Community & Care

Community & Care

At Trinity, our communal life encompasses the good work done by clergy, staff, and lay leaders who provide connection, care, and growth within our community. Through hospitality, caring for others, and sharing life experiences we live into a call to seek and build the Body of Christ at 33rd and Meridian.

Celebration Coffee Hour

Celebration Coffee Hour is a time to celebrate special religious holidays (All Saints, Easter, etc.) and to give thanks to all those who pass through our doors. Trinity groups, families, and friends take turns hosting the monthly event to share hospitality.

Summer Garden Parties

Once monthly each summer, staff and lay leaders coordinate a light reception and gathering in the Lemler Garden after the Wednesday Midweek Eucharist.

Shared Table Ministry

At times, fellow parishioners need the support of a meal or series of meals, such as at the birth of a child or while recovering from surgery. We invite volunteers to coordinate and provide meals during these times of need.

Pastoral Care

The ministry of caring is at the heart of the church’s life. It may include hospital visitation, counseling, and ministries of shared presence, listening, and support. Contact the church to speak with a clergy member when you want to discuss spiritual or theological matters; when you have reason to celebrate; or if you wish to talk in order to gain spiritual comfort.

 In the case of a pastoral emergency, please call the Trinity Pastoral Phone: (317) 922-1477, to reach the priest on call.

Card Ministry

Hand written cards for birthdays and words of encouragement to those whose names are on the parish prayer list are sent periodically, as a reminder that people are being prayed for by the congregation and clergy.

Eucharistic Visits to Nursing Homes

Once each month, a member of the clergy visits two local nursing homes to administer Holy Eucharist to Trinity parishioners who live there. These on-site, in-person gatherings are deeply joyful moments of sacramental refreshment, prayer, and fellowship.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEV)

Lay Eucharistic Visitors take the consecrated elements, the Bread and Wine of Holy Communion, to members of the congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, are unable to be present at the Celebration of Holy Eucharist on Sunday or other principal celebrations.

Pastoral Care Committee

Members bring care, comfort, and support to our members who are sick and shut-in, struggling with bereavement, loneliness, and/or other life challenges by coordinating various activities for members of the congregation.

Common Interest & Support Groups

Caregivers’ Support Group
The Trinity Caregivers’ Support Group meets the third Thursday of each month at 3:30 pm on Zoom. Caregivers for those suffering from dementia, Parkinson’s, strokes, or other similar conditions meet monthly to discuss situations they are encountering and to lend support. Contact the church office for Zoom details.

Senior Luncheons
Senior Luncheons are held once each spring and fall, with Holy Eucharist followed by a light luncheon. It’s a wonderful opportunity to bring together long-time and elderly members of the parish to renew and strengthen their bonds of friendship and connection. Contact Rev’d Mary to be added to the invitation list or enquire about the next scheduled date.

Parent Groups
Parents connect on Sunday mornings, while kids are in their formation classes, sometimes for a structured discussion on a pre-defined topic, sometimes just for uninterrupted conversation. This group does not meet during summer months, when Sunday school is not in session. Contact Rev’d Rebecca for more information or to get on the Children & Families e-newsletter list.

Trinity Men’s Breakfast
Trinity Men’s Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday each month at 9am at a local restaurant. All Trinity men are invited to the Trinity Men’s Club to meet for breakfast and conversation.

Women’s Reading Group
All women are welcome to join this social, spiritual, and smart group to read and discuss meaningful, engaging books. This group meets once each month during the program year (September through May).
