Social Concerns

Throughout the year, Trinity participates in activities that focus on caring for those in our community who are in need. Regular events include:

Food collection projects such as “Souper Bowl Sunday”, Lenten food bags and Thanksgiving baskets. The collected food is donated to the food pantries of Lutheran Social Services and Central City Lutheran Mission, as well as to the Genesis House transitional housing program and other families in need.

School Supply project—Backpacks and school supplies are collected in the fall for students in the community. Recipients include the children at the Genesis House shelter and the after-school program at Central City Lutheran Mission.

Tree of Giving—At Christmas time, gifts of clothing, books, toys and household items are collected and given to families in need.

Food Bags—Ziploc bags containing food and water are available to be picked up and shared with homeless people in our community.

Shawl Ministry

Anyone interested in knitting or crocheting a shawl can join this group for fellowship on the third Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Beginners are welcome and assistance is provided as needed. Completed shawls are given to individuals as tangible expressions of our love and prayers.

Quilting Bee

Our quilting group meets on the first Saturday of the month in Cooper-Burkhart House at 9:00 am. There’s more to do than sewing, and we need help with all the tasks: cutting fabric, cutting batting, pinning layers, sewing and tying quilts. Everyone is welcome.

For more information on any of the above social outreach programs, please contact the church office.
