Missions

Doing whatever it takes, with whatever we have, wherever God calls.
Missions isn’t a “group” of set people who are the ones only allowed to serve. It involves women, men, youth, and families in the church coming together to take Jesus out into the world, beyond the walls of the campus. There are many opportunities and ways in which you can serve. Some events are ongoing, others are yearly or emergency based. Read below to find out more about the missions ministry and the areas you can be a part of here at Trinity!
 

Regular Campus Activities

Open Every Tuesday from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Coordinator: Lisa Looney 
 
Our Mission
The love of Christ compels us, and commands us to share our faith, to be the hands and feet of Christ, in order to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those whom He places in our path.
 
Each week we partner with Manna Food Bank in an effort to provide food and other necessities to those in need throughout our community. If you are in need; are interested in serving or donating; or would like more info about the Trinity of Fairview Food Pantry, please call the church office at 828-628-1188.

It doesn’t take a faraway trip to show the care we are called to. In our community is a wealth of people we love and love to serve.

  • Saturday Serve: Our once-a-month church-wide workday. This is a time when we complete tasks around the church or in our community.
Regional missions can encompass a variety of activities. From backyard Bible clubs to building projects and more, the common goal with all regional missions is to share the love of Christ through all that we do with our neighbors.

  • Nicaragua
  • Honduras
  • Haiti 
These lists are not exhaustive. There are many ways to get involved!
 
How can I help? We are always happy to add new people to our various ministry teams. Likewise, we appreciate all donations, which help us continue to serve! Ministries you can be a part of include but are not limited to:
  • Clothes Closet Currently collecting jackets and hoodies for children for the cooler weather (see above). Bring items to the mission center lobby during service hours on Sundays and Wednesdays.

  • Firewood Ministry Open to all church attendees, this group cuts, splits, stacks, and delivers firewood for those in need in our community during the fall and winter months.
  • Missions Trips (Pray and ask God where he would have you serve; whether on the mission field or through financial support.)
  • Most importantly, pray for God’s blessing, guidance, and protection on those serving.
