Community Outreach 

Trinity United Church of Christ gives generously to programs in our community that serve others. Below are our current partners whom we support through our time, talent and funding.  

Lenten Food Challenge 2023

Since 2011, Trinity has been partnering with Good Samaritan Food Pantry. Once again Trinity UCC congregants have taken on the Lenten Challenge - to donate 40 items (one for each day of Lent)  per family to the Good Samaritan Food panty.

Here is a photo of the goods we collected this year to be delivered to Good Sam!

Good Samaritan Food Pantry 

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 serves 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 have kept it going by continually donating to this very 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. 

Balanced Healthcare Nursing Home

We have established an on going ministry with local nursing home, Balanced Healthcare (formerly Jacaranda Manor).  We send greeting cards every quarter to the residents.   We  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 will be happy you did! Jacaranda's caring activity director, Barbara, has made working with the nursing home so easy and fun. Many thanks to the wonderfully committed staff at Balanced Healthcare and for the members of our congregation who contribute items and cards!

The address is 4250 66th St N, St. Petersburg, FL 33709.

Apollo Nursing Home

Trinity also has a greeting card ministry with Apollo Nursing Home. We enjoy playing  bingo with the residents on a couple of Fridays each month. Last December our congregation adopted several Apollo residents and gave them Christmas gifts.  

Celebrate Outreach

Trinity is very concerned about food insecure individuals and families who live in Pinellas County. A good portion of our outreach budget goes to supplying food for the community. One such organization is Celebrate Outreach, a partnership of St. Petersburg-area faith-based congregations and individuals which is dedicated to preventing and ending homelessness in our area.

Missio Dei 

Trinity also donates funds to Missio Dei, a faith based organization that serves food to the homeless twice a week at 900 Dr. MLK Jr. Street S. in St. Petersburg.  As their website says, "There is a church that cares about community more than dogma, about an open mind more than uniformity, about being more than believing, about doing the right thing more than just talking about it. An imperfect church of imperfect people inviting other imperfect people to find the perfect love. This church is for dreamers, skeptics, cynics, and seekers."  That sort of says it all and we are  proud to partner with Missio Dei. 

Metro Inclusive Health 

We are proud to regularly donate to Metro Inclusive Health. Metro offers free individual and group counseling to LGBTQ+ youth under 21 years old, in need of support and/or guidance on a range of youth related issues. Free counseling is available for youth ages 13-20 who are being bullied, harassed, or dealing with thoughts of suicide. Contact  for more information.
