One of the ways we share the love of Christ is through ministry to those members of our community who are in particular need. The following lay ministries equip and enable us to care for one another as we ourselves would like to be cared for.
Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs)
The sacrament of Eucharist is a very important part of Episcopal spirituality and theology. For those who are ill or infirm and thus unable to come to church, LEVs will bring Eucharist to the home, nursing home, or hospital. LEVs make Eucharistic visits on the first and third Sundays of each month, following the 10:30 worship service from which they are commissioned. Prayer requests may be called to the Church Office 903-753-3366 or Rachel Darby, DOK Chapter President 903-297-5552 to request special prayers. You need not reveal the reason for the request.
Daughters of the King (DOK) are responsible for providing Agape Meals. Meals are prepared and delivered to parishioners who are recovering from hospitalization, the birth of a new baby, or for bereavement in the loss of a loved one Meals offer up to 10 servings and include a main dish (usually a casserole) plus salad, bread and dessert. A member of DOK is on call at all times to take requests for this service. Please call the Church Office, 903-753-3366 or Rachel Darby, DOK President, 903-297-5552, to request a meal and to provide any essential information about food allergies, such as gluten or dairy.
Each Sunday, a beautiful arrangement of flowers graces the altar of our church. Following the 10:30 worship service, members of the Flower Guild disassemble the arrangement, creating several smaller arrangements in recyclable containers. These arrangements are then delivered to Trinity members who are in the hospital or nursing home, or who have experienced a major life event in the previous week, such as the birth of a child, a bereavement, an illness or surgery, an important anniversary or a birthday.
