  • Contact Information UPDATE: We are in the process of updating contact information for everyone in the church. If you haven’t already done so, the request is to fill out your attendance card fully with your address, phone, and email. Accurate information helps in the care we all want to show one another.

You can sign up in the sign up notebook in the hallway or contact Martin Carey at missions@trinitymilford.org. The recipients at Tender Mercies are very appreciated for what Trinity provides, and this is an important part of our outreach.
