Faith Partners’ Ministry of DeLand is a new community-based outreach program helping those in need within the DeLand community. Several DeLand-area churches have agreed to work collaboratively with Trinity in this endeavor to prevent duplication of effort and combine precious resources. Every third and fourth Thursday, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., volunteer representatives assist individuals and families in need of perishable and non-perishable food, hygiene items, prescriptions and utility assistance, as well as guidance and prayer support. Future plans include moving into a separate facility that will enable the ministry to offer life-skills training and case management.
On off-days, volunteers work to receive and stock in-kind food and other donated items. Volunteers are always needed and training is available. For more information, call the Church Office at (386) 734-4425.
On the fourth Friday of each month, Trinity offers a homemade breakfast open to everyone in the community. Generous servings of eggs, sausage, grits, fruit, and biscuits are shared with dozens of individuals and families in an atmosphere of fellowship and devotion. Prayer requests are shared by participants and passed on to Trinity’s Prayer Team.
Volunteers are always welcome and on-the-job training is provided! Call the church office at (386) 734-4425 for more information or contact Lana Saxon, coordinator.
Trinity has partnered with Citrus Grove Elementary School to provide for ongoing needs, including new school sneakers and socks for eligible children. With the help of a grant from the Florida United Methodist Conference and personal contributions from Trinity members and friends, over 80 students have received new footwear so far in this ongoing program. The children, along with their families and friends, come to Trinity to enjoy good food, fellowship and fun activities when sneakers are distributed. To learn more about this important ministry and how to volunteer, ask a member of Trinity’s United Methodist Women’s Ministry or complete a contact form. The program coordinator will contact you.
