Opportunities To Serve

There are numerous opportunities for members of Trinity United Methodist Church to serve and find a place where you can be a part of something bigger than yourself. Please find your place in the list below:

BACKPACK MINISTRY

The Emmett Wilson Sunday School Class is beginning the second year of supporting the children of Hornets Nest Elementary School through the Backpack Ministry. The members of the class pack the back packs each Wednesday afternoon with food items for the children to enjoy over the weekend. The backpacks are delivered to the school each Friday so that the children will have plenty of food and snacks over the weekend, then the empty backpacks are picked up on Mondays to be refilled!

You can help by donating new or gently used backpacks, or individually packaged food itmes such as:

100% Juice Boxes
Oatmeal, Grits, Cereal
Shelf Stable Milk
Tuna Kits
Mac & Cheese
Cracker Packs
Cookie Packs
Chicken Noodle Soup

Applesauce
Fruit Cans
Spaghetti O's, Ravioli, Chili
Canned Vegetables
Granola Bars
Pudding Cups
Pop Tarts
Vienna Sausages
Peanut Butter
Bottled Water
Goldfish
Graham Crackers
Pretzels
Rice Cakes

Any individually packaged nutritious, child friendly food is acceptable.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

A wonderful group of ladies has started gathering to knit or crochet prayer shawls for people in hospice. This group meets the second and forth Saturday of the month beginning at 10:00am in the FLC. If you do not know how to knit or crochet, don't worry! We will be able to teach you everything you need to know during your time at church on Saturday morning. Then you will be able to work on your shawl during the next two weeks. Bring what you have been working on, completed, or are working on now. This is a time to fellowship with those who are interested in providing a small piece of comfort and love to those who are in need. So far from the stories we have heard, the blessing has been to those who are excited about the knitted or crochet prayer shawls that they are making, and praying over as they are making them. The shawls will be blessed and taken to the Levine-Dickson Hospice House.
