Serve the Lord with gladness!
Psalm 100:2a

One of the biggest joys of the Christian is to serve one another in love. God calls us to be his “hands” on earth as we carry out his love for each other and reach out to those in need in the community and world. At Trinity, opportunities to serve and use your individual gifts and talents to God’s glory are limitless. Service is only limited by your creativity!
