Church & Society, Missions

by Kelly Slone

April Collection Drive

Thanks to everyone who provided donations of clothing for men for Christ House and all the juice boxes, granola bars and coffee for the Carpenter’s Shelter. Christ House, located in D.C., provides medical and hospice care for the homeless. Carpenter’s Shelter, located in Alexandria, is an 80-bed facility that provides food and shelter for homeless men, women and children, along with child care and employment assistance. Both organizations really appreciated your donations.

May Collection Drive

During the month of May, we’re collecting cans of baby formula (with and without iron), jars of baby food (vegetables, fruit and meat), boxes of baby cereal and disposable diapers (any size) to help the families served by Fairfax Area Christian Emergency & Transitional Services. FACETS was created to respond to the many needs of homeless and low-income people living in Fairfax County. Please leave your donations in the collection closet located in the Fellowship Building.

Martha’s Table

Please be a part of this wonderful ministry. On the second Sunday of each month we make sandwiches to feed the hungry in Washington, DC. You can help by buying the bread, by delivering the sandwiches or being a kitchen helper. You’ll find the sign-up sheet in the Fellowship Building.

Interested in Volunteering in Our Community? The Church & Society Committee is seeking new volunteers and ideas on how Trinity can serve the community! Please contact Kelly Slone at kslone@nvca.org and find out how you can help make a difference. There are a variety of projects/organizations the Committee is actively involved in, including: tutoring children at Stanton Elementary; making lunch and visiting the homeless at Christ House; and working with SHARE, Martha’s Table, Habitat for Humanity and ChildHelp.
