CARE

Our caring ministries help us to care for one another and reach out with the love and compassion of Christ.  If you are interested in serving in a caring role or know of someone who is in need of any of the caring ministries listed below, please contact the Caring Ministries Coordinator, Lisa Hardebeck.
 

SMALL GROUPS

Small Groups are Christ-centered gatherings formed to advance Trinity’s mission: You Matter to God! You Matter to Us!  Small Groups will be led by well-trained, well-supported Leaders and composed of as few as 5, but not more than 12 people. ​Each Group will experience:

 

Christian Community—the joy of belonging, deepening friendships, loving and caring for one another

​Biblical Equipping—the excitement of exploring God’s Word together so its transforming power can shape our daily lives​

Worship and Prayer—the blessing of praising God for His mercy and opening our hearts to God’s powerful presence in prayer​

Missional Service—the personal fulfillment of following Jesus into the mission field with the word-and-deed message of God’s gracious kingdom

MEALS DO MATTER

Meals Do Matter is a ministry that makes home-cooked meals, packages them and freezes them for our church family to deliver to people in their communities who need extra comfort, compassion, consolation and care. Meals are located in the freezers in the Missions Room. More information can be found at the Meals Do Matter website.

They receive 50 hours of initial training and experience ongoing education and monitoring.  Stephen Ministers generally meet with their care receivers one hour a week for as long as needed.  Referrals for this caring ministry can be made in several ways:
