As you know from the Christmas letter (and from past experience if you’ve been around Trinity for a while), our commitment to the larger United Methodist Church is a big one. It is worth every penny because the UMC’s ministries truly make a difference in our world. This year, your support throughout the year combined with your generous Christmas donations allowed us to meet 100% of our commitment! In addition, we were able to send $2,000 to the Imagine No Malaria project. And as I prepared all of this on Thursday, Trinity folks were fighting hunger at Hope Food Pantry all morning. As I wrapped up Thursday afternoon, Trinity folks were preparing to host 30-40 men, providing a filling meal and shelter against the bitter cold. What a day! Trinity – you are amazing.
