TCC is a church that strives to make a difference in the world!
We’re constantly collecting food for 3 local food pantries, and collect for gift cards that are distributed to those in need. We recently began “Box for Sox”, collecting socks for the homeless in our area. We participate in various drives for Lazarus House Ministries and Bread & Roses, and send monetary support to Cor Unum.
Our pastor and diaconate participate in nursing home services, bringing comfort and cheer to those who are limited in their activities.
Our youth group and other church members visit Common Cathedral – learn more here.
Leading up to Thanksgiving Sunday we collect all the items needed for delicious Thanksgiving meals for local families. We fill and decorate these boxes to add a personal, faith-filled touch.
We support the ministry of Communities Together, a collaboration of Protestant and Catholic churches in the area, through collections of diapers in Lent, a Lenten Service collection for a community Chaplaincy Program, hats and gloves for children at Christmas, “Birthday in a Box” which provides a monthly birthday party for children at the Manos Felices/Happy Hands after school program and by participating in and supporting their other projects, whatever they may be.
In the Spring we collect funds for the Heifer Project, then select the animals to be purchased and donate to a family in need in a developing nation. We also participate in One Great Hour of Sharing and Church World Service‘s collections for blankets or tools.
Our youth group goes on a mission trip every summer, doing a week of home repair for those who can’t afford it. They scrape and paint houses. They build and repair porches and handicapped ramps. They help repair homes and lives; and in doing so they make God’s love visible to those they serve.
These are only some of the ways we strive to make a difference in our world. We never rest on our laurels. Instead we strive to hear the voice of God calling us to new and exciting adventures in discipleship and service.
