Getting out of ourselves and into the world as the Body of Christ

Trinity is committed to providing opportunities for its members, both new and old, to follow Christ into the world of service and love. Each year, Trinity’s Mission and Service Ministry (MSM) committee plans and organizes ministerial opportunities for its members to contribute and support neighbors near and far by partnering with local and global agencies and projects.

Through these partnerships, often taking the form of local organizations which are brought to the attention of the Mission and Service Ministry by a member who is already involved in that organization, members can engage in service not just financially, but also with their time and energy.

Trinity’s mission outreach is shared by the whole church – children, youth, and adults. Here are some of the ways members can engage and support Trinity’s Mission and Service.  Please click on the heading to learn more.
