2019 Pledge Cards are Due
If you have not already done so, please turn in your pledge card for 2019 giving. Having an advance idea of our members’ intentions helps the Planning Council to prepare a more accurate budget for the year ahead. You may place your card in an offering plate, or give it to Karen in the office. Thank you for your ongoing faithfulness and commitment to Trinity!
Remember: December 31 is the last day to make a donation to Trinity for the current tax year. Please check to see that you are up-to-date on your giving for 2018. Thanks!
Thanks to all who donated for the annual East Madison Community Center (EMCC) Christmas basket food drive! The Lay Ministry team will use the money collected to purchase the food items on our list and deliver them to EMCC.
We appreciate your ongoing support of this program!
