The Bulb Collection

The Food Insecurity Team is excited to partner with The Bulb, which provides (mostly) local produce and health and wellness education to food insecure neighborhoods through weekly markets. We are installing a permanent collection bin in the Parish Life Building lobby to collect empty, clean one-dozen egg containers and plastic or reusable shopping bags. These items are used regularly at the weekly markets and are a great help to our neighbors transporting fresh food home.

Trinity's Table

In partnership with South Tryon Community UMC, our Equity and Empowerment team invites you to help greet and serve neighbors at Trinity’s Table, a feeding and fellowship ministry at South Tryon Community UMC at 2516 S. Tryon Street. This long-standing ministry is transitioning back to in-person dining after COVID, and your presence matters! Email with questions.
