The Trinity Grace Church Christmas Offering is a special opportunity to target our giving toward the following initiatives for 2014:
How to Give

Please make checks out to Trinity Grace Church.
You can mail a check, made out to Trinity Grace Church, to our main offices at 21 W 38 St, Fl 2, New York, NY 10018.
TITHES & OFFERINGS
Tithes and offerings support the general operating budget of the local parish--Select your neighborhood parish 'subfund' to ensure your gift is allocated as intended.
City Collective is the church planting arm of Trinity Grace Church, facilitating partnerships with urban churches across the world.
CENTER FOR CITY RENEWAL
The Center for City Renewal exists to equip believers to participate in God's redemptive mission in all of life through education on current issues and mentorship on stewarding privilege for the benefit of others.
The Deacons’ or Benevolence Fund exists so that anyone in our church community can participate in meeting the financial needs of other people in our community.
A number of our staff raise their own support in order to live in this city and serve our community. The fundraising fund and its subfunds facilitate their support-raising.

We live in a culture where spirituality cannot be separated from generosity. The needs of our city and of the world are impossible to ignore. The teachings of Jesus implore us to give to those in need and to commit ourselves to an ethic of generosity. The scriptures say that God loves a cheerful giver, not because the church's needs are met, but because God's heart is made glad when we depend on him to provide for us.
