Deacon & Care Ministries
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’” Matthew 25:35-40
Our Trinity Deacons are servant-leaders whose ministry is to serve our Lord by serving our Trinity Church family. Those who have placed membership at Trinity are divided up into “flocks” (see brochure), and each Deacon stays in contact with the members of their “flock” to offer encouragement and assistance as needed. If you are a member at Trinity, please feel free to contact your Deacon whenever you are in need of prayer or encouragement. If you are not a member, we encourage you to consider attending our next Exploring Church Membership class. You can learn more at trinitycc.com/ecm.
Trinity members are invited to join the Deacons in serving others through one of the ministries listed below. If you’d like to serve in any particular area of ministry, feel free to contact Lisa (ext. 212) in the church office (433-0584). If you have any questions related to our Deacon Ministries, please do not hesitate to contact your Deacon. You can also contact Dwight Boganwright, Deacon Moderator or Gene Sperling, Assistant for Pastoral Care.
All Saints Ministry
Our All Saints Deacons provide support and encouragement to those in our Trinity congregation who are widowed or live alone, extending love and kindness through fellowship and prayer. Special All Saints get-togethers and fellowship events are planned several times each year.
People Helping People
When a hardship exists, our People Helping People Deacons assist with moving from one residence to another and may also provide help with home repairs.
Our Pastoral Care Deacons make calls and visits to those who are in the hospital, care facilities, retirement or care homes, as well as to those who are unable to leave their homes. This ministry also provides CDs of the Sunday morning message for those who are not able to attend worship.
When a pastoral care need or other occasion warrants, notes and cards of sympathy and encouragement are sent by our Deacons to individuals and families in our Trinity congregation.
When Trinity families are in need due to illness, surgery, birth of a baby, hospitalization, or a death in the family, our Deacons provide meals and other ministry support.
Our Communion Ministry Deacons prepare the Communion elements for worship celebrations on Communion Sundays (normally the first Sunday of each month), as well as for other special Communion events such as the candlelight Evening of Worship on the Thursday before Easter.
Our Deacons host receptions for families and their guests following memorial services held at Trinity.
