ONLINE GIVING

helping seekers to become believers
and believers to become disciples.

The church uses the tithes and offerings received to keep the lights on, fund ministries, pay pastors and staff, and support local and international organizations serving others as we as believers are called to do. Scripture is our guiding principle on giving as stated in II Corinthians 9:7-8 (NLT).

WHY ARE WE NEEDING A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN?

We have a beautiful worship and education building that is aging. We are at a point where we have several pressing issues, that are big and heavy, that can’t be handled in our regular budgeting process.

WHEN DOES THE CAMPAIGN START?

The Sustaining Hope 3-Year Capital Campaign will be voted on at the Annual Business Meeting on September 24, 2023 at 5:00 pm in the Mulberry Large Dining Room.

WHEN ARE THE COMMITMENT CARDS DUE?

The Commitment Cards are due by Sunday, October 8, 2023.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON'T DO A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN?

We will either have to piece things together as best as we can and/or we might have to take out a loan.

HOW WILL WE DECIDE WHAT GETS DONE FIRST?

As designated capital funds come in, the Facilities Team will meet and make recommendations. Our Facilities Team meets at a minimum every quarter to evaluate the funds received and prioritize the needs.

WHAT WILL THE SECURITY SYSTEM INCLUDE?

The Security System will include additional new cameras throughout the campuses with electronic entries on some key doors.

WILL THE CAMPAIGN BE OPEN TO DESIGNATED GIFTS?

It is recommended that the gift be given to the overall campaign; however, Matt Homeyer and Mark Barr are available to discuss individual requests in person.

HOW WILL THE CURRENT BUDGET SURPLUS IMPACT THE CAMPAIGN?

A significant portion of the one-million dollar gift received this year will be allocated to the campaign.

Check back often for more Q and A on the Capital Campaign.

As stated in II Corinthians 9:7– 8 of the New Living Translation (NLT), “You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully. And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”


MORE WAYS TO GIVE

Legacy/Estate Gifts

You can leave a legacy by remembering Trinity Baptist Church in your will. The Church Administrator would be happy to assist your attorney in setting up an Estate Gift. You can call 210-733-6201 for more information.

Cash & Checks

Cash and checks are the most common way donations are received by the church. Our church sends out giving statements quarterly to ensure we are properly recording any gifts you have given.

Year-end Gifts

Some individuals like to make special year-end gifts to support our ministry. Because all gifts to the church are subject to IRS deadlines, please remember that all year-end gifts must be received in the church office before midnight on December 31, or must be postmarked before the end of December to be deducted in the present tax year. Any gifts received after December 31 and not postmarked in December will be included in the next tax year. The date written on a check will not determine in which tax year a gift is included. Only the actual date of receipt by the church or the postmark will establish the correct tax year for the IRS.

Personal Assets

The church accepts real estate, used vehicles, jewelry, etc.

Stock & Mutual Funds

Stocks or other investments that have grown in value and that you have held for more than one year can become a substantial gift made at a low net cost to you. You receive a charitable deduction for the donation of these assets, and it’s based on their fair market value on the date of the gift. But there’s a bonus– you avoid all federal capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on a sale of the assets. You may even tithe with stock all year and take your cash normally used for tithing and develop a stock portfolio just for future tithing and special giving to God’s work. Or, take a capital loss yourself. If you own securities worth less now than when you purchased them, sell them and contribute the proceeds. Then you can take a capital loss on your tax return, subject to certain limitations, and a charitable deduction for the gift of the proceeds. The church has its own brokerage account and all transactions can be accommodated electronically, without actual stock certificates changing hands.

Scholarships

The church is blessed to be able to provide scholarships annually to members of Trinity Baptist Church who are pursuing a higher education. The reason we are able to provide scholarships is because of the generosity of church members who have made these funds available.

For assistance with giving, call the Church Office at (210) 733-6201.

Grow in Love. Grow in Christlikeness.
Grow in Community. Grow in Service.
