    sonograms, counseling, STD testing & treatment, adoption services, educational programs and much more. It is only with our help that the WCC can keep all of their life-saving services free of charge. Take an empty baby bottle home on Mother’s Day, fill it with change, cash, or checks (make checks out to “WOMEN’S CARE CENTER”), & return them by Father’s Day.

  • Holy Trinity’s Constitution... has stood firm, remaining unaltered since it was written. Because of our constantly changing culture, our church constitution is in honest need of updating to protect our ministries for the future. The Council will be putting together a committee to consider what changes need to be made in our constitution, to be presented to the congregation for adoption by voter’s assembly. Please contact the church office for more information on how you may volunteer to serve in this matter. 
     

  • Northwestern Food Pantry… thanks Holy Trinity for our donations of goods and money. In February we helped the Food Pantry provide for 203 families, representing 505 individuals, including 134 seniors,

  • 234 adults and 137 children. This included 12 new families this month, representing 20 new individuals. The pantry serves the boroughs of Albion, Cranesville and Platea and the townships of Conneaut, Elk Creek, and Springfield. They distribute over 12,000 pounds of product monthly, including 400 dozen fresh eggs, assorted produce, and over 410 rolls of bathroom tissue.  “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and He will repay him for his deed.” – Proverbs 19:17
