Stay connected to and cared for in personal, spiritual, and practical ways by Trinity's leadership during this unusual and challenging season.
Elder Care and Prayer
Our contact list for church has been divided up among our elder team. Each elder has a group of people they will be praying for and checking in on in the coming days, weeks, and months.
Our goal in connecting with you is to check in with you and your family, hear how you are doing, see if there is anything we can help you with, and spend time praying together. We hope this care will bring encouragement to you and help forge a greater bond within our church family.
Caring for Those in Need
These are unsettling times, and as we see much of our society shut down, these will be difficult times for many of us in a variety of ways. We know that many of us are currently facing or will at some point face financial hardships or be at a greater health risk with COVID-19. We want you to know that you’re not alone and that we will try our best to help.
Elder Fund Financial Assistance Our elder team has a fund to use for benevolence and assistance to those in need. We have a team that works with those in need, according to our elder fund policy. As we all prepare for some challenging months, our elder fund team is preparing to best utilize these funds in a way that will help a wide range of families. If the economic downturn or loss of work causes a financial hardship, please reach out to Pastor Shawn Carpenter (see below) or one of our elders, and we will begin the elder fund financial assistance process with you.
Also be aware of this: The United Way has a COVID-19 Community Economic Relief Fund. They will help with bills, rent, and food. You can call 1-866-211-9966. You will need to provide your ZIP code and then will be given a list of local agencies to provide you assistance.
*Due to the scope of our society’s fight against COVID-19, we are limiting our elder fund resources to members and active, regular attenders only.
Coordinated Care for Those at Greater Risk Those who are older and those who have underlying health concerns are at greater risk with COVID-19. Local, state, and national government officials and agencies have strongly recommended that those who are at greater risk limit their activities outside their homes. Some states have even restricted it. We want to help those who are unable to make simple grocery or pharmacy trips or other kinds of local errands.
We also know that spring is coming soon and that there may be outdoor projects that those at greater risk will be unable to maintain. We want to help with those maintenance projects as well. If you have errands or projects and need help, please contact Pastor Shawn.
