Holy Trinity supports organizations in a number of ways. Firstly, Holy Trinity recognizes that it is through the Grace of God that we succeed in any endeavor we chose to undertake. Thus, prayer is at the forefront of our efforts, lifting up all those ministries with which we choose to partner. Secondly, Holy Trinity partners with organizations such as Interfaith Food Pantry in providing volunteers, food and gift cards to those who have fallen upon hard times in their lives and need a helping hand. Finally, Holy Trinity supports organizations through financial contributions, both directly and through the national church.
Below you will find a brief description of some of the Lutheran organizations that benefit from Holy Trinity support.

Lutheran Disaster Response
When disaster strikes in your community, the local Lutherans are the first form of Lutheran Disaster Response. Every time Lutherans act in service to their neighbors in need following a disaster, they are being Lutheran Disaster Response.

Lutherans for Life
Lutherans For Life believes that the Church is compelled by God’s Word to speak and act on behalf of those who are vulnerable and defenseless. The crisis of our times is the repudiation of Biblical truth manifested in the wanton destruction of innocent human life through legalized abortion-on-demand and the growing threat to the lives of others through legalized assisted suicide and euthanasia. Therefore, as Lutherans For Life, we will strive to give witness, from a Biblical perspective, to the Church and society on these and other related issues such as chastity, post abortion healing, and family living.
