An invitation to joy

Each year, our Christmas Offering supports key initiatives in our church family as we join God in the renewal of our city and world. We invite you to pray about how you can contribute beyond your regular annual financial commitment to Trinity Grace. Thank you for your generosity!

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

support our deacons fund

Every year, our Christmas Offering helps replenish our Deacons Fund to provide financial resources for anyone in our church community in need of support in hard times.

one in heart and mind

Whether money is tight for groceries or a metro card, if a medical emergency comes up, if it’s hard to make ends meet for rent, or anything in between… our Deacons assess needs and steward these funds to provide support.

We aim to be like the early church in the Book of Acts: “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.”

a season of giving 

We live in a culture where spirituality cannot be separated from generosity. The needs of our city and of the world are impossible to ignore. The teachings of Jesus implore us to give to those in need and to commit ourselves to an ethic of generosity. The Scriptures say that God loves a cheerful giver, not because the church's needs are met, but because God's heart is made glad when we depend on him to provide for us.

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
