TLF and Community Resources Update

March 21, 2020

As our city, country, and world navigate an unprecedented health crisis,  our thoughts and prayers are with all who are impacted by COVID-19.  To help curtail the spread of COVID-19, Trinity Church has suspended all events. Via email and social media, Trinity provides resources for private and community worship, formation and connection. All volunteer opportunities are currently on hold, including the Trinity Loaves and Fishes (TLF) ministry. Rest assured, we are in touch with all the TLF community partners and are working to continue to address their needs during this time.

How can you help?

So many in our community are hurting, and while we are not currently distributing meals (but hope to again soon!), we are helping our community partners with financial contributions.
