Caring For Trinity
Life is difficult. If you have an emergency and need pastoral support, please call the church office at (540) 373-2996.
We have a variety of people who minister to those in need, whether in the hospital, homebound, or experiencing an acute family emergency. Here are some of the ways we love our neighbor:
Parish Shepherds - Each week a Parish Shepherd visits those in the hospital who have notified the office of their hospital stay. There can also be follow-up visits to rehabilitation centers.
Caregivers' Support Group - Women and men who are caregivers for a disabled or ill adult or child meet monthly to provide support, information, and other assistance for each other. The group members, led by two counselors, give each other emotional support and information as they progress through various stages of care-giving. Members of this group sometimes transition to the Grief Support Group after their family member passes away.
Drop In Grief Support Group - Each month there is an opportunity for those facing the various types of grief to come together to share their experiences and learn ways to deal with grief.
Health Ministry Committee - The Health Ministry Committee meets monthly to consider the health needs of the Trinity congregation. The Committee sponsors blood drives, offers periodic blood pressure checks, advises on health concerns through bulletin boards and Sunday bulletin inserts, hears speakers and collects information on resources on areas of concern, and provides other activities to promote healthy lives for Trinity members.
