Christians have lovely ways to care for each other, some of which are listed below. There are always opportunities to lend a helping hand or a listening ear. Trinity is a caring community quick to reach out and help each other in times of need with practical help and to offer prayers for those in need. During church service, we pray for those in need during the Prayers of the People. We also have a Prayer Chain Ministry, whose members pray daily for those in need. Christians have always been known for their love for each other, and helping out is one of the major ways we demonstrate this love. If you feel the calling to care for your brothers and sisters in Christ, prayerfully consider one of these ministries.
