THE RABE FAMILY SERVING AS MISSIONARIES IN ETHIOPIA
Mark teaches at Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The seminary is dedicated to training faithful Lutheran pastors and other church workers to serve in Ethiopia.
Mark and Stefanie have four beautiful children – Gabriella, Julianna, Matthias, and Noah – who join them on the mission field.
Ministry Center Food Pantry
Our Food Pantry ministry bears witness to God’s love by providing food to families and individuals in need. There is no requirement of religious involvement to receive food, however, food pantry volunteers are available to pray with those served, many of whom are in the midst of crisis.
Donations of dry goods and nonperishable foods are always needed. Items may be placed in the shopping cart in the Fellowship Hall. Volunteers are also needed to pick up food for the pantry. This would require pulling a trailer (provided by the church).
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…” Matthew 25:35
Kairos Prison Ministry
Pastor Dave and several members of Holy Trinity, both men and women, serve as volunteers, sharing the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ with incarcerated men and women in the Sumpter Correctional Institution, Bushnell, Fl. and the Hernando Women Correctional Institution, Brooksville, Fl.
We regularly send care packages to the men and women serving in our Armed Forces overseas.
The Holy Trinity Bike Ministry is run by Marlene & Cecil. They provide bikes to people who have seen the bike notice in the Holy Trinity Food Pantry Ministry. Marlene and Cecil have given away as many as 74 bikes in one year to people who need bikes for transportation. The Holy Trinity Bike Ministry works with the Grace Presbyterian Church, Spring Hill, FL. Since 1998 they have been repairing donated bicycles to provide them to needy children and adults. In 2016, the Bike Ministry distributed 164 bicycles to help folks to get to work, go shopping, and as birthday and Christmas presents. Most of the bikes are distributed through People Helping People, a multidenominational organization serving homeless people.

English as a Second Language
Another semester of English classes is underway at Holy Trinity for anyone who speaks Spanish and would like to learn English. The classes are free. You are welcome to join us any Saturday. Classes begin at 11:00 am. We try to plan lessons that will match each student’s needs and abilities and that will include pertinent information to help with daily living. We plan to have fun too!
During the summer we take a break from our regular curriculum and have informal classes. In the past this included trips to the library, July 4th fireworks, pool parties, computer and typing practice as well as English lessons. We also did crafts and learned how to play paddleball and badminton.
For more information and to confirm times and dates please call Elsa Wolter at (352) 799-9943.
