The most valuable earthly possession a person can have is a warm, supportive friendship. Relationships cannot be purchased nor do they come from beautiful architecture, rousing sermons, or great choirs . They arise from our innermost needs, grounded in our God-given ability to love and care for others. A growing, healthy church nurtures healthy relationships and that is where you come in. Consider joining one of these wonderful hospitality ministries today.
He said also to the man who had invited him, When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just. Luke 14:12-14
Trinity Church welcomes visitors and members alike at Coffee Hour, which is held in the Fellowship Hall. Here we gather, catch up with old friends and meet new friends.
We need your help in providing the refreshments that we share during this time of fellowship. Sponsoring Coffee Hour is a great way for our ministries to advertise their activities or individuals commemorating special events such as birthdays and anniversaries or to give thanksgivings for blessings.
To sign-up to sponsor Coffee Hour on a particular Sunday, please complete the form.

The Trinity Garden Club is made up of men and women who have an interest in the beautification of the church and rectory gardens. A warm welcome is extended to all Trinity members. Come and join us in our efforts to improve the grounds of our beautiful church. We meet the first Friday of each month at 10:00 A.M. in the homes of our members.
From September through May, the group meets on the 1st Friday of the month to socialize and make plans for the gardens.
On the 1st Saturday of certain months we hold a work day at the church. All church members and friends are welcome to join the garden club members as they spend the morning working on the gardens.
For more information and for meeting dates and locations, please see our calendar or contact Connie Brown to the right.
The Garden Club also Trims the Crismon Tree each Christmas.

Each Sunday about 15 minutes before the 8:00 am, 10:30am, and 12:30pm services, members of the Trinity Greeters Ministry are on the front steps of the church to welcome visitors and members alike. For visitors, that friendly welcome is the first impression they receive of our Trinity family. Each greeter team is scheduled once every six weeks. If you would like to become a greeter, contact the front office or fill out the form to the right.
Each group has a coordinator to get things started. Dinners are hosted by group members. The host chooses the date and location and provides the main course. Other members coordinate their offerings with the host. The dinner can be as formal or informal as the host desires. Paper plates, plastic and lap-dining are OK. Groups are autonomous, but will probably meet only three or four times this Spring. Not every member needs to host; others may co-host and contribute dishes. Other options might be Sunday brunch or an interesting ethnic restaurant (dutch treat, of course).
Families with young children may prefer a family group, so please let us know if that is your interest. This group will choose locations, times, and activities suitable for the age range.
If you would like to take part in the Moveable Feast program, please contact the front office.
Please tell us your email and home address, phone number(s), and choose your level of involvement: Small Group Coordinator, Host or Co-Host for one meeting, or Contributor of a dish or beverage.
Welcoming our guests to Trinity is one way to live into our Mission Statement. Our guests are God's weekly gift to us, giving us an opportunity to share those He sends to us.
The challenge of integrating guests into a worship community requires a commitment to making all who come feel welcome. A group of energetic parishioners have worked together to develop and implement a process to achieve that goal based on guidelines developed and promoted by the Diocese.
Teams of interested parishioners work before the service helping parishioners with their nametags and helping the greeters. After the service, team members are at the back to assist clergy in greeting our guests and escorting them to coffee hour.
Materials have been prepared to gather information about our guests, to share with them the opportunities for worship and service at Trinity, a gift bag for guests which includes a magnet with Trinity worship information, a card with succinct information about Trinity and its varied ministries, and a snack. Additional materials are continually being created and evaluated.
A significant aspect of this welcoming process is for all our members to participate by wearing name tags so everyone can be greeted by name. This is welcoming to our guests and also for each of us to get to know our fellow parishioners better. Preprinted disposal name tags are available at the back of the church before the service and in the narthex of the chapel.
If you are interested in being part of this important ministry, please contact Pat Laubach using the form on this page.
