Thank you for your generous gifts to the Challenge Campaign! Still Thinking About Giving? It’s Not Too Late!

Over the past several months we have been running a Challenge Campaign to help offset the costs of the Rock Creek Road House project. That campaign is scheduled to close on Friday, September 30, 2016.

We are SO EXCITED to report that not only did we raise those funds, but we surpassed that goal, raising a total of $168,121.22 for the campaign thus far.

Despite raising the intended funds to offset the purchase price of the house, there will still be costs associated with preparing to use the Rock Creek Road property for the ministries of Trinity UMC. Thus, the campaign is still open. Anyone who feels called is still welcomed and encouraged to give to this project. Visit: and be sure to select Challenge Campaign to give.

We appreciate the generosity of those who have given to this project and those still considering a gift. God is so good. We look forward to the many ways this property will be used in the future.

Thank You, Trinity!

Our Challenge Campaign comes from a generous offer from a Trinity member to match dollar for dollar all gifts received by September 30 up to half of the purchase amount of the 7916 Rock Creek Rd. property. (Trinity recently purchased the house, surrounded by our parking lot, as we have been seeking to do for 20 years.) That is to say, if we raise $150,000, they will give the other $150,000. Paying off the purchase will keep it from being a burden on our church budget and ministries. The matching gift is for actual donations (not pledges).

Checks may be made to Trinity UMC and designated “Challenge Campaign” on the memo line. Donations to this campaign can also be made via our online giving portal at and selecting the “Challenge gift” item.

God is doing exciting things here at Trinity.
