Outreach

Outreach is expressing our love for God, our neighbors and ourselves by stepping outside our church walls and caring for those in need. This ministry takes us beyond just making charitable contributions to actively journeying with our neighbors.

Christmas Sharing

We, along with a number of other churches, help more than 90 families have wonderful Christmases by providing them with food and gifts. There are LOTS of ways to be involved in a variety of levels (mostly in late Nov. and Dec).

Midwest Shelter for Vets

We are neighbors to one of the homes used by the Midwest Shelter for Vets. We have partnered with them in a number of ways over the years.

Nursing Home

Each week, a group of parishioners brings communion to a nursing home in Winfield. This is a compassionate ministry of presence.

PADS (Public Action To Deliver Shelter)

On Monday nights, Millett Hall gets transformed into a temporary homeless shelter. On the first Monday of the month, parishioners from Trinity staff put out the beds, provide food, and offer hospitality through the night and morning.
