Fellowship Clans


MacAlister Clan is made up mostly of retired couples and singles who have in common the interests of grandparents & great-grandparents. Please feel free to join us for any of our meetings; just watch for an announcement of our meeting in the bulletin on Sunday. At one of the first meetings of the year a booklet is provided with member and meeting information.
We usually meet on the third Sunday of the month January through March. We gather at local restaurants for lunch following the traditional worship service. Some of our other meetings are outings to places of interest. Otherwise, we meet at the church or one of our homes for a program and fellowship. Traditionally, we meet in December at the home of Al & Marilyn Wood for a carry-in “smorgasbord” and to sing carols. It has been our custom to support Operation Christmas.


MacDonald clan was organized during the 1970’s by a group of people that still attend.  
Our activities during the year included the following:  
February – Annual Super Bowl party hosted by Scott & Jane Moline.
April – Spring cleanup at the church headed by Dave Grissom.
June – Monday Mourners hosted by Tom & Sue Kimball for the whole congregation.
August – Listening to music at Summerset Winery hosted by Mike & Susan Lathrop.
October – 3rd Annual Crabfest hosted by Joel & Deanne Herr.
December – A planning meeting hosted by Brad & Carmen Eveland.

We are always interested in new people, new ideas and new ways to serve our church and community.


​MacDuff Clan likes to socialize, eat, sing and get outside for new adventures that will bring us closer together in the Trinity family.

​In December of 2015, after a Sunday afternoon of Christmas caroling at the doors of special Trinity members, we gathered at the home of Jon & Margaret Vernon for a potluck dinner.  Following, we had a planning session for activities for the next year.
March 1,  we met at the Warren County Historical Building to hear Jerry Beatty describe some history of our county and to look over copies of the three books he has published on Warren County Agriculture, Rural Schools and Civil War involvement.
April 29, we car pooled to Summerset Park for our annual bird watch on the bike trail, led by Al Farris.  A brunch followed at the Farris home.
June 26, Tom and Sue Kimball, MacDuff and MacDonald Clans hosted a church wide hoe down in the Kimball’s back yard.  It featured Aaron Tinder’s band, Monday Mourners, and ice cream from the Outside Scoop. 
August 13, a cookout was held in the back yard of  Al & Kathie Farris. 
November 5, a tour was made of the World Food Prize Building in Des Moines followed by lunch at Okoboji Grill.  

New members are always welcome – see the church bulletin and newsletter for future meetings as they approach.
