Trinity was invited to join St Johnís United Church of Christ on Fifth Street to provide warm lunches twice a month to the homeless. St Johnís prepares and serves lunch on the second Saturday of each month and Trinity does the same on the fourth Saturday of the month.
There are three groups of about 8 people who plan, purchase, prepare and serve a warm lunch to approximately 20-35 people. We have just started to include our Young people to assist in these lunches. In addition to serving the lunches, we prepare bags for the guests to take away with them for another meal.
Funding for this program is through a generous donation from the Quarterman Fund along with donations received from businesses in the community including Bread Dough-nations from St Louis Bread Company.
Other projects and agencies promoted and supported by the Trinity Outreach Committee include: Episcopal Relief and Development, Church World Service Blanket program, Operation Christmas Child Ė a project of Samaritanís Purse, Project Backpack, Volunteers in Medicine, Salvation Army, Youth in Need, and Our Ladyís Inn.
