Outreach

Outreach, Mission, Serving as the Hands and Feet of Christ

All these words describe the vital activity of doing God’s work for God’s people.  We are an active congregation striving to support those in need in our community, our nation and the world.

We are participate in a number of different projects, and encourage our members to participate in those that call best to their talents, concerns and love.

Our current list of activities (in no particular order) include:

Annual Mission Trip

The annual mission trip is open to adults and youth who have completed 8th grade.  We will soon send our 14th Mission team off to Neon, Kentucky to help local residents make repairs to their homes.  More Information

Trinity in the Garden

Trinity in the Garden provides lunch for disadvantaged people at the Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Columbus.  The congregation donates items for lunch and members prepare and service the meal on Sunday afternoons three times per year.

The Open Shelter

Four to five times each year, the congregation puts together over 200 bag lunches which are delivered to the Open Shelter on the fifth Wednesday of the month.  In addition to providing lunches, we also collect candles, flashlights, blankets and other items helpful to the homeless clients.
