The Lazarus Project

This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it. (John 11:4)

Today, we find ourselves in a unique place in history. The world faces a pandemic that threatens our community, our nation, and our world.

Just as Christ’s healing touch breathed life back into His friend Lazarus and as a result, many came to faith (John 11), today God wants to breathe life into His people. He is not calling us to shrink back and simply survive. God has told us what to do: act justly, extend mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8)

To that end, Trinity Church has created The Lazarus Project, our COVID-19 Response Initiative. The Lazarus Project will provide financial support, acts of service, emotional support, family support, and additional resources as together we respond to our needs in our community that arise in the wake of the current public health crisis.


The Community Support Network

Our Community Support Network comes alongside you and those you know during the COVID-19 crisis to offer financial, practical, and compassionate help. Our vetted volunteers provide virtual tutoring for students, parenting support, resources for families, and support for those in the community who are shut in, elderly, or high-risk. Emotional Support is offered in the form of a Community Group led by a qualified volunteer, established for the purpose of addressing anxiety, fear and overwhelm and/or professional counseling in conjunction with HopeWell Equipping & Counseling Center, supported financially if needed.

The Benevolence Project, one arm of The Community Support Network, comes alongside our church and our community by offering financial assistance to those who are hardest hit by the economic shut down.
