For six years the Missions Committee has sponsored an annual Mini Grant Program to fund a limited number of social service/ministries projects/programs. The goals of the program include: seeking God’s will in the use of our common resources as we strive to care for our neighbors; identifying and supporting those social services/ ministries that already have Trinity member support and involvement; and discovering new opportunities for member involvement.

A special Evaluation Committee meets to review the applications and recommend proposals which best meet the goals of the program. The Missions Committee appreciates the participation of the Trinity congregation in developing a diverse range of proposals.
