Our Tuesday morning discussion group begins with a gentle Tai Chi Session. It's easy and so very relaxing. After Tai Chi, we spend about 45 minutes discussing really interesting topics, books and videos. Everyone in the group is free to contribute or suggest topics to be discussed. That is what makes it intersting and fun! Our topics have ranged from lost scriptures of the Bible to angels to near dealth experiences. Currently we are discussing dreams and what they mean in our lives. Come and join us in the Chapel at 10:30 am for a great Tuesday morning outing! Come once, occasionally, or every week. You are always welcome!
The Food Pantry at Good Samaritan Church could use a boost. The following items would be greatly appreciated.

Don't miss these 45 minute discussions led by Trinity members and friends. Come join the conversation! Currently, we are studying the Islam religion with Tom Fauquet.

Our ancestors in faith led the movement for abolition. They were a voice of reason at the dawn of Reconstruction, when America attempted to rebuild a nation buttressed by white power and privilege. They fought long and hard during the time of Jim Crow to gain new ground in the equality of all races. They fought to end red-lining districts that forced black families into ghettoes. And they walked arm in arm with our brothers and sisters of color during the Civil Rights movement. Let's not forget this rich history and let's continue to stand up and speak out for what is right. Please read the letter from our UCC Conference Ministers.
We have a calendar that shows "who is meeting where' each month. With four different ministries, it can get a bit confusing. Just go to the Calendar tab on the left hand side of the page and the drop down will say "Room Usage Calendar."

As part of our Mission 1 effort in the fall of 2011 we began collecting can goods and other non perishable items that can go to feed the hungry in our county. Our goal was to collect 111 items by the end of the month and we collected over 300. The items went to our sister church, Good Samaritan in Pinellas Park. "Good Sam" has had a food pantry for 45 years and serve approximately 2800 people a year. They are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 9:00 am to noon and accept monetary donations as well as goods.
Helping Good Sam in 2011 started a great tradition! We want to keep going with this worthwhile project so please keep bringing in those canned goods, peanut butter and paper products. Good Sam is very appreciative!!
The items can be placed by our worship table in the Chapel. For more information about the Good Samaritan Food Pantry, click here.
Family Promise provides temporary housing to Families with children who have lost their homes. They are a nonprofit, non-religious charity who primarily works with faith-based institutions to accomplish their goals.
Promise helps families without homes regain their independence. The
goal is to help provide the families with a secure, safe, temporary
environment while the parents work with case managers, counselors, and
service agencies to return the family to a stable home and a healthy,
sustainable lifestyle. Trinity UCC is proud to be part of the effort to
help the homeless in Pinellas County. For more info on the Family
Promise Program, click here.
We have established an on going ministry with a local nursing home, Jacaranda Manor. We visit these lovely folks at least 4 times a year for planned events such as sing-a-longs. We also have made care packages filled with toiletries and other goodies. So many times, people living in nursing home situations are forgotten. We have seen the joy in their eyes when we come to visit and encourage anyone in our community to reach out to a nursing home to volunteer. You won't be sorry you did! Jacaranda's caring activity director, Barbara, has made working with them so easy and fun. Many thanks to the wonderfully committed staff at Jacaranda and for the members of our congregation who attend these wonderful outings!
Upcoming 2017 Events at Jacaranda:
Tuesday, August 29 10:00 AM Sing-A- Long with Winston Culler
Tuesday, December 19 AM Sing-A- Long with Winston Culler
The address is 4250 66th St N, St. Petersburg, FL 33709.
