“Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless His people.”
— Saint Teresa of Avila
Merry Oaks Elementary Volunteers
Through our partnership with Merry Oaks International Academy, our neighborhood school with overwhelming challenges,
Holy Trinity members volunteer in a variety of ways. They tutor, mentor students, assist teachers, chaperone on field trips, put up bulletin boards, proctor exams, read books to children, distribute food, etc. We’re always looking for new folks to help out.
Our choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00. No auditions are necessary; all who enjoy singing are welcome to join in. On Sunday mornings choir members sit throughout the nave with their friends and families, supporting congregational singing. Then, they come forward to sing an anthem during the time of the offering. The choir takes the summer months off.
Young at Heart
Every Thursday at noon, friends of all ages gather together for a lunch prepared by one of our members.
The lunch is $3. The fellowship is priceless.
Beer and Hymns
Quarterly, we take over a neighborhood watering hole and
sing our best loved hymns together.
No sermon, no liturgy… just a lot of fun!
Would you like to serve as an usher? Perhaps you’d like to read the Bible lessons or serve communion. Preparing the altar is always rewarding. There are many ways to become involved in leadership. Let us know how you’d like to serve.
Fiber Arts for Charity
Do you enjoy knitting and/or crocheting, of have you ever wanted to learn? On the second Saturday morning of every month our Fiber Arts for Charity group meets in Corky Ingram Hall to make hats and scarves for people in need throughout Charlotte.
Walk with Us
Members of Holy Trinity frequently use their feet to walk with the poor and marginalized of our community.
You can walk with us for the CROP Walk to feed hungry people,
or in the PRIDE Parade to show love for the LGBTQ community, or join us
for a trip to a Moral Monday in Raleigh
as we walk beside those who are seeking justice for all North Carolinians.
Every Sunday during worship our nursery is staffed with a professional child care worker and one of our members serving as a volunteer. This is a great way to become acquainted with the youngest members of our Holy Trinity family. In order to serve in the nursery you’ll need to complete a simple background check. Let us know of your interest and we’ll get you started.
We have an active team of people who educate the congregation about health issues through printed material, temple talks and speakers. If you have an interest in helping other become healthy, consider joining them.
Women of the ELCA
Our women’s group meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm.
All women of the congregation are invited to be a part of this group that gathers for
Bible study and serves Holy Trinity, our conference, synod and
ELCA in a variety of ways.
Our Church Ministry Teams
On the third Sunday of every month, immediately following worship, our ministry teams meet to plan the work of the church.
If you’re not a part of one, come and sit in on a meeting. All groups are open to new ideas and new members.
• Children & Family Ministries
• Social Justice
Through our Sunday school you have the opportunity to be a part of a class or teach.
We have classes for age 3 through adult. They meet on Sundays
from 9:30 to 10:30 am. And typically take the summer off.
