A special thank you
to those that have contributed to Trinity through a gift of stock. I appreciate it when these types of transactions are made before December. And November is a perfect month to catch up with your pledge! – Laurie Clements
Thank you note received from SACRA:
"You have done it again! Trinity was the number one church in financial gifts to SACRA for our fiscal year ending September 30th. You gave $13,419.57. That is incredible!... You are truly a Church with a heart for the poor. May God continue to use you to his glory in all your ministries." - SACRA
Women's Bible Study begins Wednesday, January 10 at 11:00 in the Foster Room.
We will discuss the book "40 Days of Decrease" by Alicia Chole. I suggest reading the first 7 days for discussion on Jan. 10. If you have questions, please contact Carrie Tucker at 540.230.0787 or firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
