December Outreach of the Month: Looking Back at 2022

posted in: Outreach Focus 0


Around this time last year, I was working on developing the format for something I hoped to launch in 2022, Trinity’s Outreach of the Month highlight. Together with Pastor Wing, Ruth, Margaret, and others, we brainstormed names, ways to share information with the congregation, and what organizations to highlight. Now, looking back at the Outreach of the Month over the past 11 months, I am so thankful for all the ways God provided, and how Trinity has responded to this new venture.

Since January 2022, Trinity has learned about, prayed for, collected donations for, and donated to eleven different ministries serving our community here in Lincoln. The organizations we supported were:

  • January: Forward
  • February: Atlas
  • March: I’ve Got a Name
  • April: Priscilla Comfort Dog Ministry
  • May: Trinity Lutheran School ECE
  • June: Fresh Start
  • July: We Can Do This
  • August: City Impact
  • September: Trinity Lutheran School
  • October: Common Threads
  • November: Por Nosotros (ESL classes)

Altogether we donated over $9,000 to these organizations and the work they do in our community. We attended or served at eight different events, and donated hundreds of items to groups like Forward, Fresh Start, and We Can Do This.

None of this would have been possible without your enthusiasm, suggestions, and support! Thank you for trying something new and being open to learning about the amazing ways God is working through other people and organizations right around us in Lincoln. I’m excited to share more organizations with you in 2023 and continuing uplifting and supporting those from this year! If there is an organization you support or know about and think would be a good option for an Outreach of the Month, please let me know! Thank you for learning, praying, giving, and serving this year!
-Bethany Mrosko, Director of Christian Outreach
