2024 Annual Pledge
Every year during "stewardship" season, we invite the people of Trinity Church to make a financial commitment - a "pledge" - for the upcoming year.
A "steward" is one who manages resources that are not one's own. As Christian stewards, we recognize that all we are and all we have is a gift from God, and we seek to honor that gift and its Giver by returning a generous measure of that which has been entrusted to us in furtherance of God's work.
Our pledge is a promise - to each other as "companions in the household of God" (Ephesians 2:19) and to our Creator - that we will make a priority of our relationship with God, both individually and collectively as a Beloved Community.
Our pledge partners us with God in the reconciling, saving work of the Church.
Our pledge grafts us into a holy undertaking far greater than what any one of us could accomplish alone.
Our faithful pledge, whether $20 or $20,000, confirms our equal share in every ministry of this remarkable congregation.
Pledges may be made at any time, and are most joyfully received during stewardship season (for 2024, between October 15 and November 19, 2023) and in advance of the parish budget process taking place each January. Paper pledge cards have been mailed to every Trinity household as of mid-October, and they are also available at the church. Pledges may also be made online using the form below.
If you are using the online options, please know that online pledges and payments are encrypted and securely processed through Blackbaud, Trinity's supplier of financial management software.
In using the form below, when you get to the field for entering your pledge amount, please input the * annual * amount. If you choose to set up a recurring payment as part of your pledge process (just one of many different ways of fulfilling your pledge), you'll then be asked to select the frequency of your payment (monthly, quarterly, etc.) and the number of payments for the upcoming one year period. An example may be helpful: an annual pledge of $2,400 might be paid quarterly in 4 increments of $600 each, or monthly in 12 increments of $200 each.
If you prefer to fulfill your pledge by a different method or at a different time, simply click the button at the end of the form that indicates you will make arrangements before the end of 2024. Reminders and balance statements will be sent periodically during the upcoming year.
Please contact the Director of Stewardship with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your generous contributions to the life of Trinity Church in time, talent, and treasure. In thanksgiving to God, let us "ascribe to the Lord the honor due his Name; bring offerings and come into his courts" (Psalm 96:8).
