Upcoming Church Service
Don’t like to use cash or checks anymore? We have now made it possible for you to give offerings and donations to Trinity electronically, thanks to a partnership with PushPay. Through their service, you can give your offering via computer or smart-phone, using a credit card, debit card, or direct withdrawal from a bank account. You can set up a one-time gift or a recurring weekly or monthly offering. Donations can be designated for our General Fund, Building Fund, or Missions, and you will still receive your regular year-end statements for tax purposes. To get started, text TRINITYREDBUD to 77977. PushPay will text back right away to walk you through the set-up process, which takes only a few minutes. Thank you for your continued support of Trinity. You can also use the online giving tab at the top of the screen.
