Here to Serve…
Service is more than just a motto for us at Trinity- it’s our mission, in fact, it is what we have been created for. Ephesians 2:10 tells us just that, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” And that’s what we strive to do as a family of faith at Trinity. Having been saved by Christ Jesus through His death and resurrection, we respond in faith by doing what we were created to do in love- serve His creation. Below are just a few of the ways that our congregation strives to do that.
Sunday of Service
In April 2019, Trinity held their first ever Sunday of Service event. Following a special morning service at church, Trinity people jumped into action to serve our community. Some teams went out to help with lawn work for people in our area. Others formed assembly lines to pack items for those in need. Others went to out to bless people in town with surprise gift cards at local grocery stores and gas stations. And still others stayed at church and prayed for those who served and those who would receive these blessings. What a wonderful day it was, doing what we were created to do. If you would like participate in an event like this in the future, please let Carla Reed know.
Each summer Trinity sends a team of youth and adults to a regional location to serve the people they meet in Christ’s love. Trinity teams have worked in areas damaged by floods, hurricanes, and other disasters. They have served in locations such as West Virginia, North Carolina, New Jersey and more. If you would like to serve on a future team or if you are lead to support this ministry, let Erin Webb or Steve Smith know.
Serving at Christ’s Table
Trinity members and friends regularly volunteer at Christ’s Table in Zanesville, serving meals to those in need in our community and sharing Christ’s love. You can learn more about the ministry of Christ’s Table by visiting their Facebook page. If you would like to serve with Trinity at Christ’s Table in the future, let Marc or Kim Thomas know.
Trinity is looking forward to sending a mission team from our church to serve in Guatemala with Groundwork Guatemala ministries from June 6-13, 2020. You can find out more information about Groundwork via their Facebook page. If you would like to put your name on the list to serve on the team or if you would like to support this trip in another way, please let Pastor Wilson know.
