Our mission is "to know Christ and make him known through an inward journey of faith and an outward journey of service." There are many ways to deepen your connection with fellow parishioners and the community through service outside and inside the walls of Holy Trinity. Mark Lile-King, Minister of Welcome, Engagement and Pastoral Care, is happy to help you find where you can share your time and talents. Contact him at 336-272-6149 ext. 272, or .
The Angel Tree program provides Christmas gifts to children who might not otherwise experience the joy of Christmas morning. Gifts from children's wish lists are hung on a Christmas tree in the Parish House for parishioners to choose and purchase. Gifts are collected at Holy Trinity and distributed through Hot Dish & Hope (see below), Church of the Holy Spirit, Department of Social Services, Partnership Viillage and Triangle Health Project.
CAN DO Sundays
The third Sunday of every month is CAN DO Sunday, when parishioners can bring needed grocery items to church to be distributed by One Step Further to the Community Support and Nutrition Program. All programs at One Step Further are free to those in need. Its grocery assistance program serves 4,000 individuals every month. You can see the need list here and bring items to church or the church office the third Sunday of each month.
We also work with One Step Further to distribute Thanksgiving meals. More information on that program is available in November in the church newsletter.
Holy Trinity has partnered with Church of the Holy Spirit, an Episcopal mission on Yanceyville Street, to provide meals for neighbors in need on the third Tuesday of the month. To volunteer, please contact Robin Farber.
Hot Dish and Hope
The statistics are staggering: Hunger affects thousands of people in our city and county. As a church, we work to fight hunger through Hot Dish & Hope, a program that offers a free meal and a measure of hope to more than 200 people each Tuesday and Thursday evening in the Mullin Life Center at First Presbyterian Church. Fourteen faith partners support this ministry and Holy Trinity has been a part of it for more than 10 years. Volunteers help plate meals and assist guests. You can support this ministry through volunteering. If you are interested in volunteering, sign up here.
Twice a year, Holy Trinity participates in a Hot Dish & Hope toiletry drive. Donated items help people who live on the streets or struggle financially to practice good hygiene, which supports overall physical and mental health. Dates and details will be available in the weekly ePistle newsletter.
Meals on Wheels
Hundreds of local seniors are homebound and struggle to obtain healthy meals and maintain human connection. You can help! On the third Monday of each month, Holy Trinity is committed to 10 routes for delivery of prepared meals and to lovingly connect with local seniors. Meals are picked up at 9 a.m. and the deliveries take no more than two hours.
Deliveries are made in teams and we often struggle to fulfill our commitment of 10 teams. If you'd like to become a team member, contact parishioners C. P. Eldred at or Russ Dunn at . Teams and individuals for pairing are welcome even if on a part time basis.
School Supply Drive
Every fall we hold a collection for school supplies to benefit a local school. Details will be in the weekly ePistle newsletter.
Hands-On: Holy Trinity partners with Community Housing Solutions on projects throughout the year to make our neighbor’s homes warmer, drier, and safer. Projects include exterior painting and interior repairs to walls, floors, kitchen, and bathroom, and outside debris removal. Through this ministry, we assist our neighbors in preserving their home value, building wealth for future generations, and we get to know our neighbors.
Advocacy: The Housing Working Group works with local faith communities and nonprofit agencies to advocate for maintaining and constructing affordable housing in Greensboro. Being the voice of Christ in our community, we advocate with the government, agencies, and developers on behalf of our neighbor’s housing requirements. We recognize the immediate need for temporary and permanent housing. Our primary focuses are on families with infants and school-age children so that they go to school with a good night’s sleep, ready to learn, and on the elderly so that they may age gracefully within their own homes.
Inside the Church
The Holy Trinity Greens Guild would love to have you join us in beautifying our church home with fresh green arrangements, gathered from nature, for the chapel altars and the Baptistry. We are organized into teams and work in two week shifts throughout the year with training provided for new members. If you would enjoy the creative, artistic ministry involved with this work, please contact Peggy Follin at , or Ann Vaughn at .
Condolence Note Writers
Do you like to send notes to friends and loved ones? Would you like to be a part of our ministry at Holy Trinity? Perhaps you would like to be a condolence note writer. This is a minster of care where writers send notes to those in the church who are bereaved. We would love to have you join us. If you are interested please email Rev. Sarah Carver at
Eucharistic Visitor Ministry
This is a ministry of sacrament and presence. We have a number of members who are trained and able to bring communion to those who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to get to church. If you could benefit from such a visit, please contact the Rev. Sarah Carver at .
“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7 Ushers are often the first face someone sees when arriving at church, so this ministry is vital to welcoming people to Holy Trinity. Contact Annie Slaughter, Liturgical Coordinator, for more information or to join an usher team.
All youth in 5th-12th grade are invited to become acolytes. Please let Annie Slaughter, Liturgical Coordinator, know if you would like to join the acolyte program. There is a required training session for acolytes every fall.
