Jesus understood the depths of suffering and the stranglehold it has on people sick in mind, body, and spirit. In the gospel accounts of Jesus’ life, his deep compassion for others was shown through his healing of those sick in mind, body, and spirit. As followers of Christ—especially as Lay Ministers in the Visitation Ministry—we are called to extend this same compassion and caring to others. By the power of the Holy Spirit, Trinity’s Lay Ministers use their gifts to bring encouragement and belonging to others, as well as ministering to their spiritual needs through visits that include prayer, reflection, listening, and Holy Communion.
CareNotes are short inspirational booklets written on a variety of topics to help individuals heal in mind, body, and spirit. CareNotes for adults are available at the Get Connected Center at the north end of the narthex; CareNotes for kids and teens can be found on the lower level just inside Door C. Some of the topics available are: Aging and Dementia, Grief and Loss, Family Issues, Loss of a Pet, and Bullying. Take one and take heart; give one and give hope.
All members of Trinity are called to pray for one another and so you are encouraged to pray daily for one another. All members of the congregational Care Ministry team are also active in praying for the needs of the church. The Trinity community is a caring community in conversation with the living God. We encourage members and non-members to submit prayer requests and our community will surround you in prayer. We believe in a God of love, healing and continual presence.
