PCUSA's Christmas Joy Offering: By giving to the Christmas Joy Offering, you honor God's gift of Jesus Christ by providing assistance to current and retired church workers in their time of need and developing our future leaders at Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color. To give to the Christmas Joy offering, please make your check out to Trinity and note 'Christmas Joy' in the memo line.
Staff Gift Offering: As we enter this Christmas season, our world seems out of sorts in many ways. Yet we still have the incredible opportunity to spend time in worship, prayer and study although their form may be somewhat different this year. Our amazing staff continues to keep our church moving forward through new and innovative ways of serving God and others. As we have in previous years, we will be collecting funds for a staff gift as a way to say “thank you” for all that they do for Trinity. Please note “staff gift” on your check to ensure it gets to the right place. I wish you and yours a blessed Christmas season! ~ Cheryl Anderson, Stewardship Team elder
