ELECTRONIC  FUNDS  TRANSFER

As Trinity United Methodist Church prepares for a new year, it is  important to know what support we can depend upon from our congregation members.  By knowing what you are willing to commit financially,  we are able to better plan for the future.  Please consider setting up a recurring plan.  Automating your financial committments means your contributions will be received on a steady, uninterrupted basis.

You can use Electronic Funds Transfer to arrange consistent amounts to be drawn directly from your banking account.  This option allows you to give as a regular priority, and it also reduces the processing expense for the Church.

GROWING   THROUGH   STEWARDSHIP

As part of our membership at Trinity,we commit to giving our time, talents, and gifts.  In the past year, we took a look at the ground level of our building and worked together to update our heating system and revitalizing the former pool area into usable future space.  This commitment supports all the other work we do and lays a foundation for increased growth as we move forward together.  An overview of our giving at Trinity.

Every piece of our giving works together to support Trinity’s ministry.  The infographic inside shows the flow of finances within our congregation and how all of our giving fits together.  The operating budget is the piece that funds the important work done here each day.  Where do my gifts go?

Trinity is blessed with various income sources and committed leaders who act as stewards of our financial gifts.  Each year, we are asked to support ministries, programs, and goals through our donations and pledges.  All of these areas maintain a strong foundation for the continued health of our congregation as we work to meet our mission.  This includes creating a safe, comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing haven in which Trinity’s congregation and the greater Springfield community can grow in faith, celebrate, teach, learn, and play.  We also support and look to expand Trinity’s outreach to bring additional hope, dignity, and peace to those in the local community and beyond.

Each of us has different abilities and resources as we work together to do God’s will.  We sing, speak, cook, and teach.  We give time during the day, in the evening, and on weekends.  We make calls from our homes and stand in witness as we support activities at Trinity, each according to our God-given gifts.  When considering our giving, we also do so according to our ability and in response to the blessings in our lives.  Every pledge is important regardless of the amount.  Please prayerfully consider why you are making this commitment from level ground and how you can continue to grow in your giving so that we can grow together.

Thank you in advance for your commitment!
