Trinity's search for a new Priest
We are actively searching for a new priest to fill the shoes of our recently retired Pastor Karen. The Vestry is collaborating with Rev. Vicki Zust on the transition work that needs to be done as the Diocese directs.
This is our prayer for the search:
"Almighty God, who sees the work of Your faithful people sat Trinity Church, Lancaster, performed in Christ's name and to Your glory: Watch over Your flock as we seek a new shepherd, that we may neither fear the changes ahead, nor wander from the Way. Heal those who suffer in body, mind, or spirit that they may be returned to Your service. Pour forth Your Holy Spirit upon our leaders so they may sense the needs of this congregation and open their hearts to discern the path ahead. In Your good time, Lord, send to us a priest who is loving, caring, and faithful, so that our parish family can delight in the work You have given us to do, and boldly proclaim the Gospel to all we encounter. We ask this in the name of Your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen."
If you are interested in becoming our new Priest please view our web page here for information of who we are and where we are located.
Search update 10/01/17
An interview was held by the Vestry for the priest position this past Thursday. Another interview for the 2nd applicant is coming up on October 18. Please continue your prayers as our search continues.

New Hall Reservation policy now in effect (June 2016)
Since the completion of the under-croft in addition to the main parish hall, we have experienced a significant increase in hall reservations this past year. In order to ensure that all reservations can be accommodated there is a new policy going in effect for all reservations going forward.
All requests (Scouts, Non-profit organizations, clubs, individuals) must complete the Parish Hall Usage Agreement and submit it to the Office for confirmation and a reserved time and location.
Please print out the form (or request a form from the Office), fill it out, include all the required documents, and submit it to the Office. Once received the Office will review it and make the reservation as long as time, date, and the hall location is available.
Remember - No reservation will be made until the interested person/group has received an email from the Church Office stating the date, time, hall location that the reservation has been confirmed for.
Trinity Church now has a way for you to make electronic offerings to the church right from your personal computer/smart phone. This new service allows you to give any amount, at anytime, from home or on the road, with your computer or even your mobile device.
