Grace-Trinity has supported many missionary ventures within the community and abroad. Grace Sunday school has also led the way for many outreach projects in recent years. Beginning in 2011, our children and congregation have enthusiastically collected resources every year to provide a meaningful Christmas gift to their less fortunate counterpart's across the world, ranging from Christmas shoe box gifts, water filters for pure water supply, collecting money to buy Christmas clothes to supplying backpacks for children.
Our children and their families also participate in the 'Global Aid Network', in packing food and seeds for economically challenged countries.
