The Annual Fund TRINITY EPISCOPAL CHURCH


LETTER FROM THE RECTOR


Dear Members and Friends of Trinity Episcopal Church, This has been quite a year! As I mentioned a year ago, our plan was to launch a Christian preschool at Trinity in the fall of 2019, and by God’s grace we were successful. As of this writing, we have just over 25 children enrolled, and the plan is to double our enrollment in 2020. This has been a dream of mine since my arrival in 2012, and it is only because of your generosity and the dedication and commitment of our staff, that the Trinity Episcopal Preschool has become a reality. We continue to grow both in spiritual depth and in number. Incredibly, in 2019 we added 65 new people to our parish family. We grew in Average Sunday Attendance (ASA) by 4% and we continue to be the strongest growing parish in the Diocese of Central Florida. Our Children’s Program continues to grow with new folks coming from the Preschool. Our plan for 2020 is to focus on community groups with the launch of our new Foyer Groups, the rollout of a new Men’s group and Family Nights for our current parish and preschool families. Given that almost 150 new people have joined Trinity in the past two years, it’s important that we know each other and that we are committed to our walk as brothers and sisters in Christ together. But of course, all of this growth requires resources. Our Annual Fund Goal this year is $1,600,000. For our seasonal folks, please consider our operating expenses do not decrease off season and that your generous support allows us to be ready for your return. Our continued growth is up to you. Please prayerfully consider your financial support of your parish as we work side by side for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Yours in Christ, Fr Chris Rodriguez


WHAT IS

THE 2020 ANNUAL FUND?

The Annual Fund provides the yearly operating income for the mission and ministry of Trinity Episcopal Church and is a reflection of our call to Biblical Stewardship. It must be renewed every year with your annual pledge. Trinity Episcopal Church is funded solely by the members and friends of this parish. We receive no money from the Diocese, the Episcopal Church or any other organization. All of the financial support of our Annual Fund comes from members and friends of Trinity Episcopal Church like you.

LOOKING AHEAD

Foyer Groups

Men’s Ministry

Family Nights

Fostering relationships among current members and connections for new members, the informal hospitality of Foyer Groups creates a welcoming atmosphere of Christian Fellowship. If you like to eat, socialize and share good fun with fellow Christians, then Foyer Groups are for you.

Our Men’s Ministry will promote fellowship, mutual support and encouragement for the men in our parish as we pursue the Christian’s call to biblical manhood. Just as our Women’s Groups provide regular opportunities for community formation, so too will our Men’s Ministry connect the men in our parish with each other as we pursue God’s call on our lives.

Enjoying one another’s presence is the primary goal of our familycentered activity nights. Taking multiple forms such as trivia nights, potlucks, movie nights and date nights, these evenings unify our parishioner and preschool families.
