TGC Christmas Offering - website banner (green).jpg

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

The Christmas Offering is an annual tradition at Trinity Grace Church — our yearly opportunity to be generous beyond regular giving, with a focus on meeting needs in our church community, our city, and across the world.

This year, our goal is to raise $60,000 for our initiatives: the Deacons' Fund, the Justice Fund and Our Next Generation.

DEACONS’ FUND

Our deacon’s fund is used to respond in generosity and care to the practical needs that arise in our church. We long to embody the vision of the Jesus community we see in Acts 2:45 and 4:35; where the believers gave sacrificially to meet the needs of those among them. Each year we use this fund to help with groceries, rent, medical expenses, metro cards, family emergency travel, and many other urgent needs within our church family.

JUSTICE FUND

We are committed to being a church that responds in generous, tangible expressions of love to the most apparent needs and vulnerable populations in our city. We use our justice fund to support our ongoing partnerships with service and care organizations in our city, such as Safe Families, Mother to Mother, and Trellis. We also use a portion of this fund to respond to more urgent and temporary needs that arise in our neighborhoods. This fund is entirely outward focused towards serving our city.

NEXT GENERATION

Our hope and prayer is to see the Kingdom of God coming in Brooklyn as it is in Heaven not just today and tomorrow, but for years and years to come. We have a faith-filled conviction that we need to make a generous deposit in the next generation of followers of Jesus in our church and in our city. We have a growing children’s and student ministry at TGC and our hope is to see those ministries expand and be even more fullY supported by our church family. We long to put down deep roots in our borough both by equipping ministry to the next generation as well as finding space for our church to thrive for many years to come.
