We are a downtown church that is growing in love and service through relationships with God and our community. We express this by serving the greater Lafayette community through a monthly missions focus and regular opportunities to serve the community. Check out the missions we support and our upcoming missions opportunities.
Mission of the Month: Food Finders Food Bank
One Mission, Two Events!
Mobile Food Pantry at Trinity September 6
The mobile food pantry will be at Trinity on Thursday, September 6th. Weather permitting it will be held outside. It will start at 4:00 but we’ve been told people will start lining up a few hours before that. We expect to serve 125 families, which is about 350 people. hese mobile food pantries are a great outreach because they reach people who have difficulty making it to existing food pantries and they often offer perishable items like produce and baked goods. To make this a successful event we will need:
Hunger Hike September 15 and 16
The Hunger Hike is a community fundraising event whose mission is to Raise Awareness & Make a Difference in the Fight Against Hunger—locally, regionally & globally. All proceeds from Hunger Hike benefit Lafayette Urban Ministry’s food programs; Food Finders Food Bank, Inc.; and St. Thomas Aquinas’ Haiti Ministry. This year we will have a team of walkers that will meet at Riehle Plaza and “walk the walk”. If you would like to join this team, contact Melissa Garcia at 765-414-0109 or email@example.com. Please also consider supporting the team by making a donation. Checks can be placed in the collection plate but be sure to indicate “Hunger Hike” on the memo line.
