Congregational Care / Fellowship
Our purpose is to provide care, support and fellowship opportunities to our church family members here at Trinity. We keep up with those in need of visits, by visiting and sending cards to our homebound members. We seek to stay in touch with those who become inactive in the life of the church. In addition we provide regular fellowship opportunities to the congregation. One of our fun annual events is to go caroling to some of our homebound members during the month of December and bring some Christmas joy to those who do not get to enjoy much of the Christmas festivities otherwise. Each month that has a 5th Sunday, we host a congregational covered dish luncheon, and we provide for weekly refreshments following the 11:00 service for a time of fellowship with one another.
Our Quilting group meets once a month and welcomes all adults interested in learning to quilt or getting together with others to practice your skill. Some quilts are for personal use, and some are given for charitable purposes. Contact person for this group is Norma Nichols.
We also support our Parish Nurse, Linda Fiegel and the health ministries of Trinity. The mission of the health ministries is to offer practical, emotional, and spiritual support to disabled, disadvantaged, or isolated individuals and families with health care concerns. Shalom team works to provide and support our well-being, physical, emotional and spiritual. The Samaritan team is available to offer rides to doctor’s appointments, provide meals after a hospitalization or other time of need, among other things. Our parish nurse provides blood pressure screenings once a month after worship for those who wish to take advantage of that opportunity.
Our committee also responds when there is a death in the congregation, by extending our compassion to the family, providing a reception following a funeral service held at the church, if the family would like one.
This committee is currently chaired by Betty Orta. They meet quarterly and additionally on an as-needed basis. For further information, email email@example.com and include “ATTN: Congregational Care/Fellowship committee” in the subject line.
