The Trinity Lutheran Church Health Ministry shares God’s gifts of love and grace to promote spiritual, physical and emotional well-being.

Read below to learn more about the additional services we offer:

Blood Drive

Trinity hosts three Michigan Blood Drives a year. Our blood drives are usually on a Monday from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Centennial Hall. Please contact Sue Babin at 616.272.3902 to schedule an appointment or volunteer to bake cookies.

Remember the need is constant! One hundred pints of blood are needed every day in Kent County for transfusion patients.

Flu Shots

Flu Shots will be offered at Trinity on a Sunday morning in October, from 9 am until 1 pm.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self‑supporting through our own contributions.

AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

For more information, contact the AA office at 616.913.9216 (M-F, 1-5 PM), or the 24‑hour hotline at 616.913.9149, www.grandrapidsaa.org.

Al-Anon

Al‑Anon is a 12‑step program helping families and friends of alcoholics learn to live and cope with this disease. It is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al‑Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al‑Anon is self‑supporting through its own voluntary contributions.

Stephen Ministry

Trinity’s Stephen Ministry program provides distinctively Christian one‑to‑one care, support and friendship to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our congregation and community.

These times include, but are not limited to death of a family member or close friend; personal or family illness; depression; financial hardship; loss of a job; and birth of a child or other major life event.

Would you like to be connected to a Stephen Minister? Your Stephen minister will walk with you through this time in your life, prayerfully offering a listening ear and Christian friendship. Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry: those receiving care can be sure their identity and conversations will remain private.

Would you like to be a Stephen Minister? Trinity provides opportunities for those interested in becoming Stephen Ministers to receive training. There is always a need for qualified, trained Stephen Ministers with a heart to serve others.
