Family Promise 


Family Promise Hosting at Trinity 2019

We are fed at the table of Communion where Jesus Christ comes with forgiveness, life and salvation. God sends us out to share the good news and to care for those in need.

Trinity Cares and Helps:

Family Promise of North Idaho Lutheran Church of the Master joins with Trinity to host families in Family Promise several times during the year. Many volunteers are needed to support this effort. There are a variety of ways to get involved: Help with set-up and pack up; meal preparation; overnight or evening host; purchase supplies; shop for supplies, do laundry. There are so many wonderful ways to make this program a success.

Food Bank Throughout the year, Trinity holds several food drives and collects non-perishable food items in the “Caring and Sharing” box in the Atrium. Food is distributed locally by Christ the King Lutheran Church.

We Personally Care This is a drive to collect personal care items that are donated to the community food bank.

Ecumenical Food Kitchen Every two months a team of Trinity members prepares and serves a nutritious meal for many disadvantaged people from the community. Many of these people are unemployed or disabled and might not otherwise have a hot meal. Meals are served at First Presbyterian Church.

Food Baskets Holiday food baskets are provided for families in need at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have also 'adopted' Bryan Elementary - our neighborhood school - and routinely provide Food Baskets on holidays for 4 to 5 families in need.

Holidays and Heroes Children come through this annual event with a local EMT hero. Each child selects a toy and clothing and then receives a beautiful handmade quilt from TLCW-Trinity Lutheran Church Women.

Lutherhaven Scholarships Every child should be able to go to camp!

That’s what the Trinity Lutheran Women believe. Each year they provide scholarships for kids in need.

Quilts on Tuesdays – The TLC Love Ladies donated 130 quilts to Holidays & Heroes program in December 2020. Though only gathering one day a week to quilt throughout the year, these amazing ladies created over 200 quilts given away or sold! Quilts were given to TLC graduates, children and adults being baptized at TLC, St Vincent de Paul warming centers, the Union Gospel Mission for Women & Children, Trinity Group Homes, Kootenai County Search & Rescue, local youth who were aging out of the Foster Care system. Fabulous fabrics and/or funds to buy materials are always welcome!
