Have you been looking for ways to get involved and make a difference? There are myriad opportunities for service to the community, but it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to matching your skills and interests with the need. Fortunately there are a couple of new ways for you to learn about volunteer opportunities and to get involved:

  • First, check out Trinity’s newly revised and updated Reach Out and Serve booklet. Copies are available in the Narthex.
  • Another option is to explore the United Way of Henderson County’s Volunteer Matching Program—an online, mobile-friendly portal within UWHC’s public website, listing volunteer opportunities at non-profit agencies located in Henderson County.  Members of the public can now view and apply online for volunteer positions that fit their skills and interests. Access the site by visiting www.liveunitedhc.org and click on the “volunteer” button.

Two or three times a year, a group from Trinity dons hip boots, wades into Brittain Creek at the Blythe Street bridge and walks/wades toward town for about 1/3 mile. Our purpose is two-fold: to pick up trash and to monitor different aspects of the stream for reporting back to Mountain True, our area conservation and environmental non-profit. Recently Bob Stanfield, Charles Keefer, Saroy Palmer (frequent visitor to Trinity), and Tom Karvonen spent about an hour on this project, clearing the creek bed of about ten pounds of trash. Anyone interested in communing with nature while helping to care for God’s creation should contact Tom Karvonen at This email address is being protected from spambots.
