“When we break bread together we create companions”…we create relationships that nourish us. Nowhere is this more evident than on Sunday mornings at Trinity. After we gather at the communion rail our Fellowship Team invites everyone in attendance to join together in our parish hall to have coffee, juice, and a sweet treat while we enjoy each other’s company in an informal, relaxed setting. Throughout the year special occasions arise, such as a Bishop’s visit, honoring confirmands or graduates, and the Fellowship Team is there to help organize whatever the occasion demands. The team is also responsible for providing brunch at our annual meeting, lunch on “clean-up” Sundays and planning an array of other special events such as our annual adult barbecue and our well attended Advent Dinner. Gathering together, getting to know one another better, strengthens our relationships and makes Trinity a stronger family.
PASTORAL CARE and OUTREACH:
There are abundant opportunities for individuals in our congregation to exercise their time, talent and treasure to help and empower each other and the greater community. Members of Trinity Church regularly volunteer and support community organizations in a variety of ways such as collecting and distributing food and clothing and volunteering their time and talent. Members are active in historical preservation and the dissemination of local history.
Our fundraising programs and Vestry allocations provide financial resources to:
•Marshfield Community Christmas
•Marshfield Food Pantry
•Outreach, Inc. (a food packaging program to supply local food pantries)
•Carolina Hill Shelter (a family homeless shelter)
•Sowing Seeds (to provide goods and services such as clothing, transportation, legal advocacy and housing services).
Other Ways we support the community:
•Trinity Knitters’ busy hands knit beautiful prayer shawls for those who need care, love and healing.
•Our Lay Eucharistic Visitors take communion to those unable to come to church.
•Our participation in the Marshfield’s Farmers Market, where we sell home-made cookies to the greater community, allows us to support a global outreach effort while increasing our presence in the community.
•Rev. Noble is a member of the Marshfield Housing Partnership.
Trinity continues to explore ways to expand our visibility and reach within the community. Foremost, we hope that all we do reveals God’s love to our community.
“WOTCH” (Women of Trinity Church)
WOTCH is a potluck supper we hold the first Friday of every month (September though May) at a different parishioners home. It allows the women of Trinity to gather in an informal setting and talk and enjoy good food and fellowship. All women of Trinity are invited and encouraged to join in this fun and community-building activity. We all bring a dish to share and always have a great time.”
The Men’s Group meets the same night as WOTCH and at various locations TBA where the men of Trinity have an opportunity to gather together.
