Sharing the Joy of Trinity Through Bountiful Giving
View our 2022 Stewardship Brochure
Dear Friends at Trinity Menlo Park,
Last year we invited you to join us in “Seeking Christ in CommUNITY” while our Trinity community grappled with unprecedented challenges of indeterminate duration. We are deeply grateful to those whose collective magnanimity allowed Trinity’s ministries to flourish notwithstanding the constraints of COVID and recovery from malfeasance.
Your gifts resulted in expanded Sunday Worship experiences, both on campus and online, with an extraordinary investment in equipment operated by an outstanding volunteer tech crew. Trinity’s magnificent maestros Valentino and Hoffmeister composed and arranged Music to suit small sub-sets of musicians and vocalists. Impactful opportunities in furtherance of Care and Justice offered meaningful engagement in the way of Christ, benefiting both internal and external communities.
None of this would have been possible without enormous support from parishioners giving generously of their talent, time, and treasure. Unfortunately, however, pledges and gifts in total were down from prior years, and Trinity is operating at a structural deficit.
Trinity’s mission as the body of Christ continues, and in this time of thankful giving, we invite you to express and expand your commitment to Trinity’s vitality. 2022 promises to be a year of growth, hope, and opportunity as we embark upon the search for Trinity’s next rector. That paramount undertaking brings greater urgency to fiscal soundness and full participation in stewardship as our parish seeks to attract candidates of the highest caliber.
Your pledge to Sharing the Joy of Trinity through Bountiful Giving will …
The Joy that Trinity can share depends entirely upon your Bountiful Giving. Trinity is gift that we give to ourselves and each other. As you determine your gift or pledge, please consider what Trinity means to you and to others in our community. Trinity is counting on all of us.
