A UNITED METHODIST CONGREGATION
Trinity is part of a multi-church consortium providing community ministry to residents in the Lark Street - Center Square area.
For over thirty years, FOCUS has evolved to provide outreach and community services to the Center Square neighborhood of Albany.
"Interpreting our common ministry" involves volunteers in the basic issues of food and shelter for individuals and families in crisis.
The Breakfast Program at Westminster brings community and homeless people together during Fall and Winter months.
The Focus Interfaith Food Pantry was housed for more than two decades at Trinity and is now housed at Emmanuel Baptist Church. It enjoys the additional support of United Fourth Presbyterian, Temple Beth Emeth, First Unitarian and St. Andrew's Episcopal.
FOCUS "spin-offs" include the Eighth Step Coffee House, CROP Walk, and Albany Area Housing Opportunities.
Close to the "halls of power" and surrounded by human need, FOCUS serves as an advocate for the poor and homeless, blending common sense with compassion, recognizing spiritual and physical needs.
To lead we must first serve. Call the FOCUS office (at Emmanuel Baptist Church) - 465-8781 or visit www.focuschurches.net to learn more about our mission and opportunities for service.
