Who Are We?
We are a diverse group of housed and unhoused people who strive to celebrate and use God’s gifts to build up our community by practicing and proclaiming the radical and inclusive love of God.
We are old and young; women and men; girls and boys; from all races and ethnicities; from all faith traditions and no faith traditions at all; in sickness and in health; believers, doubters, and seekers; poor, rich, and on the edge; employed, un-employed, and under-employed; here by choice or by chance. You are welcome here!
Thursday, December 27 at 1:30pm
Join us for a service of remembrance for people who have experienced homelessness, and have died in the past year. In partnership with Cornell Scott Hill Health Center. If you know of someone whom you would like to be remembered, email email@example.com
Christmas Pageant Toy Drive
People are invited to bring donations of unwrapped toys to the Christmas Pageant on December 9. These donations will be brought to r’kids Family Center for distribution to children and families in New Haven. Donation guidelines: we will accept unwrapped toys of a non-military nature for children ages 3 mos through 10 years. Contact Bob Windom with any questions about the Toy Drive.
The Giving Tree
During the Holiday Season, the Giving Tree appears in the Narthex at Trinity. The ornaments on the tree represent specific requests and needs of people in our community. Participants are invited to take one or more ornaments, buy the gift, wrap it, and tape the ornament to the top of the gift. Gifts will be collected in a box in the Narthex and distributed by Debby Kraemer.
