At the heart of the Christian Faith is service and ministry to others. Peter states it well in his letter: “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)
Responding to this challenge, Trinity has many and varied opportunities for the members to serve. You are invited to put your passion, time, and talents to work for the Lord by becoming involved in one of the ministries listed below.
