Where your greatest passion and the world’s greatest need intersect, that is the place where God is calling you!
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. - Psalms 147:3
Pastoral Care is an essential part of our life together. This ministry includes:
Baptisms are celebrated here with great relish! One needs to contact the church office to set the date and plan for a personal conversation with Pastor Paul prior to the baptism.
Weddings are events that Pastor Paul loves to be a part of. One need not be a part of the official Trinity family in order for him to preside. Our beautiful sanctuary makes for spectacular ceremonies. Pastor Paul is also happy to conduct weddings at other venues as well. Pre-marital counseling and planning for the ceremony are required. To schedule your ceremony, contact the church office at 718/278-0036 at least two months prior to the event.
Pastoral counseling is provided by Pastor Paul in a private and confidential setting. Contact him to make an appointment.
Funeral services are provided for both official Trinity Family members and those who are not. Services can be held in our worship space, funeral home, outdoor garden, or the cemetery. Contact the church office or Pastor Paul for more information.
Making Peace with Your Past: Help for Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families – an intense confidential 12-week program of personal reflection and support/conversation group led by Pastor Paul.
Prayer Ministry is a new offering in our life together. Someone is available during Worship on Sundays to pray with you during the distribution of Holy Communion. Plans are being made to develop a Prayer and Care Team. Speak with Lisa Canellas if interested in participating.
Community Supper is always held on the 2nd Friday of every month from 6-8:30 p.m. All are welcome! This is a potluck affair, with folks providing what food they can to share. Contact Elizabeth Lacks for more information.
