International and Domestic Missions

God’s work. Our hands.

At Trinity, we believe in Christ’s call to love and serve our neighbors: in the Lancaster area, across the U.S., and around the world.  Our missions are designed around “accompaniment” – the concept of walking beside another in need, and seeing Christ in that moment.

In addition to the various local outreach and missions Trinity offers within our local communities, we offer the opportunity for our members and friends to serve those experiencing need in distant locations.  Annual mission trips are planned to the following locations on a rotating three-year schedule:

  • Trinity partners with the ELCA Lower Susquehanna Synod Haiti Mission Team.  The team travels to the Institution Univers, Ouanaminthe, Haiti to teach a summer school program to the local children.  Our next trip will be in the summer of 2019.
  • Trinity partners with Tree 4 Hope in serving communities in Guatemala.  Our next trip will be in the summer of 2020.
  • Trinity organizes a team to serve in an area in the U.S. that is experiencing need; sometimes the need is on-going, sometimes it is related to a recent natural disaster.  The next domestic mission trip will be in 2018.

Trinity is also a committed “prayer partner” with the congregation of Amazing Grace Lutheran Church in Baltmore, MD.  Events are planned for congregation interaction during the year, and we support each other as needed when situations arise.
