Extravagant Generosity!
This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way… 2 Cor. 9:11, The Message 

Thank you for continuing to turn in cash register tapes from Econo Foods & Super One Foods. In 2017, we received $2,141.79 from Econo Foods & Super One tapes that you turned in to us. We also collect UPCs from Our Family brand products. Money that we receive for the tapes & UPCs goes to our General Fund. Collection boxes are in the narthex at the Carpenter Ave. entrance & on the bulletin board by the west door to the Sanctuary.

A new leaf, in memory of Mary Conte Swander, has been added to the Endowment Tree in the Gathering Room.

Direct Deposit Giving (DDG) By Dean Laitinen

Oh, no…I didn’t put in my offering this week. Wait, yes, I did. In fact, I’ve given for many weeks now, without doing a thing. I have Direct Deposit Giving, and I feel great. I’ve been giving what I feel I can each week. Supporting my church. And I haven’t even noticed.

I have actually had this thought before. It’s a great feeling to know that I designated what I felt I could give, the interval of time I could give it, and let it go from there. If I need to change the amount, I can do that instantly and confidentially.

I found that I didn’t even realize the amount I gave was gone; and I never had to say, “Oops, I forgot to put in my offering this week.”

DDG has been on the rise at Trinity, and that is great for the consistency and stability of our general fund. It’s so gratifying to know that I am consistently helping to support this special place, from which God does so many great things through the many great people who gather here. Please consider joining us in this by talking to Sally and filling out a DDG slip. Thanks, and God bless!

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) option is available. It’s a quick and fun way to get your offering to the church through the banking system. You fill out a form with your bank’s routing number and your account number (or attach a canceled check) and bring it into the office. We’ll make the rest of the arrangements for you through the Church’s bank…First National. Easy. Fun. And your offerings will be a blessing to us all!
