We care for one another through a team approach involving both pastors and intentionally trained and equipped lay leaders.

There are four basic categories of concern which invite a pastoral care response, listed below. To learn more or find out how to receive care, contact the Trinity Office.

The journey forward through difficult times is not a solo expedition but is a path that we must walk together listening to God’s call to us, sharing conversation and trust with one another, and moving forward in faith.
