Faith in 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.
SOCIAL JUSTICE ACTIVITIES AT TRINITY HAPPEN IN A VARIETY OF WAYS:
Food Donations: There is a shopping cart just inside the church doors for ongoing food contributions for local food banks.
Monday Quilters gather Mondays in the Fellowship Hall from 2 to 4 p.m. to create tangible gifts of caring. Quilts are sent world-wide through Lutheran World Relief
Trinity participates in the CAC (Community Action Center) for immediate needs: food, gas and housing
Each year Trinity designates benevolence funds for Local Support Agencies
ANNUALLY Trinity participates in a number of programs. Here is a basic outline:
