“Not only with our lips, but in our lives...”
This phrase is prayed by Anglicans around the world at the end of Morning and Evening Prayer. We ask God to
“...give us such an awareness of your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips but in our lives....”
Our fall pledge campaign is only 4 weeks this year, October 13-November 3. We ask you to respond to God’s blessings not just with words but with thankful and generous lives. Holy Trinity’s generosity of spirit, time, skill, and resources is a testament to your faithfulness and God’s goodness.
One way we demonstrate our thankfulness and generosity is to make an annual financial pledge to the parish. All giving is important, but pledging allows the vestry to plan our year and is a sign of your commitment to our life together.
Some of us meet or exceed the biblical tithe of giving 10% of our income to the church. Others are working toward that goal. Some are just learning the freedom that comes from regular sacrificial giving, and others are just starting to think of themselves as a part of this wonderful parish community. Wherever you are on your faith journey and in building a healthy relationship with your finances, I hope you will consider making or increasing your pledge to this parish. Each year the money for our ministries, buildings, worship, clergy, and staff come from your pledges and giving.
Pledge cards are in the church office. You may mail it in, bring it to Sunday worship, or pledge online here.
May God bless and keep you,
