Outreach at TrinityFind A Way To Engage That Fits

Each summer since 2012, members of Trinity’s High School Youth Group, along with adult volunteers, travel to the Leech Lake reservation to work on building projects such as re-roofing houses, cleaning and painting walls and applying house siding. In addition, the project includes a Vacation Bible School for the children of Cass Lake. This mission trip is in partnership with the Church of the Epiphany, Plymouth and St. David’s Episcopal Church, Minnetonka, and is the only church mission project with which the White Earth Nation officially affiliates. The work benefits White Earth members who do not live on the White Earth reservation and whose needs cannot be served by the tribe.   

Each year for the past three years, Trinity has raised $10,000 for building supplies and also for equipment to facilitate the Vacation Bible School. Trinity has intentionally paired its work with the White Earth Nation with anti-racism training, cultural education, and theological reflection. We believe God calls us not only to action, but also to growth and learning, and self-knowledge in relation to indigenous peoples. The White Earth Mission Project is a ministry of the entire congregation, with the senior high youth leading the way.
