The Importance of Service
The Bible likens the church to a body (1 Corinthians 12:14-26). Bodies have many different parts, yet each is important and contributes to the healthy function of the whole. In the same way, each person in the church is important and can contribute in important ways that add to the overall health and growth of the church. At Trinity we recognize that there is no cookie-cutter approach to serving. God has given a variety of gifts to his body.
Please look through the list below and see if there is a way you might be able to contribute to the body. Contact the ministry leader listed to volunteer to serve, or email Sarah for more information.

Christ's Hands and Feet
The vision of Christ’s Hands and Feet is to help our church family serve one another well and walk alongside each other with a sacrificial love. As the church grows, it is easy for some people to be overlooked, and for some needs to go unaddressed. Our goal is to meet as many of these needs as possible beyond the scope of what our growth groups are already doing, and as an extension of how our deacons are already serving.This ministry is being carried out under the guidance of our deacons.
Toward that end, we need a pool of volunteers who are willing to serve, possibly on a one-time basis, or possibly as part of an ongoing need. Some examples of ways to serve include
- providing someone with a ride to the doctor’s office
- cleaning someone’s house who has a short-term inability
- visiting the elderly or infirm
- providing hands-on support to someone with a long-term illness
- or a myriad of other possibilities.
If you are interested in volunteering to serve, please sign-up to be part of our email list. We will notify you when a need arises, so you can decide if you have the time and skill set to help meet that need.
If you have any questions, please email Kirsten Schneider or Jeanine Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you know of a need, but don’t see a ministry to meet it, perhaps God is calling you to start a ministry at Trinity Church. If you are interested in starting a new ministry, please contact Sarah.
