Trinity Episcopal Health Ministries

Trinity Episcopal Church in Sutter Creek has had for sixteen years a Health Ministries that provides both in-reach and out-reach components as they minister to people fully in body, mind & spirit. Out-reach ministries to Amador County for the body have included services of Parish Nurses, a Community Medical Equipment Loaning Closet and scholarships for medical & dental emergencies.

Outreach ministries for the mind have included development of a Counseling Center with a licensed Counselor and scholarships for counseling services for those in need.  In addition one Parish Nurse has been involved with the Amador Mental Health Department in development of the CA Mental Health Services Act and connecting county faith communities to the programs being developed. This project included receiving a grant in 2012 from Episcopal Community Services to “Address Depression & Suicide Prevention Through Faith Communities.  The latest addition is the development of a community support group “Sojourners” that meets at the church for People struggling with challenging relationships.  Out-reach ministries for the spirit have expanded to include having a trained Spiritual Director, Centering Prayer Group and a Prayer Shawl Ministry available to the Community.
