Service and Outreach|
One week each year we welcome the Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter (MCREST) in partnership with Trinity Lutheran, alternating the host site each year. The host site houses people on a temporary basis, giving them a chance to get back on their feet. Many volunteers are needed, from cooks to drivers to overnight supervision. Watch the calendar for more information.
EXTENDING THE FEAST FOR LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES
On the first Sunday of each month, we take a collection for our local food pantries.
This practice comes to us from the ancient church. In that time, after all of the people gathered together had eaten, a deacon would take food to people in need. The feast was extended! We hope to continue that tradition. Please bring your donated items to worship the first Sunday each month.
