Below you will find a brief description of some of the local Christian Ministries that benefit from Holy Trinity support.
Christ’s Home: Transforming the lives of seniors and children
Christ’s Home is one of the few organizations in the country to offer an array of life-enhancing services to both older adults and children.
The heart of Christ’s Home is to serve the Lord by providing services to senior adults and disadvantaged children in an atmosphere graced with love, dignity, compassion and respect.
We accept the authority of the Bible translated into action to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional and social needs of those we serve.
We strive to fulfill the command of Jesus, “love your neighbor as yourself,” as an integral part of our daily ministry
We are committed to quality programming and services that exceed community standards while providing exceptional value.
We acknowledge that the assets of Christ’s Home belong to God. We also acknowledge that God has blessed us individually with talents and abilities. Placed together, we acknowledge our responsibility to use them wisely for His Glory.
We will utilize our resources to provide for those who otherwise may not be served.

We have a presence in Kensington through Sarnelli House where we serve meals on a weekly basis, donate to and help maintain the clothing room where guests can obtain needed clothing and toiletries for free, tend the gardens seasonally, and hold special events that include pizza dinners with live music and treats from Mr. Softee truck visits. We also make peanut butter & jelly sandwiches to give to the homeless in the neighborhood.

We support the efforts of Freedom Steos, a local 501(c)3 organization that supports our men and women serving in the United States military. Launched over a decade ago by an Upper Moreland graduate who wanted to encourage our troops, Freedom Steps aims to send quarterly care packages to men and women who are predominantly serving overseas and have a connection to local friends and families. Approximately 20 care packages are sent each quarter for roughly $75 shipping per box. (Freedom Steps receives NO US postage discounts for their shipments.) Boxes sent to individuals include toiletries, socks, magazines, snacks and other such items in sufficient quantities to be shared with 10 fellow service persons. Donations and an annual 5K Run are the main sources of funding. Freedom Steps is deeply grateful for Holy Trinity’s ongoing support. A collection box remains in the narthex for contributions of supplies. Anyone may contribute at any time by writing a check to Holy Trinity and designating the gift for Freedom Steps.

Red Cross Blood Drives
Holy Trinity holds three blood drives annually for the Red Cross. These drives are purposely scheduled around three “holidays” — Valentine’s Day, July 4th and Thanksgiving — which the Red Cross has requested of us as these are typically low blood donation times. We serve dinner to our Red Cross workers, which they find extra special. More volunteers are always needed to help make calls for donations.

This group welcomes anyone who enjoys sewing, knitting, or crocheting items for those in need. They gather on Saturday mornings a number of times throughout the year to make blankets, scarves, drawstring and T-shirt bags or whatever else might be needed. Sarnelli House in Kensington is one of the recipients of these many projects.
