Altar Guild
Preparing the altar is for many a real spiritual connection with our Lord. Open to men and women, members prepare the altar and church for Sunday or weekday liturgies. You will be trained to work with a partner and be scheduled about once per month. You donít have to iron! Opportunities available to set up for Wednesdays or Thursdays only! 

Communications
Do you have experience ... skills ... interest ... in communications within our parish and to the community? This committee decides policy on the website, newsletter, and bulletin boards.

Daughters of the King
The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is a national sisterhood of women who make a lifetime vow of Prayer, Service, and Evangelism. Our crosses are worn as an outward sign that we have made a commitment to Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We serve our parish in many ways: delivering Welcome Baskets to visitors; coordinating the annual Trinity Womenís Retreat and Operation Christmas Child; participating in projects such collecting items for Hope Gardens and Laurel House; Hospitality; and providing meals for the homebound as directed by our rector. We meet on the 2nd Saturday at 10:30 in the Library from September through June. 

Hospitality
Coffee Hour Hosts: 
Having a time of informal conversation so that long-time and new members can chat informally is invaluable to the life of congregation and a cup of coffee and a nibble or two makes it happen. Hosts make the coffee and hot water for tea, provide the simple goodies, set the service table and clean up afterwards. You serve less than once per month. 
Funeral Hospitality: 
This team, when requested by the family, hosts funeral receptions. 
Kitchen Crew:
 If you would like to be on a list of folks who may be called to assist with cooking, set-up, or clean-up for special dinners and other food-related events, please check off kitchen 
crew. Itís just a lot of fun getting ready or cleaning up after a great occasion, and working together is a great way to build new friendships. 

Pastoral Care
Pastoral Care Committee:
Assesses the pastoral care needs of the parish and develops the ways and means for responding to them. Take flowers to our homebound. Until you have been confined 
to a hospital bed or to your home, you will never know what joy flowers from the altar bring. You can provide this joy to Trinityís shut-ins by delivering flowers after the service on the first Sunday of the month. 
Eucharistic Visitors: 
In the very first churches, the sacrament was taken immediately from the service to those who could not beat worship. We continue that 
tradition and after some training, these ministers take the sacrament from the altar, even before 
the final hymn, to our sick and homebound members. Eucharistic Visitors are appointed by the Rector, trained through the Diocese, and licensed by the Bishop. 
Food for Friends: 
If you would be willing to be called from
time to time to prepare a meal for a family in need, please sign up for this ministry! 
Provide a Ride:
Sundays - Itís a fact that sometimes people 
cannot get to church because they 
cannot drive. Individuals who have an extra seat 
in their car could provide the wonderful gift of 
transportation to and from church for someone. 
Weekdays -Provide rides for parishioners who 
temporarily need transportation. 
Quilts for Children:
This group meets to make quilts for young people and infants, this project is currently focused on making quilts of different sizes and designs for the children at St. Maryís Villa, the orphanage across the street from the church. The quilters usually meet on Saturday mornings at the church. 
Kids Swap
a ministry that helps parents swap their childrenís lightly used clothing; saving them both time and money. If you are interested in participating or in coordinating please let us know! 

Worship Ministries
Acolyte:
Open to anyone above grade three. Serve Christ by assisting at his altar as crucifer, torch bearer, or the one who carries the gospel book. Training is provided. 
Eucharistic Minister:
Any baptized member 16 years of age or older may serve the sacred wine and bread at the Holy Eucharist. Training is provided. Eucharistic Ministers often assist the acolytes in their duties. 
Healing Prayer Team:
Any baptized person may participate in this ministry. Teams pray with people in the chapels after they take communion. You would probably be scheduled about once per month, and you are always part of a team. 
Readers:
Assist in the leadership of worship at Trinity by reading the lessons or leading the prayers of the people. Anyone grade 7 or above is welcome! Coaching is provided. You would be scheduled about once per month. 
Adult Choir: 
It consists of over 30 amateur and professional singers that provide anthems and leads congregational music for the 10 a.m. Eucharist. If you can carry a tune, you are welcome to join us, and prior choir experience is not required. The Trinity Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:30 in the Parish Hall.
Youth Choir:
The Youth Choir meets Sundays in the Choir Room after the 10:00 Eucharist. Choir members sing once a month during the service and at the major holidays. If youíre eight years or older, come out and join the group. You only need to like singing!

Ushers: 
Women or men who serve in this ministry distribute bulletins at the 10 a.m. service, gather the offering, provide an approximate count for communion and see that the bread and wine for communion are brought forward with the alms, and assist the congregation in moving to the altar rail at communion time. Ushers also warn the young ones in Christian formation that it is about time to come to the service. Ushers are scheduled about once per month. 
Greeters:
One of the most important ministries in any church is to make visitors and newcomers feel welcomed. The greeterís primary task is to welcome visitors as they arrive. Greeters serve about once every six weeks.
