OUTREACH

Outreach is the collective name for Trinity’s activities living out Christ’s command to serve others in the immediate area and around the world. The Outreach Committee, under the leadership of Marion Nechuta, meets monthly to plan and execute the outreach activities. 

Sandwich Sunday for St. John's in Elizabeth

On the third Sunday each month Trinity parishioners prepare sandwiches, hardboiled eggs, fresh fruit, and cookie bags to support the St. John’s Episcopal Church feeding program. Parishioners donate the food supplies, prepare hundreds of sandwiches and other food items, and deliver and serve the food at St. John’s in Elizabeth. Everyone is invited to join us as we serve those in need. For more information, please contact Marion Nechuta 

Loaves of Love

January 28, 2018

“Loaves of Love” supports the Aids Resource Foundation’s St. Claire's Homes for Children in Newark, which provides comprehensive family-centered services to individuals, families, and children affected by HIV/AIDS and other social and health-related barriers. Twice a year we sell a variety of homemade breads made by Trinity parishioners at our Sunday coffee hour. Please contact Maureen and Darrell Frydlewicz if you can lend your baking skills to help our neighboring families in need.

Animal Project

January 01, 2018

The Episcopal Relief & Development “Animal Project” gives families and communities affected by chronic hungry and poverty worldwide. They provide healthy animals and agricultural coaching to help generate sustainable food and income. Trinity Cranford is collecting monies to provide two goats and a pig to a family in Zambia this year. Donations, made payable to “Episcopal Relief and Development”, can be mailed or brought to the church office or church on Sunday mornings.

Cameroon Orphans

April 29, 2018

Trinity hosts semi-annual fundraisers to benefit The Good Shepherd Home in Cameroon that cares for orphaned children.  The Good Shepherd Home is the brainchild of Sister Jane Mankaa who dedicates her life to nurturing the orphans of her country. It is located in the North West Province of Cameroon, an area with 50,000 orphaned children. Over 150 of them have found a home at Good Shepherd where they are sheltered, fed, clothed, educated and most of all, loved.  Sister Jane does not turn any child away and no child is put up for adoption.  The children truly live in a loving family environment with over 150 brothers and sisters. X years ago Trinity committed to sponsor two orphans, Daniella and Musuga. For more information about Trinity’s support, please contact Marion Nechuta

Clean Water

Water is essential for life. However in many places pollutants, climate change and disasters threaten the fresh water supply. Every 15 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease somewhere in the world. The Episcopal Relief & Development “Clean Water” program constructs wells, waters systems, and stations that both reduce the spread of disease and promote health, well-being, and economic viability for the entire community.  Every spring, Trinity Episcopal focuses on raising money and awareness on making a positive impact on the global clean water crisis.Clean Water

Findraiser for Foundation Cristosal

We will be having a bake sale fundraiser benefitting Foundation Cristosal, an independent, faith-based nonprofit organization that partners with the people of El Salvador in their struggle for peace, justice and reconciliation.  El Salvador suffered a brutal 12-year civil war and string of natural disasters which destroyed much of the country’s remaining infrastructure and housing. In 2016, El Salvador was second only to Syria in the per capita level of internal displacement by violence. We invite everyone to come and support Cristosal’s very important work. 

African Team Ministries

Trinity Cranford hosted a Charity Jewelry sale in November benefiting African Team Ministries. Africa Team Ministries is a life-saving Christian ministry providing funds for orphan and refugee relief missions and evangelism in in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda. The worst drought in 60 years has caused a severe food crisis in Kenya and left more than 3 million Kenyans facing malnutrition and starvation.  Our contribution will help send 250,000 meals to families in drought and famine areas and is providing pumps to help communities pump clean reliable water.

CROP Walk

Trinity Episcopal will be sponsoring walkers for the CROP Hunger Walk next fall. “Hunger is the greatest health risk in the world, killing more than AIDS, Malaria, and TB combined,” said Reverend Andy Kruger, Trinity’s Priest-in-Charge. Globally 795 million people don’t have enough to lead healthy, active lives. The donations to the Cranford CROP Hunger Walk will benefit the both global hunger fighting ministry of Church World Services and Cranford Family Care. “We invite everyone to support this important cause by becoming a walker or by donating to the CROP Hunger Walk, Father Andy continued

The Cranford CROP Hunger Walk will start at 1:45 PM at the Cranford United Methodist Church, 201 Lincoln Ave., Cranford (at the corner of Lincoln and Walnut Aves.).
