Continuing to support Trinity in this time of social distancing
Though we are not able to gather as a congregation, the impor
tant work of Trinity continues. Since we are not gathering for worship in-person (for the time being), we are missing the opportunity to share our gifts to support our church. Yet the costs of operating the church and supporting our mission continue. We hope that members will continue their planned giving as they are able.
Gifts in the form of paper checks can be mailed directly to the church. As a reminder, our address is:
Trinity United Church of Christ
760 North Avenue
Deerfield, IL 60015
Alternatively, members who use electronic banking services from their banks may want to consider using those services for gifts to Trinity. The same information shown above can be used to set up Trinity as a "Payee" in those banking services. Some banks require that an "Account ID" be provided when establishing a Payee. If that's the case, either an envelope number or member's last name will generally serve that purpose. Regardless of whether a payment comes with an Account ID or not, we will credit the contribution based on the name of the account holder.
The features of electronic banking vary somewhat across institution. Some services allow customers to schedule regular payments, avoiding the need to make an entry into the system for each contribution. Scheduled payments can generally be changed or halted at any time.
Gifts are gratefully appreciated for both regular contributions and special offerings like the current One Great Hour of Sharing campaign. A gift can be directed to that offering by returning it with the OGHS envelope mailed with the bulletin last week or by simply noting "OGHS" on the memo line of your check or the memo section of your electronic payment.
Thanks in advance for your continued financial support of Trinity. Your gifts will help us carry on.
