At Holy Trinity, we care about our neighbors.
On Sundays, we bring in canned goods, paper towels, toiletries and other necessities, leaving them in the not-pretty-but-very-practical bins in our narthex (church lobby). Then, once a month, we bring our collection to the Family Network of Wyoming food pantry, where we also volunteer.
Easter offering to bring Jacob’s family to Grand Rapids
In 2019, we are dedicating our Easter offering towards purchasing plane tickets to bring Jacob Chol’s family here from Nairobi. Read more about this special project and learn how you can help!
Thanksgiving Basket Project
Every year, we gather the names of 25 nearby families who are struggling to make ends meet. Everyone takes a list of things we want to include in our “baskets,” and we ask the families if they prefer a ham or a turkey as their main course.
On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we fill our sanctuary with cardboard boxes and with the holiday foods, staples, toiletries and other items. Then we create an assembly line to fill the boxes: 6 cans fruit. 2 jars of spaghetti sauce. 1 bag potatoes. 6 cans of soup. 1 bag rice. 1 bag of pinto beans. 6 rolls of toilet paper. 4 rolls of paper towels. It goes on until we have three boxes full for each family. Then we load the boxes in our cars, along with the turkey or ham and the huge pumpkin pies, and deliver them.
