Care Ministries

If you have a heart for senior shut-ins, this ministry could be for you. We reach out and offer support to church members and their family members who are reside in care facilities and/or are unable to attend church. Visitation Team members send cards of support and encouragement, make phone calls and make one-on-one visits in service to the homebound. They can also offer the sacrament of Holy Communion during their visits.   For more information, please contact Rev. Brenda Beaver at 817-274-1345 or  brenda@trinityarl.org.”

If you have a heart for our country’s Service Members and would like to support them through prayer, this ministry is for you. We maintain an active Military Prayer List and shares the names of our service men and women, reminding them to be more intentional in prayer for those persons who serve in our country’s military.  If you would like to join this ministry, contact Rev. Brenda Beaver at 817-274-1345, or brenda@trinityarl.org.

Prayer is a vital part of the ministry of Trinity as we believe it advances the mission of Jesus Christ and helps build the Kingdom of God. Prayer not only changes others but it changes us as well. Prayer requests for oneself, a family member, or for someone who needs prayer can be made by completing the Prayer Request form located in the Sanctuary pews. Please place the form in the Offering Basket in worship. You can also submit a Prayer Request by calling the Church office at 817-274-1345 or by e-mailing the Church at office@trinityarl.org.

Any telephone prayer request that is received after hours will be recorded by the Church’s answering service and then forwarded to the Pastors the next day.  If the need is urgent, the answering service will immediately notify a pastor.

The ministry of a Parish Nurse is to offer blood pressure checks, teach CPR classes, organize blood drives, facilitate Wellness Fairs, and facilitate workshops focusing on the health and wellness. Trinity also offers a Health Information Series workshop every other month.  For questions about Faith Community Nursing or if you would like to volunteer in this ministry, please contact Anita Mitchell, R.N., at the Church Office, 817-274-1345.
