Church & Society
The Church & Society committee provides service opportunities within the community, and educates us as to how we can make a difference. Hands-on volunteering and donations help support SHARE, Christ House, Martha's Table, and more.
Martha's Table: December 3, 2023
Martha's Table's emergency food programs provide help to vulnerable populations by providing lunch and dinner daily to hundreds of homeless and low-income people, emergency grocery bags and weekday meals to 300 children and youth in their programs.
On the first Sunday of the month, Trinity volunteers make 500-600 bags of trail mix for weekday distribution by Martha's Table in Washington, D.C. The snack bag assembly line is fun and makes a difference in the lives of hundreds of people in our community. Volunteer to help deliver the bags.

Crafts for a Cause: Every other Monday
Trinity's craft group meets twice a month on Monday evenings to make comfort items used in local hospitals and shelters. They also make dresses and dolls in Uganda. They also host a craft bazaar in the Fall to raise funds for the material costs of the projects. All adults are welcome to participate. Materials and instruction are provided. Sometimes there are tasks that can be completed at home, too. For more information, please contact Alesha Luxon.

This committee is dedicated to funding and providing individuals to work in areas of the world where building and rebuilding is needed. In June 2008, this group worked through a United Methodist Disaster Recovery Ministry in Louisiana to rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In Spring 2010, a team of 10 people worked with a children's orphanage in Guatemala. Since then, our mission in the world has extended to Ethiopia and Honduras. Read more about our mission trips on the Mission page and blog. Contact: Chris and Dan Moore.
