Reaching Out to Our Community and the World
The Outreach Committee; a group of volunteer church members led by the Rector is a significant part of our overall ministry.
Trinity Episcopal Church is active in Outreach ministry, supporting our community through our ability to love, donate, care, help, and feed people in need. From feeding folks in difficult times to offering affordable childcare across the street to hosting a free Mammovan, Trinity Outreach wants to help. We have been offering the Hunt Country Stable Tour for 60 years now, not to raise money just for the Church or to save it up for a rainy day – but to give it back to the community when they need us most, year-after-year. That is our mission and with a faithful, loving Committee and Congregation, we seek God’s discernment for how we may fulfill this mission best for his Kingdom.
Trinity’s Congregation often is a force of workers, cooking meals, serving and donating time and resources. And, at times, Trinity seeks to be a friend, to offer what is needed, to be there when times get tough. Beyond funding and feeding, Trinity Episcopal Church is a part of the community, a gathering place for major and minor life events, a next-door-neighbor with a playground, an open-doors and welcome home kind of church, a neighborhood hiking and dog-walking trail, and a steady fixture in ever-changing days.
The mission of Trinity’s Outreach Committee is to provide comprehensive support to organizations that enhance and enrich the lives of people in need, with emphasis on sustainable and enduring projects that enable long term goals. Physical as well as financial assistance is provided through our Outreach program. Outreach funding is dispersed through a routine review process managed by the Outreach Committee. Proposals may be submitted to the Outreach Committee by any organization or individual with a Trinity Church parishioner as sponsor (for more information, see Outreach Submission Guidelines).
