The Trinity Tree stands tall in the Narthex as you enter the Sanctuary Building. It serves as a donation point for our ongoing collections. Each month the Outreach Committee will highlight a ministry and invite you to engage by bringing items to donate.

Undie Sunday!

Not to pry, but what’s something you never leave home without? There are many in our community who lack some of the basic undergarments we often find to be every day necessities. So we’re hosting an Undie Sunday on February 26th. We are collecting NEW, still-in-the-package underwear, socks, undershirts and bras for men, women, and children of all sizes. We will continue to accept these necessities but encourage everyone to bring some undies on Sunday, February 26th. You may also shop online via our Amazon wish list.

Decorate The Trinity Tree with Warm Winter Wishes

The Trinity Tree will remain in the Narthex for another month!  This January you are invited to decorate the Trinity Tree with all sizes of gloves, hats, undergarments, scarves, socks & ‘Hot Hands’ Warmers.  You may pick up these items at any of your favorite retail locations or you can shop via our Amazon wish list.  We want to warm up Gastonia so let’s purchase the warmest, most durable items possible!

Join the BE Campaign!

Wear your Be Campaign shirts when you’re out and about!
Pick up a yard sign in the Narthex, a magnet for your vehicle, or a sticker for your water bottle/notebook/etc. and spread the news that you are committed to Being Just, Kind and Humble.

Loray Girls’ Home Pounding List

The Outreach Committee is hosting a Pounding for the Loray Girls Home, a local residential facility for young girls/women in their late teens and living in the foster care system.

If you have never heard of a Pounding, here’s an explanation: The idea of a Pounding dates back to the age of the original Quakers. The custom was established to welcome a new community leader and family into a community. The idea was to give the family a pound of pantry staples…corn, wheat, sugar, butter, etc. It was a sign of hospitality and welcome.

Now, we don’t live in a time of cellars and dry storage. We are more of a coffee and chocolate kind of culture. Help us meet some of the basics of communal living by bringing “pounds” of pantry staples or gift cards to help them stock up the kitchen and feed the many mouths that gather around the table.
Household items: Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Laundry Detergent Pods, Dish washing Pods, Dryer Sheets, Tall Kitchen trash bags, Lysol All Purpose Spray Cleaner, Windex, Air fresheners
Personal Items: Shampoo and Conditioner, Body wash, Super Tampax Tampons, Always Thin Pads
