polishing and maintaining the brass and silver, and caring for the linens, vestments and needlepoint. Membership in the Altar Guild is open to any confirmed communicant in good standing who is willing to be trained in the proper procedure and serve in a group that meets once a month. Contact the Altar Guild Directress, Lucia Laughlin, or other members JoNelle Parks, Shawna Gehres, Patti Jarolim and Ann Radford to learn more.  

 

MUSIC MINISTRIES

Trinity has a vibrant Music program with ministries active both within the church community and reaching out to the broader community of Tulsa.  Click here for more about Music Ministries at Trinity.

 

ALTAR FLOWERS

Donating Altar Flowers are a lovely way to commemorate a special occasion, honor a friend or family member, or memorialize a departed loved one.  Please visit with Jan Schneider about costs and date availability.  

 

COFFEE HOUR TREATS

Trinity provides donuts after Sunday Morning services.  If you would like to celebrate a birthday or special occasion by sponsoring the donuts for a particular service or for a whole Sunday, please contact Jan Schneider.
