In 2020, Trinity made a bold commitment to our future with Embracing JOY! (Journeys in Outreach & Youth): a 4-year, $2 million capital campaign to fund Outreach and Youth ministries in perpetuity.
In the most difficult year in recent memory, the parish has responded with $1.6 million in written commitments and of that, $800,000 is already funded! With 80% of goal committed in 4 months, we - all of us at Trinity - have responded generously to a vital question about our future,
"How deep is our commitment to Outreach and Youth at Trinity?"
During 2020, Trinity - in unprecedented outreach of $43,000 in direct aid to food, housing and education partners - delivered to the front lines! This is 5 times more than our Outreach of years past and proof of concept behind Journeys in Outreach & Youth (JOY!).
In living our faith through JOY, each dollar we give is not filtered through Trinity but multiplied by Trinity where our voluntarism (time) and our in-kind support (talent) enhance the impact and grace of each of our donations (treasure).
We look forward to bringing you the stories of JOY in 2021!
As ever, if and when you're inclined, we invite you to commit to the campaign and all of the other opportunities to derive and give JOY at Trinity.

Trinity has always been a place on a street in a town and a place in our hearts and minds. While our doors were temporarily closed, we opened forever new paths to live our faith and follow Christ.
Our Church - clergy, staff, lay leaders, parishioners, volunteers - has answered fear with faith to support all of us and our ministry partners on the front lines.
Even with significant loss of income due to the pandemic, the church has been on the move to search for and respond to God's call.
As you review all the ways that Trinity remains our sanctuary wherever we are, please increase your annual support more than ever before.
2021 at Trinity will be unlike any other year in our history. Please give as generously as you are able.
Trinity has committed to Embracing JOY! (Journeys in Outreach & Youth): a 4-year, $2 million capital campaign to fund in perpetuity Outreach and Youth ministries.
In a world that needs everything we can give, we are delighted to lead this effort and invite you to stretch toward a capital gift that truly challenges us to live our faith and follow Christ.
Embracing Joy! is how we answer the question, "What can we do?" when the crises in the world seem beyond our ability to help. Please dig deeper than you think you can and fund your commitment over 4 years!
