MISSIONS

Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.”
Isaiah 58:10

Trinity Lutheran is a mission minded congregation.  We support local, regional, and international efforts to reach out to those in need. 
 

Part of our identity here is caring for the least among us.

Why?

Because that is who Jesus is!

Our most recent mission was to fight world hunger.  Our Synod raised $58,000, and Trinity itself raised over $4,500!!  Matthew 6:21 Says “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Rest assured we do very cool and wise things with monetary means at Trinity.  And not just world wide, but also in the community we live in.  Food Pantry, blood drives, crop walk, SACS, and Habitat for Humanity are just some of our ongoing missions.  This righteous behavior is fun to participate in. 

It is a glorious thing to impact the world and see God’s Kingdom move.  It is wonderful to see people with purpose act.
