Digital Worship: March 29, 2020

Welcome to Trinity Church’s digital worship for the 5th Sunday in Lent. But first, some announcements:

Next Week Is Palm Sunday!

If you happen to be going past the church, grab a palm for yourself and your family. They’ll be sitting out front. But don’t make a special trip!

Join Us For Digital Coffee Hour!

We’ll gather on Zoom in our digital parish hall at 11:30 AM on Sunday, so grab a beverage, pull up your technology and say hello!

Live, Face-to-Face Prayer on Sunday Night!

7 PM on Sunday night in our digital parish hall, we’ll gather and pray Compline together. If you’ve never done it before, it’s a beautiful and brief service meant to happen last thing in the day. You can find it in the Book of Common Prayer on page 127, or at bcponline.org after clicking ‘Daily Office’ and ‘Compline’.

 

 

Digital Worship: March 22, 2020

Welcome to Trinity Church’s first digital worship. The sound quality is something we’ll be working on (we’ve got an awesome mic to be delivered next week), and a special thanks goes out to Linda Morris our intercessor who was willing to read in front of the camera.

We’re going to be switching our in-person Pub Theology to a Digital Pub Theology, hosted on Zoom. If you’re unfamiliar with zoom, it’s a super easy way to have meetings and gatherings online. Our first gathering will be at 6pm on the first Wednesday of April, and a link for the meeting will be available next week. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re already part of our community located in Warsaw or around the country, or if you’re just in it for the conversation – it’s a great opportunity to ask questions and listen in on conversations and gather a little more hope for your day. If it’s popular and people want it, we can have more than monthly gatherings.

We’re also going to be starting up a Zoom Bible Study which can be held on Sundays, or during the week, depending on what people want. If you haven’t already received an invitation to join zoom from me in your email, just go ahead and join it on your own – then you’ll be ready to join Trinity as we meet to gather for fellowship, learning, and administration during this time of social distance in some ways and social closeness in others.

Digital Church & The Coronavirus

The church building is closed, in compliance with the Governor of NY and the Bishop of WNY. These means a lot of changes, so read on!

What about worship? Click here for this Sunday’s worship. Mother Sare will be preparing and uploading a worship experience for Maundy Thursday (Apr 9), Good Friday (Apr 10), and Easter Vigil (Apr 11), in addition to regular Sunday worship. On the day in question, you will always be able to access the videos in the above link.

Palms for Palm Sunday will be avilable outside the sanctuary door from Sunday, March 29th until Palm Sunday, April 5th. If you happen to be in the area on another errand, pick some up for your family.

What about meetings? Click here to join in on Coffee Hour, a Bible Study, Pub Theology, or to pray Compline with Mother Sare. Think of it as a Digital Parish Hall, hosted courtesy of Zoom.us. Vestry will meet here at the usual time, unless we decide otherwise.

  • Coffee Hour: Sundays at 11:30 AM
  • Compline: Sundays at 7 PM
  • Bible Study or Pub Theology: Wednesdays at 6 PM

What about outreach? Our feeding programs are currently discussing safe options for operation.

All who worship with Trinity are always welcome to call, email, or text Mother Sare with their questions or concerns. Trinity’s building will be closed for the time being, and Mother Sare will be working from home.

John the Baptist vs. St. Nick

You know, in this life we need all kinds. We need people like John the Baptist to come and yell at us to shape up or ship out. And sometimes we need people like Bishop Nicholas of Myra who simply help, and help in life-changing ways.

[If the sermon seems to cut off, it’s because it ended with the distribution of some St. Nicholas of Myra saint cards, which didn’t get recorded.]

[And yes, Mother Sare consistently mispronounce Myra, and instead add an unnecessary ‘n’.]

This sermon was preached by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz at Trinity, Warsaw, NY on December 8, 2019, which is also sometimes known as Advent 2, Year A. The readings were Isaiah 11:1-10, Romans 15:4-13, Matthew 3:1-12, and Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19.

 

 

All Saints Day Sermon

After all hallow’s eve, come the actual hallows. (The deathly hallows? No. Nothing so arcane. Just the dead hallows.) What is All Saints Day? And what is it meant to be?

This sermons was written by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz to be given in her absence while she is on vacation, and was done so at the November 3, 2019 service at Trinity, Warsaw, NY by Mrs. Judy Whiteford. This recording has Mother Sare speaking.

Jesus Tells Us To Pray Always

How do we pray always? Formal prayers? Prayer services? Or could it be an ongoing conversation with God?

This sermon was preached by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz at Trinity, Warsaw, NY on October 20, 2019, which is also sometimes known as Proper 24, Year C. The readings were Genesis 32:22-31, Psalm 121, 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5, and Luke 18:1-8.

Jesus Reminds Us To Fill Our Tanks

No really. Don’t drive on empty and expect your excellent faith to get you to your destination day after day.

This sermon was preached by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz on August 11, 2019, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Warsaw, NY. The readings of the day were Genesis 15:1-6, Psalm 33:12-22, Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16, and Luke 12:32-40.
