Care and Support
Holy Trinity’s care and support ministry is staffed by our pastoral team and trained volunteers, augmented by several support groups that meet at Holy Trinity.
Requests for prayers submitted to the Church office or a member of the pastoral team are forwarded to the Prayer Chain leader, who activates the Chain volunteers to engage in regular prayer as appropriate for the request. Prayers for those facing health or other difficulties also may be requested of the Congregation in general, which will be done through a bulletin announcement and in the worship service.
The Holy Trinity Visitation Team is made up of trained volunteers who assist the pastoral team in visiting members who are shut-ins, living in care facilities, or experiencing a hospital stay. Visitation volunteers pray with the member, inquire as to whether the member has any special needs or requests, and share Holy Trinity news with them.
Couples planning to marry are offered the opportunity to meet with the Senior Pastor for a series of Pre-Marital Counseling sessions.
Other Pastoral Counseling
The Senior Pastor is available to provide short-term grief and other counseling and referrals to community-based counselors when there is a need for longer-term counseling.
