PARISH LIFE

 

COFFEE HOUR HOSTS

Parish members provide hospitality following the 8:00 a. m. and 10:30 a.m. worship services, bringing sweet and savory treats for all to enjoy. For the 8:00 or 10:30 a.m. service, contact Dee Dugger, wl2d2@bellsouth.net

 

FOYERS

"Foyers" are small groups of parishioners who gather to love one another, share a simple meal, and enjoy fellowship. Groups of 6-8 people meet once a month for dinner in members’ homes, with the role of host rotating each month. Twice a year, the groups are reorganized: fall/winter groups, in late September; spring/summer groups, in February. Foyers provide opportunities to develop new friendships and deepen old ones, making our large parish feel smaller and warmer. The uniqueness of Foyers is its lack of formal structure, its openness of communication, and its free access given to the Spirit. Contact: Dee Dugger, wl2d2@bellsouth.net


FUNERAL RECEPTION GUILD

The Guild provides a reception following funerals or memorial services for parishioners in order to give family members a pleasant setting to greet friends and share in fellowship. Most of the refreshments are prepared and provided by members of the Guild. Anyone interested to help is welcome to join the Guild and to be called upon occasionally to provide this comforting assistance to families. Contact: Dilon Ellis, dellis1946@earthlink.net, or the parish office, 372-4721

PARISH LIBRARY

The Library — an over 3,000 volume treasure trove — contains information, study materials, and casual materials, all connected to religion. and all available for borrowing by parishioners. There is information about the Episcopal Church, non-Christian religions, the sacraments, the life of Jesus, prayer, God, history of Christianity, meditation, etc. There are also works of fiction and mysteries, along with a small collection of DVDs and journals. Those checking out books should fill out the card in the back of the book and leave it at the librarian’s desk. Returned materials should be left on the librarian’s desk.

SAINT ELIZABETH CIRCLE

The circle provides support, fellowship, and spirituality to its members and outreach needs to the church and community. Through projects, proceeds, and close fellowship, we work to meet the needs of others. Each meeting consists of devotional prayers, project reports, and inspirational programs, followed by a beautiful luncheon. The circle meets the second Tuesday of each month, September through May, at 10:00 a.m., in the parish hall. It is the parent organization of the Holiday Bazaar and The Shop at Holy Trinity.

TWENTIES and THIRTIES (20’s-30’s)

The Holy Trinity 20s/30s group includes singles, dating, new parents, students, young professionals, newlyweds, and much many more. Though we come from different walks of life, we share the commonality of the 20s and 30s age and our faith. Our monthly brunch is held every second Sunday at a restaurant of the group’s choice in Gainesville. God & Guinness night is every fourth Tuesday, where we gather to discuss faith, theology, or just life over beverages and food. If interested in joining the 20s/30s group, contact Jessica Nelson, nelson.5.jessica@gmail.com or Megan Lewis, themeglew@gmail.com


WEDDING GUILD

Marriage is a joyous celebration and is considered a Holy Sacrament in the Episcopal faith. Wedding Guild members work with brides and grooms, and with the clergy, as all prepare for this very special occasion. Contact: Ellyn Radson, radsonea@gmail.com
