The Verla Moore Service Club was organized more than 50 years ago by a group of young women at Central Trinity U.M. Church who wanted to serve the Lord in a special way. Most of them had a longstanding relationship with the late Verla Moore, a woman of deep faith who had been their Sunday School teacher, youth counselor and mentor and had impacted their lives over many years. She continued to be the service club advisor for as long as her health permitted. Several of the Charter Members are still active in the organization today.
Some of their projects include delivering gifts to shut-ins at Easter and Thanksgiving; sponsoring a church-wide collection for Samaritan Purse Christmas boxes; collection for Salvation Army; and making subs for Superbowl Sunday as a fund raiser.
In addition, they collect and distribute items to various organizations each month, including Eastside Ministry, Lifewell Ministries, Transitions and others. They also serve refreshments and meals for special events at Central Trinity, such as the Messiah Concert, Thursday Music Club and after the Lenten Service.
The VMSC Vision Statement is: To bring people to Jesus and membership in His family by: Developing greater Biblical knowledge; Equipping persons for life decisions as Christians; Instilling a lifelong passion for service to God, the church and others.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m., usually at the church, and anyone interested is encouraged and welcome to visit and/or become members at any time.
