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 below.
Mission of the Month: Family Promise
Trinity is the host at the Family Promise Home (Market Square) the week of June 17. Volunteers are needed for Monday the 17th, Wednesday the 19th, and Friday the 21st at the following time slots for each of these three evenings:
Two people are needed for each time slot. These two people need to have attended a one-hour training session. If you have not attended a session, you can do one online. Call Laurie Earnst, home director, 838-3651, for instructions to do the online session. The online training will be an hour long. Then you can visit the home for a tour. Hosts are there as a friendly presence. This time is great for a needlework project, reading a book, or visiting with families if they wish.
MEALS are also needed for Monday, Wed., and Fri. evenings at 5:30 p.m. You do not have to have a training session to provide a meal. Just have the meal in a disposable container at the house by 5:30. [A frequent meal is spaghetti and brownies. I am sure the families, though appreciative, can become tired of that. A casserole or other item would be nice.] Sign up on the Trinity FP Signup Genius or call Kay Franscoviak, 563-3258. Sign up at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0d4bacad23abfa7-family1

2019 Family Promise
The Family Promise routine is different, but volunteers are still needed to be evening hosts 3 nights a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), provide 3 meals, and to be a friendly presence on one Sunday. There will be 2 volunteers present on each occasion. The new location is at Market Square behind the new community center and has exceptional security measures in place. The residence is a lovely new home with a wonderfully large kitchen and dining area.
