Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Psalms 150: 1-2
When and Where We Worship
We worship every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Our liturgical service usually lasts about an hour.
Our church is located at 1000 South Jackson (Hwy 69) in Jacksonville, Texas. Parking is available in the lot behind the church or on Tyler Street next to the church.
What We Believe
Whoever you are and wherever you find yourself on your journey of faith, you are welcome at Trinity Episcopal Church.
What to Expect
We are are a small church with an average Sunday attendance of about 35, and we feel more like a family than a congregation. Sunday attire ranges from suits, slacks, and dresses to more casual wear. Many of our members gather for coffee and fellowship both before and after the service.
The Book of Common Prayer provides a framework for worship and the text for most of the prayers in the Episcopal Church. Worship is a mix of readings, prayers, hymns and a sermon. Each week, while the priest leads the service, the congregation participates extensively—singing hymns and speaking or singing prayers, the creed (statements of our beliefs), responses and psalms (sacred poems). Copies of the Book of Common Prayer and the Hymnal are housed in the church pews. Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday and all are welcome at the Lord's Table.
What About Child Care?
Because we are a small congregation, child care is not available. However, we welcome families to our family and consider it a blessing when children participate in the worship service.
