Ministries

At Trinity, our vision is to carry out the mission work given to us through the word and works of Jesus Christ, which means we see the world as what we can do for it versus what it can do for us.I

The Master’s Closet Free Clothing Pantry  is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon.  Patrons may come twice a month and are limited as to the amount of clothing they may take.

 

The Closet has operated for many years in the basement of Trinity’s two-story building that is accessed from the parking lot entrance.  This pantry is operated by Trinity volunteers to help those with financial hardship including those who are homeless. Patrons may visit once a week and take clothing that can fit in one plastic grocery bag (provided by the pantry) and are asked to sign in and list the city in which they live.  This helps us know how many people are coming and from how far away.  We know that people do come from across the county.

Items we offer in the pantry:  Clothing of all types for infants through adults, including coats, undergarments, socks, shoes, purses, belts, hats and gloves. As we are able, we also offer hygiene bags with soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrush plus other items.  At times we may have laundry detergent.

The Choir will begin meeting in November 2021.   The choir sings during the Sunday 10:30 service (although presently Trinity has only one in-person service at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday) and rehearses in the Choir Room prior to the service.  The choir welcomes new members. If you are interested, please contact the church office.

Counseling is regularly offered by our priest on diverse spiritual and daily living needs for not only parishioners but also for those who knock on our door seeking information, compassion, prayer and help in resolving problems.

New Life Mission Lunch-making takes place (prior to the pandemic) by Trinity volunteers on the second Saturday of the month from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the New Life Mission in Hamilton at Fourth and Henry Streets.  The volunteers prepare sack lunches and then help distribute them to needy persons who regularly come to the Mission for what may be their only food for the day.

The Poverty Group, originally Pastors on Poverty, meets the fourth Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. in Trinity's Fellowship Hall.
