Mission and Outreach
Trinity has a long-standing commitment to mission in the local community and throughout the world. Outreach activities range from quarterly service trips to pack meals for Feed my Starving Children to the Church School's support of a child in Sri Lanka.
The Trinity congregation collects food for the township food pantry, makes meals for PADS, a Lake County program for the homeless, buys Christmas presents for children and retired residents of the Bensenville Home Society, and provides household goods and financial support for refugee families as they settle in this country.
Mission giving to the UCC Conference supports outreach related to the UCC's core values of
Continuing Testimony, Extravagant Welcome, and Changing Lives. Special offerings, such as One Great Hour of Sharing and Neighbors in Need, go to help victims of poverty, natural disaster, and oppression in the United States and throughout the world.
