Serve at Trinity

Serve at Trinity

Our vibrant and active church community relies on the energy and talents of wonderful volunteers! Serving at church is a vital “next step” to finding your place of belonging at Trinity, and our volunteers say that the satisfaction and fellowship they receive far outweigh the time commitments. Please take a look at the list below to see what our current volunteer needs are:

Children and youth serve as acolytes during the traditional worship service. Training is provided. 

Our dedicated Altar Guild creates beautiful floral arrangements for each Sunday’s worship services and occasional special events. You will volunteer for 1 month per year and work with a few other volunteers each week of your chosen month to create the arrangement. Experience with floral arrangement is a plus, but training is provided. Contact Mary Ann Moore

Assist the Children’s Director with Children’s Time during the 11 a.m. service.

Teach or assist in a Sunday School class for children. Curriculum and training provided. 

Help provide transportation access to our church by shuttling guests from the church parking lot at the Library to our front steps on Park Ave. Ages 21+ only. Contact Mike Kasper

Help distribute the elements of communion. Contact Rev. Dr. Matthew Williams

One Saturday a year, Santa Claus visits Trinity! Children all over Tallahassee are invited to come meet him and enjoy some holiday cookies and fun. We need volunteers to set up and assist with the event. Contact Director Stacey Duggar

Often, following a funeral at Trinity, the family requests a reception in Moor Hall or the Parlor.  This group makes the punch and light refreshments and then serve as hosts during the reception. Contact Rev. Wayne Curry

Assist during the traditional services by reading scripture passages and leading responsive readings. 

Assist our Livestream Technician during the 9:45 and/or 11 a.m. services, and occasional special events. Training will be provided. Contact Zachary Cramer

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord by joining one of our choirs or musical ensembles! Contact Music Director Chris Titko

NETKids is our amazing afterschool program for elementary aged children! Assist the Children’s Director in leading crafts, games, outdoor fun, and lessons for kids. 

Assist as back-up to our office administrators by answering phones and the doorbell. Help may be needed with other light office tasks, such as stuffing bulletin inserts or mailers. Contact Melanie Gonzalez

If you have a talent for photography, we can use your help! Photography volunteers will provide content to the communications coordinator for bulletin covers, website, social media, and the monthly newsletter. Both landscape photography (of our church and campus) and event photography is needed. Contact Gabriela Denton

You can make an entire quilt or help with any of the stages:

  • Washing & ironing fabric
  • Cutting out a pattern
  • Sewing the top
  • Making the quilt “sandwich”
  • Sewing the bindings
  • Sewing the ties (by hand)
  • Saying a prayer for the recipient

Some of our members specialize in one or two steps and quilts are passed from one member to another for completion. We meet once a month for a workshop. Most of the work on the quilts is done at home. It takes approximately 8 hours to complete an entire quilt from start to finish and the timeframe for completion is usually flexible.

Basic sewing experience is helpful. If you’re a beginner, we have a basic quilting handbook available and are ready to teach new members the basics of quilting. If you don’t want to sew a quilt, we can use your help in washing, ironing, and cutting out a pattern. It’s quick and easy to learn how to sew the prayer ties onto a finished quilt which is done at most meetings.

Contact Rev. Wayne Curry

This volunteer bears the cross in and out of worship in procession, and leads the acolytes. Open to youth and adults. 

Do you like to cook?  This group meets in our church kitchen and has a wonderful time cooking delicious meals for Trinity members and friends who need a special ‘comfort meal’.   The meals are frozen and are made available to anyone in our church family. Contact Rev. Wayne Curry

Ushers & Greeters provide hospitality to all who come to Trinity. They are often the first people a new visitor meets so a bright smile and welcoming attitude are a must! Ushers should plan to arrive at least 20 minutes before the worship service and typically stay until about 10 minutes after worship begins to greet latecomers, distribute bulletins, and assist them with finding seats if needed. Ushers will work as a team to pass the offering plates. Training will be provided. 

Contact Dawn Adams

Dawn is the Congregational Administrator. If you would like to volunteer for any of the positions listed above, or are looking for a way to get involved, please reach out to her today.
