Giving to Trinity
We give back to God out of the abundance of gifts that we receive from God. We offer
our time in ministry and leadership, and our talents and passions for the things we love and do well we offer to further the mission of the church. We pledge our money to support the ministries of Trinity through annual pledges of support as well as bequests
at the end of our lives. Giving back to God is a spiritual practice that draws us into deeper understanding of God’s endless love for us.

2024 PLEDGE CAMPAIGN
I am so pleased to talk about the theme of our annual stewardship campaign, Rooted in Abundance. I am particularly excited about this theme because it describes the graceful state of our Trinity community, and how we share our gifts so lovingly with each other.
Our giving tradition at Trinity has always been focused on how we share all of our gifts – not just our financial gifts. A church needs new ideas, creative people to lead, individuals who know how to solve complex problems, volunteers to keep our ministries focused on our neighbors. We usually talk about this in a three-fold way: wealth (treasure), works (time), and wisdom (talent). If any one of these areas is missing from our community, we are diminished.
Each of us has a gift; some have many. For some it is welcoming, others have beautiful singing voices, yet others count the collection or organize ministries and events. Others offer bake and BBQ, serve at the altar, or lead on the Vestry. Whatever your ministries are, we couldn’t be who we are without you.
In her recent letter to us, our rector Sabeth talked about how trees are connected via their root structures, and how they share information and resources with each other through those underground networks. In this year of being in leadership ministry with you, I have witnessed the ways in which you communicate with each other to get things done. Potlucks, community events, care for one another, it all happens so wonderfully because you are each deeply connected to each other through your roots of faith and service.
I thank you for all the ways you have shared your gifts with us this year – your wealth (treasure), your works (time), and your wisdom (talent). In the coming days you will be receiving more information about this year’s campaign and an invitation to let us know what gifts you would like to share with us for next year’s ministry. Thank you, once again, for your generosity.
