“For this is what the Lord has commanded us; “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 13:47)

Throughout our history, Trinity’s story has been one of impact here in Richmond and around the world. In a world of great hurt and need that story not only continues but indeed we must be extending our reach. The command of God to be “a light for the Gentiles and to bring salvation to the ends of the earth” has never been more urgent and pressing. The mission will take great faith and a faithful commitment of resources.

Extending Our Reach is the theme of our 2017 Stewardship Campaign. Extending our Reach kicks off on Sunday, January 29. It will culminate with Promise Sunday on February 19. During worship services on this day, members will be asked to submit their promises for financial support for the coming fiscal year. The stewardship committee will also sponsor breakfasts in Trinity Hall on Sunday, February 12 at both 9:30 and 11 AM. These breakfasts will give an overview of the church’s budget and ministries, and also provide an opportunity for members to ask questions. Please join us for these important events! Thank you for your support of Trinity.

Make Your Promise

Giving is a spiritual act. Through our financial support of the ministries of the church we put our faith into practice. Not only is this vital to underwrite and make possible the many ministries of the church, but for each of us it is a spiritual exercise. When we give we prioritize, we make decisions, and in a very tangible way we determine God’s place and importance of our lives.

The Biblical guideline is the tithe, or first fruits. It means that we dedicate to God the first 10% of our income. (Malachi 3:8-10).
