Other Ministry Opportunities
Listed below are various opportunities for ministry
and fellowship at Trinity. If you have any
questions about these groups, please contact the
contact person listed or the church office.
The Altar Guild prepares the sanctuary for services. They prepare Communion supplies, take care of the candles, flowers and banners, and coordinate decorating the church for Christmas and Easter. They also provide for services for weddings and baptisms. Volunteers work in pairs,
typically for one month of the year.
Chair: Sharon Oberheu
Meeting times: Twice a year, on a Sunday in fall and
in January or February, 10:15am
Our Card Ministers reach out through the U.S. mail to send cards to members who are going through tough times or celebrating a special occasion. If you have any questions or are interested but can't make it to their meetings and would like to write out cards at home, please contact Diane Weber. Please also contact Diane or the church office if you know of someone who could use a card to lift their spirits or share their joy.
Coordinator: Diane Weber
Meeting times: Last Sunday of the month, 10:15am
Coffee Hour happens September through May after the 9am worship service. It's a great way to gather socially as a congregation and welcome visitors to Trinity! There are two ways to get involved:
- Make it a habit to be in Fellowship Hall after church for some coffee and treats.
- Sign up to be the Coffee Hour host for one or more Sundays. Directions and supplies for making coffee are in the kitchen, and you provide the treat. Sign-up sheets are in the dining hall. It's easy and fun!
Coordinator: Jody Hoffmann
Greeters are needed for all worship services to help make members and visitors feel
welcome at Trinity. Everyone through our doors is greeted with a smile, handshake and word of welcome.
Coordinator: Lois Helm
This ministry has been developed to serve the members of Trinity who are in need. Please let someone on the Membership Committee know if you're willing to cook, bake, mow, shovel, drive, call or visit a shut-in or someone in the nursing home, or otherwise respond to the needs of our members. And if you find yourself in need, please contact the church office.
There's a Helping Hands freezer located in the bottom level of the education wing (in the room closest to the lower-level parking-lot doors). Please consider making a little extra when you are making a dinner to share with those who might be sick, having hard times, or for our elderly to have on hand for snow days or for those taking care of loved ones. Package the meals to serve one or two people. Containers are available behind the saloon doors in the kitchen. Please label the packages with item and date. Suggestions for meals are: casseroles, sliced meat with gravy or juice, stews, homemade pot pies, sloppy joes, BBQ or shredded meat with rice, BBQ chicken, hamburgers or brats, servings of squash -- whatever you are eating and enjoying this week.
If you or someone you know could use a meal, please feel free to stop by church and help yourselves to the items in the freezer, or call Jody Hoffmann for delivery.
Ladies Lunch Bunch
Lunch Bunch is a great way to gather socially with other ladies from our congregation. They usually meet
on the second Friday of the month, and a different restaurant is selected each month. Call Diane Markgraf so she can make reservations or if you need a ride.
Coordinator: Sharon Oberheu
Lay Communion and Homebound Visitation
You can bring the Eucharist to members of our congregation unable to participate in this gift of life. About 15 of Trinity's members are unable to attend regular church services. The visiting lay assistant alternates with the pastor and other lay Communion assistants on a monthly basis, visiting one or more homebound members to administer Communion, enjoy conversation and bring food items from the Helping Hands freezer, when appropriate. A Communion kit and short written service are provided. There is a brief training session.
Contact: Pastor Brent Halverson,
Ministers Of Hospitality
Ministers of Hospitality assist in welcoming visitors with a packet of information.
Coordinator: Julie Ische
Prayer is such an integral part of our lives as Christians. In prayer, we bring our thanks,
praise, concerns and requests to God, with the promise from Jesus that as we use his name,
God is bound to listen and to answer. If you are anxious about anything and feel that additional prayer support would help you, or if your cup is overflowing with blessings and you'd like to offer more than just your own thanks to God, please let the prayer chain know. These people will pray for you, or for anyone in need, for any concern you have. They don't ask questions -- they just raise your petitions to the Lord. If you have a prayer request, please contact Jeanne Mueller or the church office.
A prayer chain is a powerful and effective ministry in which anyone can participate. Please contact Jeanne Mueller if you are interested in joining.
Readers are responsible to read that morning's scripture lesson. Dialogue or dramatic readings are other possible opportunities for members of this team.
Coordinator: Julie Ische
Sacramental assistants participate with the pastor in
the distribution of Holy Communion. The assistant distributes the wine and has the opportunity to lead the congregation in two prayers. A short training session is provided.
Coordinator: Sue Maronde
Trinity's softball team participates in Cedarburg's Church Softball League. Games are Thursday nights at various times, May through August, in the ballpark across from Cedar Creek Park. Participation is open to members (both men and women) from high school age on up. Fans are needed also to cheer our team on!
