Afghan Outreach Ministry
Trinity continues to have the great opportunity to welcome over 50 Afghan individuals and families that began arriving just before Christmas. By networking with several area organizations and churches, we can play a huge part in making this time of transition more comfortable.
Each week we serve over 250 local households, giving each family shelf stable groceries, produce, and meat that we receive.
A neighborhood initiative that grew to meet the needs of our neighbors facing financial insecurity. Each week an average of 40 local families come to get what they need in a safe, welcoming, and relational environment.
Children’s Clothing Closet
Trinity’s clothing closet collects gently used children’s clothing and supplies throughout the week as they coordinate distribution directly with families in need.
Community English Class
Language barriers can be a significant obstacle to overcoming financial insecurity. Trinity volunteers work to empower our neighbors with better English speaking, reading, and writing skills to overcome barriers to success.
Meeting each Monday night from 6:30-8:00 pm in the classrooms upstairs at Trinity West.
Trinity UMC has a Blessing Box where people can take what they need and give what they can.
- One is located on Seminole Drive near the upper sidewalk and entry to the Oxmoor church building.
- The second box is next to the gym at our West Homewood campus (914 Oak Grove Road).
