And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces. Luke 9:16-17, NRSV
When we are generous with our financial resources, we have More than Enough. When we are generous with each other and our neighbors, the light of Christ shines all around us and others can experience God’s warmth and vibrancy. When it is apparent that we value generosity, we can encourage generosity in others. A community of generous people is a glorious thing.
When we are generous in the way we fill out our pledge cards, our church has more resources with which to face our future. We have the money to pay the staff. We have money to keep our grounds and our buildings in good condition. We have the money to update our technology so that our church can continue to function in the 21st century.
Below are letters and testimonials from Trinity members and Episcopalians around the country about why they make pledges to support their churches each year:

Now, more than ever, we have the opportunity to offer our wisdom, wealth, and work to shape the future of Trinity Church. We ask that you prayerfully consider what your family is able to pledge to Trinity Church in the year to come.
