Family Information Form
We are always in the process of updating our church records. Even if you are 100% sure that we have all of your information, we are asking EVERY parishioner to fill out a family information form. These forms are available at the church, or you can download one off the website here. Please return completed forms to the alms basin, the basket in the Narthex, or to the church office. Thank you!

Holy Trinity Reads: A Long Obedience in the Same Direction
This Fall in Adult Christian formation, we're focusing on Eugene Peterson's commentary on the Songs of Ascent (Psalms 120 through 134). If you've ever found the psalms mystifying or if you're looking for a good devotional approach to the Bible, this book could be a blessing to you. "Long Obedience" will be the main text for Adult Sunday School, and we’ll discuss Ch. 4 & 5 next.
Holy Trinity College Ministry
Our next College Bible Study and dinner will be on Monday, October 22 at 6 pm. All college students are invited to come to Holy Trinity for a delicious, home-cooked meal, worship, and fellowship.
This is your last chance to sign up for a meal this fall, because there is only ONE SPOT LEFT! You may sign up HERE! College students often miss home-cooked meals and the relationship with their home church when they begin college. We hope our ministry helps fill these and other voids, and we are thankful for your help!
If you are in college/graduate school, but not attending AU, we want to stay in touch, so please fill out this form!
Students! Connect with the Rev. Gail Goldsmith at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or ideas to share! Looking forward to getting to know you!
Connections Ministry Breakfast

Rector led Bible Study
This is a great time to jump into Bible Study at 7:00am or 10:00am on Wednesdays in the Parish Hall. We've started II Corinthians, and we’re taking our time with this rich text about how the power of the Gospel works on a community in conflict. Come enjoy this study for your mid-week Jesus and some great fellowship!
Alabama Prison Birth Ministry
Our contributions to the Alabama Prison Birth Project have not gone unnoticed! For the past 4 months, a number of women from our church have contributed time and energy to prepare a nutritious meal for the pregnant and postpartum women incarcerated at Tutwiler Prison. Please take a minute to watch this video (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dLgrE_bGH2b1A56OCFArXATZ1OejGQvE/view?usp=sharing) expressing the group's heartfelt gratitude for these meals. If you would like to contribute to these efforts, consider signing up to purchase or prepare one or more items for our monthly meals here.
The Holy Trinity Young Adults group meets once a month for a supper club or social outing. If you identify as a 'young adult,' it’s a great way to meet others in the church and Auburn community!

For more information, contact Adam Bennett: email@example.com.
Evensong on the Eve of the General Election

Bob Blackwell and Sara Willis. It will be a service celebrating our nation, our democracy and our privilege to vote. This will be a service for the whole community, so invite your neighbors to join us as we sing evening hymns, canticles and hear scripture encouraging civic duty.
November Care Symposium on Loneliness
On the morning of Monday, November 26, Dr. Drexel Rayford, Support Team Network Manager at UAB Pastoral Care, will lead a discussion on the topic of loneliness: it’s causes, how to talk about it, and how to cope with it personally and in a community. For those who can stay a bit longer, the presentation will be followed by a workshop examining how we can do a better job of combating loneliness among members of our church. Please mark your calendars today for Monday, November 26 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm (9-10 presentation, 10:30-11:30 workshop, lunch provided).
