Service to others is one of the things that United Methodists have in common. Our denomination believes in being Christ’s hands and feet to the world. That’s why Trinity is so involved in great outreach ministries. Among the programs we support are Share (the local food bank); Martha’s Table (sandwich ministry and more); our mission work in Honduras and beyond; and Crafts for a Cause (creating comfort and care items for hospitals and those with special-needs). Those are just a few of the ways we offer support.
This is where you come in. We can use your help with two important upcoming events. The first is our church-wide Good Works Day on October 22. We’ll have a list of inside and outdoor projects that are needed around the church grounds. We’ll also have projects designed for all ages. Look for more information on Sunday mornings and on our website, umtrinity.org.
“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”

Another way you can give back is through Stop Hunger Now on November 5 at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Trinity is teaming up with people throughout the McLean community to fight hunger on an international level. We’ll help create and package 300,000 meals. Children, youth and adults are invited. To sign up for a shift, go to http://events.stophungernow.org/McLeanRotary2016.
If you have questions about any of the ways you can get involved at Trinity, don’t hesitate to ask Jim, Keith or me. We’re always happy to help.
