Every week the Trinity Outreach Center right here on the Trinity campus serves families in our community through Sunday Dinner, the Mid North Food Pantry, St. Nicholas Early Learning Center, and the Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic. This fall you can connect with someone to sign up to distribute meals with Sunday Dinner and learn more about volunteering with a new expungement program at the Legal Clinic. We would love to have you join us as we serve our neighbors!
Mask Making Ministry
We’re thankful for the team of sewers here at Trinity who have already made over 200 masks for children and adults this summer. Sunday Dinner volunteers are distributing them to our neighbors in need every Sunday. Additional masks have gone to the children and staff of St. Nicholas Early Learning and other outreach partners. As fall and winter approach we want to keep sewing! Join the mask making ministry here at Trinity and put your skills to use. We can help supply you with fabric and other supplies if needed. Email ministry organizer, Cindy Strietelmeier, at [email protected]
