FIFTH SUNDAY CROSS
This outreach ministry is a powerful way Trinity’s congregation can reach-out and help those in need in our community and beyond. A large cross in the Nave is filled with slips of paper with opportunities to bring in items for those in need, every fifth Sunday of the year.
We ask you to select a slip and bring in a needed item so, we can share God’s love and grace
