Engagement

Ongoing Engagement Opportunities

Agape Center

The Agape Community Youth and Family Center was started by Trinity in 1997 and serves children and families who live in the Bolton Road community. Agape works to end the cycle of generational poverty through education-based after school programming. Agape children attend Bolton Academy, E. Rivers Elementary, Sutton Middle School, and North Atlanta High School. 

Make God’s Love Visible by Volunteering with Agape:

  • Be a Homework Buddy: Work with elementary or middle school children 1 hour per week and help them complete their homework and succeed in life.
  • Be a Reading Tutor: Participate in Cupp Reading Program training and work with elementary students 1 hour per week to help them master reading by third grade, when children learn to read rather than read to learn.
  • Provide and Serve Dinner: All Agape students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Without Agape, many of the children would not eat dinner. Volunteer to bring dinner to the students.
  • Assist with the Ragtime Seniors Program: Agape supports senior citizens who live in the Bolton Road community to help them stay connected and active. Volunteers provide lunches on Tuesdays and Thursdays, donate prizes for bingo, and help with arts and crafts.

Buckhead Christian Ministry

Trinity's Food and Toiletries Drive for BCM - April 2018

Buckhead Christian Ministry (BCM) is a faith-based, non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance to individuals and families of all backgrounds and faiths, treating everyone with dignity and compassion. Trinity Presbyterian Church is proud to sponsor a food and toiletry drive to benefit Buckhead Christian Ministry during the month of October. BCM provides compassionate emergency assistance to individuals and families facing hardship, and offers meaningful opportunities to serve the Atlanta community.

Trinity Church is asking every member, class, fellowship group, and Bible study group to help eliminate hunger in our community. Please encourage your class or group to donate food or raise money for BCM. Look for barrels around the church campus during October. Grocery bags with shopping lists are available.

Habitat for Humanity Build - Fall 2017

Every fall Trinity helps build a home for an Atlanta family. This year our partnership will be with the Moore family . Ms. Moore has been a mail carrier for almost four years.  She works long hours but, when she has free time, she enjoys swimming, arts & crafts. She also is very active with her children’s schools. Her son will be in the 4th grade, and he enjoys math and science. Her daughter enjoys singing, dancing, and anything pink. Ms. Moore’s family lives in Florida but her mother frequently visits. Ms. Moore is very motivated to have her own home because she believes that a new home will mean stability, freedom, and a better life for herself and her children. She is very excited about building her home.

Please join Habitat for Humanity, the NW Interfaith partnership and Trinity members by volunteering to help build her house. No expertise is required, just enthusiasm! The build begins October 14 and runs through December 9.

Our ALL TRINITY DAY is on October 21, and we need 40 volunteers! Breakfast and lunch are included. We need your help on October 21st, however, you can volunteer on several other dates. Please go through the sign up link provided to find out more about volunteering. Join the Trinity family in making Atlanta’s communities thrive!
