It’s easy to join Holy Trinity!
If you have been baptized in any Christian church, then we can add you to Holy Trinity’s membership records. If you haven’t been baptized yet, we would love to discuss that next important step with you.
While church membership is in no way necessary to be a part of the Trinity community, formal membership in a local church signifies for many people a greater sense of belonging, accountability, and opportunity for leadership in the parish. Members commit themselves to give of their time, talents, and treasure to support the work of the church, and after a year of membership they are eligible to vote in parish elections.
To become a member of Holy Trinity Church, call 609-399-1019 to make an appointment with the priest, the first step to membership.
The Book of Common Prayer states, “Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s body, the Church. The bond, which God establishes at Baptism, is indissoluble”. Whether this sacrament is performed early in life or as an adult, baptism in the Episcopal Church is the foundation for a commitment to new life through Christ. At baptism the person vows to accept Jesus Christ as Savior, to trust in his grace and love, and to follow and obey him as Lord. In the case of infants and young children, who are unable to answer for themselves, these vows are made by their parents and sponsors or godparents who promise to raise the child in the Christian faith and support him or her through their prayers and example.

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! We are here to assist you as you enter into married life reverently, deliberately, and according to God’s will. Christian marriage is a request for God’s blessing upon a covenant freely undertaken by a couple for their lifetime. The Church understands its role as one that blesses a couple’s vows for a lifelong relationship and commits to helping the marriage partners flourish in that relationship. As a rite of the church, weddings at Holy Trinity typically use the service for the Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage that is found in The Book of Common Prayer. Premarital counseling is required by the canons of the Episcopal Church.
We welcome interfaith marriages and clergy, and scriptures and readings from other faiths may be incorporated into the liturgy with the cooperation and approval of the officiating priest. Personal written vows may not be used in lieu of the vows of the liturgy.
Holy Trinity requires at least six months’ advance notice prior to a wedding. In the case where either party has been married before and divorced and the former spouse is still living, eight months must be allowed between the initial application and the date of the wedding.
For more information or to begin the process of possibly scheduling a wedding, contact the church office at 609-399-1019.
