Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.Romans Chapter 12 Verse 1
Opportunities to serve Trinity Church
Our church thrives with the service of every member. We encourage you to be part of a ‘ministry team’ — whether it is pouring coffee, helping with the children, being involved in musical worship leading, welcoming visitors, or one of the other service areas, everyone has something to contribute.
Whether you intend to be here for a few months or many years there are always opportunities to serve. Your gifts and serving heart may bless the life and ministry of our church now. Taking the opportunity to serve will help you grow and deepen your fellowship within our church.
