Opportunities to Contribute to Trinity’s Mission
Offering your time and talent
At Trinity, we strive to serve others, grow in faith, live in hope and reach out in love in every way possible. Click HERE for a copy of annual our “time and talent” sheet – a listing of the many ways that people in the congregation stay involved. Each year we ask members of the Trinity community to indicate which of these activities are of interest. And everyone is welcome to review the list at any time and contact the office if they are interested in participating in one or more of the activities!
Stewardship and Mission Appeals
Each year we also ask members of the Trinity community to consider making a pledge to our stewardship and mission appeals. This letter
from our Stewardship Committee describes our current theme of Joyful Generosity; this note is designed to help in personal planning. Please click HERE for our current pledge form if you would consider making a one-year commitment to either or both of these appeals.
Our stewardship appeal provides funding to cover the cost of routine operations. Our mission appeal, BIGGER than a Building!, provides the funds needed to pay off our mortgage and to expand our ministries. Less than a decade ago, our 50-year-old education facilities were in need of extensive repairs. In 2008, the congregation decided to renovate and expand the older parts of the building. With new wiring, plumbing, and insulation, as well as a new pitched roof, a new nursery adjacent to the sanctuary, additional restrooms, lounge and classroom space, new offices, and extra parking, our new facilities provide far better support for our mission.
Mission Endowment Fund
Christian stewardship involves the faithful management of all gifts God has given us, including financial resources. Trinity established a Mission Endowment Fund in 1996 as a way to support the mission outreach of the congregation. Each year, the Mission Endowment Committee distributes income from the Fund as grants that support community ministries, special benevolence projects, and special non-budgeted programs recommended by members of the congregation.
Trinity’s Governance Documents
To fulfill its mission of service and good stewardship, Trinity requires an appropriate governance framework. Here are links to the documents that establish this framework:
