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.
November Family Promise
November brings the last chance of 2019 to serve as a host for Trinity’s mission project Family Promise.
Hosts are needed for:
Meals for the families are needed at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The Family Promise Home is located at Market Square next to the North End Community Center.
Jubilee Christmas is December 14
Jubilee Christmas at Trinity is coming soon and you are needed to help with this ministry! On Saturday, December 14 at 10:00 AM, parents from 20 families will come to our church to “shop” for new toys for their children and enjoy refreshments. Trinity will be assigned children and teenagers by Lafayette Urban Ministry; we know that many new toys and cash donations will be needed. These cash donations will help provide hams, food certificates for the families and gift certificates for teenagers.
If you would like to make a donation, clearly mark an envelope for “Jubilee Christmas” and drop it in the offering plate or take it to the church office. There will also be a decorated box in the church office for toy donations. Toys should be new, in original packaging and have a non-violent theme.
Volunteers are needed to help organize the “store,” host families during Jubilee (which means help them “shop” and wrap), provide transportation if needed, and bake cookies for the party. Please complete the tear off sheet below and return it in the offering plate or to the church office. Call Kristi Evans (765-505-0210) or Susie Riley (414-3388), if you have questions. Thank you for helping parents be the heroes of their children’s Christmas!

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.
