Fall GIFT Campaign Kick off on

Sunday School Sunday

September 9th




We’re halfway through our GIFT campaign, and looking forward to kicking off the fall portion of the campaign on Sunday School Sunday!


ñ For those of you whom we’ve sat down with, thank you so much for taking the time, and don’t forget to send in your pledge cards if you haven’t already.

ñ For those of you who we haven’t contacted yet, don’t worry.  An Ambassador will see you in September.

ñ With your support, Imagine What Trinity Can Be!


 “As a form of ministry, fundraising is as spiritual as giving a sermon, entering a time of prayer, visiting the sick or feeding the hungry.”
