Trinity Mission and Outreach
At Trinity Church, our vision is to Follow Jesus Together. To live this out in community, we train and equip ordinary people of all ages to cheerfully go and do extraordinary things in the name of Jesus, using our various spiritual gifts and talents. We feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the imprisoned, care for the sick and vulnerable, and show love without expecting anything in return. We do these things so that we can give God great glory and that all may see, hear and experience God’s love in many different ways.
Partnerships To Support Homeless Ministries
Trinity Church partners with urban Nashville’s Light It Up Church several Saturdays a year to feed our homeless friends on the streets of Nashville. We provide a hot fresh balanced meal on Saturday mornings and serve over 60 hungry individuals we find on the streets.
Trinity Church partners with Open Table Nashville to provide meals and life-sustaining necessities to the homeless community on the streets and at resource shelters. We provide a variety of support at the shelters, from cooking and serving meals, washing and mending feet, providing clothing and durable shoes, setting up bedding and hygiene kits, washing laundry, helping order birth certificates, etc.
Open Table is a non-profit, interfaith community that disrupts cycles of poverty, journeys with the marginalized and provides education about issues of homelessness.
Partnership To Support Local Food Assistance Program
Trinity Church has provided for all JetPack students at Spring Hill High School since 2013. JetPack is a student weekend backpack feeding program resource partnership of The Well and Second Harvest Food Bank providing nutritious, non-perishable food to eligible children and teens of food-deficient households in our local Maury and Williamson Co. schools. Sponsorship for a student is $20 per month. We also collect needed food monthly for The Well’s pantry.
Partnership To Support Jail Ministry
Trinity Church partners with FreshSTART church in Columbia to minister to a variety of needs in jail ministry, a missional new church plant at Craft Memorial UMC. FreshSTART provides opportunities for missional outreach including the Maury County Jail. Our target outreach includes the greater Columbia area’s unchurched families – adults, children, and teens – impacted by addiction, alcoholism, incarceration, poverty, or other life traumas.
- Behind Bars – We create hand written letters and bookmarks of encouragement, reading glasses, softback journal composition books, loose-leaf paper, envelopes, white socks and other supplies to the women serving time at Maury County Jail.
- Celebrate Recovery – We host a Friday night free meal to feed @50-60 adults and children several times a year. Celebrate Recovery is Christ-centered recovery program held at Craft Memorial UMC each Fri. night, focusing on healing for anyone’s hurts, habits or hang-ups that prevent living out our best lives. Celebrate Recovery is guided by Scriptures and 8 Principals of the Beatitudes, bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, healing, and the opportunity to give back.
Fall Mission Trip
Trinity Church organizes an annual multi-generational mission trip to various U.S. locations. We like to serve where others have refused to serve, to help meet the needs of the most vulnerable. Volunteers of all kinds of skill sets work together as a cheerful team to provide safer, drier and warmer housing; lend an outreached hand to the lonely and hopeless; and appropriate basic household necessities for those in great need.
Special Needs Ministry
Trinity Church's Special Needs Ministry offers periodic respite nights for parents of children with special needs, with leaders experienced and prepared for children in this unique ministry setting. Respite Night is a fun-filled evening for kids with special needs and their siblings. Our volunteers make sure that kids play in a safe, loved-filled environment, so mom and dad can take some time for themselves.
Adopt A Highway
Trinity Church has adopted a portion of Highway 31. A few times a year volunteers meet on a Saturday morning to clean up the roadside, to keep our city looking beautiful.
Stuff The Bus
At the beginning of each school year, Trinity partners with local Spring Hill schools to provide school supplies for kids who may need a little help getting the supplies they need to be prepared for school.
Operation Christmas Child
The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. This is an international mission project of Samaritan’s Purse. Trinity Church organizes a collection of gift-filled shoeboxes from Trinity families to ship to children in 100 countries around the globe participating in this evangelistic outreach program to take Christ into the world.
