  • Blessing of the Backpacks

    Every Fall season, as school is beginning, we invite children in our church and community to attend a special service where our Rector blesses the backpacks they will be using in school that year.
  • Blessing of the Animals

    Believing that God loves everything in our life, we encourage congregants and friends associated with Trinity Episcopal Church to bring their animals to receive a special blessing from our Rector. This special service commemorating these important friends in our lives is always an important service.

  • The Hanging of the Greens

    Following the 10:30 am worship service on the fourth Sunday of Advent, the Trinity community gathers to decorate the church with greenery and poinsettias for the upcoming Christmas season. The greens symbolize and celebrate the everlasting life we experience through Jesus. It is a time of fun and joyful preparation.
  • Christmas Pageant

    Our annual Christmas pageant is one of the highlights of our liturgical year. Following the story of Mary and Joseph on their quest to find a birth place for baby Jesus, our children re-enact the story for our congregation at the Christmas Eve Family Service. Children enjoy acting in this performance, and our Christmas season is enriched through their participation.
  • Epiphany Celebration

    On the evening of the Feast Day of Epiphany, January 6th, we gather at the Trinity Outreach Center to light the Epiphany bonfire as we mark the last day of the Christmas season. The Feast Day of Epiphany remembers the proclamation of Jesus' birth to the wise men and his manifestation as the "Light of the World." The evening includes a hot dogs and hot chocolate provided by the Men of Trinity. This is an event that brings together both church and school.
  • Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

    The day before Ash Wednesday is known as Shrove Tuesday. To "shrive" someone, in old-fashioned English, is to hear their acknowledgement of sins, to assure them of God's forgiveness, and to give them appropriate spiritual advice. On Shrove Tuesday, many Christians make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life they especially need to ask God's help in dealing with. Often they consult on these matters with a spiritual counsellor, or receive "shrift." Shrove Tuesday is also called Fat Tuesday, because on that day a thrifty cook uses up the fats that have been kept around (the can of bacon drippings, or whatever) for cooking, but that will not be using during Lent. Since pancakes are a standard way of using up fat, pancakes became the traditional Shrove Tuesday meal in England. At Trinity, our Pancake Supper is a time of fellowship and fun, a final frivolous celebration before the somber Lenten Season begins.
  • Lenten Study

    On Wednesday Evenings during the Lenten season we gather together for a potluck dinner and a book study on Christian spirituality.
  • Children's Easter Egg Hunt

    Each Easter we host an Easter egg hunt for the children in our parish. Our youth gather early to hide eggs on the front lawn of the church. Then, under the guidance of our Children's Ministry Director, children are released to find as many eggs as they can. This highlight of our Easter season is celebrated by many.
  • Trinity Sunday

    Each year on the first Sunday after Pentecost, we gather together to celebrate our history and heritage in Longview, Texas. We celebrate with a meal together, outdoor games and other festivities.
