mission

Trinity’s motto is to “Glorify God, Share Christ’s Love, and Make New Disciples.” We are well known for our mission work and joyfully answer the call to serve God by serving others. The Mission Committee meets monthly to plan and discuss current and future projects. Our goal is to reach out to our community and beyond to support and fulfill their needs. There are many volunteer opportunities to serve others and make a difference in people’s lives. If you would like to be a part of our committee or volunteer for an activity, contact the church at 785-272-2620.

Special Offerings

One Great Hour of Sharing is the single largest way that Presbyterians join together to share God’s love with our neighbors in need around the world. Each gift helps to improve the lives of people in challenging situations through three programs: Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Special Development of People. This offering is collected during the Lenten Season.

Pentecost Offering is a way to build God’s household with children, youth, and young adults. The greatest portion of this offering stays with our congregation to develop and support our young people at Trinity. Other funds go to support young adult leaders serving in communities around the world as they grow through transformative Christian service. The offering provides advocacy and education that protects and nurtures our children and youth.

Christmas Joy Offering supports church leaders among us who have pointed us to God. Half of the funds go to honoring the faithfulness of current and retired church workers and their families in critical financial need (whether it is a family emergency, a health-care crisis or even assistance to pastors affected by natural disasters). The other half prepares the way for future leaders, making it possible for students to learn and grow in faith at Presbyterian-related schools and colleges and communities of color.

The Peace and Global Witness Offering draws Presbyterians together as active peacemakers and provides education and exposure to those who show us how to do this work well. It allows us to create resources for dealing with conflict and nurturing reconciliation as well stand in support of our global sisters and brothers because the peace of Christ belongs to people everywhere.
