Mission is our response to God’s love for us and for all the world. Through our mission, we feed, house, clothe and heal. We work for justice and equality for all people. We live out our calling by welcoming all at Trinity and by working for a better world.
Trinity’s mission is bigger than a set of programs. Our mission is as wide as our membership. We are in mission wherever our lives bring us -- in our homes, neighborhoods, places of work, and around the world. Trinity ‘s current mission projects include:
The Winger Food Pantry (named in honor of Trinity members Phyllis and Bob Winger who started the pantry more than two decades ago): Staffed and run by Trinity members who feed our neighbors in need. Members serve as coordinators, buyers, baggers, and work with our clients who come every Wednesday afternoon.
The success of the food pantry is a direct result of the outstanding effort put forth by our volunteers who give generously of their time, talent and money. These volunteers staff the pantry on Wednesdays, shop for food, stock the shelves, separate boy scout food, bag food, separate and bag Girl Scout personal care items, pick up bread from St. Louis Bread Company and bag it and donate money to purchase turkeys and all the fix’ins.
Habitat for Humanity: Over the past decade, Trinity has helped build multiple houses, providing construction volunteers and financial support.
SHED (Safe Homes for the Elderly and Disabled): Trinity is a founding member of this University City-based project. SHED matches volunteers with low-income elderly and disabled residents who need help to maintain their homes.
God’s Child: This mission builds houses for homeless families in Guatemala. Trinity members have made five trips so far, and continue to plan additional journeys to assist in this life-changing mission.
Locally and globally, Trinity works with our mission partners to transform and heal the world.
