There are many ways to get involved at Trinity. Groups for young and old - being involved brings you closer to members of the congregation and puts your faith into practice. Studies indicate volunteering for a cause bigger than yourself, and having a network of support and friendships helps individuals find contentment and happiness.

WELCA - Women of Evangelical Lutheran Church Association
We are a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness, in the church, in the society, and the world.
The biggest fund raiser is the annual Strawberry Fest held in July of each year at Trinity Lutheran Church.
The WELCA Board of Directors meet monthly and hold an annual meeting of all women of the Church at least twice a year. They also have the Mother/Daughter Tea in the Spring, Annual Meeting in the Fall, Advent Breakfast, and many more activities during the year.
"God will not forget your work, and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people, and continue to help them." Hebrews 6:10
Trinity Tripsters was organized in 1999 for the senior members of Trinity Lutheran Church. The membership began with retired members of Trinity Lutheran. Many people from other churches, or friends of our members, now join us on these events.
Trinity Tripsters is non-profit and is supported by the church. Each attending person pays their own way for the day's event.
There is one outing per month - just a day trip, no overnight stays. During January, February, and March we stay at the church for the event. We have a catered luncheon, preceded or followed by a program. We attempt to educate and entertain with these events. It may be talent from our church or from other sources.
We send out monthly flyers announcing our plans for the day. The flyer includes all the information (place, date & time, cost, and time of return to the church). Most programs are planned for daytime, as Seniors usually choose to not do much driving at night. Occasionally we do an evening outing, as it may be the only time that program is offered.
We travel by car and have volunteers who drive their cars. Each month we figure the mileage to the event and there is a minimal amount charged to ride. The driver is then reimbursed for driving their vehicle.
At times, the price of the meal is determined and we place an order and everyone eats a similar meal. As often as we can we let you select and pay for your own lunch.
If you feel you are interested in what we do just ask us about it, and we will invite you along!
Please call the church office (419-636-3387) to get the names of the Senior Directors who will be happy to talk with you.
Trinity participates in softball, basketball, and other sports activities. Please send your announcements and information on any Trinity Sports you would like to see posted on the Trinity website to Rhonda Fackler at the church office.
