A Promise we Give
It's Stewardship Season, and we are excited about where God will lead us!
We are Doing God's Work in the World
Almost 175 years ago, some residents of Tariffville joined together in prayer and founded Trinity Church as a worshipping community. After meeting in several different locations around Tariffville, our current brownstone building was consecrated close to 150 years ago.
Since then, Trinity has been a beacon of hope in the Farmington Valley, providing a place of prayer, healing, and worship in the neighborhood, gathering together people of faith who are all part of the rich history of our story here.
Those people of faith and others as time went on are the ones who tended our story, the story of God, throughout our history. We are living out the story of the transformative power of Jesus today, and carrying that good news into the future.
Since the beginning of Christianity, we've seen that Christian growth comes from gathering as a community, and generous sharing of time, talent, and treasure. You, yes you, are invited to come and see how the Lord works when we make an investment in the future of God's story here at Trinity Tariffville.

Why I Give Parish Project
We asked our parishioners "Why do you give?" Here are some of their responses.
Stewardship Chair, Mark Tschiegg tells the story of his start with giving.
Note from the Stewardship Team:
Even in 2023, maybe especially in 2023, God calls us to generous giving.
Let's ask - what difference would it make if Trinity Tariffville didn't exist? How would my life, my family's life, the community's life, be impacted?
As we come back to gathering in person, the story of the Trinity Church Tariffville community continues to be one of faithfulness. Over the past year, we've offered:
Trinity's story is an important one; a story that makes an impact in our communities and the world.
How can I be a part of ensuring this work continues?
It is such a blessing to be part of Trinity Church and God's work, locally and worldwide. Your gifts of volunteering and financial contributions not only allow us to continue to support a thriving Church, but also to fund numerous outreach activities in the local community and in many parts of the world.
Each giver has an impact on, and a hand in, sharing the love and the story of our Lord.
In many of our stewardship testimonies and sermons, we talk about “tithing” as the biblical norm. But we don’t always explain it very well. To learn more about what the Bible teaches about giving for the work of God’s kingdom, click here.
Know that God takes whatever you can give and blesses and grows it to serve each other, our community, and the world.
The Minister of the Congregation is directed to instruct the people, from
In the same way we plan for the current work of the church, the Book of Common Prayer reminds us that good stewardship can continue even after we die. Healthy and vibrant ministries have been built upon the legacies we leave today. Many of our Episcopal institutions exist because past generations cared so much about the future of the Church and expressed their caring by creating planned gifts.
We hope that you will consider including the Trinity Tariffville in your estate or financial plans and help sustain our mission for generations to come. Whatever approach you choose, your gift will honor the vision and mission of Trinity for years to come.
There are many ways to make planned gifts to the church, including:
