Outreach Ministry

“For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in…”
Mathew 25:35 (NKJV)

Trinity Church has a long history of service to the community and we support a wide range of outreach efforts. Through the Outreach Committee and the Surprise Shop, parishioners are fulfilling Christ’s call to love and serve one another. Here is a list of our outreach activities and more information about how to get involved in our programs and projects.

Ongoing:

  • Second Sunday Breakfast
    The church opens its door to the community on the second Sunday of the month to share breakfast with all who wish to join us. (Monthly September-May)
  • Meals for “The Table” at Towson
    Each month we prepare and deliver hot dinners for “The Table,” Towson University’s Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministry, so that college students may break bread and worship together.  (Monthly September-May)
  • ACTC Thanksgiving BasketsI
    n collaboration with the ATC (Assistance Center of Towson Churches), we work to collect food, organize Thanksgiving baskets and distribute them to the local community

ACTC

The Assistance Center of Towson Churches offers an ecumenical program that provides help to the poor and needy families in our community. It began as a result of a study conducted by the Towson Area Ministerial Association exploring an effective and efficient way to meet the needs of people coming to churches requesting help. Fourteen churches joined together to form ACTC. A consortium of 50 churches now participate in the outreach effort. The Assistance Center opened in 1985 to give emergency assistance, including food, eviction and utility cutoff prevention, payment for prescriptions and lunches for the homeless. Today, a G.B.M.C. nurse practitioner helps with medical matters. Its service area incorporates 21 zip codes in Central  Baltimore County extending up to the Pennsylvania line.

WorkShip Events:

What is a WorkShip event?
A WorkShip event combines a Eucharistic service with outreach. So we combine “worship” and “work” to form WorkShip!

Summer 2017 WorkShips

    Epiphany House is a program of GEDCO (Govans Ecumenical Development Cooporation), Senior Services-providing studio apartments for older and low income adults and adults with disabilities. This Trinity WorkShip event provided necessary household cleaning items, toiletries, bedding and a printer for the residents.

    This Trinity WorkShip event worked to collect, sort, pack and deliver backpacks and school supplies for underserved students at the school.

If you feel called to live your faith through good deeds, we hope that you will join our Outreach Ministry in following Christ’s example: “This is My commandment, that you love one another s I have loved you.” John 15:12 (NKJV)
