Trinity Youth Service Project

The Trinity Youth Group will be volunteering on Sunday, November 18 with Restoring Dignity, a local non-profit that supports impoverished refugees and through whom we connected with Trinity's sponsored Yale Park refugee family. We will be helping to organize the agency's storage unit where donated items are stored until they can be used by needy refugee families. Lunch will be provided. We will return to the cathedral by 3:30 and the youth can be picked up at the back parking lot. If there are any questions, please contact Sue Wilkins at 402-759-6465.

The Advent of Advent: Wednesday Evening Discipleship Class

This great liturgical season helps us to focus on the Incarnation of Christ. That Incarnation, God becoming human, was initiated by God, but at God’s design, required the assistance of other beings as well. Brother James Dowd will lead, The Advent of Advent, which will focus on four important “beings” of Advent. Join us on Wednesdays in Advent at 6:00 pm in the Clarkson Center conference room for the Advent of Advent.

Wednesday, November 28: The Prophet Isaiah

Wednesday, December 5: The Angel Gabriel

Wednesday, December 12: The Forerunner of Christ: John the Baptist

Wednesday, December 19: The Great Mother of God: the Virgin Mary

Each week we will explore the “being” itself and how they helped to bring about the Advent of Advent, the Scripture behind that “being” and the Tradition that grows out of that Scripture. Come join us for the Advent of Advent!

Entering the Season: Advent

On the First Sunday of Advent we begin a series called Entering the Season which will be offered at the beginning of Advent, Lent, and other seasons as a way for all generations at Trinity to deeply engage with the church’s seasons. These events are intended to provide you and your family with meaningful and practical ways to experience, learn about, and pray during these seasons.

After the 10:30 am Eucharist on December 2, we will share a meal and learn about the Season of Advent by building Jesse Trees. The Jesse Tree is a practice of adorning a tree with ornaments that represent the people, prophesies, and events leading up to Jesus’ birth. At this event, we will be making Jesse Trees for you to take home as you and your household engage Advent.

Everyone who plans to a trend is invited to bring a pot of soup to share for lunch. Please contact Sue Wilkins at swilkins@trinityepiscopal.org if you are willing to bring soup. Bread and drinks will be provided.

We hope you’ll save the date for the next Entering the Season as we prepare for Lent on March 3.

Sunday Women in the Bible Series

Sunday Women in the Bible Series

Where is Eve when Adam is given that inauspicious command not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? And where is Adam when she later plucks that dangerous fruit? How much power does a matriarch like Rebekah have in her family, over her own fate and those of her children? What are the biblical writers trying to tell us when the future of all Israel turns on the loyalty of a foreign prostitute or the bravery of an unnamed woman in the heat of battle? What do the arguably scandalous women mentioned in Jesus’ genealogy in Matthew say about his mother and about what sort of savior he will become? Join us Sunday mornings from September 9 through October 7 at 9:30 am in Gardner Hall as we read stories of women in the Bible and try to better understand their place in the social, economic, political, and religious spheres of their day, and as we ask how their stories might, and might not, inform our own.

Sessions will be led by:

  • Melissa Tubbs Loya, PhD in Hebrew Bible (Sept 9, 16, 30, and Oct 7);

  • Becca Stevens, Founder of Thistle Farms (Sept 23)

Summer Series with Our Ecumenical Neighbors

Please join us for three-sessions entitled “The Gospel and the Kingdom: Christian Witness in Downtown Omaha” on Thursdays, August 2, 9, and 16 at 6:00 pm with Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church and First Central Congregational Church (UCC). As three large, historic, and traditional downtown congregations, the three of us share many opportunities and challenges. In the midst of our differences, we are stronger together in our dedication to serving the gospel.

-The first session will be held at Trinity Cathedral on August 2 at 6:00 pm and will be a panel discussion that explores the way in which the gospel informs our real world engagement and witness.

-The second session will be held at Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church (2650 Farnam St) on August 9 at 6:00 pm and will present a “case study” of the highly innovative Kountze Commons medical and behavioral health clinics.

-The third session will be held at First Central Congregational Church (421 S 36th St.) on August 16 at 6:00 pm and will be a facilitated conversation about what we might be called to do together as a witness to the gospel in downtown Omaha (work around race, economics, etc.).

(Note that the Wednesday Evening Bible Study will meet on these three Thursdays instead of Wednesdays.)
