Service & Community

Spring/Summer 2022 projects!

Outreach programs have and continue to be a major part of Trinity’s  community. With your donations to the “little red wagon”, we support the Lynchburg Area Food Bank.  We support Gateway and Interfaith Outreach as a part of our annual budget.

  • In the last few years, the Vestry has selected a specific charity to receive all the money collected in the Alms box during that year.  Last year, the chosen charity was Meals on Wheels.  At the end of 2021, $1,180.10 was collected and given to this charity through your generous gifts in the Alms box. 

  • Due to the expanded services of Meals on Wheels and the cost of gasoline, the Vestry decided to choose Meals on Wheels once again as our Alms box charity.

  • From now until June, our outreach donations will support Episcopal Relief & Development in Ukraine. An anonymous donor has already offered to match up to $1000.00 in donations made to the Episcopal Relief Development aid to Ukraine. If you choose to write a check, please write "outreach" in the memo line and you can also click the dropdown menu and select "Ukraine" on our Tithe.ly page to donate online.

Trinity’s message of Following God’s call and Welcoming All is an invitation to all of us to support our community, our neighbors, our mission.

Please contact Sallie Cochran, the vestry liaison to the outreach committee at scochran1@comcast.net or 384-5345 with any questions.
