Missional Outreach

At the heart of Trinity is our commitment to serving and meeting the needs of others. Below are descriptions of the many ways in which we find ourselves called by God to be in service as a witness for Jesus Christ to others.

ALS provides shelter, training, and counseling to those in our community who are temporarily homeless to help them become self-sufficient again. The Shelter relies on over forty Arlington faith organizations to provide volunteers who assist in its operation. Trinity members prepare and serve a wholesome dinner to shelter residents on the first Friday night of every month. For more information, contact Brian Dietz at briandietzx@hotmail.com.

Almost every year, Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County prepares and delivers 942,000 meals to elderly and disabled persons. The median age of clients is 76 years. Pet food is also provided and additional aids such as electric fans, home repairs, and wheelchairs are available – all at no charge to the clients. For more information, contact Vicki Martinez at vc.martinez@sbcglobal.net.

Based on the efforts of a Girl Scout named Rebecca Read, Trinity has entered into a missions outreach ministry to collect and provide women’s sanitary supplies for our local shelter for abused women and their children. To donate to this mission, place sanitary supplies in the blue receptacles located in the ladies restrooms at Trinity. For more information, contact Karen Steer at steerka@tx.rr.com.

The School Supply Squad provides elementary grade-school supplies to the extremely poor and disadvantaged children living in east Arlington. With ten volunteers, we cover 28 elementary and two junior high schools, working with school counselors to identify the needs for each classroom. Ten years ago, this ministry served 17 schools; we now supply all current Title I schools and all identified “At Risk” children. For more information, contact Jim Burgess at burgess612@sbcglobal.net.

The Guatemala Stove Builders build stoves in the homes of impoverished people in Guatemala. Building a vented stove for the family means fewer bronchial and eye problems for the homeowners. This mission improves the financial situation of the community by hiring local workers to build the stoves and help the local economy by purchasing all building materials locally.
