Mission  Outreach

Holy Trinity is committed to allocating 10% of its annual general revenue to Mission Outreach projects. The Mission Outreach Committee determines how the 10% congregational tithe is gifted to support local, state, national and international communities. Committee liaisons communicate with each recipient to express gratitude for their work, to encourage them to continue, to support them in prayer and to notify them of Holy Trinity’s financial contribution.
