We are an inviting community of faith that serves Christ through worship, music, and outreach.
Trinity Outreach is a committee of three people who help in organizing monthly donations to many areas of Chautauqua County. Through the help of our generous congregation our ministry reaches many people in the community.
Some of the organizations that Trinity Episcopal supports are:
Agri-Business Child Development Center
In 2016-17 our outreach included collecting pajamas and preschool books for the children at the Fredonia Agri-Business Child Development Center. This Center has provided services to children of migrant farm workers and other income eligible, agricultural workers across the state since 1946.
This year 63 pairs of pajamas were donated during January.
Boys and Girls Club of Western New York
Each year backpacks and educational supplies are collected during the summer. These are donated to the Boys and Girls club to help students for the beginning of the school year.
Another outreach is the collection of “healthy snacks” for the Club.
Chautauqua County Rural Ministry
Trinity’s largest outreach is collecting food for the Food Pantry at Chautauqua County Rural Ministry. The Chautauqua County Rural Ministry is an interfaith human service agency. It is headquartered in the core area of the City of Dunkirk, the town adjacent to Fredonia. The Rural Ministry has been in existence for over five decades and currently operates twelve programs. CCRM has a strong foundation in the community and provides services for which no other organization is known for. Each year thousands of families are assisted through the operations with the basics of food, clothing, shelter and work opportunity.
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child, a program sponsored by Samaritan Purse, is a global outreach. Each year “shoeboxes” are filled with toys, gifts, and personal items to be distributed all over the world to girls and boys, ages 3 to 18. This is our tenth year to support this program.
Other supported programs include:
WALK MS: Dunkirk Walk of 2017
Lakeshore Humane Society - We like to help our “furry” friends!
Annual Christmas Family
