CARING FOR TRINITARIANS

Pastoral Care Areas

In an effort to provide quicker responses in times of need, Trinity divided our congregation by zip codes.  Within each zip code an “area coordinator” works with a committee made up of other Trinitarians living in the same area.  The coordinator acts as a “point of contact person” -- a go-between with the church office/clergy and parishioners.  He/she works with committee members in that zip code area who will send cards, prepare meals for those who could use short-term meal assistance, help with “odd jobs,” or respond to members of our church family dealing with loss, in all of its dimensions.  Receiving a card, a phone call, or a visit lets folks know Trinity cares about them and helps members feel more connected. Hopefully feeling more connected lets members feel more comfortable about calling on their Church family when help is needed.  Some areas have organized social events as opportunities for Trinitarians to get to know one another better and we hope other areas will plan events.

 

 


 

Parish Shepherds

Each week a Parish Shepherd visits those in the hospital who have notified the office of their hospital stay.  There can also be follow-up visits to rehabilitation centers.

 

 

 

 

 

Caregivers’ Support Group

The Caregivers’ Support Group will meet Thursday, January 10, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. in the Health Ministries Room of Trinity. Women and men who are caregivers for a disabled or ill adult or child are invited to attend the meeting. Call Randall (540-207-0600), Brenda (540-226-2628) or Claire (540-479-6988) for more information.

Women and men who are caregivers for a disabled or ill adult or child meet monthly to provide support, information, and other assistance for each other.  The group members, led by two counselors, give each other emotional support and information as they progress through various stages of care-giving.  Members of this group sometimes transition to the Grief Support Group after their family member passes away.  A leader of the group compiles a library of books, articles, pamphlets, and other materials for the use of the congregation.
