Visitors and guests are always welcome for worship! Sunday morning worship is at 10:30 a.m. Our worship service is rich in music and scriptural reference, using a blend of traditional, folk and contemporary hymns. Holy Communion is offered on the first and third Sunday of the month and on festival days, like Easter and Pentecost. Worshipers may follow along in our bulletin or on our overhead display screen. At this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Trinity is requiring masks be worn when moving around in the church and while singing. We have also roped off the pews in order to allow for social distancing.
Please join us any Sunday for an uplifting worship experience with a friendly congregation.
Growing in Christ
We grow together in Christ through worship, fellowship, study, and service. Trinity is currently embarking on a partnership with The Navigators to help us grow further as disciples of Christ. Christian education for adults and youth is normally offered from October through May before our worship service but currently we have suspended this time of study. Opportunities to enhance your personal spiritual life are more limited than usual during the pandemic, but may include:
– Offer support to our Senior members who may be lonely or in need of assistance with food and errands.
– Assist with worship as a member of our altar guild; or serve as a reader or communion assistant.
– Encourage fellow community members by being part of our Sunshine Club card and care ministry.
– Lift one another up in prayer and support.
Trinity is a founding congregation for our local emergency assistance program, Hillsdale CARES (Churches Actively Responding to Emergency Situations). Through this program we join forces with 12 other local congregations to help our neighbors in need.
Food Ministry. Church members deliver a weekly box of groceries to our neighbors in need. Through Hillsdale CARES, we partner with area farmers, businesses, and other nonprofits to fill these weekly boxes with a variety of foods and personal care items. If you or someone you know is in need of food, please call the church at 419-368-3132 or Sue at 419-282-1926.
Food From Our Father. We serve a free community meal on the third Thursday of each month. At this time, our meal is strictly drive-thru, from 5:00-6:00 p.m. We encourage community members to deliver meals to people they know who are quarantined or staying shut-in, and we are also willing to deliver to shut-ins in the Jeromesville area. Call the church office for details.
Kinship Gathering. In answer to a need for a support group for a growing number of grandparents who are raising their grandchildren, we have started this gathering on the last Wednesday of the month. A meal is served to both grandparents and their grandchildren at 6:00 pm, followed by a time for the adults to share and learn from experts in a variety of areas that are helpful for their situations. The meeting is from 6:30-7:30, during which time the grandchildren are well-cared for and given one-on-one time by our adult members. Please call the church office for more information. Again, it is unfortunate that we live in difficult times that prevent us from running this program right now. We have every intention of starting again as soon as we are able to do so safely.
Additional Help such as referrals and limited emergency help with expenses are also available.
Little Library. Pick up some reading materials. Leave something you’d like to share. Our Little Library is located at the North Street side of the church and is available for all.
