2016-17 Stewardship Pledge

It's not too late to turn in your pledge card.  If you did not get a pledge card, please contact Linda at the office or Joyce Saveika



In the name of God we welcome you to Trinity Episcopal Church. 


We are pleased that you have found our website and hope to meet you in person soon.  If there is something you would like to know about Trinity do not hesitate to phone us at 757-393-0431 or to e-mail our Sr. Warden, at 


We are a group of people who love the Lord our God and seek to preach, teach, heal, and make disciples in all things we do.  We come from a variety of different backgrounds but what binds us together is our commitment to becoming better followers of Jesus Christ.  As Episcopalians the Book of Common Prayer is our theology book. We firmly hold that what we pray is what we believe and this shapes how we live. The best way to find out more about who we are is to join us for worship.


Like Christians everywhere, we believe in Jesus Christ, as expressed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. We believe in the Holy Scriptures, understood through reason and tradition. We believe that the Sacraments, including Baptism and Holy Communion, are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual graces. These beliefs are held in common by Episcopalians, and the Church also values a holy curiosity.  



October 16, 2016 Ingathering Sermon


Dear friends,        Image Jim Sell

We got off to a strong start last Sunday with the launch of our Stewardship season.

Thirty-six households pledged a little over $70,000.00. The spirit of love and hope that pervaded both services was beautiful. At 10:30, our littlest children and those who needed a little physical assistance to come forward led the procession to the blessing of the  pledges.

Of course, we have just begun. If you were not able to be in church last Sunday, we hope you will plan to come this coming week or drop off your pledge at the office.

Below, is a slightly reduced version of my sermon last Sunday. I have been encouraged by some who heard it to make it available to you. If you have not pledged, we especially hope you will read it before you present your card to the church.

It would be a healthy situation if we could go far beyond last year’s pledges of $95,000. I real stretch would look like about $125,000.

Best love,                      Click here to read Jim's Ingathering Sermon
