Many of the churches throughout Mercer County minister to those who are hungry through the Churches of Mercer County Food Pantry located at 1200 S. College Ave in Aledo. Trinity is one of the active supporting churches. Usually two or three weeks each month, we have the opportunity to volunteer with this mercy ministry, in addition to our financial support and food donations. Volunteering consists of stacking and sorting food items, filling boxes, carrying food to vehicles, and conversing with clients. This also offers amples opportunity to share the love and gospel of Jesus Christ.
Normally, once per month, on the fourth Thursday of the month, a truck shipment arrives with federal government commodities and food items purchased from River Bend Food Pantry in the Quad Cities. Several of Trinity's members and friends regularly volunteer to help unload the truck.
We collect food pantry donations from the congregation on the third Sunday of each month. The collection box is placed inside the front doors of the church.
