Backpack Blessings is a new ministry starting at Trinity to help children in our community who rely on schools for their meals during the week. We want to help out by providing nutritious food and snacks for each child to enjoy on the weekends. We will provide color coordinated lunch bags that they will first receive in their backpacks filled with foods and snacks for that weekend. Then, on a weekly basis, they can return their empty lunch bag of one color to receive another round of food in a lunch bag of a different color the following weekend. We will continue this method of exchange every weekend starting on August 12 at May Nissen Park.
We are asking for your help in donating:
Plain backpacks for school use only
Monetary donations for appropriate snacks and for the specific lunch bags
Lots of volunteers to help throughout the year to fill and hand-out snacks
Lots of prayers for this ministry to successfully reach our community that needs to know that Jesus loves them.
There will be a container in the foyer in Building A starting July 9.
The Helping Hands Ministry reaches out in a variety of ways to help members of our church and citizens of the Livermore community. Helping Hands is comprised of a volunteer group of Christ-focused servants, dedicated to sharing Christ with love and prayers. The group assists seniors in the performance of many tasks around their homes, provides transportation to medical appointments and grocery shopping; a team once a month visits seniors and for those who are unable to attend church services we observe the Lord’s Supper with them.
Helping Hands Ministry also financially supports the annual Giving Tree Committee which provides clothes and toys for needy children at Christmas time.
This ministry is currently on a break as we transition buildings and restructure our Homeless Ministry Program.
