LEADING BY EXAMPLE
This program was the very first action taken by our new Church in its’ formation meeting on May 5th, 2004. It was decided that, from day one, all parish collections would be the source of a ten percent tithe to go to help needy people in the community. This response to biblical requirements has led to aid for over 200 recipients, both individuals and organizations, and over $ 20,000.00 has been distributed in the form of $100.00 checks.
HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF
When the sad news of the East Coast disaster struck the entire congregation reacted with a special collection which was forwarded to the Anglican Relief and Development fund for their distribution to those in desperate need.
GIRL SCOUT TROOP
For the past year a local troop has had, free of charge, the ability to use the Church Facility for their weekly meetings. Their appreciation is shown by the thank you card pictured.
CHRISTMAS FOR KIDS
The bad economy has taken its toll on this community and there are many children that would not have a very happy Christmas without help, so Holy Trinity supports the Christmas Tree Project where children in needy families are given the opportunity to write their letter to Santa, these letters wind up as tags hanging on a tree from which local Churches supply the gifts. This year’s tree is pictured.
The gifts will be delivered Friday the 21st of December
MILAN FOOD BANK
Five area Churches have worked together to collect, store, and distribute food to families needing support. The collections come in to the local parishes on an ongoing basis, they are then delivered to the food bank located at the Presbyterian Church, the shelves are stocked and then the distributions are made by volunteers from the five supporting Churches. Every other Friday needy families come to the food bank for help. This testimony is from a Parish couple that has taken the leadership role for Holy Trinity.
“Through Holy Trinity, my husband and I have the awesome opportunity to volunteer for the local food bank. Four months a year and we look forward to the experience. We enjoy giving back to our community and meeting others”
