Multiplying JOY

In living our faith with JOY! - Journeys in Outreach & Youth - each dollar we give is multiplied by Trinity. It is our volunteerism (time) and in-kind support (talent) that enhance the impact and grace of our donations (treasure).

Our true impact exceeds all understanding and is based in faith AND in strategic planning. Parish feedback led the Outreach Task Force to develop a participatory model for supporting both long-time ministry partners as well as some new collaborators.  

Our partners - in general - meet the following thresholds:

  • Food, Shelter and Education ministries

  • Effective management and proven impact

  • Located close enough for hands-on, community building outcomes (e.g. direct volunteerism by all generations of parishioners - with an emphasis on integrating youth and family programming with outreach 

Thus, the question isn’t, “if I give to Trinity, what will be left for other worthy causes that build and serve the community?” The question is, “When I give to Trinity, how does this Christian community multiply the impact of my gifts?”

Cultivating JOY: Gaining Ground

With Food, Shelter and Education as our aims for Trinity’s Outreach ministries, one $3,000 gift is quite literally seeding the work of Gaining Ground, the Concord farm whose purpose is to give all its nutritious bounty to hunger relief.
