During 2020, Holy Trinity launched two new ministries within which we work to deepen our connection to God, to our community, and to each other. All are welcome at any time to participate.
Soul Responsibility is a prayer and discussion group that seeks healing within a Gospel community. Meetings are typically held every other Sunday evening. Led by Nathan and Kelli Lawson, the group dives deep into the realities and challenges of living a truly Christian life, with Jesus as our example and God’s will guiding our hearts. To discuss how we can carry out God’s command to respect and love all our neighbors, we have centered discussions around popular texts and film, such as Eric Mason’s book “The Woke Church” and Raoul Peck’s four-part docuseries “Exterminate All the Brutes.”
Uptown Angels is a grass-roots community service group that offers food and basic necessities to those in need. Founded by Samantha Mairson, the group meets monthly to plan and assemble care kits, which are then distributed throughout the month. We are a mobile group that meets our neighbors where they are: As we travel throughout the city on our daily routines, we bring care packages with us and offer them to the displaced or homeless and those asking for assistance. We respect the dignity of each person, and we strive to have compassionate, face-to-face encounters: We hope to enable others to do the same by giving packages to parish members and others for their own distribution. We act as a bridge to support services in our community. Donations of packaged food, personal hygiene products, and plastic sealable bags are welcome. A website is forthcoming.
To participate or learn more, please email email@example.com. This email is used daily by Holy Trinity’s wardens and the parish administrator. Here’s a list of what we do:
*assist displaced and homeless individuals by providing basic necessities (toiletries, food, water) in care packages that we assemble as a group.
*meet people where they are and acknowledge their humanity by generating a meaningful encounter. We hope this inspires our members and others to treat every human being with respect.
*direct people to additional local resources, such as shelters, food pantries, and needle exchange programs.
*support neighboring Uptown parishes outreach efforts by providing care packages for distribution through their ministries.
*work toward the goal of establishing a community refrigerator in the Inwood/Dyckman area.
