Missions & Outreach
The Missions & Outreach team at Trinity United Methodist Church is committed to fulfilling Jesus commandment to give to the poor and needy. In Matthew Chapter 19 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." This team heads a monthly mission offering to support the needy through different missions. Our 2021 Mission list is found below.
In addition to providing monetary support, this team is also responsible for planning community outreach activities. As a church, we strive to be here for our local community in any way possible. We provide opportunities for our church to reach out and touch the community around us.
Local Mission and Outreach offerings go to support our local 'hands on' mission and outreach projects in Juniata County. These funds are used to pay for community events, provide free refreshment for outreach projects, and fund various other mission projects of Trinity United Methodist Church.
Pill Bottle Ministry
Trinity UMC collects used pill bottles! They will eventually be sent to Matthew 25 Ministries in Cincinnati, OH. M25M use them to distribute medications at many of their medical staffed missions around the world. We pack and send the pill bottles to their Ohio facility. If they are not able to use any of the bottles we send, they recycle and use funds from the recycling to help pay for other outreaches they provide. All pill bottles need to be cleaned in warm soapy water, dried and all labels and residue removed before they can be sent to M25M. A collection box is available in the back of the Trinity Church Sanctuary.
