Missions and Outreach
Trinity Church is dedicated to partnering with and supporting others in our community and elsewhere in the world, especially those in need. We believe in the spiritual value of accompanying those who are struggling, having found that we ourselves also receive as we reach out to offer what we can to others.
We strive to do this in a number of ways:
Thanksgiving Baskets for neighborhood families who are food insecure
Christmas Is Not Your Birthday—Annual donations to support specific community health and anti-poverty initiatives.
Mentors with students at Sumner Ave. Elementary School
Urban Potential is a 501c3 non-profit created by Trinity Church to celebrate, support, and enrich urban life in the Greater Springfield area. UP currently supports:
- SPARK!—an after school program that provides a safe environment for middle school students to receive homework support, enrichment activities, and mentoring
- JFON—Justice for Our Neighbors provides free or affordable legal services for immigrants and also offers meals to families on clinic nights
- Urban Challenge — a multi-day immersion program introducing people to urban life and celebrating life in the city. You can get a more complete picture of the scope of this program by visiting the Urban Challenge website.

Trinity has supported the Nicaragua Covenant since 2013 with both donations and an annual mission trip. Members of the mission team have helped provide clean water and sanitation as well as build stoves, deliver material donations, and assist with feeding programs and the mobile health clinic, among others.
With the current unrest in Nicaragua, the Nicaragua Covenant has been forced to decrease their operations. This is the statement from their FaceBook page:
