If you have not done so, please bring your pledge card to Trinity Church this Sunday.
Annual Giving — 2016
As of November 17th we have received 61 pledges for 2016, totaling $175,780, including 5 new pledging units (families). This represents 72% of the $242,476 pledged for 2015. There were a total of 95 pledges last year.
2015 Annual Budget —
Where We Stand
Budgeted pledges for 2015 — $234,000
Anticipated pledge receipt through Nov. 17th — $204,750
Actual pledge receipts through Nov 17th — $194,595
(This is 95% of the total pledged and currently is $10,155 less than expected by this date)
Please make every effort to bring your pledge payment up to date—or even exceed your promised offerings.
Our beautiful building is a huge part of who we are at Trinity.The City of Columbus required that an inspection be done at Trinity that identified 22 hazardous conditions. We are required by the City to repair those hazards. The quote for making all of the repairs is just over $28,000. The Vestry and the Endowment Committee believe that funding these exterior repairs is the responsibility of the entire congregation, not of the endowment.
Trinity’s elected leaders have responded with joyful generosity to this crisis, pledging a total of $8,000 toward the repairs. Now we are asking those of you who are able to respond with equal generosity. Please write “Exterior repairs” in the memo line of your check.
Please consider your gift prayerfully.

THIS WEEK WE REMEMBER IN PRAYER:We remember all who work for peace around the world, and especially this day we pray for our nation and other international partners discerning war and peace and wisdom in this time of terror and violence. Remembering friends and family members related to this community, we pray for Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Matt Schumann, Captain Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
For peace in a war torn world, especially in Syria; and for women, children and men who journey for freedom and seek refuge from conflict. May God give us compassion and greater courage to offer hope and help to refugees and all in need.
We renew our commitments to serve the neediest and most easily forgotten in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today. We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
We pray for all who are sick or suffering at this time – Doug Nolan, Ava Guglielmi, Mary Beittel, Jonie Johnson, Cliff Miller, Dick Oman, Dave Mozano, Pauline Austin, Jan Heston, Frances Bennekamper, Gayle Nash, Jayla Kennedy, Sharon Whaley, Hal Duryee and others whom we name silently or aloud.
