Trinity member Melody Hart recounts how important her church and its youth group were in her formation of “who I am” today. To ensure that Trinity can continue its various missions including its youth group in its third century, she endorses adding to the general endowment to advance our ministries for the future. It is, she maintains, part of our legacy to future generations.
Trinity’s endowment fund was established almost 100 years ago with seed gifts from two visionary churchmen, Samuel and William Mather. Permanently invested, income from these and subsequent gifts provide annual operating and some capital project support. A larger endowment fund would expand Trinity’s capacity for property maintenance, congregational vitality, and youth and outreach ministry.
Increasing Trinity’s endowment fund is one of many projects under prayerful discernment (consideration) by members over the next several weeks.
