Christian Counseling: This is provided on a short-term basis as needed, by appointment, to assist parishioners in problems with emotions, relationships or lifestyles. .

Circle of Love: A monthly gathering for women. Enjoy Christian fellowship and share a meal. Email Dawn Doorn for more information.

Centering Prayer: We invite you to the small chapel at the rear of Trinity at 4:30 pm on Wednesdays where we quietly sit using Father Keating’s method of Centering Prayer. Drop-ins are welcome, no commitment to be there regularly, or experience necessary. This is a simple practice of calmly entering deeply into an intention to be fully present to God. We begin with a short reading from the Psalms, Twenty minutes of the silent practice, followed by a short period of reflection. For additional information Contact Peggy Ziegler

Education for Ministry (EFM): A mentored 4-year program.

Hank’s Helping Hands: Provides short term help for Trinity parishioners with a variety of needs that may arise such as meals, transportation, respite care, small repairs and the like. Parishioners may call the church office or Jerry Lear (Hank’s Helping Hands leader) to let us know of needs.

Healing Prayer: On Sunday morning at the 10:30 am service, there are prayer teams located at the crossing near the front of the church waiting to pray with you. Please stop by after receiving communion and let us pray for your healing. Many times someone is also available in the chapel following the service. Contact Peggy Ziegler to learn more about this ministry.

Health Ministry Team: The team has identified itself with St. Luke, “the beloved physician” and patron saint of physicians and surgeons in naming its gathering space in St. Helen’s Hall, as “St. Luke’s Corner”. This space will be a welcoming area for all who wish to explore, participate in and journey through issues of faith and health. It is the goal of the Health Ministries to be a part of Trinity’s mission “to minister to the spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional needs of all people” by providing health education, resources, and general support to the spiritual, physical and emotional health of our community. Thus it seems very appropriate that we articulate this ministry through the tradition of St. Luke.

Emergency Numbers

Holy Communion at Home: For parishioners who are ill or unable to be present with the Trinity family, Lay Eucharistic Visitors help fill the physical gap between home and church. Please contact the church office, one of our clergy or Peggy Ziegler to arrange this.

Hospital Visits: Most people appreciate brief visits and prayers during times of hospitalization and/or convalescence. We consider visitation at such times to be an important part of our ministry on Christ’s behalf. We call it a ministry of “Presence”. We want to be present with you and your loved ones during life’s crises. Please remember to call us.

To reach the courtyard, use the ramp at the west edge of the parking lot and continue around the Family Kitchen/education wing. For information about the ministry contact Karen Cox.
