Journey to Christmas 2017

 

We have an amazing month of church coming up at Trinity by the Sea! We have guest preachers coming to bring inspiration, and to help us find meaning in the midst of this season. Please come participate whenever you can, support our guests, and prepare your heart and mind for the coming of Christ.

Dec. 3 is the First week of Advent; we will have guest preacher Patrick Miller, Rector of St. Mark’s, Houston, the parish James served before moving to Port Aransas.  Patrick was on Staff at Camp Allen when James was a camper. He was written two books: Empty, memoir of a visit to the Holy Land, Spoken: a collection of sermons; he did a TED-X talk.

Ded 10, Advent II, our guest preacher will be our Diocesan Deputy for Disaster Relief, Jennifer Wickham; Jennifer W was with us the weeks after Harvey Hit, and helped us get organized in Port Aransas to respond to the many needs after the hurricane.

Dec 17, Advent III, our guest preacher will be Walter Sohl, the founder of Homes for Displaced Marlins. Walter grew up in Port Aransas, and returned with his family to live here about four years ago. He was one the first responders after the storm, helping to clear the debris from roads. In those early days, he saw the need to get our school families back to Port Aransas and HFDM was born.

Life After Harvey

We took a bit hit from Harvey, but we survived!

Days after Harvey hit, we opened the church for prayer. Each day since, we have gathered at 8 a.m. to say daily devotions before getting on with our day’s work. We only missed one Sunday, and had our first Post-Harvey Eucharist  on Sunday Sept 3rd at 9 and 11. Trinity has been working with volunteer groups, government, and our diocese to help lead the way forward to recovery. We need your help! Visit our diocesan website to see how you can volunteer. You can also donate there, or send a check to PO Box 346, Port Aransas, TX, 78373 to donate directly to Trinity and our relief efforts. More soon, just know we are open for worship and so much more!
