The Mission of Trinity Lutheran Church Small Groups is to offer all people of God the opportunity to grow as disciples of Jesus. Trinity Lutheran Church Small Group members gather in the name of Jesus to listen to God, to care for one another, to serve the church and community, and to welcome the stranger.
Open Hands to Serve and Pray
"Open Hands: to serve and pray" is a Lenten Small Group Sampler that has been volunteering at various places around the community this year. Together they serve, then reflect on the work they've done, and close in prayer. To see what they've been up to, click here!
What is a Small Group?
Trinity is a church where every member is a growing disciple. Small groups foster that growth through Bible study, prayer, fellowship, mutual support and service projects. Small groups are made up of usually 8 - 10 members that will meet about every two weeks for a year. Each group is led by a trained leader.
How Can I Join a Small Group?
Small Groups at Trinity launch once a year in January. We call them “Interest” groups, as they have a specific topic or focus, and there are many Bible Study groups. There are a few Small Groups that begin in the spring as well. After groups have been meeting for a year, they disband and branch out to form new groups with new topics, and invite new members to join. Many Small Groups meet throughout the year as ‘on-going’ groups and welcome new members at any time. You can join a Small Group now. For more information, call the Trinity office at 236-1333.
Trinity has many "Servant" small groups, too. Join a Servant group at any time during the year and get to know others as you work and serve together.
Who Are the Group Leaders?
The group leaders have been members of small groups that have focused on leadership training. They have completed one year of small group experience where they have had opportunities to practice leadership roles, lead Bible studies, carry out service projects, lead prayer, and learn about shepherding a small group.
How Can I be a Leader?
There are two ways you can become active in a leadership role. Both will take specific training. Church members may choose to join a small group specifically designed to train leaders. The other option is to become a trainee under the leadership and guidance of a small group leader of a group you join. All leaders attend a training session in early January. Call the church office and ask to talk with the Director of Small Group Ministry if you would like to become a trained Small Group Leader.
If you have questions or would like to join a small group, contact the Trinity office at 218.236.1333.
