Serve in Our Church
Ushers are the “face” of the church – for those who attend worship every Sunday as well as for those who are walking though our doors for the first time. If you or your family are interested in serving as ushers at Trinity, please contact Denice and Hubie Widmer at 952-200-9914. Training will be provided.
Along with the preacher, lectors proclaim the Word of God by reading the scripture lessons during worship. Hearing God’s Word is one of the most important reasons for gathering to worship and the lector duties are an important part of the worship celebration. If you would like to be a lector, please contact Terri Gens at 612-221-1862.
Children's Moment Presenters
At most Sunday services, children are invited forward for the Children's Moment. This short message encourages children to grow in their relationship with Jesus and relates the week's Gospel message to their own lives. If you are interested in being a Children's Moment presenter, please contact Pastor Jeff at 952-955-1891.
A Communion Assistant is charged with one of the most important assignments of the liturgy; the distribution of Holy Communion to the congregation. Schedules are organized for lay leaders to assist with communion on the third Sunday of each month. To learn more about the ministry of Communion Assistant, please contact Mary Sloneker at 763-219-2251. Training will be provided. (Schedule is determined in the month prior to service.)
The Altar Guild ministry is a gift of time and talent to serve God in His house by preparing the chancel area for worship. This includes preparing communion, monitoring paraments, candles, altar flowers and other elements needing care prior to celebrating God's saving love and grace in worship. New Altar Guild members are always welcome. Each team will be responsible for one full month of Altar Guild duties a year. If you are interested in helping with Altar Guild, please contact Eileen Nelson at 952-955-1491. Training will be provided.
Trinity offers refreshments and coffee during Fellowship Time each Sunday between services and following the single service during the summer months. Serving coffee is a wonderful way to share your generosity through hospitality. If you are interested in joining the coffee service team, please contact Denise Kaduk at 952-457-6241. Training will be provided.
Music is a meaningful way to express faith and Trinity offers many ways to be involved in worship. Please see the WORSHIP & MUSIC page for details.
Trinity is a lay led congregation, where congregational members take on leadership roles and our pastor provides guidance and support. Trinity’s Ministry Teams are led by volunteers who are passionate about sharing the love of Jesus Christ in various ways. They are committed to the success of the mission and ministries of Trinity Lutheran Church and welcome those who are interested in being a part of that passion. Please see the CHURCH LIFE page for a group that may be of interest to you.
Funeral/Memorial Service Team
The Funeral/Memorial Service Team facilitates a time of food and fellowship following a funeral or memorial service held at our church. A chairperson coordinates each event and volunteers are asked to provide cake or bars, set up and serve during the luncheon or clean up afterwards. If you would like to be on the Funeral/Memorial Service Team Volunteer list, please contact Eileen Nelson at 952-955-1491.
Church Office Volunteers
Volunteer opportunities in the church office include preparing bulletins each week, answering the phone, light clerical work, preparing church mailings and various other duties. If you would like to volunteer and are available daytimes during the week, please contact Robyn Behrens at 952-955-1891 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are always opportunities to volunteer at Trinity. As special events are planned, bulletin, newsletter and worship announcements will call for volunteers as needed. You are always welcome to lend a hand.
