Trinity's neighborhood ministries are fueled by volunteers, resources and prayer from various congregations and individuals near and far.  We are extremely thankful for this kind of wider generosity. For instance over 22 different "crews" help prepare, serve and provide presence at our weekly Community Kitchen.

Because we believe that God is already working to enable justice and compassion to flourish on the northwest side of Grand Rapids and to further our vision that all life will experience God’s shalom and reconciling love, the body of Christ called Trinity Reformed Church embraces and utilizes the principles of Asset Based Community Development. This means that we strive to bring together the gifts and strengths of the people at Trinity with the gifts and strengths of our neighbors (residents, businesses, organizations).

We are always looking for additional partners to help grow our vision of sharing and embodying God's reconciling love.  For more information on partnerships or to receive our recent neighborhood ministry newsletter, please contact Glenn Swier ( or call our church office.
