Retired Men’s Group

The Retired Men's Group is for all men who are interested in connecting with other men in living out the mission of Trinity to: love, transform, and serve.

All men are welcome to attend the Retired Men’s Group monthly meetings. The programs include devotions and prayer, a guest speaker at Trinity or tour, followed by a discussion on how the topic relates to current issues and individuals’ faith journeys. This is a great way to get to know one another and discover ways to continue fellowship between meetings. Rolls and coffee are served. A free-will offering is taken to cover costs;  additional funds are accumulated and periodically donated to a worthy cause.
