As you turn in your pledge form this year, be reminded there are many ways to give your contributions. The easiest is to allow Trinity to deduct your contribution monthly from your banking institution. This does not cost you anything, and we do this on the 18th or 25th of the month, whichever date you prefer. Online through Realm or text giving is a very easy option for you. You do not pay any extra fees, as Trinity is happy to pay the fee of .35 per transaction plus the extra 3% of the value of your gift the bank charges us to do that online transaction. See Laurie in the office if you would be interested in getting more information. Offering envelopes (for those that have chosen to "pledge") will be available in the Church to pick up on December 3.

Giving Tree: The giving tree will be at the back of the church decorated with gift tags listing gift items requested for persons residing at Ritenour Rest Home beginning on December 3. When you take a gift tag please sign it out on the form posted next to the tree. All gifts should be wrapped and dropped off in the church office copy room or under the tree by Sunday, Dec. 17. Please securely attach the tag to the gift.
