Faith and Action
(Also known as Christian Responsibility, Social Concerns or Social Justice) Jesus calls us to care about the things God cares about, and the New Testament is clear that we are called to care for the poor, the homeless, the marginalized and vulnerable. Trinity members are involved, individually, in many areas. Here are some which are taken on by our congregation.
Over-all Coordinator of this ministry area is the Vice President of Trinity- Libby walker. If you have a new Social Concerns Ministry idea, great! so that we can coordinate efforts, check with libby first.

Kiva Loans At the 2010 Elsie's Tea, members of TLC pooled their resources to finance a "microloan" through Kiva. These microloans provide entrepreneurs all over the world an opportunity to expand or start their business with the goal of alleviating poverty. Since November of 2009 Kiva has facilitated over $100 million in loans and we are so happy to be a part of this great program!
