Free Wheelchair Mission

The Free Wheelchair Mission is a humanitarian, faith-based, nonprofit organization that provides wheelchairs at no cost to people with disabilities living in developing nations. In collaboration with a network of like-minded partners, FWM has been providing wheelchairs to those in need around the world since 2001, providing dignity, independence and hope through the gift of mobility.

Through Trinity's continued relationship with the United Methodist Hospital in Ganta, Liberia, Free Wheelchair Mission shipped over 500 wheelchairs to the hospital in early 2017. Children attending Vacation Bible School in June 2016 started the ball rolling, raising enough money to provide 22 wheelchairs themselves!

Guatemala Milk Program

The Pura Vida Christmas Milk Program serves families in need in Guatemala. Donations are used to provide milk to the rural village of Lemoa. A 2.5-kg canister of premium dehydrated milk can be purchased and delivered for only $12. That makes five gallons of whole milk, which will provide months of vital nutrition to chronically malnourished children. Dairy milk is not commonly available in the area, due to the lack of refrigeration and poor health of the local cattle.

Pura Vida Ministries is an ecumenical Christian effort bringing together Guatemala and the United States, working to promote health and education in Santa Cruz del Quiche, Guatemala. Pura Vida gives time, knowledge and resources to help build up communities to their standards, not ours.

Trinity offers the Pura Vida Christmas Milk Program as an Alternative Gift choice during Advent. Learn more


Guatemala Scholarship Program

Children in Lemoa, Guatemala, attend an average of three years of school. Some of the best and brightest make it to sixth grade, where they usually discontinue their studies due to lack of funds. Each year Trinity volunteer Mark Ely works with the schools to identify children in the Lemoa sixth grade to receive scholarships for the next year at a school in nearby Santa Cruz.

Pura Vida Ministries is an ecumenical Christian effort bringing together Guatemala and the United States, working to promote health and education in Santa Cruz del Quiché, Guatemala. Pura Vida gives time, knowledge and resources to help build up communities to their standards, not ours.

Trinity members have the opportunity to sponsor one or more of these children. Classes and/or individuals are encouraged to participate. Education in this area of Guatemala is rare and is equally prized. So little to us, yet hope of a future to them. As an individual or Sunday School class, sponsor one or more children for $450 per year to cover the expenses of tuition, books and school uniforms. Learn more

United Methodist Committee on Relief

United Methodists have a long tradition of outreach to all. UMCOR traces its origin to the 1940 General Conference, where delegates were asked for an offering to assist Chinese refugees. UMCOR was set up to administer the funds. Relief efforts were soon needed by European refugees during and after World War II. The church met the challenge, later expanding its work to address urgent situations of human suffering in other parts of the world. Today, UMCOR's ministries—aiding refugees, providing relief in disaster areas and confronting the problem of world hunger and poverty—are helping heal the hurts of humanity in more than 100 countries. UMCOR's response to disaster may include distribution of donated items through its depots, provision of the UMCOR Catastrophic Team, consulting services, cash grants and use of heavy equipment loaned for the duration of the disaster.

Trinity supports UMCOR through congregational offerings and individual contributions. The annual offering assists those left hungry and homeless after disasters strike. Last year Trinity members contributed health kits, sewing kits and school kits for distribution at disaster sites around the world.

Youth Mission to Guatemala with Pura Vida

Next trip: Summer 2018

"Pura Vida" means "pure life," and that is just what high school Juniors and Seniors will discover as they spend a week in rural Guatemala in the village of Lemoa.

Trinity Youth will help build a house for a family in Lemoa, spend time at the John Wesley School, help in local school classrooms, visit a weaving project run by a pastor and his family, attend worship at the Methodist Church in Chichicastenango and much more. The most wonderful part of the experience is the relationships that are built. Time spent in Guatemala has a way of clearing your mind and getting priorities in order. You just might return home a changed person.
