Reaching Out to Serve
Are you interested in reaching out to meet needs in the community or at the Church? Holy Trinity offers many opportunities each year to help those in need across and beyond Northen Virginia. There also are many ways to assist with Holy Trinity’s worship services, programs or operations. Here are some of the many ways that you can connect with volunteer opportunities through Holy Trinity.
Serving the Community
Holy Trinity volunteers assist those in need in the community and beyond throughout the year. If you have “a servant heart,” consider volunteering for one or more of the following ministries and missions.
Ongoing|recurrinG Service Ministries
Holy Trinity has a dedicated team of volunteers who helped develop and now support a tutoring program at Graham Road Elementary School, which has a large number of students from immigrant and low-income families. This is a great opportunity for people who have availability during school hours.
Holy Trinity is also one of 30 area churches that operates a hypothemia shelter for a week each winter. More than 100 HT members and friends work to set up sleeping mats in Fellowship Hall and provide snacks, dinner, breakfast and a bag lunch; entertainment and conversation; personal hygiene items and clothing; and safety for 35-40 guests each night.
Teams of Holy Trinity members also regularly volunteer for the community service and support programs listed below. Please contact the Church Office at 703-532-6617 or via firstname.lastname@example.org for specific dates and times to join a volunteer team.
Miriam’s Kitchen (Washington, DC)
Falls Church Community Service Council Food Pantry (Falls Church)
Food For Others (Fairfax)
The Lamb Center (Fairfax)
Our global volunteer work includes sending a team to El Salvador each year to assist with a Lions’ Club Eye Clinic. And our members regularly donate funds to support a Young Adults in Global Mission participant, thereby making it possible for a recent college graduate to spend a year in an education, health, advocacy, or care mission in a developing country.
SEASONAL|Ad Hoc SERVICE MISSIONS
Holy Trinity selects six “seasonal” service missions each year that invite our members to respond to a particular need in the community or beyond. Recent seasonal missions have provided a new book for every student at Graham Road Elementary School; cleared invasive plants from a local park; sent new sports equipment to a church after-school program in Puerto Rico that lost theirs in Hurricane Maria; and produced 10,000 packaged meals for the Rise Against Hunger network.
Individual members of Holy Trinity also regularly take the initiative to organize additional opportunities for members to support a good cause, such as organizing a Race for the Cure team. Holy Trinity is full of people who love to serve and readily respond to a highlighted need.
Volunteering for the Church
Volunteers fill important Sunday morning roles as greeters, ushers, lectors, musicians, sound system technicians and assisting ministers for worship services; support faith formation as Sunday School teachers and Bible Study and Forum leaders; and host the post-worship Coffee Fellowship.
Many more volunteers support Holy Trinity by serving on the Church Council or a ministry team, volunteering in the church office, or assisting with special tasks such as seasonal decorating of the Sanctuary and spring and fall property clean-up days.
New helping hands are always welcome! We currently have a need for additional ushers and assisting ministers. Use the link below to volunteer with one of those ways or send an email to email@example.com to inquire about another type of opportunity.
