Bread basket ministry
Holy Trinity members are active in supporting the North Liberty Bread Basket. Sharing the ministry with the North Liberty Baptist Church, individuals pick up surplus bakery items from the Crosspark HyVee. Goods from are distributed to schools, senior housing centers, trailer parks, and other places where they can be routed to individuals in need. Bryce Henson is coordinating much of this in the near term and working collaboratively with Table to Table, where others volunteer, as we can learn from their experience and be good ministry partners to our community agencies. If you’d like to participate, e-mail Bryce Henson.
Holy Trinity hosts a blood drive annually through the Mississippi Valley Blood Center. This event is typically held in quarterly.
