Welcome to the Holy Trinity Community Church Legacy Society
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms – 1 Peter 4:10
We are only trustees for those that come after us. – William Morris
A gift to the church in your Will may be the most important gift you ever give. Ask how your gift today can bless future generations. The Holy Trinity Community Church Legacy Society is about making a choice to live and give towards making a better future for those we care about - including our Holy Trinity family. And one thing you can do right now to help ensure that better future is to make a Will that provides for your family and blesses your faith community’s work.
Holy Trinity Community Church believes in being able to meet people’s needs through ministry in a few months, years, and even decades. Including a gift to the church in your Will can help do that - without affecting your finances now. No matter how much you can give, with a bequest, you can strengthen your church family and make a difference for the future. We are all concerned, in one way or another, about leaving behind a positive Legacy. That is why we work hard on being the best parent, grandparent, friend, and community member that we can possibly be. By including Holy Trinity Community Church, United Church of Christ, (Memphis), in our Will, we can also leave a positive Legacy for our Faith and our Church, all without impacting our current income.
