Congregational Life

The goal of Trinity’s Helping Hands ministry is to engage and connect church members to nurture each other in our daily journeys of faith and to joyfully increase our response to congregants, sharing God’s gifts of love and grace.

  • Trinity’s Helping Hands ministry coordinates rides, reasonably priced childcare resources, or other support for Trinity members and friends in their time of need. Trinity members going through challenging times also may need some TLC in the form of meals. In this case, Jeanne Becker organizes a meal sign-up which can be shared with our Trinity family and neighborhood groups to provide meals for those in need of some love.

  • There are times when our members need some TLC in the form of meals following a death in the family, a time of illness or surgery, after the birth of a child and many other situation. The Director of Congregational Life organizes a sign up for meals and then sends out the sign up to our Trinity Family and neighborhood groups to provide meals for those in need of some love.

  • You are invited to join Trinity’s Garden Team either as a Captain or Assistant. The grounds at Trinity have been divided into specific, manageable areas. Volunteer to work with others to help make and keep our church campus beautiful! Adopt a flowerbed and have fun! Contact Lisa Mead (lmead340@gmail.com) or Rebecca Marquardt (rebecca@reverystudio.com) with questions.

  • Trinity has a team of volunteers who Live Stream the 10:45 a.m. worship services each week. In addition to the broadcast on television, you can find the live streamed service on Trinity’s YouTube page. If you would like to serve as a volunteer on the Recording Team, please contact the Church Office at 616.949.2510.

  • Trinity’s worship services are broadcast on GRTV cable channel 25 on Sundays at 11 am. If you find yourself at home on a Sunday morning, you can watch the 10:45 am traditional worship service from the previous week.

  • Trinity in Touch is a team of members who provide homebound communion, visitation, and/or communication with any member unable to join our congregation in worship. Providing the gift of presence and the Lord’s Supper has been very valuable in helping people stay connected. If you or someone you know could benefit from this program, or if you’d like to volunteer, please reach out to Pastor Kari Fast or Faith Community Nurse Kristin Bradley.

  • Trinity Neighbors, overseen by Helping Hands Coordinator Jeanne Becker, matches Trinity members who live close to one another and encourages them to build multigenerational, social, and caring relationships. These households, divided into regional “neighborhood” groups, build relationships and check-in on one another by holding various social events throughout the year.

  • Trinity’s Prayer Tree ministry continues to make a difference in the lives of Trinity’s adults and children. This intergenerational group is an opportunity for Trinity’s adult members to pray for our younger church members and is organized by Helping Hands Coordinator Jeanne Becker.
