God loves a cheerful giver. —
2 Corinthians 9:7
A vibrant ministry takes giving of all kinds in order to be sustainable.
Giving to the Lord and Trinity
Here at Trinity we pride ourselves on using the various resources with which God has blessed us: the people, the talents, the property and facilities, and the financial gifts given to us.
Trinity Family shares gifts
Trinity Family members share their gifts with us in a variety of ways: through singing, praying for each other, helping in Worship, creating art, cooking meals, nurturing children and others in the faith, providing leadership on our Council, serving on committees and task groups, working in our beautiful garden, and giving from their financial resources.
Trinity shares its building and grounds
We have been blessed with a beautiful building and land from our forbears and are happy to share this with so many: Connections Church NYC, Our World Neighborhood Charter School, the Astoria Choir, the Metropolitan New York Synod of the Lutheran Church diakonia program, our neighbors who use parking spaces in our lot.
How financial gifts are used
Money contributed to Trinity is far-reaching. Financial contributions support our parish and its staff, but also help maintain our historic Skinner organ and Steinway piano and aging neo Gothic building.
Your regular offering also helps support:
Community Supper – with ministry to those in a family shelter
Spanish language materials for bible study & other ministries
Confidential support group & discussion groups on various topics
Maintaining our garden
Support for seed money to new congregations being created here in Metro NY and across the USA
Chaplains at military bases, college campuses and hospitals
Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem that provides care for Palestinian and Jewish patients
Missionaries in many countries around the world
Food and water resources, helping dig wells, cultivate crops and provide jobs
Seminary training for pastors and lay leaders of the church
Advocacy for justice and peace initiatives
