2017 Pledging for Holy Trinity’s 2017 Ministry….
Thanks Be to God!
A wonderful Christmas gift you can give your church is to make a pledge, an indication of your financial commitment to Holy Trinity in 2017. Your pledge helps us make realistic and creative plans for ministry in the coming year.
The astonishing news is that 47 member/households have already made pledges totaling $201,374 ($171,624-general fund; $29,750-building fund). This is a 45% increase over last year.
If you have not pledged yet, please bring the one card sent to you in the mail or use a pledge card at the back of the nave and place it in the offering this Sunday.
Thank you for your remarkable generosity and commitment to Holy Trinity’s ministry.
Sunday at 5 p.m.
Lessons and Carols
This is a beautiful way to prepare for Christmas. Hear Bible readings, sing beautiful hymns, and hear stunning music. End the day, especially during this Advent season, watching and waiting in great anticipation to celebrate the birth of the Christ Child. Join the large crowd who savors this Holy Trinity tradition and invite your friends, giving them this perfect gift of Christmas.
